Chynna Phillips: ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is a ‘popularity contest’

For a while, Chynna Phillips and her partner, Tony Dovolani, were among the top in the Dancing with the Stars leaderboards. After a fairly poor performance on the dancing competition earlier this week, however, the duo were booted off.

Now, Phillips is saying that Dancing with the Stars isn’t so much of a dancing competition as it is a popularity contest. She told the Huffington Post:

“It really does come down to the votes. And that’s kind of sad because it’s supposed to be a dance competition, but it’s actually a popularity contest, which makes me kind of sad.”

She continued, saying: “”You know, you have to have a little bit of faith that there are people out there who are truly voting for their favorite dance, not their favorite person, because it is a dance competition and people are working really hard. It would be very sad if that was undermined, and it looks to me like that keeps getting undermined.”

Phillips’ dance partner, Dovolani, agreed, saying “I’ve been on the show for 12 seasons, and Chynna has been a breath of fresh air for me. As much pull we have as teachers, in the end, it’s all about the celebrity.”
