Dear Tom Bergeron, not only does Dancing with the Stars have a "3" paddle, they have a "2" — and they've used it. As Michael Bolton's shame turns to anger — to be called out in front of his own mama! — over that "worst Jive ever" comment, we can't help but stroll down DWTS memory lane, wondering what other dances might be vying for "worst" designation. We've already cobbled together a list of the 5 worst dancers in DWTS history, but most of them coasted by on 4s and 5s. Who else has been graced with a 3, or worse? Let's take a look.
Season 2: Master P
No use of the word "worst" on DWTS is complete without referencing Master P, arguably the worst dancer in the show's history. He didn't want to be there to begin with and it was obvious. He got to Week 4 on generous 4s, 5s and 6s, but on Week 4 the judges laid down the law. His embarrassing Paso Doble to "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" was understood all too well to be a turkey. Carrie Ann Inaba kindly gave him a 4. Both Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli gave him 2s for a total score of 8, still the lowest to date.
Season 3: Tucker Carlson
The political broadcaster was eliminated first on Season 3 after an unimpressive Cha-Cha-Cha to "Dancing in the Street." Carrie Ann kindly gave it a 5. Len went for a 4. Bruno, in his way, gave it a 3. The total score, 12, matches Bolton's Season 11 numbers, but for him Len was the kind one who gave out the 5.
Season 8: Steve "The Woz" Wozniak
You can only go so far on The Worm. The Woz learned that on Week 3 of Season 8 when he performed what was supposed to be a Samba to "Jump In The Line (Shake, Senora)." It was greeted with disappointment from the judges, who went for a 4, 3, 3 verdict. That score of 10 is lower than Bolton's but higher than Master P's, who remains the Master of low scores. Magically, The Woz's charm allowed him to stay another week on the show ... where he was given straight 4s for a score of 12.
