Season 5

The fourth season of Dancing with the Stars premiered 19 March 2007.

To avoid direct competition with FOX's American Idol, Dancing with the Stars changed time slots from the previous season. In the fourth season, the performance show aired on Mondays, and the results show aired on Tuesdays. No elimination was scheduled for the first week, in order to allow viewers two weeks to see all of the couples perform both Latin and Standard ballroom dances.

Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris both returned as hosts. Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli all returned as judges.

On 22 May 2007, Olympic speed-skater Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough were announced as the winners; singer Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson placed second and boxer Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy placed third. Apollo Anton Ohno and Joey Fatone, returned to take part in the all-star season. Fatone was partnered with Kym Johnson and voted off during the second week the competition. Ohno was partnered with Karina Smirnoff and was eliminated during the ninth week.

Changes

Some major changes were made before the start of the season:

  • Actor Vincent Pastore was originally announced as partnering with Edyta Śliwińska, but pulled out after one week of rehearsals. In a statement, Pastore cited his inability to commit to the physical demands of the program. Actor John Ratzenberger then replaced him. However, ESPN host Mike Greenberg had actively campaigned for Pastore's spot on the show.
  • Comedian Tammy Pescatelli was elected to be on the show, however, the producers chose a different direction and Heather Mills was chosen instead.
  • Ashly DelGrosso-Costa, one of the regular dancers, announced that she will not appear this season due to pregnancy. Ashly was married to one of the show's field producers, Mike Costa, on 21 October 2006; their child was due in July 2007. The only time she would return to the series was season 10.
  • Louis van Amstel wrote on his blog that he would not compete this season because all of the female celebrities were taller than him. But, he noted, he would be active on the show as a professional dancer at results shows and as a choreographer for the show.
