‘DWTS’ Fans Argue Ally Brooke and Len Goodman’s Cringe-worthy High Five Controversy
Ally Brooke may be getting good scores on DWTS so far, but when it came to a simple high five this week, she didn’t exactly have stellar results.
Is Len Goodman being unfair or is Ally Brooke talking invading personal space? First what happened!
Left Hanging On DWTS?
Dancing to Success
Ally danced a rumba in honor of her late idol Selena on DWTS this week. She got tons of compliments and high praise for the judges and ended up with a great score of 24/30, tied for the highest of the night! Everything was going so well, right?
That Awkward Moment On DWTS …
Well, not quite. Ally was so excited to have impressed DWTS’s notoriously tough head judge Len Goodman that she ran over to him for a high five. He obliged…but as she ran back to the ballroom floor, he gave her a stern warning of “don’t touch me again”. What? Way to kill the mood, Len!
So, What Was That All About?
We can’t blame Ally for not seeing any fault in wanting to high five Len during her comments, especially after the hug she received from judge Carrie Ann Inaba the week before. It was such a strange moment: Len accepted the high five, then told Ally not to touch him again, then immediately returned to praising her dance. It was just a quick little moment, but one that’s been causing a lot of debate: Was Len Goodman serious, or just playing into the “grumpy old man” role he is known for on DWTS?
How serious do you think Len was about his hands-off comment, and was it rude of him to say? Sound off in the comments below!
