Alec has been back I think 5 times total. Season 4 and 5 he was out early, season 7 and 9 he was out mid-way. That was the rumor, that Edyta was tired of the treatment she was getting, as well as Alec not being included more in the show. For being a winner, he's now the only one to have won once. And he kind of gets the ugly stepchild treatment, imo. I am completely ready for a new pro to win next season. I'd love to see it be Louis, Tony, Anna, Maks, Karina, or Chelsie. They've all been cheated (in some cases royally) out of the trophy at least once. I'm over seeing people win back to back or how many trophies someone can stack up. It's not the Superbowl, it's a TV dance competition that in 10 years will just be in the reality show hall of fame but pretty much forgotten. This season was much, much better than last season's train wreck. It's why I always worry about the fall seasons. For whatever reason, the spring editions are better. And, since it's the most watched season ever, hopefully TPTB realize they don't need tacky and controversial stunt casting.That was Alec Mazo. John's partner's name was Charlotte (or Christine) Jorgenson? Or something like that. I don't think she has been on any season since the first. Alec came back to dance with Natalie Coughlin, and hasn't he since basically said he won't do it again? Wasn't there some issue when Edyta left about not liking the way the show treated him?

I'm all for innovation, but most of these pros innovate within the rules of the specific dance. When I'm told I will see a waltz, or a paso, or a jive, that's what I want to see, not a conglomeration of moves that don't belong. The free style is the place to go all out because there are no rules in the freestyle. Even Swan Lake, one of the best know ballets, has had different interpretations by different choreographer, but it is always ballet. Bring on the new, but respect the traditional as well.

The thing is i find pleasure in what he and Chelsea do- I like watching it and it's really that simple. maybe I'm not cut out to be a DWTS fan because what is most important tome is the enjoyment i feel in watching performances-how do I feel on the inside when i watch a dance? That's more important to me than the rules (or what rules allegedly exist). I'm not a stickler for form. And marks attitude, well, if he was 40 I'd be concerned, but he's young and creative and sometimes that forms a certain cockiness. I went to art school and I was surrounded by it and i participated in it-trust me, i was laboring under the delusion that I was going to break all of the rules-sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. Some people hated me on a personal level because i wasn't doing what i was supposed to be doing. Some of my attempts were epic failures, some weren't. I was young and I wanted to conquer the world and kick the stuffiness out of the school. I'm sure i was a pain in the a## to some people, but i also know my passion for art drove me and made me feel so alive and full of ideas. I see that in mark and i understand it and i get how people can hate him for the perceived behavior. But, I get it. I really do. It will pass. Right now, he's an ambitious guy who wants to prove himself, right or wrong. I just feel like I get that because i lived part of it and I just don't see him in such black and white terms.
