    From what I've read, each celeb is paid differently. And unfortunately, (though this is yet to be confirmed...) it doesn't necessarily go to charity.

    Wonder why each celeb is paid differently??? What determines it?

    Poor Ashley. She was so emotional. Unfortunately she got stuck with someone that is as popular as others.

    When the pros are dancing with pros, they can do all the lifts they want. The rule is no lifts with the celebrities during the judging. It's been the rule starting with season 2 (because of some flak they got from season 1, I think).

    I don't think I'll be buying any of their CD's :-)
    Those Scissor Sisters they can keep, but the tenor and choir were awesome. I've always loved that song.

    If they are paid $25k per week, that should stop when they are eliminated. That would explain the different amounts. Someone like Jerry who must be worth a fortune can afford to turn his pay check (chump change to him) over to a charity, but I've never heard of Willa so she probably needs the money. ABC should give a large separate amount to the winner's charity.

    The judges should have set criteria based on what the dance should be while making allowances for the non-professionals lack of ability. They make it too subjective and their personal bias is quick to take over when they should be objective. Manipulating their scores to compensate for expected audience votes is just wrong and makes them worthless.

    Sorry, but what difference does it make if it goes to charity? This is a gig for them. Jennifer Aniston didn't give her Friends salary each week to charity. Right now Dancing With the Stars is how a lot of these guys are making their living. They should be entitled to do with it as they please.

    What I would propose is a prize at the end that would be donated to the charity of the winners' choice. That's how they did Celebrity Duets. They paid the celebrities per appearance, but in the end, they got a prize for charity if they won. To me, that's a good balance.
