Dancing With the Stars' emotional performances are real, honest, and near impossible to fake. The results and voting process, however? Another story.
After being ousted on last Monday's shocking double elimination, Sean Avery implied that the format was tweaked just to get him off the ABC reality hit.
"I think we knew as of probably Monday last week that our fate was sealed," the former NHL star said in an interview on Good Morning America.
"I had a conversation with Conrad [Green], one of the producers, and I was upset at the package that they had brought in the week previous."
"It was a very tacky attempt to show me as the bad boy of DWTS."
"And I think in reality TV or some sort of competition, if you have a disagreement with the producers then generally that seals your fate quite early."
