Dancing With the Stars has seen super competitive seasons, and others that were rather lacking in talent, but either way almost every season has had stars that were expected to do well right away. Either for physical ability, previous dance experience, or sheer confidence, many fans picked out some stars to be frontrunners who ended up being extremely disappointing in the competition! From natural athletes, to stars who were promoted as big draws for the season, many times they didn’t last nearly as long fans expected or wanted them to! So, here are some Dancing With the Stars contestants who let us down:
13. Nick Lachey
Over the years, there are some celebrities who have proven to just have a natural groove for ballroom dancing, and a lot of them have been members of boy bands or girl groups. When Nick Lachey joined season 25 many thought the former 98 Degrees singer would have an advantage thanks to his time learning choreographed moves with the boy band. The likes of Joey McIntyre (New Kids on the Block), Joey Fatone (NSYNC), Mel B (Spice Girls), Lance Bass (NSYNC), Nicole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls), Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys), Normani Kordei (Fifth Harmony), and Ally Brooke (Fifth Harmony), all used the skills they learned to either win their seasons or at least land in the top three, but the same couldn’t be said for Nick Lachey. Many expected a longrun from the singer on the show, especially after his own brother won season 2, but instead he was eliminated fifth and had a very unmemorable stint on DWTS.
