    Dang. I like her, but I can't stand him. And if an Olympian is going to go far this season, I'd prefer it to be Dorothy Hamill. Besides, we just had a season with a perky little gymnast in the finals.

    I'm actually super surprised to read the dislike for Mark and Derek. Those two dancers are my favorite male pros. I know a few other people who like Mark and Derek the best as well!
    They are both so talented and have great choreography. Derek especially is so innovative!

    I think a lot of people dislike Mark more than they dislike Derek. People acknowledge Derek's talent, but maybe resent his repeated successes and his luck getting really good partners. I don't feel this way myself, I'm happy watching Derek because he's twice the choreographer of anyone else there, and he doesn't forget to make his partners look good too.

    But Mark just gets on my last nerve. He choreographs around his partners instead of for them. He constantly introduces contemporary, mime and breakdancing inappropriately into his routines. He gives himself flattering solos while his partners stand around waving their arms. And his new look with the shaved head and scriffy face makes him look like a junior thug. He comes off as a real jerk sometimes.

    Mark is more disliked on this forum than others. But he can dance, he was very good to a friend of ours that is very ill. They saw him in Vegas, and without too much detail, he went out of his way to make sure she was happy - very happy

    Anyway, Aly and Mark should do well

    I like his hair, now its no longer shaved

    If it's true that the pros pick the costumes, then someone needs to take over that duty from Mark. What were they thinking putting all that huge fringe on the front of her dress? It made her look like a fire hydrant.

    I want to root for her but, you know.....Mark

    I've mellowed a bit towards Mark - I don't know if it's because he has hair again or what. I thought he did well this first dance, but I thought Aly was going to pop out of the top of her costume.

    I have never minded Mark at all and think he is great at both choreograph and dancing. I do like his hair longer, rather than the short hair he has had, and agree he did well his first week with Aly. I thought she was a bit stiff, but it could be nerves and I agree with all about her costume - definitely the wrong choice.
