Tyra Banks took the stage as the host of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” for the first time on Monday night, and fans were less excited about her performance.
In July, the network announced that the former host of “America’s Next Top Model” would be recruited for Season 29 of the hit reality show to replace abruptly removed presenters Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
Fans were stunned when Bergeron suddenly announced on Twitter that he would not return. He has hosted the show since its debut in 2005. Andrews, who was hired as co-host in 2014, followed shortly after it became clear that the network had decided to move the show in a new direction.
“DANCES WITH THE STARS”
“ABC chose not to take Tom’s option. In the good tradition of Hollywood clichés, they are “going in a different direction,” Bergeron said in a statement to Fox News at the time.
Although Banks has previously said that her predecessors leave large shoes for stuffing, she is considered a fan of the show and is excited to take on household chores. In addition to America’s Next Top Model, she previously hosted America’s Got Talent.
However, it seems that these skills have not necessarily switched to DWTS, as many who took part in the premiere of Season 29 on Monday took to Twitter to not only mourn the loss of the two previous hosts, but also to inflict Banks’ first hit at the new concert.
“Can Tyra Banks be the first to vote, thank you! #Dwts “, wrote one user.
“Tyra Banks ruined dancing with the stars … she’s trying to be fun, but she’s still falling … # bringtomback #DancingWiththeStars,” another user posted.
“In 2 minutes and I’m over #TyraBanks as a host. #DWTS “, noted a third user.
“We remind you that #DWTS fired Tom and Erin was ridiculous and unnecessary, Tyra Banks is literally the worst host that ever existed, and Carol Baskin killed her husband. Don’t even give @DancingABC the satisfaction of everyone,” wrote another man. noting the inclusion of the controversial star “Tiger King” in the list of celebrities for this season.
“#TyraBanks don’t leave your daily work, darling. DWTS hosting is not your strength,” wrote another user.
“I’m sorry, I don’t like taking people down, but Tyra Banks is so annoying. You’ve been watching since day 1, but I’m not sure if I can take her …” someone else wrote.

“Can I just say what the hell ABC was thinking, replacing Tom Bergeron with Tyra Banks at DWTS. His wit and quick twists made the show interesting. It’s so boring now that I can’t stay awake. #DWTS.” wrote a Twitter user.
