You would expect an ex-Glee star to have a huge advantage in a competition like ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ After all, Heather Morris is an actual choreographer and even performed as part of Beyonce’s music tour. But for some reason, it was the complete opposite.
Initially, most viewers thought they would barely make it through the first show; however, much to viewers’ surprise, Morris climbed up to higher scores until her Week 6 elimination.
Honey Boo Boo – Juniors Season 1
Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo) first started her career in showbiz on the show 'Toddlers & Tiaras' when she was five years old. She became so popular that she got her own show, 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,' which also got very high ratings.
But before she grew up, Honey Boo Boo danced her little heart out in the 'Dancing With the Stars' Juniors season in 2018. She came out in 8th place, but hey, that’s not bad for a 13-year-old kid.
Carole Baskin – Season 29
One of the best things about Netflix is being able to binge-watch 'Tiger King.' But thank God the fun and insanity didn’t end there because the infamous Carole Baskin decided to compete in season 29 of 'Dancing With the Stars.'
Baskin paired up with dancer Pasha Pashkov and performed three tiger-themed routines. What do we mean by tiger-themed? Well, exactly what you would expect–Baskin dressed in tiger costumes and leopard-print leotards and dancing to a Paso Doble version of ‘Eye of the Tiger.’ Not surprisingly, she ended up in 14th place.
Kate Flannery – Season 28
The lovable Kate Flannery is best known for being the quirky Meredith for nine seasons of 'The Office.' But despite her being a not-so-elegant character in the popular comedy series, she proved to be very graceful on season 28 of 'Dancing With the Stars.'
Her performance of A Spoonful of Sugar from the classic Mary Poppins will forever be remembered. She partnered up with Pasha Pashkov, and they won 7th place.
Wendy Williams – Season 12
Wendy Williams is one of America’s most beloved talk show hosts (and radio host before that). So, when it was announced that she would be joining season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' everyone was anxious to see how she performed.
Williams teamed up with professional dancer Tony Dovolani and gave it her best shot, but she was still sent home after only two weeks on the show. You’re still our favorite Wendy!
