Dancing with the Stars - Rodney Hide excerpt (Series Two, Episode Six)

Television (Excerpts) – 2006

Midway through the second season of the hit ballroom dancing show, politician Rodney Hide had won fans, lost weight, and weathered accusations that vote rigging had gone his way. More drama was to come: in this excerpt, Hide fails to catch dance partner Krystal Stuart at the end of their cha-cha, leading to the lowest score possible, and subsequent elimination. In 2018 Stuff rated the mishap as one of Dancing with the Stars' five most memorable moments. Hide regained some dignity in a series final guest appearance, when he and Stuart returned to execute the routine.

Krystal, I thought that you put a lot of trust in Rodney even attempting that.
– Dancing with the Stars judge (and series one winner) Carol-Ann Hickmore, to dancer Krystal Stuart
