According to some Dancing With the Stars supporters, a former professional dancer has been dismissed and has no possibility of returning for the next season.
Keo Motsepe was the first professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars in season 19 when he was joined by Lolo Jones. Then, he was joined with Charlotte McKinney, Chaka Khan, and then Jodie Sweetin before taking season 23 off.
Motsepe joined Charo in season 24, and he continued on the program in season 25 with Barbara Corcoran, season 26 with Jennie Finch Daigle, season 27 with Evanna Lynch, and season 29 with Anne Heche. He did not appear on season 30 of the show.
Several fans are now saying that they dont believe hell would ever return to the competition.
Some fans believe something happened behind-the-scenes.
Some fans believe that Motsepe was kicked off the show behind the scenes.
Is Keo out of DWTS for good, or can he resurrected soon? One person wrote on Reddit.
Many said they believed Motsepe was done with the program for the good.
Conrad Green was never part of the team that hired, demoted, re-promoted, re-re-promoted, and let him go because he was pretty isolated from the other DWTS pros when he was let go. Maybe they can vouch for him with Conrad if he's still on good terms with the rest of the production staff.
Motsepe was thought to be for personal reasons, according to some.
Keo Motsepe (@keo_motsepe) has shared a post on his blog.
Despite some claims, he was sacked for personal reasons.
Keo being cut while actively and openly advocating for diversity makes me feel like he was dismissed for personal reasons, according to one reply. In the Mexico video Gleb posted, he was never appreciated on this program anyways, and he should be reintroduced internationally if they do bring him back this year.
Gleb Savchenko and Keo Motsepe were said to be partying with significantly younger ladies in a video released in May 2021. Savchenko was never on Dancing With the Stars again until the film's release.
Yeah, he has been gone. Another reply says that there are things we don't know about him and likely reasons why he was terminated.
One person wrote, Seems like he's done. He's been performing in programs with Anna [Trebunskaya], like Motown with a Twist and Dance to the Movies, and the actors that do those shows are the ones that arent coming back.
Many others have expressed hope that Motsepe will return to the program.
I hope not, according to the writers. Id love to see him return. I know he wasnt everyones favorite, but I enjoyed him. Whatever happened with him and the other pros should not affect the decision by not bringing him back.
The cast of Dancing With the Stars is set to be released in early September, so fans will not have to wait long to find out if Motsepe will be returning to the ballroom.
Season 31 of Dancing With the Stars will premiere on Disney+ on Monday, September 19, 2022. Derek Hough, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba will all return, along with Tyra Banks and new co-host Alfonso Ribeiro.
