You can have your opinion of Mark, naturally. I have mine. I think he's got amazing potential, the more I read of his diversified career the more I'm interested in him. I would love to have him as a student in one of my classes.
I don't think it's necessarily a fair playing field when the guy found out that the Friday before the Monday announcement and he was told to get on a plane from Hawaii. He was initially going to be on season 10.
Especially when you've got Osmond doing Ballroom for a year and the other ringers born to performance.
Mark, for all the great work you can see on youtube is far from boring.
