8. Jennifer Grey

With an iconic films like Dirty Dancing on her resume, it would be an understatement to say that expectations were high for Jennifer Grey. The actress competed on season 11 with Derek Hough, and while she most definitely proved she had not lost any of her dance training, many expected more. Often Grey’s dramatics detracted from her actual dances and with a season filled with some of the worst dancers the show had seen, there was really no way she wasn’t going to win.

7. Nicole Scherzinger

Before taking on the dance floor with Jennifer Grey in season 11, season 10 saw Derek Hough paired with Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger. While Scherzinger without a doubt lit up the dancefloor, it didn’t come as much to a surprise thanks to her background with choreographed dances and routines. She is a talented dancer, and the season was electric, but at the same time it was a bit boring to watch two dancers dominate week after week, with only Evan Lysacek providing a bit of competition.
