The Good Morning America meteorologist began the season claiming she has no dance experience, but then she made a post on Facebook showing she was, in fact, on her college dance team.
She since deleted the Instagram post, but this Facebook post from last March shows her back in her college dance days:

Paige VanZant also has past dance experience — her mom even owned a dance studio — thought she has been a little more open about it.
According to a report from RadarOnline.com, Nyle, who really does have no prior dance experience, is "furious" to find out his competitors had more background than they let on.
That said, he's apparently feeling better about it after scoring a perfect 30 in the semifinals.
"Nyle thinks it’s hilarious because their karma totally caught up with them this week," Radar's source explained.

It's worth remembering, none of this is against the DWTS rules.
The show has generally tried to stay away from celebs who have strong ballroom backgrounds, but there have been plenty of contestants with dance experience in the past. (Remember ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White? They've won Olympic gold for a sport that has "dance" right there in the title!)
In the end, it's going to come down to who the audience responds to the most. So we hope the stars are focused on creating perfect Freestyles and not worrying about this drama!
Catch the first night of the Dancing With the Stars Season 22 finale on Monday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
