Many fans of Dancing with the Stars have shared their wish for former hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews to return to the show. Tyra Banks replaced them this season, and her performance hasn’t gone over well with everyone.
Tom and Erin were fired from the show ahead of the current season. Tom, meanwhile, has been making a few digs of his own on Twitter. Read on to see what fans had to say about the change-up.
Fans Want Former ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Hosts Back
On Tuesday night, as the second episode of the new season aired, one fan tweeted a photo of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. “Mom & Dad pleeease come back,” they wrote. “We miss you. The new nanny sucks.”
The tweet currently has over a thousand likes, so it’s safe to say plenty of other Dancing with the Stars fans agree that executive producer Tyra Banks can’t compare to the former hosts. Some Twitter users made their dislike of Tyra pretty clear in the replies.
“Tyra stinks!” one fan wrote. Another said she’s “ruining the show” and “needs to shut up.” During the first elimination of the season, one fan even wondered, “Can we please have the option of eliminating @tyrabanks?”
Users also claimed that Tyra is making the show all about her, as well as asking the contestants stupid questions. One fan even predicted that the show will “turn on her” and rehire Tom Bergeron.
Tom Bergeron Shades ‘DWTS’
After 15 years hosting Dancing with the Stars, Tom Bergeron was fired from the show before the current season. He tweeted in July that his time on the show was “the most unexpected gift of my career.”
Tom’s rep also responded to his firing with a cheeky comment, saying, “ABC opted not to pick up Tom’s option. In the fine tradition of Hollywood cliches, they’re ‘going in a different direction.’”
Since his firing, Tom has taken a few lighthearted jabs at his former employer. He changed his Twitter bio to “Former Co-Host of ‘Footwork With the Famous,'” and earlier this month he seemed to poke fun at a poster featuring new host Tyra Banks with mirrors on her lips.
Tom held a mirrorball up to his mouth, writing, “National Association of Lip Safety cautions against applying multiple small mirrors on mouth. One bad chew and it’s 7 years of bad luck.”
