You know, come to think about it - watching the eliminated dancers I did get to see dance a new dance, (I didn't see Shannen's dance), I think the ONLY one I truly enjoyed watching again was Buzz because - good, bad or whatnot, he appreciated his experience, was truly humble about it and really seemed to have fun tonight dancing.
I found Niecy and Pam's dances just a rather raunchy, Jake just bores me (though Vienna did look lovely), and Kate... good gravy on burnt tofu... what the hell were they thinking allowing her to do that? (well, save probably getting Tom to finally in all his years hosting any show to truly break his host persona and not be able to control his laughing at the ridiculousness of it).
BTW, in case you're wondering, I did think Erin's free was a little risque last night, but unlike Niecy and Pam's dances she and Maks kept the dance elegant and she didn't rely on shaking everything or crawling over Maks in order to drip sex appeal. Mind you I expected it from Pam, but frankly, I was a little disappointed in Niecy here - I would've loved to have seen her do another quickstep or some sort of fun dance where she was beautiful and elegant as well as a little sexy.
The ONLY dance I missed was seeing Chad dance again - I liked him in most of his dances (and not because of his physique - there was something endearing with watching a football player dance here), and he had fun. Also, while Cheryl can annoy me a bit, but out of the double winners, she's the only one who seems to be levelheaded and remembers the show is also about her partner, not her. Sadly, I think if they do sideline some of the winners, she'd be put in there before Derek, who REALLY I think needs a time out to grow up and remember the show is "Dancing with the Stars of TV, sports and the like," not "Dancing with the Derek Hough."
Come to think of it, I'm not so disappointed Nicole won in as much that Derek did for that reason. She may be a ringer, but she did have fun, and for a skinny gal, sure is strong (the "quickstep" freestyle they did during Hollywood week she picked up Derek in an arm carry for a couple of beats).
