From a diversity perspective this seems a well-rounded cast, although I’ve never heard of most of them. Vernon Davis, Nelly, Skai Jackson and Charles Oakley are African-American. Jennie Mai is Asian-American and Justina Machado Puerto Rican. Jesse Metcalfe, AJ McLean and possibly Nev Schulman sport mixed race.

The contestants for the UK’s Strictly Come Dancing are being announced at the moment.
Former NFL player Jason Bell is doing it, he presents an NFL highlights show on the BBC but is best known for dating Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle, who previously dated Jesse Metcalfe.
Also taking part is double Olympic champion boxer Nicola Adams who is partnered with a female dancer. The media keeps referring to it as same sex dancing, not same gender dancing. Hopefully she’ll be paired with a white dancer so the whack jobs can complain about INTERRACIAL LESBIAN TANGO.

This cast is as C-list as ever, but you can see the Tyra influence in how they are culling. This show is trying to move away from its current base (deplorable, midwestern, watches live) and trying to get Black Twitter and city dwellers.
The problem? The executives overestimated Tyra's value. I'm not sure anyone actually likes her. ANTM was never highly rated, and became a bit of a joke for its last dozen or so "cycles." If ratings spike, this will look genius, and Tyra will get credit, but it'll likely be because they had a plan in play to shift the demographic. If the more likely happens (and this show bleeds deplorable viewers who go unreplaced), Tyra will take the blame pretty hard, and they will need to beg Tom Bergeron to come back, as he is big key to that show's endurance, and they underestimated that.
if this was ten years ago, I'd tell you Anne Heche would be first voted out, and it would come down to Johnny Weir and Vernon Davis for the title. I bet the producers are hoping for something like this.
But post-Bobby Bones, and in the Trump world, the Bachelorette and Tiger King people are probably going to go far, dancing skills or not.

Tom never sucked away focus from the couples and he acted as a barrier between them and the judges.

I have a feeling the producers didn't like Johnny's fishnet sheer trousers. Maybe he surprised them with the outfit? The camera kept avoiding them as much as possible.
Agree though - they lowballed him - and buried him in the middle of the lineup. They usually put the best at the end or next to last. So they thought the attraction was Carole Baskin, our murderess?
Ok then. I was expecting Tyra to be a car wreck. She was fine zzzzzzz. Stumbled on her words a little bit but she'll calm down. Still miss Tom.
If Val's gotten fat, Cheryl's obese! (waist down) I was shocked. Not as bad as Lacey Schwimmer but not camera ready. And Carrie Ann's Halloween wig screamed desperation - at least she acknowledged it was a wig and was uncomfortable.
Why did they bother with Len? yet it's fine to dump Tom without a peep?

I only watched the first couple of seasons of “ANTM”, so Tyra Banks hasn’t been on my radar for many years, but has she always hyper-enunciated like she did on the “DWTS” premiere? Yikes!
I agree with a lot of the assessments above (especially Cheryl’s weight gain and Carrie Ann’s wig); I thought Nev was very good, Anne Heche better than I’d expected (I’ve always thought she was an excellent actress), and Nelly worse than I’d expected. I couldn’t tell Chrishell and the Bachelorette apart. The young Disney girl was very good. I‘d liked Monica on “Cheer”, but she didn’t exhibit much warmth. Carole Baskin was horrible, and there was a cringeworthy moment when Tyra asked her something and all she did was smile (couldn’t figure out if it was nerves, fear, exhaustion, or all of the above!)

|by Anonymous||reply 143||09/15/2020|
First, Johnny Weir was spectacularly unsuccessful in competitive figure skating. Second he was a men's single skater, not an ice dancer. It's true that all figure skaters take some dance training. But Johnny Weir was known more for his music and flamboyant costumes than he was for staying on his feet. He never won any major skating championships. One bronze medal in the World's competition is the best he ever achieved.
Kristi Yamaguchi won Dancing with The Stars back when Tom Bergeron was only middle age. The divine Meryl Davis, who won the show with Maks, IS an Olympic champion & a silver medal winner. And everything else you can win. Ice dancers not only spend their life training in dance class and ballet - they only perform with a partner and must do so in all the classical ballroom positions. So, Meryl was a ringer for sure. Maks insisted on a win. Still, their partnership was gorgeous to behold. Maks the stallion and Meryl, the homely goddess, transformed. The best chemistry, ever.

Or another Tango - all in hold. A ringer is one thing - perfection is another. Meryl Davis was perfection and Maks looks like he stepped out of a Disney animation. The dark prince. It amazes me that Maks married that graceless cow with her bow legs and lack of charm. Peta who changes one feature on her face a year. Can't buy a personality.

