Axed: Dancing with the Stars, Bachelor in Paradise
With no dancing roster, what next for Grant Denyer?
There were lots of returning Reality shows in 10’s 2021 Upfronts yesterday, but absent from the list were two biggies: Dancing with the Stars and Bachelor in Paradise.
It’s a shame for DWTS given Warners did such a top job. But being hammered by MAFS, costing a pretty penny and facing COVID restrictions, the dance has ended.
“We have decided to hang up our dancing shoes, lycra pants and sequined jackets for the time being,” a network spokesperson told Daily Mail.
”We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those involved in the show, in particular Amanda Keller and Grant Denyer, who were fabulous hosts, as well as all the judges, dancers, the stars and of course the crew.”
This also adds some context to why Tristan McManus joined Studio 10.
With no sign of Celebrity Name Game and Family Feud, it isn’t clear what show will feature Grant Denyer, but a network contract might suggest he reappears on I’m a Celebrity or a similar show.
10 has not ruled out a return to Bachelor in Paradise, but for now the show is out, a victim of low ratings and travel restrictions.
