DWTS fans name their top replacement hosts.
Some Dancing With the Stars fans have put together a slew of contestants to replace Tyra Banks as the show’s host, including ex-contestant Alfonso Ribeiro, who was a fan favorite when he appeared on the show.
On a Reddit post with dozens of upvotes, one user wrote, “Name anyone who would be a better host than Tyra. I’m starting … Alfonso Ribeiro “, to which another user replied:” Oooo Alfonso would be great! ”
Ribeiro is no stranger to hosting. He is currently hosting America’s Funniest Videos for ABC, a job he actually took over from Tom Bergeron. The peculiarities of “Dancing With the Stars” are also no stranger to him – he and his partner Witney Carson won season 19.
The responses to the post were really broad, from people who wrote jokes like “The Muppets were pretty good tonight, won’t lie”, “My Chihuahua” and “A mop” to some actual answers that are pretty good Ideas were like ask former professionals to host.
“Louis Van Amstel should take [Derek Hough’s] Job [on the judges’ panel]. Derek and Karina should be hosts. She was such a ball of fire. Your first season was hilarious, “wrote one user.
Another agreed: “The host has to be someone from the show, be it a former candidate who has come a long way or is personable, or a former professional.”
One user said he was torn by Derek Hough for being “such a good judge” that they would hate to lose him on the jury.
Jeannie Mai has been mentioned a few times, as have guest host Leah Remini and former pro dancer Julianne Hough. Mario Lopez was also suggested, as was current judge Carrie Ann Inaba – and maybe they could host together!
“I think Carrie Ann would actually be a lot better hostess at this point. She doesn’t add anything at the judges’ table, but she would be good at banter and chatter and the silly emotional feedback the hosts give to attendees, ”wrote one user. “I would have Carrie Ann moderate with a former male candidate like Joey Fatone or Mario Lopez who can easily keep things on track and who has a certain personality. Or a TV personality like a John Stamos. “
Clean Bowled recently interviewed former contestant Victoria Arlen, who is an ESPN reporter and hosts “American Ninja Warrior Junior” on Peacock – she said that when asked to “Dancing With the Stars ”so there is another option right there.
Regardless of who they’d like to host, Reddit fans all agreed on one thing on this thread – Banks is ruining the show.
“I suspect Tyra was brought in to drive the show off a cliff. I can’t imagine surviving another season with her at the top. It has become horrific, ”wrote one user.
“It’s a shame the producers argued with Tom Bergeron over creative differences,” wrote another user. “At Tyra Banks, their billboards and advertisements are all about them. Her fancy clothes distract from what we want to see, the professionals and their partners. She can’t time things right; She’s always working overtime, rushing the judges and saying stupid things. Look at when Bruno fell off his chair last week; Tom would have made a joke that would make everyone laugh, but all Tyra can think of is, ‘What the hell?’ “
Another fan added, “Tyra is so cold and robotic – she doesn’t bring anything to the show that I like and I miss Tom so much watching her!” To which one user replied, “I agree, she.” can’t / has nothing to do with the candidates, I felt the same way when she was the host [‘America’s Got Talent’]. No connection, no relationship between her and anyone else. In both shows, she had to make her spectacular appearance like she was the only thing that matters. I don’t see the show much longer, mainly because of her. “
“Dancing With the Stars” season 30 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time on ABC.