Johnny will be eliminated because the DWTS demographic is disgusted with effeminate queens.
|by Anonymous||reply 148||09/15/2020|
No, Johnny might do great. He's got a lot of charm. DWTS audience has not really shown itself to be homophobic. But some effeminate queens at home ^ are always feeling persecuted in their pretty mesh pants. Johnny was given fair marks. He's a pursed lips guy who holds his ass high. Adam Rippon learned how to dance and had a great partner in Jenna. And he won. Against Amurica's faves - gymnasts and football players!! Don't be so dramatic R148. Weir is what middle America prefers actually. They like their gays to be queeny court jesters. A real gay man with a man's body and sexual energy is what freaks them the fuck out. Johnny Queer will go far on DWTS.

Tyra had talent. Just not transferable talents. She was a hell of a runway model, but age and weight gain along with the drag queen clothes and hair really don't flatter her now. Also the nose job she got a long time ago, really took away from her cute exotic look. Her nose is too small. She lost all that jush by the time she was thirty. Still there were the Victoria Secret years and the first black woman on Sports Illustrated cover. Remember when Tyra had regular segments on Oprah, wanting to mentor young girls? Tyra always had big plans and she's made a lot of them come true. I'll give her that. Top Model, her own talk show, those Disney Barbie movies, the girls camp. She's all business. Insanely ambitious. But I hate the way she presents herself and she's all wrong for DWTS.

I have heard of six of these people before. That might make it the closest to “star”-level season in a decade.
It’s not enough to get me to watch. I didn’t watch Tiger King. I’ve never really understood the phenomenon of being thrilled by murderers. Having learned about this woman, I am a little genuinely surprised that ABC would hire a suspected killer. But they do seem to be eager to hire any soulless trashbag of a person who will snag headlines, such as Sean Spicer, so my question is who watches this terrible show and why.

R172, you did some nice editing on that quote of his...
Here's a little context.
“Derek [Hough] was right in that we have to turn out the heels and stay calm…[focus] on the technical parts of the dance,” Savchenko explained, before remarking tongue-in-cheek, “We have great energy, chemistry, and when you’re the hottest couple on the show…”
“You can’t say that!” chuckled the daytime soap alum. (Stause).
“She looks amazing,” Savchenko dryly corrected himself. “[italic] I [/italic] look ‘OK.’”

Don't hold this against Val. The Cheer chick was already not great. And I bet she is devastated. But the timing couldn't be worse for her. And Val is already fat!
Did you know that Val and Jenna are not allowed to live together during this season of DWTS, even though they are married? If one of them gets infected, it could affect two teams. Room service. So Jenna no longer looks like a skeleton and Val no longer looks like Val.
Other pro dancers who are married to civilians are allowed to go home at night to their family.
The Cheer lady thought she had this show in her skirt. But Dev and Jenna have a much better chance. That dude has talent and he and Jenna have great dancing chemistry. Val needs sex though, to burn off some carbs.

She asks the celebs too many questions. Should be limited to one. They're pre-planned and weird questions - like asking Johnny Weir what "Johnny Gaga" meant to him (he had mentioned it as an obvious joke in the taped segment). What kind of stupid question is that? He misunderstood and started talking about what Lady Gaga means to him - she interrupted him and said, "But JOHNNY Gaga?" -- then he said, "Well, the same thing."
Other examples. She's depending too much on a script and not staying in the moment, like Tom Bergeron was so good at. Makes the show tackier (like it needed being tackier lol)
Also, Sharna's pushing a stupid fauxmance with that dolt Jesse Metcalfe and so the judges are raving about him and scoring him high - but his dancing is appalling. Worse than AJ or Nev or Johnny. Pisses me off, but this show has always managed to do that.

I agree with every word R210. Tyra also ruined the moment with AJ Mclean getting emotional about his wife. He said what he felt about her, got choked up and then Tyra asks "tell us what does she really mean to you."
Cringe. Miss Banks spent too many years exploiting underprivileged young women on Top Model with this kind of emotional probing. Stop reading your feelings off the teleprompter and learn to read the room.
Sharna is shameful. Jesse Metcalfe dances like a cow. She's got him smiling like he's cutting her grass. We all know you prefer the ladies Sharna.
It's nice to see Val and Cheryl lose a few lbs a week though.

Y’all are taking it too seriously. I had a lot of laughs last night. Tyra is funny. This is supposed to be entertainment, and I was entertained. But I like how she clearly researches the contestants and helps us to get to know them. That’s a big part of the show.
I see people blaming her for the timing and rushing judges, but that happened in past seasons too. It’s the format of the show. They’re jamming too much into 2 hours after they got rid the second elimination episode.
