So would it be wrong for viewers to cast their votes based solely on the pros? Mark Ballas thinks so. “It’s a team,” he said this week. “They vote for a team, how we get along together. It’s not about each individual.” Then again, it’s easy for him to say: He’s won two times. Ask the others who haven’t waltzed away with a win, and the answers are very different.
Mark - kettle's calling - you're black
Perhaps he should play back video of his dances, because it appears to be primarily about HIM and how he can showcase his abilities and how he disqualifies what his star says because he knows best. Derek used to do it and now Mark does it. When you find yourself watching the pro and not the star and/or seeing partners dance together, then you know that the pro is about the pro. I do so miss Cheryl and Gilles dancing. SIGH.
DWTS premiered in June 2005.
They do 2 seasons per year.
Seems like it's been on an eternity, though?!!

Chelsea Kane is 'Dancing With the Stars' best, says 'SYTYCD's' Mary Murphy
Chelsea Kane is 'Dancing With the Stars' best, says 'SYTYCD's' Mary MurphyMary Murphy, in the midst of Las Vegas auditions for "So You Think You Can Dance," picks Chelsea Kane as her favorite dancer on this season of "Dancing With the Stars."
"I still think they have quite a journey to go through," Murphy tells Zap2it. "I definitely think Chelsea [should win]. I don't know that she will win because she is not well known. I definitely think she is producing the best dancing on the show."
Besides Kane, Murphy is also impressed by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward.
"I have been blown away by Hines Ward," Murphy says. "I am a huge football fan. I just can't believe him! I think he is doing tremendous. I don't care if you are an athlete. Ballroom dancing is a totally different ballgame. I know people anticipate Kirstie Alley, may be the favorite. I am just talking about the dancing."
"Treat others the way you want to be treated."
I don't really watch SYTYCD, but from what I've seen of Mark's choreography, I think it'd be a better fit for that show. Who knew the SYTYCD alums would do less type of choreography styled for that show than Mark? So I'm not surprised Mary Murphy would like her. I do think Chelsea's a good dancer. She probably has more experience than anyone by the looks of it, and age probably helps her.
And Mark is kidding himself if he thinks his popularity doesn't factor into some of his partners doing well. Of course what an ego bruiser if he didn't make the finals That said, I think the popularity of Kristi and Shawn, and Bristol's radical voting bloc, would have gotten the same results without him.
Another possible feeling of Hough Envy. Last I heard Derek was still dating British singer Cheryl Cole. She judges the X Factor in England and is rumored to be taking a judges spot on the US X Factor. So it makes me wonder if there's a possibility she could get Derek involved with that show somehow. Which would be one more accomplishment for Derek and a possible reason he wouldn't return to DWTS. If Derek returns for season 13, it may be his last, or close to it. He may come back for a 4th win, figure no one will top that, and call it a day.My upcoming Results Show Recap touches upon the topic of Hough Envy.
