    He and his daughter are on this annoying T.V. show that my nieces and nephews watch incessantly. Because of that he's on my #@&^ list!

    Plus "Achy Breaky Heart". I mean... I'm not sure I can forgive that.

    Also, I once stumbled onto that show "Doc" and watched one episode in a kind of frozen horror. Never again!

    Oh well. Lets see how he dances. I just have a feeling... not well. But heck, maybe he can win me over. We shall see!

    I love Billy Ray, plus my daughter loves Hannah Montana. I couldn't root against him for that reason alone.

    He's OK, but that song! My hubby changed some of the lyrics to it " Don't play a part, of Achy Breaky Heart ... I just don't think you understand. If you play a part of Achy Breaky Heart, I'll step up and shoot the band."

    I don't know...he doesn't strike me as being particularly graceful. I seem to have read somewhere, I don't remember where, that he had a hard time learning the line dance for that damnable song of his, and it wasn't even very hard. I think Karina just might have her hands full this time. Either that, or they were trying to give her someone they think will garner the popularity vote as a make good for how things went down last season. I don't know...I am interested to see what kind of vibe she puts off with someone that isn't Mario.

    I like him. He may not be a great dancer but I'll bet he will give it a good try.

    Good Lord, his hair just gets worse and worse. First the mullet and now this. Is he trying to do his Keith Urban impersonation?

    I agree about the hair. It doesn't look good on either of them. Why anyone likes that thin, greasy, stringy look is beyond me.
