Why did Tyra Banks leave Dancing with the Stars after Season 3? DEETS inside


Tyra Lynne Banks, also known as BanX, started her career as a model at the age of 15 and has been working on multiple platforms ever since. Tyra, who was also featured on the cover of GQ and named the first African-American woman to appear on the cover page, has made a lot of waves.

With being one of the highest paid models in the world in the early 2000s, and serving as a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 1997 to 2005, she’s made her mark in just about every area Hollywood caters to. And as of now, she stands strong, beautiful, and bold with her adorable figure.

Many also got to know Tyra Banks closely while she hosted Disney + Dancing with the Stars for three long years. He has now made the decision to embark on a new journey and say goodbye to the old one.

This is what Tyra Banks commented on:

Banks commented in an interview with the outlet: “I feel like it’s time to focus on my work and my entrepreneurship, as well as producing more TV, but behind the scenes.” “I think it’s time to graduate from the ballroom to the floor of the stock exchange… from the ballroom to the boardroom!”

“Don’t you think it’s time? Yeah, I think it’s time,” Banks, who was also the show’s executive producer, continued when asked if she was really leaving Dancing with the Stars… I think it’s time. That my heart and soul goes into my work; it’s also into producing new TV… But I really, really want to focus on my work, and you can’t do that while hosting a show.”

As Tyra confirms her way out of Dancing with the Stars, let’s take a look back at her journey

Supermodel Tyra joined DWTS as a host in Season 29 in 2020, replacing seat Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrew. When candidly stating how DWTS reminded her of her days, she quoted, “It always took me back to my days of being raised 10 degrees on the platform.”

Tyra, who has been hosting for quite some time as she previously co-hosted America’s Got Talent season 12, not only that, but has also started a variety of businesses, including her own ice cream line, SMiZE Cream.

Tyra also addressed the darker side of being a host, mentioning how things are fed to her and asked to repeat the same words on stage, which she considers an injustice, and she said sometimes she “had to take arrows for a team” as a host.
