Bergeron leaves fans speechless
After an unbelievable 15 years stint of hosting Dancing With The Stars (DWTS), Tom Bergeron confirms he will not be returning as the host in the upcoming 29th Season. ABC television broke the news to the celebrity earlier in mid-July. After hearing the news, Tom tweeted “It’s been an incredible 15-year run and the most unexpected gift of my career”.
ABC later informed the fans that Erin Andrews, co-host of DWTS who joined the show in 2014 will also be leaving the show. The reason stated was that the show wanted a new creative direction and removing Tom and Erin would be the first step in the implementation.
Tom Bergeron, one of the quirkiest hosts who has brought smiles to millions of people is not going to be seen on our screens anymore… many of the previous contestants and judges were shocked after hearing the news. “If Tom isn’t gonna be there, you might as well cancel the show”.
Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron
The duo of Tom and Erin has brought out the real success of the show. The news of the duo leaving was just settling in when they announced that season 29 will be hosted by our newest member ‘Tyra Banks’. Tom wished well for the show and was excited to see the new direction of the show.
Bergeron was as much shocked as the viewers were after getting the news. He didn’t get any head start about him not being in season 29. As of now, only one contestant of season 29 has been named. But sadly Tom wouldn’t be there to guide any of them.
Erin Andrews who has been the co-host with Tom for 6 years was also devastated after hearing the news.
Bergeron received many messages and calls from his friends, viewers of the show, and the team of DWTS showing support to the comedian. Bob Saget who often refers to Tom as his ‘comedy pal’ commented on his post “You were and will always be great on that show. Congrats on an amazing run my friend”.
the reaction of the judges
The judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Anne Inaba, and Juliana Hogh were also clueless that Tom and Andrews are not going to host the season 29. Bruno tweeted “Dear Tom, I will miss you so much my friend we had an amazing 15 years, your charm with professionalisms have been integral to the show’s success”.
Bruno continued with another tweet “My Darling Erin, it has been such a pleasure and fun working with you; especially our little banter backstage before going live”.
Tom and Andrews have moved on past the memories and attachment they had with the show and have been looking for new opportunities. Both of these talented stars won’t take long to find a new place to entertain us. They are extremely talented and hilarious, so we await their next adventure!
