Sasha Farber Opens Up About Returning to the DWTS Troupe For Season 25

Sasha Farber Opens Up About Returning to the DWTS Troupe For Season 25

We were all quite disappointed when we didn’t see or hear Sasha Farber‘s name on the pro list for Dancing With The Stars‘ season 25.

Instead, the Russian-Australian dancer returned to the troupe, and he admits that it was hard on him, as well as the producers, too.

“The show changes. They always bring different people in,” Sasha shared with ET. “And it’s always — it’s a height issue for me, too. Everyone’s pretty tall [this season], not going to lie.”

“It was one of those things where they just couldn’t really do much about it and I totally understand,” he added about the producers telling him about his status this season. “It’s a business thing. I’m still proud of the family and we’re going on tour and it’s good. It’s good to be in the ballroom.”

However, while it was a bit weird this week for Sasha, he’s still 100% thankful to be on the show.

“It was a little bit weird to be in the ballroom [this week] and not getting to compete,” he says. “The best part of [the show] is doing the creative aspect of it. Getting someone who has never danced before and transforming them into this superstar, and they become a true dancer with the knowledge that you give them…but I mean, I’m still there and I get to perform.

Sasha continues, “Once you’re in the Dancing With the Stars family, you’re in the family. And it really is a family. All the pros love each other, all the celebs become amazing friends.”

Sasha Farber Fans Are Disappointed He Won't Be a Pro on 'DWTS' Season 25

Sasha Farber Fans Are Disappointed He Won't Be a Pro on 'DWTS' Season 25

If you got up early this morning and saw the official announcement of the returning pros for Dancing With The Stars, you might’ve noticed one big name missing — Sasha Farber.

While fiancee and reigning champ Emma Slater will be back on the ballroom floor as a pro, Sasha will not, and his fans are really sad about it.

We don’t know why Sasha wasn’t chosen as a pro this season. It could be because of a height requirement in one of the celebrities and be back in the troupe, or just because he wants to take a season off.


However, we do know we will miss seeing his amazing choreography every week.

Last season, Sasha made it to 4th place with his partner, Olympian Simone Biles.

Check out all the fan reactions about Sasha not returning as a pro for DWTS 25 below!

Simone Biles' Former 'DWTS' Partner Sasha Farber Comes to Her Defense Over Internet Bully

Simone Biles' Former 'DWTS' Partner Sasha Farber Comes to Her Defense Over Internet Bully

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles had to deal with an Internet troll this week who told her she wasn’t a “role model” — and her former dance partner, Sasha Farber, totally had her back.

The bully told her she was a “bad role model” because she took a year off from training, and while the 20-year-old gold medalist had a beautiful clap-back, that doesn’t make what happened OK.

“You are one of the hardest working people I know,” former Dancing With the Stars partner Sasha reassured her, “u deserve every second of this time off. Those bully’s have no life or idea.”

“Thanks Sasha,” she responded, “just hard to see all the time!”

He’s totally right. You are a role model and a rock star Simone, and you deserve every second of your time off — and do your best to ignore the trolls, because the vast majority of us are in AWE of you.

Simone Biles Dishes On Judges' Wants on 'DWTS': 'You Almost Have to Read Their Minds' On What They Want To See

Simone Biles Dishes On Judges' Wants on 'DWTS': 'You Almost Have to Read Their Minds' On What They Want To See

Simone Biles absolutely owned the show on Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars, with just one comment.

After getting a harsh criticism from judge Carrie Ann Inaba after her first dance about how she is always smiling and happy and the judge felt like the audience didn’t know the real her, Simone came back with a strong trio dance.

However, she wasn’t smiling when the judges came back with critiques on the dance, and not because they were bad. She just didn’t feel like smiling, and she didn’t have to.

“Smiles don’t win gold medals,” she simply stated, when host Tom Bergeron asked her. A total win for her and many of her fans.

Later on, Simone opened up about the show and how she handled it all.

“I feel like everyone has their own opinion, clearly, and I feel it’s just how you take it,” she says about how she is doing her best to convey real emotion. “I feel like I am trying, I am being honest, but if they don’t see that, I don’t know what more I can do.”
