Viewers of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” are calling out some of the professional dancers on the show by offering their unpopular opinions.
In a Reddit thread which was released on Sunday March 20th, 2022, fans discussed topics such as who they think are the most talented dancers and which of the professional dancers they think have the biggest egos.
The original thread began by stating that the “veteran pros” should retire to let new talent shine as it was “not fair to their celebrity partners,” and then went on to talk about individual professional dancers, particularly Artem Chigvintsev and his future on the show.
Fans think Artem Chigvintsev should quit
In the main post on Reddit, the person asked dancer Artem Chigvintsev to leave the show.
“As much as I love Artem to death, I think it’s time for him to retire from DWTS,” they wrote. “I feel like he’s always been kind of dirty from the show and now that he’s got his mirror ball I think that’s a good ending for him. I would love to see him immerse himself in the culinary world or whatever else interests him.”
one person replied, “Unfortunately I agree 5. Artem is my favorite male professional and I would be sad if he left, but the producers never appreciated him and his talent. He’s better off without the show.”
“A) agree Artem, he is my favorite male pro. I’m super glad he got his mirror ball and I would be really sad if he left but I understand if he does.” another person wrote.
Some believe Chigvintsev is “not appreciated” by DWTS
Others responded to the thread about Chigvintsev and agreed with the original post, saying they think the show isn’t treating him the way it should.
“I agree with that too” one person wrote. “They never appreciated him, and I have a feeling he would have grown even bigger if he’d stayed strictly with him. I think that’s the producer’s fault because he only emphasizes certain benefits.”
Another person wrote, “Artem is fantastic and also my favorite. Out of selfishness I want him on the show but yeah the show didn’t treat him the way he deserved. But he’s super super talented in a lot of other areas…he builds, he cooks (and likes to cook from scratch and things I can’t cook), he draws and he does them all very, very well.”
There is no indication that Chigvintsev plans to leave the show in the near future. He is currently touring with the rest of the Dancing With the Stars 2022 Live Tour and competed in Season 30, although he won his Mirrorball Trophy in Season 29 alongside Kaitlyn Bristowe. That means if he was just waiting to win the show, he probably would have already done so.
Other than that, Chigvintsev is busy. He’s planning a wedding to his fiancée Nikki Bella and spending time with their son Matteo, who was born before the final season of Dancing With the Stars.
“Time is precious ❤️ every second”, he wrote as a caption in a post where he shared photos with Matteo.
Dancing With the Stars has not yet been renewed for season 31. If renewed, the show will return sometime in mid-September 2022.
