Elizabeth Berkley, who was arguably a great dancer, was voted off Dancing with the Stars Monday night, but fans are wondering why is comedian Bill Engvall still on the show.
The 56-year-old, who gets low scores from judges, continues to stick it out on the talent competition.
“I’m beginning to understand that Bill Engvall is still on our show because there are many viewers and voters who still love the fact that our show takes non-dancers and makes them dancers,” says Carrie Ann Inaba in her Parade blog.
“This is the heart of the show,” she adds. “This is what the show started off being about and continues to be about. I have to say that it was nice to read that people are still voting with that thought in mind, and that it’s not just that he’s popular, as so many people have stated.”
She continues, “He is your everyday guy and he’s learning to dance. And to top it off, he does it with a wonderful, positive attitude and has fun while doing it. People like that. He has an ‘Uncle Bill’ kind of familiarity, and I think many of the people who watch our show have bonded with him because they can relate to him. And it seems like a large number of them have chosen to support him through this journey.”
