And I will add that Tom and Brooke constantly remind viewers to VOTE FOR THEIR FAVORITES. :up
They NEVER say - vote for the best dancer. ;)
What about the first season? I can't think of who did win (in terms of the pro) that season, but I'm certain it couldn't have been Mark or Derek, because they weren't on the show yet. Even if you count the second dance off winner as the winner of season one, I know John's partner was more his age and was definitely not Cheryl, Julianne, or Kym.
Or were you just thinking of pros currently on the show?
The best part of the show last night (for me) was Josh Groban. I've enjoyed watching Maks and Kirstie they have been amazing. Maks is one of the best Choreographers on the show. I have started getting more and more bored with Bruno and C, when B starts his spill I mute him out. I would like to see more fairness with the judges their pushing ringers is too predictable and boring. Tired of the same pros getting the best celebrity partners. It's a pretty sure bet Tony will get a loser, it just gets old seeing this every year. As for Mark, I can't stand watching him outshine his partner every year. I get so caught up in watching his face I miss what his partner is doing. I wonder how the guy dances with all those mouth movements. I don't like him because he is a boring dancer that neglects his partner and makes outlandish moves so all the attention is on him. Derek also gets the best dancers but he at least tries to make it about his partner. Derek is also a great dancer and entertaining to watch. Mark is a bore his dancing skills are questionable.
(BTW, Jericho's interpretation of Bruno IMHO was deserving of the lone "10" he got from Carrie Ann for it :rofl ).
Language barrier? - I'm sorry that's an excuse Bruno. You have been here for 12 seasons and I'm sure you'd been told by now that the reference and HOW you said it is improper. You could've also used "kitty" or "pussyCAT" (which BTW I see quite common because common sense folk know if they use it they should just use the cat with it or it'd be sniggers) and you'd been fine. Just using it as you did you knew what you were saying.Quote:
They can turn it around that the couple stepped over the line and the judge was justified in calling them out for being a sore loser. I saw an interview with Bruno on EXTRA where he said it was caused by a 'language barrier' and that they more or less needed to suck it up and deal with it. I think the producers made another glaring omission by trying to pretend it didn't happen. It makes them look bad they have an over sex up, loose lipped judge. And the couples, 99% of the time, take it like pros and don't utter a peep. You know if Karina and Ralph battled it out with the judges they would have showed it over and over again, just like they did with Maks and CA last season.
I think that Ralph and Karina did the right thing actually - by NOT saying anything they were making the statement that what Bruno said was wrong and the producers are doing nothing about it.
I do wish they did their free though, although I loved the quickstep they danced. It showed enough to producers they were WRONG IMHO to use the WTA dance. That dance could've been pulled.
I loved this too, and I would presume the Go Gos are currently just doing a reunion type tour. Many bands from that era tend to do a reunion tour once in a while. Even the Monkees - sans Mike Nesmith - are doing a tour.Quote:
I did love DAD and seeing Maks and Chelsie win it for the first time. That was a good performance. Are the Go Gos reuniting or was this just an anniversary of their album appearance?
I can see Maks taking off at least a season to be with family, and I would hope he does so unless he's offered a ringer for once so he can win. Since that's most unlikely to happen, I want him to rest so he can blow everyone away with his dances even more than he did this season with Kirstie.Quote:
One more regarding Maks and whether or not he'll return next season; it used to be the 'will she or won't she' with Julianne after she left the show after season 8 but said she'll be back. No even tries to guess, we all know she's probably done. Now it seems Maks's attitude and actions have turned into will he or won't he. I know Maks said last season he was physically, mentally, and emotionally drained before the season started. He made it all the way to the finals during season 10 and never slowed down afterwards. Season 11 was really a hard season for him, dealing with Brandy, the negativity, the battle with CA, losing his grandmother, the gimmicks and stunt cast like with CA...he was done. I was honestly surprise he returned this season. I wonder if it was the last on his contract and he decided to finish it out in case he wanted to be done for good. Then after last season, he went and filmed The Bachelor, and that pretty much right up to the start of this season. So he hasn't had a break in a long time. If he did find love on TB, I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to get all that figured out and try and spend quality time with her and his family. DWTS does take up a lot of time. I will miss Maks greatly if he doesn't return :( So we could potentially be out Maks, Karina, and (hopefully) Mark next season. Derek, too, if he doesn't return, though I have a feeling he will. I really hope we get to see a pro win next time that never has. Seeing the same faces always advance to the winners circle gets old, even though I do adore Kym and think she's earned all her wins. She's amazing.
I'm hoping that next season Maks returns, and that he and Louis get partners that take them to the end. Poor Louis has the hardest time getting his hands on a contender. I really like Louis as well and would like to see him have a great season.
