The former Married At First Sight contestant failed to impress with his cha-cha (not a euphemism) during last night’s premiere on Channel 10.
Dean, who was dressed in a construction vest, performed to MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This and attempted to breakdance and do “the worm” during his dance.
The judges applauded his enthusiasm but had little else positive to say.
“You look like about 90 per cent of my mates dancing,” joked judge Tristan MacManus. “It wasn’t a good dance but I loved your performance.”
Fellow judge Sharna Burgess was less complimentary.
“I’m a little speechless to be honest,” she said. “I love the song.”
Viewers mocked Dean’s performance on social media, with one Instagram fan writing, “That was a trainwreck” and another adding, “Oh my god! That was really hard to watch.”
