If we had to pick one MVP of Dancing With the Stars, the award would clearly go to host Tom Bergeron. Week in and week out Tom manages to keep the whole extravaganza rolling on time, and he does it with his signature blend of charm, wit, and good humor. So it's no surprise at all to hear that he's being recognized for his mad hosting skills.
Tom has once again been recognized by the Television Journalists Association with a nomination for Best Reality Host. This is the fourth year these awards have been around, and Tom has been nominated every year so far. He won last year, and tied for the win with So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley in 2012.
This year Tom is once again up against Cat, as well as Carson Daly (The Voice), Gordon Ramsay (MasterChef), RuPaul (RuPaul's Drag Race) and Neil deGrasse Tyson (Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey). What a great group, right? While we're obviously pulling for Tom, basically any of these nominees would be worthy winners.
Tom's new co-host, Erin Andrews, already gave him some love about the nom, tweeting, "No BRAINER to nominate @Tom_Bergeron for "Best Reality Host" #CriticsChoice...just watch our dress rehearsal!! @DancingABC #congrats."
"Thanks, Erin!" Tom replied. "Our dress rehearsals could be a pay-per view bonanza!"
As we all saw during the finale, the Dancing With the Stars dress rehearsals look like a ton of fun. We'd pay to see that!
