After the eliminations results last night on Dancing with the Stars, a number of avid fans and TV bloggers are in an uproar this morning, believing the voting was rigged.
The first couple up for elimination was Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood, and the public was appalled. Anderson has brought life and fun to the show, and unlike some of the other celebrity contestants on the show (cough, Kate Gosselin, cough) Anderson can actually dance. The next couple put on the chopping block was Shannen Doherty and her partner, Mark Ballas.
Cue internet bloggers shock and appall. After Kate Gosselin’s behavior, and the hordes of people out there who just simple don’t like the reality star, the buzz on the net today is that the voting was rigged by the judges in Kate’s favor.
Is it possible? There is also news that Doherty’s partner, Ballas, was injured and would be no longer able to dance, leaving Doherty paired up with his father. Perhaps if it was rigged, it was a choice of convenience, but we’ll probably never know. Supposedly, it’s up to the public to vote for their favorites and determine who goes on to the next round.
Either way, the fact that Gosselin is still in the running is just another cause to give us question about the merits of reality television game shows.
