James Maslow

'Dancing With the Stars' Is Rigged

... Claim Disgruntled Fans

5/20/2014 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

5020-dwts-james-maslow-and-peta-murgatroyd-getty-01James Maslow's fans are fuming mad he got kicked off "Dancing With the Stars" this week ... claiming a glitch in fan voting might have cost James votes ... TMZ has learned.

Maslow and his partner Peta Murgatroyd got the ax on Monday's show, despite not finishing with the lowest score from the judges (that would be Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas).

Several fans have voiced outrage over Facebook voting, claiming votes for James and Peta were instead counted for Meryl and Maxim (see below).

But a rep for ABC claims despite the automated Facebook response ... the votes were all counted correctly. The rep blew off the apparent error as a "caching anomaly" that only affected a small amount of users.

Tell that to James and Peta.

Its a really stupid show. They all should be kicked off and canceled.
People are way to wrapped up in BS tv milking them for money to "vote" for stupid crap. Save your money instead of wasting it on lame ass tv shows

All reality shows are fake, scripted or fixed. It is better for the ratings. Does anyone think they are real???

Rigged or not, these two aren't the first to be voted off the show whether or not they were good dancers or not. They need to get over themselves!

It's rigged because Derrick Hough is given a partner every time that will get him to the finals, because he is a so called "Fan Favorite". They purposely have Maksim lose every time because his disappointment and anger issues equals ratings. They are going to have Maks when this season because they want him to come back next season. The shows rigged, because there is no way Bristol Palin could have made it to the finals, regardless of all the Palin Butt sniffers out there voting.

We host viewing of the show on Monday nights with our neighbors that enjoy the show. We're seniors and like to predict who will get voted off. We guessed correctlty the last 3 weeks. We all vote for Candace this season because she's never danced and is doing wonderful. She's the mother of 3 and working her ass off.
