Fans are accusing DWTS of ‘rigged’, ‘fixed’ competition

Some “Dancing With the Stars” fans are rioting over the way the Season 31 finale went when TikTok sensation and reality star Charli D’Amelio and her partner Mark Ballas defeated “Bachelorette” Gabby Windey and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy for the to win.

Here’s what fans are upset about:

Some viewers were upset throughout the season that Charli D’Amelio even competed on “Dancing With the Stars,” as she has extensive dance training and also teamed up with “Dancing With the Stars” pro-turned-judge Derek Hough for the “Step Into the Films” ABC special. They recreated the iconic finale dance “Dirty Dancing” with D’Amelio in the role of Baby Houseman (Jennifer Gray) and Hough in the role of Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze).

Some angry fans feel that the show was “manipulated” all along to allow D’Amelio to win. They also feel that Windey and Chmerkovskiy have been “robbed” of victory.

“I think the win was rigged for Charli, who did win!! Not fair!!” one commenter wrote on Facebook, to which another replied: “I totally agree. Not fair, Mark returns after being absent for several seasons and is paired up with Charlie. Professional dancers are not allowed to participate.”

“I just want to say that Gabby, Wayne and Shangela have been robbed! Charli has been a dancer since day one and the judges’ favorite. They promoted the family’s show weekly. It was no surprise that she won, which she shouldn’t have. Such BS!!!” wrote a third commenter, to which another commenter replied, “I know Gabby should have won.” The original poster then commented, “Absolutely she should!!! She actually had emotion and didn’t know how to dance.

“I knew it was fixed weeks ago, it shouldn’t have happened,” said a fifth fan.

“Miss Perfect is going to win, we can already see it. Mark and Charli have been the jury’s winner from the start. A little over 13 years of dance lessons, who wouldn’t want that,” wrote another commenter.

“Rigged up by Derek for his best friend and hand-picked professional dancer Charli. I’ve never seen a dance from them because I can’t stand Mark,” one viewer wrote, to which another replied, “I agree. My sister knows someone who competed in dancing with the stars and they said they pick the winner in the first few weeks of the competition and pick everyone else one by one.

Many fans lamented Windey and Chmerkovskiy taking second place as they feel she showed more growth as someone with less dance experience going into the season.

“I wanted [Gabby] to win so badly. However, she was absolutely amazing! She is a winner in my books!” wrote one fan.

“[Gabby and Val were] the best of the bunch. Sorry but they’ve been robbed,” a second fan wrote.

A third fan added, “While Charli did a great job… Gabby deserved it more in my opinion. She showed personality and had more growth than Charli I think.”

“Gabby has really grown on me this season. In the end, I really liked her. She was stupid and an excellent dancer. If it wasn’t for Charli she would have won,” said another fan.

A fan predicted the winner’s announcement ahead of the final: “[Gabby will] become 2nd. Just wait. It’s set,” to which another fan replied, “It was set weeks ago… I could have stopped watching, but I wanted to see Louis and Cheryl B dance tonight.”

Finally, one fan said it takes all the fun out of having someone as talented as D’Amelio in the competition.

“It takes the fun out of the competition if you know who will win from week one. Having contestants who are more level makes the show more interesting and not so clear who is going to win,” the fan wrote.

For so many of Windey’s fans who think she’s been robbed, there’s also a vocal contingent of fans who hate that “Dancing With the Stars” continues to cast “Bachelor” nation people and they feel that Windey isn’t even on the show.

“I’m sooo tired of winning the Bachelorettes, I want everyone but Gabby to win this season!” wrote one fan.

Another added: “So glad Gabby didn’t win. Her voice drove me crazy,” and a third wrote, “She’s fake and thinks she’s a gift from God.”
