The hit TV show Dancing with the Stars pairs professional dancers with celebrities in an all out dance competition in which the viewers decide the winner. As the ratings of many reality competition shows drop, Dancing with the Stars continued to dominate Monday nights. According to TVOverMind, DWTS averaged over 20 million live viewers over its 2-hour premiere. I have not always been a fan of the show but have watched it time to time and decided to see what the line up was like this season. After seeing the lineup I was excited about some names and then surprised about others. Since when does teen pregnancy/and being a politician’s daughter make you a star? The show which prides itself on having popular “celebrities” learn how to dance from professionals definitely did not impress me. The reality television stars that were chosen to compete weren’t even as well known as others on their show, and maybe it is because I am female but I have never heard of either athletes picked. Of all of the performers there I believe there was only one that is truly a celebrity and deserved to be there…. Jennifer Grey. Even though viewers expected this Dirty Dancing beauty to excel, I think she did better than anyone could have imagined.
