Season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars” premiered on September 19, 2022, and fans have already found out who the frontrunners will be.
As the celebs get to know their pro partners and vice versa, everyone is still trying to figure things out. However, there is one partnership that fans feel bad about – and that is Pasha Pashkov and Teresa Giudice.
“Season 31 LETSGOOOO Meet my wonderful partner @teresagiudice See you September 19 live on @disneyplus. For now, we will continue to share our journey with you here on Insta,” Pashkov wrote in an Instagram post on September 8, 2022.
Shortly after Pashkov and Giudice’s pairing was confirmed, several DWTS took to Reddit to discuss and many people said they felt sorry for Pashkov.
Here’s what you need to know:
The main reason why many “Dancing With the Stars” fans seem upset about Pashkov being paired with “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is because they hoped he would make the semifinals — and beyond. Many longtime fans don’t think that Giudice will have much stamina and that she will be easily danced by competitors like Charli D’Amelio and Wayne Brady.
“Pasha’s string of celebs are starting to have echoes of Emma’s early seasons — it does unexpectedly well with a slightly older partner in your first season and then gets sent off to obvious early exits for a couple of seasons. But there were at least two. seasons a year, so more opportunities. Really frustrated for him that he missed another decent celebrity and also only had 1 partner under 50 in 4 seasons,” said one person on a Reddit thread about the partnership.
“He’s fantastic, give him a better chance,” wrote another.
“He is such a nice guy and always has such a good attitude. He deserves a great partner and imo Theresa [sic] isn’t that partner’, was a third comment.
“This is what I am most stressed about. I wanted to see Pasha with someone like Charli, Gabby or Jessie. I think he will do great with Theresa [sic]because he did such a great job with all his partners, but Theresa [sic] just doesn’t get any further than many of these other contestants, regardless of her partner. At least that’s my prediction,” another Redditor reiterated.
Pashkov and Giudice had some fun in between rehearsals and both shared some fun videos they’ve been making over the past few weeks.
However, on one video, fans took to the comment section to criticize Giudice’s dance moves.
“Our rehearsals are VERY serious,” Pashkov captioned the post.
DWTS fans flooded the comments section, many saying Giudice had “no rhythm”.
“No rhythm at all!” noted one person.
“First voted out,” added another.
“She’ll never last,” wrote a third Instagram user.
“I love her, but…she’s out of flow,” another comment read.
