Season 3

This season expanded each program from an hour to 90 minutes, and added an hour-long results show the following night (in the first season no couples were eliminated in the first week; the first couple was eliminated at the end of the second episode, the second couple at the end of the third episode, and so on). Two couples were declared safe in an earlier portion of the show, the remaining couples were then named off until only the bottom two were left (the last two couples had the fewest votes, with the exception of week seven, where the show explicitly stated that the order of all but the eliminated couple was random).

On February 24, 2006, 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke were announced the winners, marking the first win for Burke.[1]

CastEdit

CouplesEdit

Rapper Romeo was scheduled to appear in this season, but suffered an injury before the first show and was replaced by his father, Master P[2] (Romeo eventually participated in season 12 and was partnered with Chelsie Hightower). This season expanded to ten couples from six in the previous season. All the professionals dancers from season one, with the exception of Alec Mazo (who was the incumbent champion) and Charlotte Jørgensen, were a part of season two.

ControversyEdit

The fan voting for Master P and Jerry Rice received some controversy during this season. Master P received very low points from the judges during his time on the show and the fans and judges were disappointed that he outlasted Tatum O'Neal and Giselle Fernandez. Towards the end of the competition, Jerry Rice received negative feedback from the judges and scores that were much lower than his competitors,[3] but he advanced to the finals. Even though Rice improved during the finals, some viewers and critics were disappointed with Rice getting into the finals over Lisa Rinna and taking 2nd place over Stacy Kiebler.[4][5]
