Tyra Banks may not be the most beloved Dancing With The Stars cast member, but she’s here and back for another season. The former Victoria’s Secret Angel appeared in the Season 31 premiere alongside her new co-host, Alfonso Ribeiro.
The season premiere flowed pretty seamlessly all night, but many fans still had something to say about Tyra’s hosting abilities. Keep reading to see what the internet has to say.
DWTS fans are dragging Tyra Banks online at the moment
Since Tyra Banks joined DWTS in Season 29, she’s been pretty unpopular with fans. Many viewers weren’t willing to give her a chance at all after the show fired Tom Bergeron ahead of the Season 29 premiere. Others tried to warm up to the America’s Next Top Model star, but just couldn’t. Either way, she’s getting a lot of flack online right now from fans.
Some fans are dragging Tyra Banks online for accidentally announcing the wrong names at the top of the leaderboard. They’re worried she might completely fumble the next elimination as she did in Season 29. But others are upset about the way she talked to Charli D’Amelio after the 18-year-old performed the cha-cha-cha with Mark Ballas.
“I said for one of the most famous teenagers in the entire world, she is so sweet, so humble. There’s a sweetness,” the supermodel told Charli after her performance. The TikToker didn’t seem off-put by the comment and even offered a nervous chuckle.
“I thought you were going to be like ‘What’s up, Tyra? I’m a Tiktok star.’ No! You are so sweet and humble, it’s beautiful,” Tyra continued.
Neither Charli nor Mark seemed bothered by Tyra’s comments, but fans online didn’t seem to take it all well. Twitter lit up last night with viewers accusing Tyra Banks of slamming Charli D’Amelio after her performance.

So what do you think of the situation? Did Tyra actually mock the TikTok star or were her comments innocent? Be sure to leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments.
Charli & Mark have the last laughs in the end
At the end of the day, Charli D’Amelio probably just let Tyra’s comments roll right off of her. The 18-year-old TikTok star and her partner Mark Ballas have a lot to be proud of. They completely blew the audience away and earned the highest score of the night!
Their cha-cha-cha to Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” received a score of 8 from each judge. This puts their total score at 32 — the highest of the night.
Charli D’Amelio has a dance background, so many viewers weren’t taken by surprise here. However, fans also know that she has some pretty stiff competition. Shangela, Wayne Brady, and Jordin Sparks are expected to be really heavy competition this year.
Who are you voting for? Be sure to let us know who you think deserves to take home the Mirrorball Trophy this year. Tune into Disney+ next Monday Night at 8 PM eastern time and see how the remaining 15 couples perform on Elvis Night.
Can Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas keep their first-place spot? Will Tyra make another major onscreen blunder? Fans will just have to stay tuned and see what happens next.
