Dancing With the Stars 2013: Do the Surprise Eliminations Make You Dislike the Show?
Dancing With the StarsSeason 17 has had its fair share of shocking eliminations, and none more so than watching Elizabeth Berkleyhead home on the same night she scored a perfect 30 for her Trio and landed in second place on the leaderboard.
Derek Hough has blamed the new voting system — in which votes based on the previous week's performances are combined with scores from the current week to decide who goes home, for the surprising eliminations — though many fans argue that Elizabeth (and other apparent frontrunners like Christina Milian) just wasn't connecting with the audience, and wouldn't have gotten enough votes to keep going no matter what.
While some fans are thrilled to see hardworking underdogs like Jack Osbourne, Bill Engvall, and Leah Remini last, others are in an uproar over Elizabeth's elimination. This show has always been as much about personality and popularity as dancing, and that seems truer than ever this season.
We want to know what you think: did Elizabeth's elimination make you lose faith in the show, or are you perfectly happy to see stronger dancers go home in favor of more entertaining and engaging contestants?
