Tyra Banks' Dancing With the Stars gaffe

Tyra Banks' Dancing With the Stars gaffe”

"Dancing with the Stars" host Tyra Banks made a mistake during Monday night's broadcast when she incorrectly announced a duo was safe when they were, in fact, in the bottom two.

The 46-year-old model - who hosts the USA celebrity dance competition - was mortified after incorrectly sending Monica Almada away as "safe" during the voting, only to realize she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy were actually at risk of being eliminated.

She then told American footballer Vernon Davis and pro Peta Murgatroyd that they were in the bottom two.

But it quickly became clear that something was off when contestants Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko were left onstage as well.

Ultimately, the former "America's Next Top Model" host apologized for the confusion and doubled down with her apology on social media after the show. In the end, it was up to the judges to decide which of the bottom two couples (Monica/Val and Anne/Keo) would be sent home.

It was utter chaos and confusion on the live show.

Instead of taking responsibility for the gaffe, Banks immediately placed blame for the elimination mix-up on the crew. It's tough to know where to stand on this matter since on one hand, Carole is a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to advocating for the proper treatment of big cats that can't care for themselves, which is extremely saddening but is also the fault of human beings that have continued to find these exotic creatures offer them a sort of status and mystique that is more than a little ridiculous.

"There has been an error in the control room". This kind of mishaps have happened on live TV before, and thus some people were sympathetic to her situation as well. And the producer in me knows that even though somebody might be like, 'Oh, my gosh, you're messing up!' it's live, and it's real.

Banks' blaming the control room in the moment lead many viewers to believe she had been fed the wrong information through an earpiece in real-time during the "Dancing With The Stars" elimination.

In fact, Banks has had to defend her hosting style a couple of times since taking over on the ABC show, due to a number of missed jokes, issues like flubbed lines and moments where she was accused of pulling focus. This is live TV, right? So challenging to deal with moments like these. "But we power through".

It sounds like someone needs to get her story straight! "After the Monday night blunder, viewers were quick to slam the new host and call for Bergeron's and Andrews' return."#DWTS Never had an error with Tom", one fan wrote on Twitter. "They had chemistry! Tyra just pulled a Steve Harvey", one Twitter user said. "Tom and Aaron would have handled this so much better". "It's the cast, it's the judges, it's this next-level producing that's created this handsome thing that more people than ever are watching", Tyra went on to say.

"Maybe if Tyra didn't talk so much she wouldn't have to RUSH the elimination #DWTS", a fourth fan tweeted.

"What's also weird is I just lost an earring", she said at the time. Tyra Banks sucks, no personality, all about her wardrobe! Prior to that, he had decades of hosting experience on shows like "America's Funniest Home Videos".
