I never knew dancing could be so dangerous!Â Now Iâ€™m not a dancer, and donâ€™t know if I could be even if I wanted to, but Iâ€™m a surprised how many people are getting hurt on this season of â€śDancing With The Starsâ€ť!
The season started out with two withdrawals even before the competition began.Â Jewel had a fractured tibia in both legs, and Nancy Oâ€™Dell suffered a torn meniscus.Â At this point Iâ€™m like, â€śokay thatâ€™s unfortunate, but Iâ€™m sure thatâ€™s the extent of the injuriesâ€ť.Â Oh no, that was just the beginning!
Next up on the injured dancer block was Steve-O, Steve Wozniak, and Giles Marini.Â Oh no, thatâ€™s not all folks!Â Jewelâ€™s hubby Ty Murray didnâ€™t have to wrestle steer to get hurt, he just had to danceâ€¦or should I say get popped in the eye with a flying mic pack!
Now thereâ€™s Melissa Rycroft who stepped into the season plagued with injuries with a bruise of her own after she was tossed aside on the Bachelor for Molly.Â Thatâ€™s right, she actually received Jasonâ€™s final rose, but then he changed his mind and dumped her on national television. Ouch!Â (In his defense, heâ€™s not the 1st guy to change his mind on a girl, he just happened to do it on TV.)Â At any rate, now we can officially add Melissa to our extensive list of injured dancing celebs after she hurt her ribs. Iâ€™m sure I missed a few injuries, but seriously, who can keep up?!?
Is DWTS asking too much of these amateur dancers?Â Thatâ€™s right I said AMATEUR!Â Though they are semi-celebs, theyâ€™re not semi-professional dancers.Â Maybe â€śDancing With The Starsâ€ť is pushing a little too hard.Â I guess either way this season really will boil down to the last man or woman standing wins!
