According to the insider, the 32-year-old threw a huge hissy fit backstage after the embarrassing rout.

"Ryan was actually telling people that he thought the show was rigged and that everyone was out to sabotage him," said the source.

"He also said that it was unfair of them to put him and Cheryl up against James Hinchcliffe and his partner Sharna Burgess, because he said that they are both 'really strong dancers.'"
