Dancing With the Stars Season 3 Episodes

20 Episodes 2006 - 2006

Host Tom Bergeron and judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are all back for the Season 3 of the reality show. With 11 couples now competing in the show, some changes are necessary. The scoring system has been completely revamped: Fan vote now only counts for 25% of the total score, and the judges score are added up. The results show features the Slim Fast challenge, where Tysonia Sichinga and Christian Perry illustrate how dancing can be useful in weight-loss programs. Among the contestants for the season are actress Vivica A. Fox, talk-show host Jerry Springer, NFL player Emmitt Smith and singer Willa Ford.
