Some “Dancing With the Stars” fans think reigning mirrorball champion Daniella Karagach is “overrated.”
Karagach reached new heights in season 30 of the show when she teamed with NBA star Iman Shumpert. The two overcame a huge difference in altitude and climbed to the top, eventually winning the competition.
Now it has become the professional dancer nominated for an Emmy Award and has become a fan-favorite professional dancer.
Some fans think Karagakh is overrated
In the answers to a Reddit thread where fans shared their “hot takes,” some said Karagach was an overrated professional dancer.
“I’m not sure if that’s a hot take now, but Daniella’s choreography for Iman repeated with the tricks.” one person answered. “People make Sasha (rightfully so) because of him and his rep tricks for gymnasts, but Daniella has been doing the same shit all season.”
Other person simply answered“Daniella needs PR training.”
Others simply said that she wasn’t their favorite dancer on the show.
“Also, I think Jenna is a better dancer overall than Daniella.” one person answered to the thread.
another wrote, “Their differences seem very subtle in my opinion, making them difficult to compare. Daniella has more plasticity, softness and grace. Jenna has more strength and flexibility.”
Some think Karagakh is entertaining but not tech-savvy
Others in the answers had different views on Karagakh as a dancer.
“That’s probably unpopular because she’s untouchable here lol.” one answer is. “But I don’t think Dani is the best professional. She has the best personal Latin/Standard technique but lacks the other elements that make the most successful/enjoyable pros.”
another wrote, “Although Dani’s dances have been entertaining so far, I think she still does dances to showcase herself and cover up her celebrity completely, rather than choreographing dances that are easier or make her celebrity look good.”
“Hot Take: Alan [Bernsten] and Dani are really overrated on this sub.” one person wrote. “I love her personality but Alan’s choreo has been boring since he turned pro (and honestly even at DWTSjr) and people love to criticize Witney and Lindsay for their technique but I don’t think Alan is that much better , honestly.”
They added, “As for Dani, a beautiful dancer and a great attitude but not as good at teaching technique (I need more seasons to tell) for her to be called one of the greatest pros.”
One person replied to call the person who wrote the reply a “brave soul.”
“Yes, agree with everything you said.” another wrote. “I think the people on this sup give her the title ‘Greatest Pro’ way too generously. I need to see more of her in terms of mentoring and training and I would definitely like to see her with an older contestant but I think she will be given the same preference as Derek and get the same young, fit celebs with good followings.
Season 31 of Dancing With the Stars premieres on Disney+ on Monday, September 19, 2022. Derek Hough, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba will all return, along with Tyra Banks and new co-host Alfonso Ribeiro.
