Dancing with the Stars reportedly replacing Tyra Banks as host

Dancing with the Stars Season 30 had some great moments, from Iman Shumpert’s surprising win to JoJo Siwa’s first same-sex duo, to Amanda Kloots‘ touching story.

However, many fans on social media couldn’t get past one big problem with the season.

It seems DWTS fans believed that Tyra Banks was taking the focus off the dancers and trying to put it all on herself.

While we previously reported that producers didn’t blame Tyra for the dropping ratings, it looks like they might be making a change anyway and removing her as the host for Season 31.

Dancing with the Stars replacing Tyra Banks?

While Dancing with the Stars producers didn’t blame Tyra Banks for the declining ratings, they might be looking at a way to bring in more fans.

The Sun reports that DWTS is possibly looking for an “A-list” celebrity to replace Tyra Banks as the show’s host.

In Season 30, things got worse when it came to Tyra Banks.

Fans questioned her bizarre costumes and Tyra at one point said she felt it was a good thing because her dresses had people talking about the show. Sadly, people should be talking about the show’s dancers, and many fans said they stopped watching because of Tyra.

It also didn’t help that Tyra tried to talk as much as the judges, which caused her to cut many of the judges off when time ran low.

There is no reason to think an A-list celebrity would be any better.

The reports indicate that the execs and producers, which include Banks, will meet with ABC to “map out 2022.” There are many who feel that Season 30 was Tyra’s last in front of the camera for DWTS.

It sounds like Dancing with the Stars is thinking big and want to find an Oscar, Emmy or Grammy-winning star to come on to replace Tyra.

Dancing with the Stars dancing changes

There will also likely be changes when it comes to the dancers as well.

Usually, the dancers are smaller stars or ones that were famous in the past. This season, there was an attempt to make things fresh by bringing in two teenagers in JoJo Siwa and Suni Lee and another young contestant in Olivia Jade.

In Dancing with the Stars Season 30, producers reportedly want to find “at least one or ideally two major household names that fascinate fans.”

Dancing with the Stars is on hiatus. It should return in late 2022.

  1. Good riddance to bad rubbish. She ruins everything she touches. Two failed talk shows that top model show now dancing with the stars. I didn’t even like her on fresh prince of bel air back in the day. She’s horrible and rude

  2. Thank you for finally listening to the viewers. I have missed watching this awesome show. It is awesome knowing Tyra will no longer be on ruining the show. Now can’t wait for the new show to begin. THANK YOU!!!!!

  3. Good timing…I just left a message at ABC to let them know that I wouldn’t be tuning into the Tyra Banks Show next season. I told them that I hit the mute button every time she opened up her mouth. I’ll ditch 30 seasons of being a fan if they don’t replace her.

  4. I also have stopped watching the show because of Tyra. She is HORRIBLE!! She does everything she can to focus on herself—from her hideous outfits to her Big mouth.
    Please get rid of her NOW!!!

    • Yes except Erin, ring back Brooke or pair Tom with a former retired dance star as a host. Tony Delavoni? He was kind & gentle or a famous lady that retired like Cheryl Burke? I dint care for Erin either. Never did like Carrie Ann, could let Julianne Hough replace her, she is a dancer, choreographer, actress & a winner.

  5. She wasn’t the greatest host, but maybe she tried to hard, thinking she had to make up for the loss of 2 previous hosts, so tried talking too much. Her outfits & the fact that she changed outfits for an hour or more show, actually kind of pissed me off, not sure why.

  6. I am one that stopped watching this year. It seemed to become more about Tyra Banks and not the dancers. I have never disliked Tyra just doesn’t seem to be a good fit for this show I would like to see someone like Alfonso Ribeiro become the host. He knows what it’s like to dance on the show and he has hosted other shows.

  7. My solution to the Tyra Banks’ problem was easy. I recorded the show and was able to fast forward through her every time she walked out or spoke! So, I was able to enjoy all the talented dancers!! Would still like Tom back….love him!!

  8. Same sex did it for me also, next thing you know they’ll have gender change people, might as well throw the show out the window, oh, and get rid of Carrie Ann, she’s too conceded.

  9. I stopped watching because of Tyra. I have no idea who won. Getting rid of Tom and Erin was a bad decision. They were easy to watch and listen to. Tyra is almost frantic with her mantra of “Watch me! “. It is not about the host!

  10. This is ballroom dancing . Dancers are male and female. I quit watching because same sex partners. That is not ballroom dancing but being political correct.

  11. No “A list” celebrity is going to host this silly show, just like no “A list” celebrities sign on as dancers/contestants.
    As Neil Sedaka sang: “Shoulda never let [Tom] go…..”

  12. Glad to see Tyra go with her annoying big mouth and hideous wardrobe. I felt so sorry for the poor people having to sew those outlandish outfits within a very short time.

  13. Hooray! Stopped watching when the focus was put on Tyra Banks herself. Tom Bergeron was and is the best host of DWTS as was Aex Trebek on Jeopardy. ‘Til death do they part.

  14. I would LOVE to be the host of this show. Nobody know me, I could be whatever they wanted….I was a 60s Stewardess so I do know how to talk to people and know. when to keep quiet. They can dress and coif me and I’d have a blast.
