Ryan Lochte DWTS Stormed On Stage
During his critique by Carrie Ann Inaba, an awkward situation went down. Specifically, Inaba was busy talking about Lochte and how the ballroom was a place for second chances when someone stormed the stage!
“Scuse me,” Inaba yelled at the stage rusher. “Hey, back off!” She continued trying to get the person off the stage and then the show awkwardly cut to commercial after fans saw the person and security flashing on the screen.
When the show came back, shot Tom Bergeron said,”We had to go to break because we had a little incident. I would like to personally thank our security team for staying in shape. You okay guys? Ryan, how you doing?”
Lochte, who was clearly shaken up said, “I’m doing good.”
Bergeron then said, “When there’s that kind of strong emotion, what does that make you feel?”
