Despite the backlash that she received over multiple mistakes last season, the series will once again be hosted by supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks.
Banks, who replaced longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, added that she is fine to take the blame when mistakes happen during the show.
“The world is angry at the talent. But there’s a whole control room and things happening and craziness going on, and I’m fed certain things, say certain things that I’m told. But it is what it is,” the supermodel explained. “We are a team. And sometimes you have to take darts for the team, and I took them. And will continue to take them. … I was blamed for it, and it wasn’t me. And I think that’s very important to say.”
Dancing With the Stars returns to the ballroom for its milestone 30th season on Monday, September 20 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT).
