* MrFanservice: Every single male pro, current and former. Most notably, the Chmerkovskiy brothers, Maksim (commonly referred to as the [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys "Bad Boy of the Ballroom"]]) and Valentin. Dancers will occasionally take off a season for various reasons, often with little fanfare, but when Maks decides to take a season off (or, in season 21, returns as a guest judge), it makes the headlines.

** For the pros, Kym Johnson returned in season 20 as a professional dancer after taking three seasons off to judge the Australian version of the show. One season later, Karina Smirnoff, Louis van Arnstel and Anna Trebunskaya all returned, although they didn't exactly last long in the competition.

** Season 21 tried to invoke this by having troupe member Jenna Johnson as the go-to replacement for incapacitated female celebs, with her taking Kim Zolciak-Biermann's place during her ''IDreamOfJeannie''-themed samba on TV Night, almost replacing Tamar on the duet rumba with Nick and Sharna (it didn't actually happen due to Tamar's last-minute return to the studio, but the outtake reel shown during the finale confirms it), and performing a foxtrot to Alessia Cara's "Here" with Val as his season closer after Tamar's withdrawal. It's still unknown whether this will succeed or not.

In general, it follows the ''StrictlyComeDancing'' celebrity formula: the show pairs a number of well known celebrities with professional ballroom dancers, who each week compete by performing one or more choreographed routines that are pertinent and follow the chosen theme for that particular weeks' prearranged theme. The dancers are then scored by a panel of judges. Viewers are given a certain amount of time to place votes for their favorite dancers, either by telephone or online. The couple with the lowest combined score provided by the judges and viewers is eliminated. This process continues until there are only two or three couples left; when they have competed for the last time one couple is declared the champion. Of the contestants, usually at least one has a bit of controversy around them, at least one is a 50-plus-year-old man with two left feet, at least one is a B- or C- list actor or actress, and at least one is famous in the world of sports (and these are most likely to win it all; eight of the eighteen winners have some sporting experience, with the rest (with the exception of J.R. Martinez) having dancing training beforehand).
