Contestant Olivia Jade Giannulli (Olivia Jade) is under investigation because her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, served time in prison for the college admissions scandal that exploded in March of 2019.
On “DWTS” Jade introduces herself: “Maybe I’m best known for being an influential person. But the past few years have been, I guess you could say, wrapped up in a scandal.”
She is paired with pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy and the two danced salsa for Jade’s first dance.
One viewer wrote on Twitter, “Send Olivia Jade home. Stop rewarding terrible behavior.”
“For the first time in the history of ‘Dancing With the Stars’, I am dancing with another woman. And I am really proud,” Siwa said. “I came out in early 2021, and what I like to do is really easy for the kids.”
One commenter wrote, “I’m singing for an ABC account so I can vote for Jojo Siwa on Dancing With the Stars.”
