Some ‘Dancing with the Stars’ fans have painted Tyra Banks in a negative light

Some Dancing with the Stars fans have painted Banks in a negative light. Banks took over as host of the series in 2019 and assumed the executive producer role for the long-running dance competition show.

On social media, fans have blamed Banks for an overall ratings decline as well as for other actions that sparked heated debate among some fans. Some have even called for her to be removed as host. According to fans, Banks’ transgressions include talking over judges, not giving eliminated celebrities a chance to say a proper goodbye, and attempting to make DWTS her personal runway.

Fans also united on some changes they believe should occur before season 31. These include bringing back pro numbers, featuring Banks less, and not announcing the winner after the credits begin to roll.

Banks shared a message for a ‘new year, new you’ that resonated with fans

Banks shared a post on her Instagram account where she encouraged her followers to “repeat this three times.”

“Reach your dreams.” She wrote “It’s a new year. It’s a new you. You got this.”

An accompanying image shared the following message. “You got beauty, got booty. You got brains.”

Fans reacted positively to this affirmation.

“Tell ’em again!” exclaimed one follower.

“Okay but did anyone else try to imagine Tyra was saying this out loud or just me?” asked a second fan.

“That’s what’s up Tyra dreaming is half the battle finishing it is the reward,” penned a third fan.

“Mantra 2022 and beyond. More girls need to hype themselves up. And also cheer on their friends,” wrote a fourth Instagram user.

Will ‘Dancing with the Stars’ return to ABC in 2022?

Thus far, Dancing with the Stars has not been renewed for season 31.

However, the ABC network has not yet announced its fall 2022 schedule. Therefore, while it appears the show’s future is in limbo, it technically is not.

Fall renewals are announced by the networks closer to spring each year. So it could be a few months until ABC reveals its fall programming, including renewals of past favorites and shows that will make their debut. Fans may also find out if Dancing with the Stars host Tyra Banks will return.

Dancing with the Stars is currently on hiatus.
