10. Charlotte McKinney

Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars was arguably not the best cast in terms of popular stars, so that meant ABC took different angles to get audiences excited for the season. A lot of the focus prior to the March 2015 season was on model and actress Charlotte McKinney because of her extremely good looks. If some fans did tune in to see how the blonde bombshell would perform on the dancefloor, they were greatly disappointed. She tied for last place in the first week, and although she showed improvement in week two, she once again fell to the bottom of the leaderboard and was only the second person eliminated along with her pro partner Keo Motsepe.

9. Michael Sam

It didn’t take long for producers, judges and fans to realize that athletes did particularly well on the series, and much to everyone’s surprise, many NFL players were exceptionally light on their feet. One of the biggest draws for season 20, aside from Charlotte McKinney, was former NFL player Michael Sam. In 2014, Sam became the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL, gaining him celebrity status well outside of the sport. Partnered with Peta Murgatroyd combined with the success of previous football players and his popularity, it seemed like Sam would go far, but despite all of this, he was eliminated third right behind Charlotte McKinney.
