DWTS' Brian Austin Green's fans up in arms following controversial judging decisions

HELLO! 13 October, 2021 - 11:32am

However, the judges haven't been as kind to them with their scores, having consistently placed them in the lower half of the pack.

The two even ended the show's latest episode, night one of Disney Week, with the lowest scoring routine of the night, ending with a 25 out of a possible 40.

Their scoring average is currently the second lowest of the season so far, and at the very bottom when taking into account the pairs still competing.

A consistent critique the judges have had for them is the fact that there isn't as much focus on the content and choreography in their routines.

Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli have frequently called the two out on focussing more on the romance and passion of performing together as a couple rather than emoting enough for the broader audience.

In the newest episode, Bruno even advised Brian to rely on his skills as an actor to push past it and have their performances be even larger.

Their critiques haven't gone down as well with fans, however, who have taken to social media to rally behind the Beverly Hills, 90210 actor and his partner.

The show posted a series of pictures from the pair's latest performance to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' Some Day My Prince Will Come.

Fans immediately responded to the post with comments like: "Season after season the judges are WAY TOO HARSH on Sharna and her partners. It's pretty ridiculous," and: "They are not being judged fairly in my opinion."

A third wrote: "Seems like Sharna was about to cry during scores. it was adorable and sweet too bad Len can't take a small kiss."

However, some did agree with the judges' misgivings, as a fan commented: "Sharna is still dancing around him and he's not moving enough," and another wrote: "That was a boring dance, agree w Len."

'DWTS' Judges Criticize Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess' PDA

Entertainment Tonight 12 October, 2021 - 10:59am

After their Snow White-themed waltz to "Someday My Prince Will Come," Len Goodman was particularly critical of the couple, saying, "Forget 'Someday My Prince Will Come,' I never thought the waltz was going to come! There was so much kissing and cuddling and messing about, then you did a little bit of waltz."

After the audience boo'd the judge, he replied, "Well, it's the truth, you know that."

Bruno Tonioli mirrored the sentiment, saying, "Listen, I get all the sweetness and niceness, but sometimes too much sweetness gives you a toothache. You need more traction, more action, more involvement. Give it light and shade." 

He added, "I know you love each other, I love it. And I love you too, but more sweeping drive, more power."

Judge Derek Hough disagreed with his fellow judges' assessments, calling the dance "beautiful."

"The opening image was as pretty as a picture," Hough praised.

Carrie Ann Inaba added that she felt there was a lift in the waltz, commenting more on the technique than some of the couple's more affectionate moments. "The love is beautiful," she said. "Love the love!" 

The couple seemed surprised by the judges' comments, with Green saying, "It's Snow White! I mean, I don't know how you don't love each other?"

Ultimately, the pair walked away with a score of 25 out of 40, the lowest score of the night. No one was eliminated on Monday's "Heroes" show, and the couple will have a chance at redemption or elimination in Tuesday's "Villains" installment.  

This isn't the first time the couple has had to defend their romance on the show. 

Earlier this month, Burgess took to Instagram writing, "For those that say we kiss too much, here’s a full 🍑 grab instead 😂," as she grabbed her man's butt in the photo. "For real though, we kissed once in the first show that’s it. This isn’t a showmance, this is real life love and it’s a part of our journey. Every step. Every struggle. Every success. And anyone that thinks it’s an advantage I can assure you, it’s not. ITS SUPER HARD!"

Green also spoke with ET about showing a real-life romance in the ballroom. 

"I think this is a really cool opportunity to have a real relationship and have that chemistry, and you're not trying to create it for the show, it's there," he said, contrasting their pre-existing relationship of nearly a year to DWTS' long history of so-called showmances. "It's a different thing to show people than what they've seen."
