It’s supposed to be the reality TV show that pairs amateurs with trained professional dancers.

But critics are blasting Dancing With The Stars for allowing Alfonso Ribeiro to compete in the popular contest.

The National ENQUIRER is reporting that viewers are complaining about the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star who wowed judges from the moment he took to the dance floor.

The 43-year-old was such a gifted child star that he won praise in 1983 when he played the lead in the Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid.

TV critic Bill Mann is not happy. He told The ENQUIRER: “I believe the fix is in!

“Alfonso Ribeiro shouldn’t be allowed to compete. It’s unfair to the rest of the contestants.”
