Tom Bergeron, the television personality, comedian, and actor, has some safety tips to share with Tyra Banks as she released a new poster for the 29th season of "Dancing With The Stars."
Fans of the celebrity dance competition series, "DWTS," were thrilled this month with the announcement of the upcoming season of the show. With comedian Tom Bergeron's remake of the series' poster, the excitement just got bigger.
The 65-year-old poked fun at Tyra Banks' poster, which featured an up-close photo of Banks' face with the date and time of the event, as well as the host's identity written over it.

More captivating about the post, however, was the creatively outlined lips of the hostess, Tyra Banks. Her lips sported what seemed like a million sparkling crystals doubling as lip gloss.
Bergeron shared his engineered version of the poster to his twitter page, along with a hilarious caption, which was undeniably a jab at the "Dancing With The Stars" hostess. He wrote:
"This Just In: National Association Of Lip Safety cautions against applying multiple small mirrors on the mouth. One bad chew, and it's seven years of bad luck."
The picture showed Bergeron's face up-close, with a mesmerized expression as he held a crystal globe over his lips. The post garnered hilarious comments from fans, with some expressing their regret over his exit from the show after a fifteen-year stint.
Further shading the celebrity dance series, the ex-host edited his Twitter bio to hilariously reference his run on the show. He described himself as the "Former Co-Host of 'Footwork With The Famous."
With the announcement of the upcoming 29th season of "DWTS," ABC and BBC Studios revealed that Tyra Banks would take up the hosting in place of Bergeron. Although "DWTS" fans were shocked by the news, Banks embraced the opportunity wholeheartedly and the milestones it represented.
During an interview on Good Morning America, the 46-year-old model and businesswoman shared her happiness over the new position and said she was excited bout hosting and executive producing.
This comes weeks after Tom Bergeron and his former co-host, Erin Andrews, took to social media to announce their ousting from the show and how shocked they were by the development.
While Bergeron reflected on the impact of his 15-year run on the show and the sudden ousting on his career, sportscaster, Andrews noted he would forever cherish his days on the set. The two hosts may have embraced the news remarkably well, but fans and former "DWTS" contestants found it more difficult to do the same.
Many expressed their disapproval of the move, stating they were done watching the series. Speaking on their decision, ABC disclosed that the development was a means of introducing more creative measures to light up the series.
Meanwhile, Banks achieved two new feats through her new gig. Firstly, she became the first black woman to host the show and, additionally, the first solo host on the series. Thumbs up, Banks!
