    Gabby Douglas was thrilled to see her on this show, Aly has wanted to do DWTS for awhile.

    Aly is surprisingly timid, nothing wows me about these two ( yet) . I think Mark should go back to being Mark.

    I agree Fanny! I see the potential, but it's just not quite there!

    I thought last night's outfit made her look really wide. She actually looked heavy and judging from the rehearsal footage, she is muscular but not heavy.

    Maybe I should watch in HD next week.

    I don't know why it is, but I'm kind of "ho-hum" about Aly. I just don't get much sense of personality from her. Probably because she's young? And, someone needs to take a long hard look at the costumes they are putting her in - not attractive.

    That is why Mark was trying to loosen her facial muscles. As a gymnast she has to be so serious, using only her "podium" smile, so I was delighted to see her show a genuine smile during the dance.

    Maybe... it just seems like her confessionals sound so rehearsed, almost like she's using a teleprompter.

    Yes!! you are right. She does have the podium smile .I recall Derek had trouble with Shawn at one point.
    Aly does have a great smile. I think she will loosen up a little more if she is still in it
