Total scores again:
Sugar Ray 34
I actually think these are about accurate. Chelsea should be higher, but she's paying for her pro's shenanigans. I just don't like him and that didn't score any points with me.
I also think that Sugar Ray should be a little higher - at least above Petra and Kendra. Judges were tough on him tonight for some reason. But then, I'm not a professional dancer so what do I know?
I think Mike has more potential than Wendy but I'm guessing her fanbase will carry her through this first round at least. My prediction - Mike is out tomorrow.
I do hope Mark keeps getting called out. Lacey has in the past, and so has Derek (not to mention probably other pros and celebs).
I watch the show, but don't post much. But I had to come in and comment on the costumes this season (so far). Is it just me.....or do the dresses look like refurbished satin draperies?
Otherwise, I love the show - go Kirstie!!
I wasn't crazy about Mike's routine. I just can't get into Lacey's choreography. I don't think he's long for the show. I predict he might make it through this week, but he'll be gone by week 3. I think Sugar Ray is also vulnerable, though he's very well known, and an icon in sports. So that might help him. I didn't think his routine was anywhere near as bad as the judges made it out to be. I did think Ralph's routine, in re-watching it, was a little hectic, but he deserved to come out on top for the night. Hines didn't disappoint, I'm glad Romeo stepped it up, and after Chris's lack of cha cha last week, it's reasons like tonight I'm glad everyone had a second chance to impress. What a difference! Mark needs to be banned from choreographing jives. I'll be curious if he and Chelsea stick with the whole 'we're young and daring' approach and thumb their noses at the basics and rules, or scrap breaking the rules and going that extra mile. Kendra I thought was better than last week, but I'm still hoping for more. Something about her and Louis seem disconnected, which disappoints me even more.
As for Wendy-bless her heart. And bless Tony times 1,000. Having an attitude might doom Chelsea/Mark, but I think they're both popular enough that their die hard fans would vote for them just for showing up. However, I may have to re-think my opinion that Mark is considered one of the golden pros by the judges. I still expect things to turn around for him and Chelsea. For anyone wanting to keep track, 7 of the songs used tonight have been used before in previous seasons. And I like the fact that the show is alternating dances and the order more.
Someone mentioned earlier tonight, the suggestion of using the AI strategy of a judges save. I don't watch AI either, but I do know that the judges opinions don't really matter. Voting is strictly fan based. The judges on DWTS get their say and their scores factor into eliminations. That method totally wouldn't work for this show.
I haven't read all the post on the thread, but I just have to say that this is the most competitive season so far. Bravo on the casting. There are no ringers and everyone is giving their all. As far as I'm concerned this season is up for grabs. All of the couples put their best foot forward this week and most showed great improvement. This will be a fun season to watch.
At this point I would have to say that the eliminated couple should be Mike and Lacey. Sugar Ray and Anna could also be in jeopardy. I'd hate to see Anna go so soon because I love her so much, but Sugar showed the least improvement over the last week.
Also, looks like tomorrow night at 8 pm there's a recap episode leading up the results show.
I agree with you. They both look ridiculous and both seem to love their boobs more than anybody else. It's quite unbecoming and obviously looks really awkward especially when you are trying to dance. They will never be able to do what other slim dancers do.
I'm not quite sure why Len is so hard on Sugar. He isn't that bad and it is fun watching him dance. I hope that his fans will pull him thru as it will be interesting to see if he improves week to week. Keep Sugar Keep Sugar!!
Chris Jericho has really surprised me and loved his dance tonight. His size shouldn't necessarily be a detriment as Warren Sapp was also pretty light on his feet.
Romeo also surprised me. I thought he would have the similar attitude as his father had, but he is proving that he doesn't at all, at least in regards to dancing. Their dance was quite lovely.
Hines doesn't surprise me at all. I always end up rooting for the football players. (except for Lawrence Taylor) They always dance well and their attitude and dedication always impresses me. Hines has something extra special about him I guess its probably his charisma. He just comes across as a really happy, positive person. His dance did not disappoint.
As for the ladies, I'm glad that Kirstie can pull off the dances that she does. Other than Chelsea I don't really care how the other women will perform. Boring.
Hopefully Wendy goes home, or better yet a tie between Wendy and Mike. And a SHOCKING DWTS elimination!! :blush
I think Mike will go this week, but then a steady stream of women will be voted off until Sugar Ray's fanbase gets tired down the road. But I think we're in for a male winner this year. ;)
