I like Chaz. He's a good guy, who hopefully is touching a lot of people with his story and spirit, and hopefully proved his point (whatever it was). I think he's lost weight, and Chaz probably has the means to continue any weight loss regime he wants. He's also brought out a softer, more nurturing side of Lacey that I hope sticks around. I can tolerate this Lacey.
All that being said...we got to see Cher, and she apparently tweeted she may be back since people put Chaz through. I have a hard time believing that Cher being in the audience is what's keeping him here, but really? He should have gone week 2. I admire him for giving this a go, but now it's his time to go. It's worse that he's being overscored and overpraised by the judges. I don't know if saying this was his best dance was much of a compliment. Len was knocking Hope, Carson, and David, and CA cried over Chaz but totally robbed J.R. People see right through it. Carson may not be the best dancer, and he may not be finals material, but at least he's entertaining. Chaz, unfortuantely, doesn't have that going for him. I hope next week is his last week, before it starts getting ugly. However, I'm confident that either him or Nancy (god forbid Rob), will find themselves in the finals. It's usually how it works.
The team dances will be coming up in a couple of weeks, if they're doing them. If Rob, Nancy, and Chaz are all still here, they should put them on a team together. Though I'm thinking Rob will wind up on the winning team and benefit, but it's going to show just how weak those 3 are.
