The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
My comment wasn't meant as a diss on Melissa. I meant it more that Maks is my favorite 9EYE0 candy just minus the calories!
Some people dream of having a big swimming pool - with me it's closets."
Ask me to show you poetry in motion, and I will show you a horse.
I'm so glad Maks is around for another week and didn't land in the dance off (Melissa too ) I'm also glad they were announced safe first so I could watch the show with ease. Up against Gavin, I have no doubt Melissa would have lasted. Jaleel? It's hard to say. Gavin only practiced for an hour, whereas I bet Melissa would have been more polished. I'm really excited for their VW next week. Maks has choreographed some of my favorites (loved his and Mel's with the splits, and his blindfold waltz with Erin). This is the first slow paced, elegant, flowy dance for Melissa. I think it'll be a good fit and change for her.
Talk of wanting a woman to win this time. Why not Melissa? I really needn't have asked that though Especially because Maks is not a judge favorite. Scoring is so obviously lopsided toward their favorites. She is improving, and Maks is great to watch. It would be an interesting upset. What really turns me off, is Katherine and Maria are the only ones mentioned to take the win for the gals. That means their privileged partners will be smuggly strutting their stuff with the trophy "again". Another reason to switch the channel.
I'd love to see Maks finally win one of these seasons. I think the only way he, Tony, Val, Chelsie, or Anna will ever take the trophy is for them to get lucky and get a partner like Gilles or J.R. that wasn't expected to become a fan favorite. And I know Gilles didn't win, but I like to pretend I'd love for Melissa to keep sticking around though, just because I know it'll bug the 3 stooges on the panel. Or at least two of them. However, I'm also sticking with my prediction that she'll be out in the next couple of weeks, along with Gladys, and possibly Roshon (who I think they're selling too hard) and Jaleel (again, trying to sell too hard).
Anna and Maks both had partners with legitimate shots at winning when they were paired with Evan and Erin respectively--and we all know what happened that season. DWTS still made sure they lost by casting the ring-dingiest ringer of all time and pairing her with you-know-who.
Any other season, Evan or Erin would have been significant contenders if not winners. But not when the deck was stacked against them from day one. Not when the judges were announcing the winner--literally--before the contest was even over.
