* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: A little miscommunication happened once with Nyle [=DiMarco=] and his partner Peta Murgatroyd. Nyle is deaf and relied on visual cues to do the dancing. At one point they were dancing separately and she motioned him to walk over to her. It was supposed to be a flirty "Come hither" gesture, but the exact motion she used (with four fingers together) is the ASL sign for "Get over here right now!", causing Nyle to run to her, which briefly threw off their timing. They were able to play it off, however, and neither the judges nor the viewers knew the difference.

* SleepCute: This did not technically happen on the show itself, of course, but after they won the 21st season, Bindi and Derek became so tired from back-to-back TV appearances following the win that they just collapsed on the floor and snuggled close together with each other and with runners-up Nick and Sharna, who just happened to join them.

In general, it follows the ''Series/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).

** 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 after Tamar's withdrawal. It's still unknown whether this will succeed or not.

It's still unknown whether this will succeed or not.



** 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. Now, in Season 22, it's Edyta Sliwinska's turn.
