    I've never been a fan of Penn & Teller. I don't dislike them, just don't find them very amusing. So I don't have much expectation to be entertained by him, but I'll be open minded about it. I love Kym, and it's always nice to see her again, though.

    Kym says challenfes are his height - 6'6" he's as tall as Jason Taylor - and his size 14 feet. He might surprise us, though. He lost 46 lbs before rehearsals started.

    Penn's too damn tall. He'll dance like a doof I bet.

    But I love the guy. In some ways for his "Bullsh@t" show even more than his magic act.

    I hope he surprises me and doesn't go within the first few weeks like I half expect him too. And I want to see Teller sitting in the audience, having Samantha Harris hold up a microphone to him during a Results show, making Harris look even stupider than usual when Teller just shrugs at her. THAT will be hilarious. Maybe Teller can pull some talent out of a hat for Samantha.

    I hope he does well for Kym's sake. She seems like such a sweetheart and I don't want her to leave too early.

    I really don't see Penn as being very graceful and don't expect him to do well though you never can tell. But for those who think height is the obstacle, I will simply mention the almost 6'7" Tommy Tune, which incidentally is his real name.

    This is a disaster on wheels. Poor Kim she got stuck with Jerry, then got a great partner (joey), then she had mark and now him...there already in trouble. Isn't he like 6'6?

    All I can think of is Clyde Drexler just gliding across the floor while his partner did all the work. I think Penn might give a little more effort, but I'm not expecting all that much. But who knows, everything I've read seems like he's pretty determined.

    He moves terribly, but that's not my problem. I love him, I'm a fan, but he's complaining about Kristi. Yes, she's had some choreography before, she was a professional skater. They have consistantly selected celebrities with some dance experience. He knows that. He must have known that. Now, he's calling Kristi a cheater and he's not appearing to be tongue in cheek about it. Man up and deal, Penn. It's not the same thing as skating and it's not professional dance. If you aren't graceful you're going home and it's not because Kristi is better trained. It's because you're not good.

    Definitely has two left feet. Two big left feet at that. But he's enthusiastic. He at least appears extremely excited about being on the show.
