Jerry Springer will forever be synonymous with daytime drama, public nervous breakdowns and family troubles for many audiences worldwide.
As the longtime host of The Jerry Springer Show’s long-running tabloid talk show, over the years, Springer has worn many hats. But none of his performances were more odd than his participation in the third season of the Dancing with the Stars dance competition program. Springer danced before being unceremoniously eliminated in many episodes of the hit show – but viewers of the show will still still recall how he crashed and burned during his dance routines.
How did they make Jerry Springer famous?
Do you have any idea what time it is? It is time for the SLAPPY hour of Jerry Springer! Enjoy this SLAP-tacular movie, please! Jerry Springer was born in England in 1944. (So, happy holidays!) #SLAPPYhour #JerrySpringer #JudgeJerry pic.twitter.com/uiR2irUzUX- Jerry Springer Show (@SpringerTV) December 25, 2020 Raised in a working-class household, Springer, when he was just six years old, moved with his family to the United States. In the 1960s, he attended Tulane University, graduating with a degree in political science in 1965. Springer went into politics and became Robert F. Kennedy’s counselor.
Springer entered a law firm after Kennedy’s assassination and subsequently ran for Congress.
Springer was elected Cincinnati Mayor in 1977 and held the office for one year. However, Springer’s political career was not what would make him famous – it was his affiliation with The Jerry Springer Show, the wildly influential tabloid talk show that premiered on television in 1991.
The show, devoted to sensationalism, became a national talking point and ultimately ran until 2018, and with fans, the show’s re-runs are still popular.
Springer hosts an entirely new show these days, called Judge Jerry. Nevertheless, most people most probably associate him with the legendary display he’s been leading for so many years.
When on “Dancing with the Stars” did Jerry Springer appear?

Jerry Springer was revealed as a contestant in 2006 for the third season of the popular Dancing with the Stars dance competition program.
The news surprised fans, many of whom would not have associated any kind of physical activity with Springer – let alone the world of ballroom dancing.
Nevertheless, Springer announced he was up to the task, and Springer was there with his designated wife, Kym Johnson, when the show’s third season premiered. Unfortunately, Springer’s time on the show was not a shining moment in his career, and many viewers look back on his time on the show as one of the most humiliating dance appearances of any contestant in the history of Dancing with the Stars.
There was no sparkling moment for Jerry Springer on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Tune in to Entertainment Tonight @etnow to see our favorite talk show giant JERRY SPRINGER #JerrySpringer – Today Monday, 10/21 on ET pic.twitter.com/KTNlKsFAyX- Jerry Springer (@jerryspringer) October 21, 2019 According to Best Life, Jerry Springer explained early on that he felt after just one or two appearances he would be eliminated from the competition. Still, before being disqualified, he managed to make it to the seventh episode, showing off some seriously memorable dance routines. Springer and Johnson performed a few distinct classical dances, including mambo and foxtrot, but with Johnson, both the judges and viewers questioned Springer’s lack of rhythm and poor chemistry.
If anything, Springer illustrated the awful dance performances with a sense of humor. “He told host Tom Bergeron in one episode, “At my age, you don’t shake your hips anymore, you replace them.” When he was finally eliminated in week seven, Springer seemed to recognize his poor performance by telling the judges, “Thank you for inviting me – and thank you for letting me go home.” Ultimately, with Kyy’s uncoordinated routines, gaudy, awkward costumes, and awful chemistry, Springer’s uncoordinated routines, gaudy, awkward costumes, and awful chemistry
