So, next season, I hope we get a cast like this one. No controversial reality stars, tabloid fixtures, politicians or their offspring/mistresses, no ringers. Just a fun, cheesy, bubbly mixture. Except make it less obvious who will be in the finals week 3.
Did Mark really curse when he was called third? I can only imagine his attitude if he got to the final 2 and Hines was announced as the winner.
I would guess Apollo Anton Ohno wasn't exactly a household name for anyone who's not into the Winter Olympics either. It's not like short track speed skating gets a lot of coverage.
Or, for an even more direct comparison, did all that many people outside of Disney viewers, know Kyle Massey last season?
Kirstie and Maks you were such a joy. From day one. But you were up against forces outside of your control. How wonderful it would have been to see you both hold up that mirror ball trophy. How right it would have been to see that.
Mark and Chelsea- you both put so much creativity into this and you made me care about this show. You made me want to watch for all the right reasons. I think it's great you won't compromise or change or give into the hatred and the negative comments based not on your talent but how you are perceived. I loved what you brought to the dance floor and appreciate your willingness to push the boundaries-art forms cannot stay static or they will die. Taking risks and thinking outside of the box are admirable things- I don't always agree with your choices, but I appreciate the effort.

That was me. Had it been Ralph, he would have gotten my votes, or Romeo. I vote for who I like, and while I don't split my votes often anymore so they count, I wouldn't go as far as voting for someone just so another person doesn't win. I'm just glad my votes paid off and Hines won.
Maks really looked crushed. Even more so than when he lost with Mel B, and it wasn't a given he was losing like season 4 with Laila or season 10 with Erin. I think he thought they had a chance. Maybe he knows this will be his last season, at least for now, and wanted the win.
And Mark finishing 3rd? Show how much BS was behind the WTA cha cha and that it really was put in to get him to the finals.
