DWTS Executive Producer Rob Wade Talks On Success Of The Show, Expects 10,000 People At The Grove Tonight

Dancing With The Stars Executive Producer Rob Wade talked with The Wrap about the success of Dancing With The Stars. And note how they are expecting over 10,000 people at The Grove tonight for the Finale.

“We’re expecting to get about ten thousand people there,” executive producer Rob Wade tells TheWrap

“Dancing with the Stars” will wrap its 21st season on Tuesday, making it one of the most successful reality competition shows on television.

According to executive producer Rob Wade, a big part of that was the fact that the show got there first. Having been on the air since 2005, “Dancing With the Stars” laid claim to a space in reality TV very early on, which put its imitators at a serious disadvantage.

“We were just kind of first to the party,” Wade says in an interview with TheWrap. “Being the first one out and the first one that people loved is a huge benefit. I mean there hasn’t been a new reality hit in the competition space in a long time.”

What is the decision process when you’re adding new challenges or changing the show?
I think the main thing is you don’t want to go away from the heart of the show. The show’s format is very strong. So you want to keep the heart of the show. Then you’re finding something which is going to really challenge the celebrities and their dance partner … What makes it interesting is when you throw these challenges at them, because it pushes them out of their comfort zone.


What do you see as the key to the show’s success?

I think at its heart, it’s an entertainment show. It doesn’t try to be something it isn’t. It’s obviously as well just the basic of just watching people learning to achieve something, and learning to overcome their fears is a very compelling story. People relate to that each season. And it’s a very good entertainment show that people love to watch. It’s fun to watch people dance and laugh and cry and feel emotions for something. It’s got all those aspects to it. It’s a show that can make you laugh, it’s a show that can make you cry, it’s a show that can make you shout at the television. And if you’re getting that reaction from a viewer, it’s usually a good show.

PureDWTS Season 21 Finale Night One Media And Interviews – Videos, Scores, GMA Recap, And More

There weren’t any interviews last night after Night one. According to Glamour, the couples went straight to rehearsals to practice the 24-hour dance fusion. However, there were some interviews with the eliminated couple Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson that you can read and view below. They don’t seem to broken up about their elimination and more relieved than anything I think. They are also excited to dance tonight. More below with them and some recaps and interviews with Erin Andrews and Carrie Ann Inaba.

From Glamour:

Still, Carlos reiterated that “everything happens for a reason,” and “someone else needs to win this thing, and I’m totally cool with that.” So what’s next? “I’m sure Witney and I will go in the trailer and hug it out and call it a day, but we made it to the final four, so I can’t complain.”

Looking back on his journey and knowing what he knows now, is there anything Carlos would have told himself earlier in the process? “That’s easy! Listen to Witney!” he laughed. “Listen to every single thing she says, because I fought her on every single thing!” Joked Witney: “Well, not everything. You learned towards the end!”

For tonight’s finale, Carlos and Witney will be dancing the Jive, and best of all, it will be Carlos’ Magic Mike routine, where he’ll be joined by the men of DWTS. “It’ll be fun!” (Um, that’s an understatement for us viewers, don’t you think?)

And after DWTS is over, Carlos gets the Thanksgiving holiday to relax, but heads back to work next Monday where he’ll start rehearsals for Grease: Live!, airing in January on Fox. “I’m playing Kenickie, and Witney will be making sure all my moves on spot-on!”

From Fox411:

Also on Monday night’s show, train hero Alek Skarlatos made it through to the finale with a score of 57 out of 60 for his two dances, the most impressive of which was a freestyle based on an army obstacle course.

During the routine, Skarlatos and partner Lindsay Arnold climbed a wall with ropes and had to fall off of it backwards for a dramatic ending.

Backstage, Judge Carrie Ann Inaba told FOX411 that the Army National Guardsman who helped disarm a terrorist on a Paris train this summer has truly learned how to dance.

“He’s so steadfast and so powerful and so consistent that it’s hard for him to go wrong. He proved himself worthy,” Inaba said, also giving credit to Arnold.

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter will be joining Irwin and Skarlatos in Tuesday night’s “DWTS” grand finale after his perfect 60 night with partner Sharna Burgess. He performed to the Backstreet Boys song “Larger Than Life” in an energetic concert-themed freestyle.

“I want to win,” Carter said in rehearsal footage.

And I sure hope Carrie Ann is wrong on this. I voted harder last night than I ever have!

Longtime Judge Inaba told reporters, “It’s hard,” but added, “Bindi’s been the front-runner. I think a lot of people are thinking that Bindi could take this home.”

However, Inaba cautioned, “I would be a little worried when somebody seems to be such a front-runner. Sometimes people forget to vote. We’ve seen crazy things happen and upsets.”

See E Online for some recaps and interviews. See Pure Derek Hough with more on Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin.

Here is a GMA recap with some interviews in it from rehearsals on Sunday thanks to @IdolXfactor1:

And the scores from last night for those that might have missed them:

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough 10-10-10-10-10-10 60 points total
