      Sasha is my favorite dwts male pro. Why isn’t he partnered to dance this season?

    2. I wish Keo could be partnered with someone athletic for a change.

    3. Misty says:

      I sure am going to miss Julianne as a judge this season. she is an excellent judge.I do not care what anybody says..

    4. KIMA CURTIS says:

      I agree that it’s probably not real fair to have young athletes competing with Senior citizens. Maybe they could either do separate shows, one for the younger folks and a senior version or maybe alternate seasons and then one season have athletes and the next season do maybe 45-50 & up.

    5. Dorothy blackadar says:

      Love the show but too many athletes.You cannot expect a sixty year old to compete with the wonderful athletes.I would love DWTS have a contest and take a couple of ordinary people and give them that star treatment.Just a thought!!

    6. Sandy Stephens says:

      Too many sports people all the time. I dont watch sports so I’m not able to watch a complete season of DWTS. As soon as any actors/actresses are voted off and just sports people are left….I stop watching it 😯

    7. Angela Elliott says:

      What about Carla Hall???

    8. Tigger says:

      Dancing with what stars? More like Ambling with the Anonymous. Total waste of time.

    9. Michele Em says:

      Who ARE these people? More like Dancing With The Barely Known

    10. Nancie Dobbs says:

      Season winners will be Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas. Kind of unfair since she can really dance and is amazing…check out her video The Arena she made with Derek Hough. FANTASTICAL

    11. bnorth2014 says:

      Where are the stars again?

    12. Ellen Brewer says:

      Go #81…….I’ve got my popcorn ready.

    13. Jane says:

      Hmmm…I see the usual athletes, Hollywood has-beens and disabled contestant – where is the gay person and Disney princess??

    14. kem says:

      When you take a look at the cast and you realized you couldn’t care less who wins. You don’t watch.

    15. Marylinda Crawford says:

      Just glad it’s back on, doesn’t matter who’s with who, can’t wait

    16. Cyndee Kane says:

      So glad Derek won’t be dancing again. It’s such a pleasure to watch the show without him sticking his face into the camera every chance he gets

    17. Did you forget to list the “stars”? because I couldn’t find any.

      • Paul says:

        Lindsey Stirling has 9.7 million subscribers on YouTube and nearly 2 billion views of her videos. She has 3 albums that have sold nearly 1 million copies. She is a best selling author. She’s one 2 Billboard Awards.

      • Little stark says:

        So is an actor from one of the most popular shows on tv not a star to you?

      • Penny Barrington says:

        So only A list people are stars? And, no, you weren’t exhibiting sarcasm, you were being a pathetic hater troll. Own it, you lying f–k.

        • Movieguy says:

          None of these people have headlined a movie or long running TV show, other than Munoz, and that was about 20 years ago. He and Owens are has-beens, the rest are never was’s. They don’t even have a Bristol Palin type controversial “star.” Keep on keeping on if it makes money, though.

        • No only stars are stars and there just isn’t any listed. And my post was first class sarcasm. Funny you calling me a hater when it’s you spewing hateful vitriol in your response. Looks to me like you’re the one who needs to own it. By the way, my wife and I love Dancing With The Stars. We are just honest enough to realize that the word “stars” is used very loosely when it comes to this show.

      • Marjorie Grant says:

        Filmreview, the stars are listed along with pros.
