“Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom,” the statement continued. “Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”
Following news that Bergeron and Andrews had gone separate ways with the show, ABC uncovered that Banks would be assuming control over the rules as the show’s host and become a chief maker on the arrangement also.
“I’ve been a fan of ‘DWTS’ since its beginning … The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances … it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk,” supermodel and businesswoman Banks, 46, said in a statement. “Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

“Are you serious? Chris! I’m shaking. Oh my gosh. Chris, I’m going to cry,” Bristowe, 35, asked Harrison.
“I feel like this is back to the moment where you told me I was the Bachelorette. That is the last thing in the world I thought you were going to say. I thought you were going to ask me to take over your job … I don’t know,” she said.
“Is that a yes?” Harrison asked.
“Yes yes! I’m so honored to say yes,” Bristowe replied.
Season 29 of DWTS will premiere Monday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
