    On another forum they said Louis was coming back - as the others were guys, I think the fix was in

    I think the fix was in from the beginning too. I don't think the viewer vote had any effect at all. Just done to get buzz going.

    When I first heard about the "contest" I figured TPTB were putting Sabrina there. The viewers didn't care for her the first time around, thus her elimination. But for some reason the show kept bringing her back for special stuff hoping we'd like her. We never did. I think all in all, the viewers resented her more for just not going away. It reminds me of the saying: "How can we miss you if you won't go away?"
    I wonder if it's the whole ABC/Disney thing. TPTB just didn't seem to get the hint.

    Anyhow, I love Louie, but I hope once again viewer apathy toward Sabrina sends her home early, VERY early. Like in 1st or 2nd. Maybe they'll get the hint then.
    You can bet the judges will be praising her to the sky & giving her outrageously high scores hoping to force her on us longer.

    I think I'd rather watch Bristol.

    Not surprised Sabrina made it, and won't be surprised to see TPTB find a way for her to stay if the votes aren't there I don't get their fascination with her. She isn't all that, I don't think her elimination was all the shocking in hindsight (and all these seasons later). I don't think she has the votes to win, or even make the finals, so I'll think something's up if she does.

    And I thought Bristol was a damper on the season. Even having Louis back isn't enough to make me want to watch her and the praise that's coming, and the weekly 'you were such a shocking elimination!' interview segments we'll probably be hearing from Brooke.

    So my boy Louis finally gets a real dancer and it happens to be one of my least favorite contestants:/ I want her to leave early, but I just love my Louis! Booooooo!

    I hope he does better than he did on SYTYCD.He choreographed something for them, it wasn't very good.

    I really, really wanted to 'like' your post Miss Scarlet, until that last sentence. Other than that I totally agree with everything else you said. The "vote" was never our vote, it was to get Sabrina in again.

    I do have to say that I like the post that has Apolo as the odds on favourite, but am surprised that Helio is ahead of Gilles.

    I thought she was good, but not that good. If she hadn't been eliminated early, I don't think she would have been nearly as praised as she is now because her weaknesses would have come out. I don't think she should have gone home that early in the competition, but I don't think she would have won either.

    Re: DWTS All Stars Cast Announced

    I never doubted that it would be Sabrina. I actually liked her on her season, but have gotten so sick of hearing about the biggest shocking elimination ever since then. Here's my question though, do others really think it was a fix? What do the producers gain by having her on if someone else won the voting? Isn't the whole goal to get viewers - such that they want the person the most people vote for? I will be the first one to agree that when it comes to the show, I don't put anything past them, so it is always possible. I'm just trying to understand what the show's motivation would be to trick the public and put a contestant in who wasn't the most popular of the three choices?

    The obvious rigging of this show is precisely why I have stopped voting and now simply enjoy the dancing of those people whom I like to watch. I will be fast forwarding past Melissa, Bristol, and Sabrina, and will wish all the other good luck.

    Hey! Switch Bristol and the Mindless Grin, and that's my precise first three boot preference.
