    Re: Dancing With the Stars 16 Pool

    It is going to be a nailbiter (on the show and on here!), for sure. Though I have felt for weeks now that Jacoby is probably running away with the fan vote. (Bummer for me, as I prefer Aly and Zendaya, and much to my shock, even Pickler.)

    pikachu, thanks for all your hard work on this! One small thing-- Sequin Overload isn't putting Jacoby & Karina into play as a reserve couple; it's my team that is.

    Pool Results Show

    The show opens with the Dancing With the Stars introductory music being played as each of the members of the pool descends the grand staircase to the stage to find out what order they finished in and who is taking home a trophy. KatesMom snags Maks and Val on her way down, having one on each arm to escort her to the stage, living up to her pool team name, Chmerkovskiy Sandwich, and enjoying every minute of it! There’s a little tussle over Maks when karalott throws her arms around him, squeals “I missed you, my bad boy!” and tries to bring him to her side onstage but Maks resolves the issue by giving karalott a hug, gesturing to KatesMom “Call me!” and disappearing backstage with Val.

    Then the Lift Police arrive to haul Carrie-Ann away for questioning about inconsistent judging practices, Len is given his happy pills so his grumpiness doesn’t overshadow the occasion, and Bruno is confined to a straightjacket in his seat so he doesn’t stand up and smack Len in the face with his wild gesticulating during the proceedings.

    Tom Bergeron cracks a few jokes at the judges’ expense and keeps everyone waiting for results using every trick in the book. First, he tells every pool member with a team name starting with an S to form a line. Then, he tells them to conga, and after all that he says none of them are either the winner or the lowest place team. He was just having some fun with them before getting down to business. After five commercial breaks, three guest singers, talks with former DWTS pools winners and losers, and upteen performances by the Macy’s Stars of Dance, Tom is ready to announce who won third place in the pool.

    With 2,464 points, third place goes to…Paddle Pleasers! Brooke rushes over to ask RickiRick how it feels to come in third, how it feels to be asked what it feels like to come in third, and how it feels to feel like you’ve been asked how you feel so many times you no longer know how you feel. RickiRick turns the tables on Brooke by asking her how she feels and that gets her so flummoxed she shuts up and goes backstage. RickiRick takes a bow as everyone applauds, then leaves the stage to finish playing a Tron app on his I-Phone as Tom prepares to announce the next winner.

    In second place, with 2,481 points is…The Dream Catchers! VAgirl79 claps her hands with glee and attempts to say a few words but is cut off by Tom, as he calls for a round of applause for Harold Wheeler and his orchestra. Tom has a tendency to upstage the real person deserving recognition by turning attention to the band. VAgirl frowns at the interruption but gets a few moments to give her thanks before being rushed off-stage so Tom can announce the big winner.

    The team with the most points, and therefore the winner of the Season 16 pool is…Alive & Jivin’! Debb70 smiles broadly and comes forward to accept her commemorative avatar while all of the pro dancers break out in a lively jive. Derek and Mark fight over which one of them gets to hoist Debb70 up on their shoulders and finally they split the difference and both lift her into their arms. It’s a good thing Carrie-Ann had to leave the building or Alive & Jivin’ might have gotten a last minute penalty for an illegal lift!

    Congratulations, Debb70!




    One last award is left and that’s the Wooden Leg Award for coming in dead last in the pool. Ilja’s Grinnin @er Pickins made no secret that she had her eye on that award and sure enough she wins it, coming in a full 119 points below the next-to-last-place team, Irish Eyes Are Smilin’. Ilja whoops like she’s at a hootenanny and eagerly rushes forward to claim the booby prize. She gets an avatar that’s just as pretty as the first place winner’s avatar so who cares what the final scores are?

    This one’s for you, Ilja! Better luck next time…or not, if you want to go for last place again.




    I hope everyone enjoyed participating in the pool! Final scores and rankings are below.

    If you liked playing and want to try your luck again, the next pools will be for So You Think You Can Dance and MasterChef. And of course we’ll have a pool for the next season
    of Dancing With the Stars.

    Re: Dancing With the Stars 16 Pool

    It was a lot of fun playing with everyone this season because we had so many pool teams, so many great contestants to choose from, and many people new to the pool. I'm sad to have to hand off my trophy from the DWTS All-Stars pool but it goes to a deserving winner and maybe I can win it back in a future season!

    I forgot to congratulate everyone who chose Kellie & Derek as your team captains. You chose well!

    Re: Dancing With the Stars 16 Pool

    Congratulations to all of you who played this season! It was a tight contest for sure. I'm sort of sad it's over.

    Thank you all for such a fun time this season in the Pool. There were so many great dancers this time around. There was a fair amount of controversey, but I think all the finalists were certainly potential winners.

    THANK YOU PIKACHU for all your hard work. I, honestly, do not know how you do it. You are truly gifted. We realize this takes valuable time. We know how much you do and really appreciate it. I LOVE the narrative of the ceremony upthread. I laughed the most when it talked about putting me up on Jacoby's shoulders. OH MY............that would be a pretty picture! lol

    I did think it was funny that my super couple danced the Jive in the instant dance and I had picked Alive & Jivin' as my team name! Loved it.

    I picked Kellie and Dereck as my super couple because Kellie is from NC, my homestate. I didn't know she was so talented. I did know she was a sweet person and doesn't take herself too seriously. I think she represented NC quite well.

    I was also impressed with many of the other contestants. Some of them, like Dorothy, left too early, unfortunately. I was impressed with many of the contestants this season and it seemed like they really all pulled for each other. It felt as if they really liked each other. I think it added to the joy of their dances.

    I'll carry the trophy until next season's winner of the pool takes it. lol

    Awww, I wish I could take credit from everything but I was inspired by other pools I've been in, run by people whose graphics/computer skills were far beyond mine. I'm glad I could pass on some of the joy of playing in pools to the people of this forum and with every one I run, I hope to get a little better at it and keep ironing out the minor glitches that occur along the way.
