Dancing With the Stars is nearing the end of its 31st season, but leave it to Tyra Banks to keep the show interesting for the cast and viewers alike.

The America’s Next Top Model creator found herself in the middle of judging — quite literally — during ’90s Week of the Disney+ dance competition. During Monday night’s episode, Bachelorette alum Gabby Windey and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy were up to perform their samba to Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” Afterward, the duo awaited feedback from the judges’ panel but this part of the show didn’t go as planned.

Before the judges announced Gabby and Val’s scores for the night, viewers caught the co-host casually chatting with Bruno Tonioli while in line with the camera. But what really set folks off was Tyra walking right in front of the judges as they attempted to share the results with the competitors.

Despite knowing this probably wasn’t an intentional move by Tyra, it didn’t stop TV-goers from feeling sharing their feelings on Twitter.

“SCREAMING at Tyra walking across the judges while they’re giving their scores 😂 She has multiple mess ups every episode and it has gotten to the point of pure comedy,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Omg I really try to like Tyra. She just walked in front of the judges when they were giving their scores … she’s just awkward,” another follower added. “Not Tyra walking through the judges shot lmaoooooo she kills me,” a different fan quipped.

Folks who have tuned in throughout the latest season may know that she’s experienced similar situations before. Early on in the run, Tyra flubbed the pronunciation of pro Artem Chigvintsev‘s name, and just last week she failed at making head judge Len Goodman laugh with a cringe-worthy comment.

That said, she has made it clear that she tries her best and her mishaps are simply reality. Speaking with Us Weekly back in 2020, the former supermodel opened up about her experience with the cameras rolling in real-time.

“Every host messes up. It’s just normal. It’s live TV. If it wasn’t live, there would be no mess-ups,” Tyra told the outlet. “There’s a very clear way as a host that you just read the words and you’re perfect and you know exactly how to do that. But when you’re relaxed and you keep it real, the mess-ups happen.”
