'The Host's Leaderboard,' Week 2: A ridiculous 'Dancing With the Stars' chat with Tom Bergeron

Posted on

.

Welcome, DANCMSTRs, to a new PopWatch feature called “The Host’s Leaderboard”! Dancing With the Stars‘ fearless host and leader Tom Bergeron has agreed to call me every Tuesday night to give his “scores” in a few innocuous categories of my choosing. He won’t comment on the dances or who’s going to win, so don’t even ask!

Our Week 2 chat is chock full o’ gems — in addition to expanding on the above categories, Tom gets into why EW.com’s Hidden Gems give him migraines, his seasonal recording of the treasured “Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!” voiceover, and why the molecules of a lifetime’s worth of spray tans can be beneficial to pregnant alums like season 5’s Mel B — “the original ass-grabber.” Enjoy.
