Obviously I do think a pro can help/hinder a celeb's chances, especially if they're a newbie coming in 10 seasons later when the other pros have been on nearly every season since the beginning. A lot of Dmitry fans seemed to have it out for Damian because they felt he stole his spot. So that could be working against him; people may not want to vote for Pamela because of Damian. Dmitry, Lacey, and Chelsie all had their SYTYCD fanbases coming in with them. Derek and Mark had Julianne's popularity. The only other new pros that have joined since season 5 were one show wonders and either didn't do well or didn't seem to mesh with the audience. I said before the season started that I wondered if Damian would hurt Pam's chances. I really like the guy and think they're a great duo together. But if anything, I'll stand by my opinion that people either remember the Tommy Lee era Pamela or don't go for her schtick.Originally Posted by Luvstruck;3867187;
I cast my votes for Aiden/Edyta and felt like I did my patriotic duty! Of course I got really nervous towards the end for Erin/Maks, since I split votes between them. But vote, vote, vote! I think Pamela being in the bottom 2 was probably as big a shock this show has seen in the first elimination.I don't usually vote on these shows... but I learned my lesson last night. Pam needs people like me!!! Don't worry Pam I'll have your back next week.
