WOW! If written complaints are anything to go by, Tina Arena was robbed!
Dancing With The Stars win goes to Cosentino, beating Tina Arena and Rhiannon Fish
After four months of training and 11 nights of competition, grand illusionist Consentino has won season 13 of Dancing With The Stars, beating out the hotly tipped favourite, singer Tina Arena and actress Rhiannon Fish.
The former Australia’s Got Talent finalist was left speechless after hosts Daniel Macpherson and Edwina Bartholomew announced he and his partner, Jessica Raffa, were the winners.
The biggest shock of the night definitely came when Arena was eliminated. The chart-topping singer had been leading the competition on 74 points but exited due to the lowest viewer votes.
Judge Todd McKenney let out an audible ‘no’ when host Daniel MacPherson announced Arena’s elimination. Judge Helen Richie had just praised Arena as “the complete package”.
Typical complaints directed at Channel 7:
- Tina was the best dancer on the show
- Unfair voting system
- Rigged voting system
- Public voting should not be allowed*
- Tina should have been a Grand Finalist
- Favouritism (towards Channel 7 stars)
- Show ran overtime and many who recorded missed the end
- Rhiannon and Cosentino not in the same ballpark
- Lack of credibility
- Looks on judges faces was a give-away
- Tina deserved to win
Over 90% of complainers said they would NEVER watch another Channel Seven show.
Absolutely disgraceful Chanel 7!!!!!!!!!
It’s all about the f—– $$$$$$$$
Typical feedback with names removed..
Hi very upset about Tina getting voted of dancing with the stars. My issue is the judges go on every week about being a dancing competition but the best dancer get voted of. I rang chanel 7 after Tina was voted of to complain the person I spoke to said that the judges don’t have that much sway. Why do we need judges if there view ia not worth a bar of soap. Many of my friends will be complaining and we will not be watching dancing with the stars any more..
Just voicing my disgust at tonight’s final judging outcome. Once again a Channel 7 personality won the title. Surprise, surprise! That makes it, what, 9 Channel 7 winning artists out of 13 series! Cosentino and Rhiannon were both great contenders, but I cannot understand for a second how Tina Arena was not in the final two. Her skills were just outstanding. Her dismissal clearly gobsmacked the judges! Don’t think I can watch another season, cannot cope with the reality that its not who dances the best, but who works for the 7 Network! No more for me, and i don’t think I’d be in the minority!
Absolutely disgraceful Chanel 7!!!!!!!!! It’s all about the f—– $$$$$$$$ The whole of Australia new that Tina Arena should have won Dancing with the Stars, yet you base your show on stupid viewer $$$$$$ votes. How difficult would it be to divise a system whereby the judges scores are calculated to judge the dancers and viewer votes tallied for something….else? people’s vote trophy. My friends and I won’t be watching the show again. Absolutely RIGGED. Shame on you!!!!
I would like to know how Channel 7 and Dancing With The Stars bank accounts are? I have been watching this years Dacing With The Stars. The couple who won it this year, must have Paid Channel 7. The runner up and Tina Arena “DESERVED” the to win it more than this years winner! This years runner up, and Tina Arena, put there hearts and souls into it! the whole serious! In other words the show, “Dancing With The Stars”, is RIGID!
I am Very Disappointed! Also people like me get Frustrated when a show runs Well past its Finishing time, and then a channel has to cancel the next show! Why doesn’t a channel send forms out to the general public, asking the general public what show/s they like? You would get a Better Result than a group of people informing you on behalf of the rest of the world!
I am thoroughly disappointed with the results on the show. Clearly the best dancer Tina was shafted after the “viewer votes” had been counted. This is an unfair system and should be revised. The general public are never given the actual counting results and the winner should be judged on skills displayed and not popularity. Why do you have professional judges on the programme if the deciding factor comes down to popularity? I am a dedicated Channel 7 viewer but will voice my dissatisfaction further by “turning off” any future programmes which involves a “viewer vote” system. I am quite sure I am no alone with being thoroughly upset with the results last night!
