    That is not how the Tea Party works and is an overgeneralization of the Tea Party and its members. Thank you for thinking we are so influential and of such a number that we can determine the outcome of a show. This show allows the fans to vote and Bristol got more votes than Brandy. ABC will need to change the format, if they are of a mind to.

    I didn't get to see the show until today, so will share my comments in a minute. But as for how the voting works:

    Quote Originally Posted by northernviewer;4108264;

    What they do is they add all of the judges' points awarded during the night up, and then divide each couple's score by the total points. That gives each couple a % of the judges' points. Rinse and repeat for the viewer votes. Then add the two percentages together for the final total for each couple.

    Ex.: Three couples are in the finale. Each couple does 2 dances (for example purposes only). Couple 1 gets a total of 40 judges' points. Couple 2 gets a total of 50 points. Couple 3 gets a total of 60 points. Judges gave out 150 points that night, so each score is divided by 150. So, Couple 1 got 26.7% of the judges' points, Couple 2 got 33.3%, and Couple 3 got 40%. Couples 1 and 2 have to make up the % difference based on fan vote %.

    All of that is why I find it so hilarious Bruno and other judges like to whine and nag the public about the importance of voting, when they are the ones who nitpick dancers like Audrina or underscore some and overscore others. Bruno had no room to talk last night. He gave out 18 total points to Bristol and 19 to Brandy. If there was such a big difference between them, score them as such, man. Sheesh.

    The first season the math formula was different, and rank was involved. It's been so long though, that I can't remember exactly how they did that.

    There is NO way that girl deserves to be in the finals - no way. She has not improved enough to warrant it. Just last week she walked through one of her dances. No one can say with a straight face that she deserves to be here more than Brandy, more than Kurt, or Rick. What a farce..............

    No vote for Bristol says she deserves to be there more than each individual person you listed. It just says that voter thinks Bristol deserves to stay. It is up to the others fans to keep their person. There should be some way to express peoples outrage about the voting rules without running down other peoples choices. Especially the teabagger word. Any way I just added this to your quote to say I love that picture of Reid. At least we can agree on something.

    I loved Tom's response to this on his twitter; he said imagine what would have happened had the guy snapped after the result on Tuesday? Bristol apparently offered to buy him a new TV. I think it's taking it too far, but find it funny in the mean time.
