Former Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke had many celebrity partners over her 18-season run on the show but Ian Ziering sticks out to her as her least favorite.
Burke appeared on the podcast Allegedly with Theo Von and Matt Weiss and told them the former 90210 and Sharknado star “made me want to slit my wrists” and she couldn’t stand being with him. She says she even cried to the show’s producers and begged them to either change partners or just force them to be eliminated. Instead, the pair finished in 4th place. Burke was so disgusted by him, even his name. She added, “The fact that his name’s not [pronounced] ‘EEE-an’ and it’s ‘EYE-an’ makes me want to throw up.” (Premiere Prep)
