Competition Rules

Tiers and Getting Points:

Tiers and Getting Points Tiers are how we determine how many points the finalists should get in a competition. It is designed to reflect the difficulty level based on the size of the competition. For example, it is more difficult to get 1st in a competition with 40 couples than with 10 couples. Tiers are calculated by role - not by couple. For example, a competition with 15 leads and 20 follows would be a Tier 1 competition for leads and Tier 2 for follows.


Tier # Competitors 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th Additional Points
1 5-15 5 4 3 2 1 None
2 16-39 10 8 6 4 2 6th to 10th to get 1 point
3 40+ 15 12 10 8 6 1 point for all finalists
