The jury was out on "Dancing With The Stars" host Tyra Banks after she wore a yellow outfit for the "Use Your Vote" episode of the show on Monday night.


"Dancing With The Stars" host Tyra Banks must be wondering what she can do to stop fans from criticizing her every move on the show.

Banks found herself at the wrong side of trolls once again following Monday night's "Use Your Vote" episode of the ABC famous dance show. She wore a yellow flowy gown that covered her from the cleavage to her legs. Banks also wore long brown hair.

The official Instagram page of "DWTS" shared a photo of Banks, urging fans to get their voting hands ready. However, fans were not so pleased with the host's outfit.

Many of them expressed their displeasure on Twitter, comparing Banks' attire to the character, "Big Bird," on the television series, "Sesame Street." One fan shared a picture of Banks next to that of Big Bird and wrote:

"Who wore it better? #DWTS."


A second fan shared a short clip of Big Bird spinning and captioned it saying Banks looked like the Sesame Street character. A third fan trolled Banks, saying Big Bird had called and wanted his costume back. Another went further with the trolling, asking if Banks robbed Sesame Street and asked someone to check on Big Bird.

After the second episode of "DWTS," which she admitted was not perfect, the host defended herself, hailing her will to keep going despite her mistakes.


Banks had earlier revealed that she would wear her signature color, yellow, as one of her outfits for Monday night's show, adding that she would later switch to a neon look.

According to the host, her yellow outfit was inspired by singer and fashion superstar Rihanna, who wore a similar outfit to the Met Gala. Banks also added that the dress was so big she almost decided against wearing it.


Banks further described the gown as beautiful and spectacular. She revealed she felt it was too soon in the season to roll it in because she thought it was a lot.

The yellow gown is not the first statement outfit Banks has worn on the show this season; she also stunned in a gold metallic jumpsuit for the '80s Night episode, among other eye-catching outfits.


However, despite her best efforts, a section of fans criticizes Banks' every move on the show. After the second episode of "DWTS," which she admitted was not perfect, the host defended herself, hailing her will to keep going despite her mistakes on the night.

"DWTS" ratings have also gone up this season, and a source close to Banks told E! News that the latter is not worried about losing or fighting to save her job.

The source further said Banks loved what she does, and the show's executives feel the same way. Hence she does not listen to all the noise and social media critiques.
