On Monday, Dancing With the Stars debuted on Disney+ in its entirety. Despite this, there is one element of the show that fans are still dissatisfied with – its host, Tyra Banks. It’s apparent from fan tweets that they didn’t want Banks to join the rest of the cast in migrating to Disney+.
Although Banks will be the primary host of Dancing With the Stars, Alfonso Ribeiro will also play a role in hosting. According to TV Line, he released a statement about his excitement for the news, saying, “Dancing with the Stars has been such an important part of my life for so many years, and I am ecstatic to officially re-join this tight-knit family as co-host. Tyra and I have a longstanding friendship that I hope will resonate with all of the fans at home as we kick off this new season on Disney+.”
Despite the inclusion of Ribeiro, Banks’ position in the film is still a topic of discussion. It’s safe to say that they aren’t vibing with her as a host right now.
I hope that we can vote Tyra off the show and have Alphonso as the only host. #dwts #DWTS31
Fans of Banks aren’t fans of hers. They aren’t a fan of hers.

When you discover that Dancing With The Stars is migrating to Disney+ there are no breaks from Tyra talking. #DWTS pic.twitter.com/P8VqJITnAj
Ahead of Season 31, DWTS made several changes – one being that fan-favorite Banks remained on the show.

Not Feeling It
It’s that time of year again, when I get to feel secondhand embarrassment through Tyra on Dancing with the Stars.
Fans have now made it a habit to express their dissatisfaction with Banks every season.

This season of Dancing with the Stars is off to a good start, except for Tyra Banks.#DWTS
Banks has been hosting DWTS for three seasons now, but fans still don’t seem to appreciate her role on the show.
This season of Dancing with the Stars looks promising. Except the part where they kept Tyra Banks.#DWTS

Tyra looks fantastic #dwts
While there are some avid DWTS fans that are routing for Banks, it seems as though they make up a small percentage.

Can I text “fire Tyra” to 21523 #DWTS
This is Banks’ first season as a co-host alongside Ribeiro. Will fans react to him negatively as well?
#DWTS still cant stand Tyra 🙄
Even though it’s now based on Disney+, DWTS is still the show that fans love. Banks would have been better off not participating in this one, if going by fan reactions on Twitter alone.
