    Re: Judge: Carrie Ann Inaba

    Having never watched this show before, I am unfamiliar with judging. My personal opinion Bruno is annoying and could say a lot less. Len appears to know what is expected from a rules level. Carrie Ann is the judge who brings the highlights vs low lights to the judging of each dance.

    Re: Judge: Carrie Ann Inaba

    Couple corrections in my post - typos - (too late for edit):

    Len was very harsh with singer Mario – it was shameful. Bruno was unnecessarily harsh with Woz, Kenny Mayne, and a few others. Generally speaking, Len and Bruno have been much harsher with male performers than Carrie Ann has ever been with females.

    The reasons that some people are giving as to why they dislike Carrie Ann just are not there. If you don't like her, fine, but I'm just pointing out the reasons for it do not hold up.

So I'm not sure when the scenario you mention occurred. I do agree that she was definitely overscored in general.
    ironcat - I made an effort to focus my post on dislike of CAI and the reasons some people have cited (as opposed to my assessment of specific performances). We disagree about Melissa, and that's fine. However, we do agree that Marissa was overscored in general. My point was that Marissa and Tony, and many of their fans, pointed the finger at Carrie Ann whenever there was any criticism of her/their performance - even though there were criticisms from the other 2 judges.

    ‘Dancing’s’ Carrie Ann Inaba Endures Flight Nightmare | Access Hollywood - Celebrity News, Photos & Videos

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

    “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba and a plane full of passengers aboard Virgin America Flight 404 were scheduled for a direct flight from Los Angeles to New York on Saturday – but bad weather turned the trip into a 16-hour nightmare.

    Severe winds forced the plane to land at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, New York, located 90 miles north of NYC, instead of JFK, where the plane was stranded for four and half hours on the tarmac.
    Carrie Ann Tweeted about the ordeal.

    “Was stuck on a plane for five hours on a Tarmac. They ran out of food, a woman was escorted off by police and I’m grateful to new friends… Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Made some new friends despite the crazy situation,” Carrie Ann wrote following the ordeal. “Can’t help mother nature but to leave people on the Tarmac for 5 hours should not be acceptable. People were panicking and they had no food.”

    Help came in the form of one of Virgin America’s competitor’s, JetBlue, who operates out of Stewart Airport. JetBlue arranged for the passengers to be taken to JFK by bus.

    But Carrie Ann wanted everyone involved in the ordeal to be compensated and she contacted the airline.

    “Great news!!! Just got off the phone w/ the CEO of @virginamerica - he’s going to refund everyone for yesterday’s flight. He apologized,” she Tweeted on Sunday. " Thank you Virgin America for restoring my faith in your care for your customers. Everyone gets refunded!!!! Yay!!!!! Thank you”

    When contacted by Access Hollywood a rep for the airline cleared up reports that the passengers were trapped on the plane, saying, “Water was provided for guests and guests had the ability to leave the aircraft throughout the hold to enter the airport. Several guests (20 of 126) did in fact leave the aircraft.

    The aircraft’s lavs were operable throughout the hold and a total of five additional cases of water were delivered to the aircraft. Food was limited and we did run out onboard at about the 2-hour mark, however guests did have the option to leave the plane and enter the airport.”

    The rep also said passengers would be refunded and credited.
    “Our CEO sent out apology letters to each of the guests on this flight and we refunded everyone for their flight (and provided additional $100 credit files for future travel),” the rep continued.

    The “Dancing” judge said later on Tuesday that she hopes to never have to repeat her weekend travel nightmare but was glad to make the best out of the situation.

    “The Virgin flight 404 was something I hope to never experience again but that being said I do feel that there are elements in life that are beyond our control. No matter who’s fault the ordeal was the lesson I really learned was that social media and networking is a powerful tool and one that can allow our voices to be heard,” Carrie Ann said in a statement to Access. “David Cush, the CEO of Virgin, did the right thing for all the passengers on board. Since we put our lives in the hands of these airlines every day what we want to know is that they care about us in return. I do hope this kind of situation does not happen again and that they have learned from this ordeal and will have better ways of dealing in the future for all customers. Since the ordeal and the tweets, Virgin America has reached out and extended an offer for a full refund to all passengers and am happy that I was able to be a part of the solution.”

