Ryan Lochte Throws Fit Backstage, Thinks ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Is Rigged
Ryan Lochte is still on Dancing With the Stars, but it doesn’t look like he will be sticking around for long. On his first week on the show, protesters came out and caused a scene. Ryan and Cheryl Burke just aren’t getting great scores so far this season so there is no way he will make it to the end of the show. Now Radar Online shared that Ryan actually thinks the show is rigged. He doesn’t take losing very well at all. As an Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte isn’t used to not being at the front of the pack.

Ryan could end up going home tonight considering he lost in last night’s face-off rounds while doing the Cha-Cha to “If It Ain’t Love.” Ryan will have to get the fan votes to stick around. A source says that Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke are pretty sure they are going to end up going home tonight, but it is not official yet. The source revealed more as well.
“Ryan was actually telling people that he thought the show was rigged and that everyone was out to sabotage him. He also said that it was unfair of them to put him and Cheryl up against James Hinchcliffe and his partner Sharna Burgess, because he said that they are both ‘really strong dancers.'”
Right now, Ryan Lochte is still on the show, but that could all change today. If the Dancing With the Stars judges catch wind of what Ryan is saying, they are not going to be happy at all. Of course, so far Ryan hasn’t said this to actual press, but sources are hearing it and sharing the news.
Ryan Lochte is not the first person to be accused of saying that Dancing With the Stars is rigged this season. Radar Online also shared that Amber Rose has been telling her friends she thinks the show is rigged and that this is part of the reason she was partnered up with Maks Chmerkovskiy on the show this season. A source shared that Amber actually feels like they want Laurie Hernandez to win the show this season. The source said Amber thinks that she won’t stand a chance to win. So far, Amber is doing great on the show, though. The source explained more.
“Amber knows that the judges have had trouble with Maks, but she is determined to not give them anything to criticize. Amber was a stripper so she has some seriously good moves. She’s definitely a good dancer. Amber is very competitive. She wants to win and win on her own merit, but she’s afraid that it isn’t enough.”
Yesterday, the Inquisitr shared that Ryan Lochte was feeling really defeated on the show and had even tried to quit once. Sources said that Ryan was pretty much giving up on his dream of winning the show. Right now, he isn’t getting high enough scores to be seen as a frontrunner this season. Only time will tell if Ryan Lochte ends up sticking around or getting sent home right away. Ryan and Cheryl have also been fighting because she doesn’t feel like Ryan is putting in as much effort as she is on the show. Cheryl took some time off and now that she is back she wants to win this season.
