"Now, the president tweets every Monday for Dancing With the Stars saying 'vote for Sean Spicer,' and so you know for a lot of people what the president says, that’s what you do. And that's why he's still there," she explains.
Williams, who competed in the show admits that success for contestants has a lot to do with popularity, entertaining the crowd and getting votes, which is less about skill and being the best dancer.
During his debut episode, Spicer's dance partner, Lindsay Arnold admits that she not surprised by the low scores from the judges because Spicer isn't a natural dancer and his choreography skills are at a very basic level, she says:
"[Spicer's dancing at] pre-pre-school level," she adds, "he definitely isn't natural at it."
Sharing the same sentiments as William's that Spicer is securing votes based on popularity and not skill, Cherly Burke of "Dancing with the Stars" admits:
"Obviously there's a lot of power in a tweet from Trump. People are like, 'No no no,’'but people keep voting for him."
Burke, who has spent time with Spicer and says she likes his personality, and despite the negative perception people have of him, she considers him to be funny and down to earth. As for if he will make the finals she reveals:
"As long as he doesn't get to that bottom two where the judges pick — because I think the judges would pick him [to go home]. But if you don't leave it up to the judges, then yes."
Carrie Ann Indaba, a judge on "Dancing with the Stars." admits that she is also frustrated watching Spicer avoid another elimination, while better skilled dancers are being eliminated.
Ultimately she encourages people who are frustrated with the weekly outcomes to make the effort to vote and save their favorite contestants.
