There have been a lot of celebrities to go on Dancing with the Stars. Some of them had their time on the show end up in humiliation either from injury, stumbling through a routine, or being put in insane outfits.
Believe it or not, there is a lot of preparation that goes into a routine — including costumes. Both the celebrities and professional dancers often douse themselves in self-tanner and put on elaborate outfits to fit the theme behind some routines. Some of these themes have given us some of the strongest performances on the show. Others have just given us the wackiest outfits.
But which fall to the bottom of the list? Here are the 15 celebrity costumes on the competition show, ranked from bad to outright insane.
15. Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff
WIth help from pro Julianne Hough, Apolo Anton Ohno became the champion of Season 4. But he later came back for more dancing and crazy outfits by joining the all-star season. That time, he was paired with Karina Smirnoff.
The two paired up to tackle a hip-hop dance. As if that wasn’t already a big risk to cause the Olympic speed skater some embarrassment, they had him dress up in this outrageous outfit. The partners were in gold, black, and fishnets for their routine.
The cheesy outfits were designed to match the routine’s song, Bell Biv Davoe’s “Poison.” The early 2000’s were pretty cheesy for fashion. However, it’s amped up by these two, who look like fish out of water in the outdated outfits.
