List Rules Vote up the DWTS contestants you think were only selected so they would look stupid.

Dancing with the Stars has had some pretty horrific dancers over the years. Who could forget Jeff Ross leaving the show when he somehow injured his eye? Or Kenny Mayne as possibly one of the worst dancers in history? You have to wonder if some of these celebrities were chosen just to embarrass themselves. However these bad Dancing with the Stars contestants ended up on the show, it made for some great television.

Sometimes celebrities we think can dance surprise us with their two left feet and are absolutely awful. Oher stars like Jerry Springer and Steve Wozniak - for whom we have the lowest of low expectations - are chosen solely to go up there and make fools of themselves. Which other stars were only cast for audience laughs? Vote up the stars who were not only dreadful dancers, but were really only there to humiliate themselves in Prime Time.
