It’s not news that Dancing with the Stars has been around for a long time. After 23 seasons, and currently halfway through the 24th, it’s safe to say there have been some memorable contestants. Whether it be for good or bad, here are 8 contestants we won’t likely forget.
8. Nyle DiMarco
Nyle DiMarco and Petra Murgatroyd were the winners of season 22. Not only were the couple a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor, the contestants genuine spirit easily won over viewers. DiMarco offered so much more than just being a phenomenal dancer. As an activist for the deaf community, he also discucssed how challenging it can be in a society where many don’t take the time to learn sign language. One of the most heartwarming moments of the season was watching Carrie Ann sign a message she had practiced for DiMarco, bringing the contestant to tears in appreciation. We were able to learn so much more than just how to nail a Paso doble from DiMarco.
