    ditto on that. I don't get it. I think she is a terrible dancer. I think she's the worst one on there. I hated that the best dancer is now gone over her. (the girl in the green dress)

    I agree that all the soap fans are going to keep Kelly in. I can't believe Joey was in the bottom 2, that is just wrong.
    ah ha! that is who is voting for her (she is awful IMO) cute girl but, awful dancer..................

    I think Joey is very good and would have quit watching if he went. Vander was fun to watch and his partner I think is the best of all of the pros.....

    ditto on your post!!!!!

    Pomeraniac once posted that "since Karen14 started using her (Pom's) picture as her avatar" the two of them were starting to think alike. I think of this every time I see it.

    I felt badly for Kelly when she was bashed so badly on the first two shows, but for her to be kept in this because she's on a soap opera is just wrong.

    The judges are privy to the popular vote and they could be influenced by a misplaced fan base and give their scores accordingly, so the better dancers do not get eliminated. I am not talking conspiracy. The judges are focused on skill and would be disappointed if the show were reduced to a popularity contest. If they feel, say, Kelly is just not up to the standard of John and Rachael but her popularity is over the top, this could happen. I am not saying they would arrange a winner, just be influenced by the popular vote.

    I can't believe I am saying this. I usually poo poo theories of fixing things behind the scenes.

    Well, at least as far as this viewer is concerned, this is not just a dance contest...if it were just for dancing, we could just judge professional or very advanced amateurs and nit-pick their floppy arms and loose ankles to our hearts' content...but this is first and foremost...summer entertainment, and sometimes sex and sequins and boobs can be entertaining.

    I have absolutely NO IDEA who is the best dancer, and don't really care. But I voted for Kelly just because she is the hottest thing the FCC clowns have allowed on my tv screen for months.

    It's all in the marketing. If the show is marketed as "vote for your favorite star just because they're your favorite," then anything goes. But my impression has been that partial mastery of ballroom dancing is supposed to be a consideration (otherwise why bother having real dance judges). That's why the dancing - not just the showmanship - is important to me.

    If truth is relative, how do you know?

    The fallacy with this theory however is the fact that the judges are giving their score prior to the viewers voting.

    Yes I know. It influences them for the following week. For example, Rachael was in first place with the judges last week. Could they have been a little more generous, say by one point, to insure her staying having been privy to her close call the week before? I am not saying they necessarily discussed it either. They adore Rachael and perhaps saw that she did not have the fan base of the others and since she is more skilled than two of them............

    just musing.
