No matter how good they are, or nice or whatever, I eliminate Ringers from my vote list right from the get go. My definition of a Ringer is a person who makes money, therefore a professional from dancing for entertainment. Period.
I don't care if someone had a couple of lessons in college or took dance as a child, to me if they're not ringing in the cash, they're not ringers.
So Donny was never vote worthy...or Mya or Carter..
I've never changed from that position and I don't think I ever will.
Because at the end of the day, often times if there's 30 seconds of Ballroom in a dance we're getting a load, it's mostly filler of showdance, and that's what professionals are paid to provide.
