Is Dancing With The Stars Season 22 rigged in favor of popular UFC fighter Paige Van Zant and partner Mark Ballas winning The Mirror Ball Trophy?
It’s not the first time that I have heard people saying that Dancing With The Stars is rigged and to be honest, I really have never thought about it until this DWTS Season 22.

Beyond proud of my boy @markballas who brought the house down last night as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. and I'd like to think I helped him discover his ability to hit all those high notes when I repeatedly crushed his toes during our time together on DWTS.
After scoring a 29 out of 30 in the first round for their redemption dance -- a fast-paced salsa set to Pitbull's "Fireball" -- the duo returned in the second round for an even more amazing routine, where they were accompanied by someone near and dear to Ballas' heart.
Proving how silly stereotypes actually are, "Dancing With The Stars" pro Mark Ballas tells me that sexuality has nothing to do with who is a master on the ballroom floor.
“There is one gay cast member,” Ballas tells me, admitting that he personally has never had to deal with any of the assumptions people make about male dancers. I went to a performing arts school and my whole philosophy, if someone said something to me, I would say, ‘Well, while you are on the football field with other dudes, I will be dancing with a lot of girls.' But I think with dancing now, a lot of guys are getting into it. " Knowing about the whispers surrounding some of his fellow cast members' sexuality, Ballas believes the amount of sports stars that have been contestants on the show has helped change assumptions about the personal lives of male dancers. Obviously there’s always frustrating moments, but it’s overcoming them together at the end of the day.” Admitting he has no idea which celebrity he has been paired with for the upcoming season, Ballas does reveal one of the biggest factors that the producers consider – height. She was cool backstage, but she was too tall for me anyway,” Mark confesses.
