I second that . ABC has always hyped up their other shows by having the cast members sit within camera range, often looking on with bored smile, in the audience. Gilles is on Brothers/Sisters, can't they at least make him come every week? Frankly, I could care less if he dances. I said before, just keep the camera on him for 2 hours...Originally Posted by Wind Dancer;3750290;
Donny Osmond is an entertaiment legend. A lot more people will know of him and his family long after they're gone from this Earth. I'm sure the show was happy to have him aboard, especially in a season with no star power. I'll give you this, the entire Melissa Rycroft army of fans last year has nothing on your obsession with Mark. Either that, or you just like to get people going by slamming everyone else.This is exactly why the show railroaded Mark. He never got the credit for the Paso Doble that he should have, and the Jitterbug, they won't even let him do it for the finale. I know exactly why. It was so good, that it's going to show up anything the stiff old man or the lead foot or the bimbo can do. Funny how no one was bored with that Jitterbug. It should have been the clear winner week 6, but was tied with Krupa's waltz mess.
And yes, Donny Osmond had to pay somebody to be on the show, for sure. The guy is a terrible dancer.
And if anyone got railroaded this season, I'd say it was Natalie.
Donny and Kelly are very recognizable names. Derek is really the most popular pro and by far a fantastic choreographer. I doubt the show would be entirely happy if they had a finale of Mark, Debi, and Chuck. I'm going to enjoy the finale, hoping for Donny/Kym to win, though I'm still betting on Mya/Dmitry. But I have 2 favorites going into next week, with likely Kelly going home, but I'll enjoy Donny/Kym when they make it to the finals. Of course, I'm still hoping for a shocker next week and either Mya or Joanna going home.