    What a spoiled brat. They were inconvenienced for a few hours, had access to water and bathrooms, and had the option to leave the plane. And she writes about it like she was near death, and the airline had to regain her trust? Because of the WEATHER!!??? And then she has the gall to act like a hero because she's a celebrity with a Twitter account, and strong-armed the airline and name-dropped about it afterwards? I could slap her.

    Carrie Ann has a new side-job:
    Carrie Ann Inaba adds game show to TV dance card

    By LYNN ELBER (AP) – 4 hours ago

    LOS ANGELES — Carrie Ann Inaba is adding a game show to her TV dance card.

    The "Dancing With the Stars" judge will host a new version of "1 vs. 100," scheduled to debut next month on the GSN channel.

    "I never would have thought of myself as a game show host, but when I saw the show I fell in love with it," Inaba said Thursday, the first day of production.

    The show has gone high-tech with such elements as web cams, which Inaba said appeals to the "tech savvy" side of her.

    "1 vs. 100" pits one player against a group of 100 people tagged "the Mob." The player's task is to correctly answer a series of multiple-choice trivia question, while mob members do the same thing. At stake is a top prize of $50,000.

    "1 vs. 100," which originally aired on NBC with host Bob Saget, is a change of pace for Inaba. The dancer-choreographer was a Fly Girl on "In Living Color," toured with Madonna and hosts red-carpet coverage for ceremonies that have included the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.

    She'll continue to work on ABC's "Dancing With Stars" on Monday and Tuesday and then tape the game show on the other three weekdays. It's an "incredibly intense" schedule but one she can manage by relaxing at home with her boyfriend and his daughter, and through yoga, Inaba said.

    "And I sleep a lot," she added, laughing.

    Her new GSN game show will air at 7 p.m. EST weekdays starting Nov. 15, the channel said.
    I don't know...hopefully she will speak like an adult, and not babble like a squealing school girl like she does at the judges' desk. Bob Saget was a perfect fit for that show, he will be hard to top.

    Re: Carrie Ann Inaba – Judge

    Looks like CA's been getting called out on twitter more this season. Or else she's speaking out about it. First there was not catching Jennifer's lift, and now she's apparently gotten asked why she doesn't like Maks. The way she keeps hyping this season as being the best ever, I'm wondering if even she believes it.

    Not sure how I see CA as a game show host. I don't think think she's charismatic enough for the job she has now.

    Re: Carrie Ann Inaba – Judge

    I was new to the show last season, and for a few weeks in the beginning, Carrie Ann was my favorite judge. She seemed the most humane of the three. I got over that soon enough! This silly obsession with lifts, the erratic comments, the vaporishness . . . is she going out of her way to copy Paula Abdul, or what? It's really been so long since CA has voiced a comment I can respect. It all sounds like schoolgirl babbling or else schoolgirl sniping to me. The tears over Jennifer Grey's first dance would have been touching last year, but now they seemed . . .fake is not the right word because I'm sure CA felt sincere about them . . .but unprofessional at the least. Judges ought to be a tad more dispassionate, especially that early in the season.

    I'm not familiar with CA's professional work or the venue she came from . . .she's an attractive lady but it seems like it's been quite a while since her perfoming days. Can she or Bruno even duplicate the dances the contestants are doing with perfect form? I doubt it. Does coming from the music video world qualify one to judge ballroom in any sort of meaningful way? CA's commentary is so often up in the ether, I'm not even sure what she's getting at. Frankly, the only judge I can wholly respect is Len. He's often crabby, but I feel like he knows what he's talking about, and, if called upon, could actually dance these steps with the proper form.

    Replacing Regis Philbin with Meredith Viera? (Who Wants To Be A Millionaire)
    Good move.

    Replacing Bob Saget with Carrie-Ann Inaba?
    Not such a good move.

    Those who can't do... judge. Right?

    To be fair, even Len, an ex-ballroom dancer can't do these moves with perfect form. Then again, Len is 134 years old or something like that.

    CA's commentary is so often up in the ether, I'm not even sure what she's getting at.
