** Season 18 became rather controversial with the three finalists: champion Olympic skater Meryl Davis (basically a professional dancer on ice), runner-up Olympic snowboarder Amy Purdy (who is a double-legged amputee with a limited moveset) and actress Candace Cameron Bure (who's not used to live TV competition). The level of HateDumb that season was so incredible that it's not about picking a favorite anymore but insisting who is the superior dancer, stooping down to name-calling and insults across every internet message boards.

** 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 22 brought back Edyta Sliwinska, after an eleven-season absence, who ended up being the first eliminated pro. The next brought back ''six'' pros from previous seasons.

* {{Fanservice}}: It's ballroom dancing, thus it's a contractual requirement that the women's dresses reveal as much as possible, with the female celebs that are underaged during their respective seasons (such as Zendaya, Sadie Robertson, Willow Shields and Bindi Irwin) sporting costumes that were noticeably more modest (as they're legally required to cover it up) but still just as clingy.

** 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 ''Series/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 as Tamar was still in the hospital with pulmonary embolisms. Jenna finally became a pro in Season 23... Only to be the first eliminated.
