12 Most Popular Dancing With The Stars Pros Ranked Worst To Best

Slide 1 of 6 | View On One Page

Going into its 26th season, Dancing With the Stars has seen not only a revolving cast of stars but a revolving cast of pros. Throughout all of the seasons, the series has seen over 40 pros try to lead celebrities from all different areas of the entertainment industry around the dancefloor and to a Mirror Ball Trophy. Although there have been so many pros, only a few have stood out to fans and have become just as popular as the stars themselves! Check out 12 of the most popular DWTS pros ranked from worst to best:

12. Lindsay Arnold

After an impressive showing on So You Think You Can Dance, Lindsay Arnold became a pro dancer on Dancing With the Stars for season 16, and although she was the second youngest pro dancer ever (right behind Julianne Hough), she made her presence known. After placing 8th, Arnold was relegated to troupe dancer for seasons 17-20, but in season 21 she returned as a pro and was then partnered with National Guard member Alek Skarlatos. This time, Lindsay and Arnold were one of the fan favorites of the entire season and made it to third place. Since then the 24-year-old has really proven herself amongst the veterans with a fourth-place finish in season 22, and another third place finish in season 23. Arnold is most definitely talented and will most likely be a pro for many seasons yet to come, but until she gets a Mirror Ball win under her belt, she is ranked at number 12.

11. Artem Chigvintsev

After beginning as a dance troupe member for Dancing With the Stars’ 18th season, Artem Chigvintsev was quickly promoted to a pro for season 19. His easygoing charm quickly made him a fan favorite, but unfortunately for Artem, this has also meant that he has been partnered with some difficult stars. Despite his positive attitude, he has yet to place better than sixth which he achieved with partner Lea Thompson in his first season as a pro. He is a talented dancer, but he has ways to go when it comes to working with his partners before he is a Dancing With the Stars champion.
