Some in the media have speculated that this season of Dancing with the
Stars might be cursed. The speculation mainly arises out of some of
the misfortune that has befallen some cast members and some celebrity
guests. For example, Jane Seymour missed one of the results show when
her mother passed away, and Gloria Estefan missed a scheduled
performance when her mother had to undergo emergency surgery.
Another example offered up as proof of the curse is Marie Osmond fainting after one of her performances. Jane Seymour missing the most recent results show because of suspected food poisoning will also likely become another component of the curse theory.
Whether the death, surgery, fainting, and illness that have hit this season of Dancing with the Stars are part of a curse or not, there is another way that this season certainly seems cursed. For the second time, there has been a shocking and unexpected elimination. Earlier in the season, Albert Reed was eliminated, even though he seemed to be off to a promising start. Many Dancing with the Stars viewers were outraged that Albert went before Wayne Newton, who they perceived to have not done as well in the competition.
The most recent shocking elimination occurred when Sabrina Bryan was eliminated. Earlier in the season, Sabrina Bryan became the first contestant on Dancing with the Stars 5 to receive a perfect score. Fans are once again outraged and questioning how Sabrina could have been eliminated before Jane Seymour and Marie Osmond, who received lower scores from the judges. Could the curse on Dancing with the Stars be that bad eliminations are taking place? Post your opinion in the comments section below.
