Conrad Green said they're encouraged to disagree with the judges and cause a stink, but no one really ever has, except Tony and Maks (that I can recall). I've heard on Strictly it gets pretty nasty at times with the back and forth. I think that's what our show would love. It's a win for them, and why CA and her inexperience isn't going anywhere. I watched a paso performed on Strictly a couple of weeks ago, that had lifts, and nothing was said. If they ever did that here, CA has to call it out, otherwise it shows it was pointless to ever make it her crusade and that she really doesn't know what she's talking about. Brandy probably won't see a 10 from her now, and if Maks returns next season (which I'm doubting unless the producers make changes-and I wouldn't be surprised if they do), he'll probably have an uphill battle with CA, unless he gets some hip hop fly girl type. Maks has been down on this season, but the vibe from all the pros, even mugging, hammy Derek, has me thinking they're ready. None of them, and even the celebs (except maybe Kyle/Lacey) seem excited. Well, Jennifer, too, I guess.
I think Maks will have another season where the mirrorball slips away. CA was tacky for saying there were people better than Kurt (Bruno to) and then giving Bristol scores 1 point less or equal to his insta-dance.
Speaking of that, it wasn't a disaster like I was expecting. I bet it'll be back next season, but I think it's pointless.
