DWTS Gleb Savchenko ‘Glad’ Scheana Shay Didn’t Get Chosen

Shortly after ‘Scandoval’ broke, it started to circulate that Ariana Madix was going to be on the last season of DWTS. She was eventually the first person announced in the cast and made it to the finals, coming in third. This opened so many doors for the bartender and author. She is wrapping up her run as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. The sales were so high, her run was extended and she just landed the gig as host of Love Island. What Ariana fans did not know was that her best friend and Vanderpump Rules co-star, Scheana Shay wanted that spot on DWTS.

She was seen crying in Season 11 of the hit Bravo reality series. This was solely because Ariana was picked yet Scheana had been taking dance lessons to prepare just in case. She claimed she was happy for Ariana but upset for herself. Now, pro dancer, Gleb Savchenko, who danced with Mira Sorvino in Ariana’s season, is opening up about why Scheana was not the right fit. According to The Sun, he had this to say about Scheana not being part of the competition.

“I’m glad Scheana didn’t go [on the show]. I don’t think she would’ve had the same chance as Ariana,” Savchenko shared. He has a history with Scheana Shay and Lisa Vanderpump. He danced with LVP when she was a contestant on the show. Additionally, Gleb helped choreograph Scheana’s first dance with her now ex-husband, Mike Shay.

“I choreographed their first dance, and I remember it wasn’t easy. I’m not saying bad things about her. I think Scheana is amazing. I really like her. She’s an awesome girl and everything. But as my memory calls, I didn’t think she had a lot of dance experience. That’s what I’m trying to say.”

Things Change

Gleb Savchenko says Scheana Shay could have improved by now but has suggestions for anyone who wants to be on the show.

“If you ever want to be on Dancing With the Stars and you feel like you have enough celebrity power to be on a show, whoever that is – it’s not just Scheana or anybody else – you should start taking classes. People think, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll just chill for a couple of hours in the dance studio. I’m going to hang out with this handsome dude who has got a Russian accent, and he’ll be smiling.'”

Fortunately, Scheana did take lessons to prepare but why did she think she had a chance? She claimed that she had been a guest and was in the audience a few times. Then, she was approached and asked why she had not been on the show yet so it seemed like her time was coming. Unfortunately for her, ‘Scandoval’ happened and Ariana Madix was a more desirable player. There are always more seasons as Gleb has no idea who will be cast for Season 33.
