‘Dancing With The Stars’ Allegedly Struggling Ratings-Wise Due To Olivia Jade’s College Admissions Scandal
Dancing With the Stars Season 30 has not allegedly been faring well when it comes to ratings because of celebrity contestant, Olivia Jade.
In its Oct. 25 issue, In Touch Weekly claimed that the people behind the hit ABC reality TV competition made a wrong decision by inviting Jade to be part of the show.
After all, her critics are still not over the shameful college admissions scandal that she and her entire family was involved in.
“The college admissions scandal is too fresh in everyone’s mind. It’s no surprise ratings have sunk. DWTS is in a free fall and there may be no way to stop it,” the source said.
Earlier this week, Jade was also forced to shut down the rumors that she and her pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy have been hooking up.
On her TikTok account, the reality TV star said that she and Chmerkovskiy are nothing more than friends. Jade added that she adores Chmerkovskiy’s wife, Jenna Johnson.
Meanwhile, fans were also disgusted to see host Tyra Banks trying to look like Britney Spears when Dancing With the Stars paid tribute to the singer.
“Tyra is just not pulling off this Britney look at all. This is a disaster,” the source said.
But the biggest mistake of Dancing With the Stars had to do with their decision to let go of former hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron.
“Their biggest mistake was firing the beloved Tom Bergeron last summer. Even Erin Andrews had a strong following. Producers underestimated Tom’s connection to the audience and now he is having the last laugh,” the source said.
In order to try and salvage Dancing With the Stars Season 30, the producers, directors, and cast members are allegedly having emergency meetings.
They want to figure out what they can do differently to help boost the show’s ratings
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.
After all, the tabloid was unable to provide concrete proof or even actual numbers that the ratings for Dancing With the Stars Season 30 are not as high as the creators would expect.
It’s also true that the team made a mistake by hiring Jade as one of this season’s contestants. After all, Dancing With the Stars is known for inviting the most controversial individuals from the industry to be part of the show.
