Season 31 features several contestants with extensive dance experience
Charli D’Amelio has been a competitive dancer for most of her life. According to The Washington Post, D’Amelio started dancing at the age of three and is trained in ballet, hip-hop and tap.
Gabby Windey, who is also a “Dancing With the Stars” contestant, was a professional cheerleader. According to CBS ColoradoWindey tried out for the team three times before joining her in 2016, and she told the outlet she manages stress through dancing, which is her passion.
Some fans feel this makes the competition unfair, even though there are professional dancers on the show have said that they believe it can be difficult to have a partner with dance experience in an area other than the ballroom because in addition to learning they have things to unlearn.
Fans spoke about the fairness on social media
Some people took to Twitter to talk about whether or not they thought Dancing With the Stars season 31 was fair.
“My main problem is that [Charli] has the unfair advantage of having over 100 million followers voting for her without even having to watch the show. one person tweeted. “That’s not going to give any other competitor who also has a great chance of winning…well, that.”
another person wrote, “The fact that Charli D’Amelio has worked with Derek Hough multiple times is an unfair advantage #DWTS.”
“Don’t get me wrong Charli did a great job last night but once again she’s a professionally trained dancer so she has an unfair advantage.” one person wrote.
With Windey, some people weren’t sure they wanted to vote for her.
“I’m torn between ‘Gabby and Val were great so I should vote for them’ and ‘ABC please stop casting Bachelor Nation girls who have a lot of dance experience'” one person wrote.
Many said they voted for her anyway because they were impressed, although some pointed out that she brushed it off when co-host Alfonso Ribeiro shared that she had dance experience.
“That was her way of acknowledging it by pretending to shut up Alfonso when he said she had dance experience and joking because she knows she has experience and a lot of viewers hate that. If you see her with the bachelorette you’ll be more familiar with her sense of humor, but I think the joke didn’t resonate with a lot of people. reads an answer.
Some people don’t think dance experience is a problem.
“I don’t mind dance experience, especially if they have it.” one person wrote. “She said she’s a performer, she’s not techy, so she’s still going to grow and learn a lot!”
