    Another Wikipedia update on the couples. They now report the following landscape:

    Couple Dance Style Chosen Professional/Troupe Member
    Melissa & Maks Samba Val Chmerkovskiy
    Donald & Peta Jive Karina Smirnoff
    William & Cheryl Paso Doble Sharna Burgess
    Katherine & Mark Cha-Cha-Cha Tristan MacManus
    Roshon & Chelsie Paso Doble Emma Slater
    Maria & Derek Samba Henry Byalikov

    William in this video clearly said he has a MALE PRO completing the trio so Wikipedia is wrong about Sharna Burgess dancing with them.

    Re: DWTS Media Thread

    According to DWTSGossip, the trios are:

    Donald/Peta/Karina
    Roshan/Chelsie/Sasha
    William/Cheryl/Tony
    Katherine/Mark/Tristan
    Maria/Derek/Henry
    Melissa/Maks/Val

    Disappointed about the two troupe members, but maybe this will tell me if it's me or if those 2 really do mug and hog the camera during the dances. I am sort of surprised that any of the couples would pick someone from the troupe, or that the show would even have that option on the table. Which is why I think this also counts as an audition round for those two. Hopefully it fails.

    Donald is dancing first, and William last tomorrow night. Now, I know William went third last week. But what's the deal with always saving him until last? We already know how the judges and audience will react, so that's not a huge surprise.

Maria has god knows how many injuries, and who knows what her final tally will be. Melissa got a concussion and now Katherine. Maks hurt his foot and had a shoulder/groin the week Melissa got hurt. It makes me wonder if some celebs, especially athletes that are still working/competing would consider it worth it coming on the show. Look what happened to Misty May Treanor.

    Oh I would just LOVE to see a Tom tweet that says there is a shocking elimination tonight & watch old Spatz flip his lid!

    Mike Greenberg has campaigned to get on the show before. Maybe it'll finally happen. I wonder if he'd be on the Kenny Maybe scale of ESPN personalities or the Erin Andrews. I don't think having to dance with Anna is such a bad prize for losing a bet.

    Nothing from Tom yet, though if he said something about a shocker, it could always be regarding Roshon. Which wouldn't exactly be any sort of a surprise, but given his high scores last night (second on the leaderboard?) they'd likely play it off as a surprise. Considering the poor kid has spent more time in the bottom 2 than any other couple, I'd be more surprised if he made it. I'm still going with Melissa/Roshon, or Melissa/Maria. But I'd love nothing more than to see Mark get the boot. Katherine does nothing for me, so I wouldn't even notice she was gone.
