Terence Lewis


Internationally acclaimed choreographer Terence Lewis is not new to realty shows. He has judged a number of such shows in the past, including Dance India Dance, Nach Baliye and Dance Champions. However, his latest revelation about such shows has come as a big surprise for all of us.

During an interaction with media, Terence Lewis said that contestants on several such shows invest a huge amount of money to buy votes in order to win them. He pointed out that reality television has become just like political elections where candidates go all out to win.

“It is a big game out there. You have to invest a lot to win because it is all based on voting. Voting can be done in various ways, so contestants put a lot effort in that direction. But at the same time, I feel truly talented people get their dues. Raghav (Juyal) is a good example. He did not just win but he is doing really good work in the industry,” said Terence.

The choreographer went on to add that contestants invest a lot because they want to win. “They invest a lot because they want to win. It is very simple. They get people to call up or vote (for them) to be in the show. The channels don’t have a problem with that because for the channels it doesn’t matter who wins or loses. They only want to make a good show, and want people to watch their show. They are not concerned with all of these things. It is the contestant who wants to win and hence takes various routes to win. It is similar to politics, when a candidate is fighting an election. It is obvious he will invest his money to win the election.”

He added, “I feel fortunate I haven’t been part of such shows. I am not a representative of any particular channel, so I can’t take those decisions (on cleaning up the voting process).”
