    I feel like I am waaaaay overthinking this! lol There are so many ways this thing could go.


    I am leaning towards keeping my same team name though.

    I did as well Debb, it had me replacing someone with Snookie I think she will do okay though.I am leaving mine alone, even though I don't know a couple of the dancers.

    I like to encourage and cheer everybody on more than I want to play, but for whatever it is worth....I've noticed - in retrospect it is mostly right - that the top ones, and almost always the winner, dance very well the first night. I would have to take into account, of course, who has natural ability (if not, all the instruction in the world doesn't help enough to win), who has that likeability factor ( call it charisma/presence), who has a big enough fanbase, and who the judges either take a shine to immediately or are at least warm to and give decently high scores. I would put all of that into the imaginary pot, try to swish it around, and see what comes up.

    Donald had to work to win them, but I think that might be because of all of the previous football winners and high placers. Otherwise, think of most of the winners. So many of them did very, very well the first night. 2nd place usually was a shoo-in for the finals, and sometimes it was not hard to see who the top 3 would be - maybe just the order.

    If I were playing to win , I would try to seriously take these factors into account when I came with my picks. (Mind over heart which in truth may not be as much fun!!!)

    I like that idea**I would put all of that into the imaginary pot, try to swish it around, and see what comes up.**. This is what I did with the survivor pool, didn't take long. I wonder why this pool was so difficult, or had me over-thinking A number of them danced well ( and had room for improvement) on the first night.
    I hope you are in the pool Bloomers I have said this before- you are always very fair with your comments

    You've picked out popular choices that could well have good fan bases. In all honesty and although I am so impressed with her and admire the heck out of her, I don't know about Valerie's stamina. It is going to get so very much more difficult both with the routines and when they have to learn 2 dances or maybe add in a group number as well. Can she hold up, so unfortunately I have to question Valerie. All of the other choices danced well and showed some natural dance ability, got decent or high scores and good to great judges' remarks.
    I don't know about the order( I don't know the contestants well enough w/o researching them some), but I think you have made some excellent choices and have done a good job on your first time out of the chute!

    Ha, ha, ha!



    Whoops! Sorry, couldn't help myself.



    Just teasing you! I'm sure your team will do great. Break a leg! Or is it bad luck to say that to dancers? Shake a leg, then!
