Season three of Dancing With the Starts premiered on September 26 2016

For this season, the scoring system was changed. Fan vote only counted for 25% of the total score and scoring was now translated directly from percentages rather than into ordinals. The judges scores were added up, and each performer was given points based on the percentage of the total points distributed among all performers. (For example, a team received a score of 25. A total of 207 points were awarded to all nine performers. The team received 12.08% of that total, so that team earned 12.08 points. The couple happens to be Sara & .) The fan vote was handled the same way, with the points based on how much of the total fan vote the star received. (So, in the same example, if the team earned 15% of the total fan vote, their grand total is 27.08 points.)

The results shows of this season featured the Slim Fast Dance Challenge, where and illustrated how exercise such as dancing could aid weight loss. Unfortunately, wound up gaining 5 pounds from what she said, "too much Slim Fast
