    If so, I smell a fix coming on.
    If this is the case, this may just be what it takes to finally turn me off of this show. Or me turn it off once & for all, however you care to look at it.

    Shame, I really liked this year's contestant list.
    Yes they are. BUT with the twist of having the "fans" pick the new partners, it will leave DWTS out of allegations that they paired Derek with her like Tilden stated above

    I just have to wonder why these complaints are showing up in Meryl's thread, but not in Charlie's.
    I'm going to say they are showing up here b/c Derek is the "chosen" one and it would have been recognized if they were immediately paired together, hence the twist

    Well, she is probably best-suited of the ladies to deal with Mak's temperament.

    I'm so pleased that she is paired with Maks and not Derek or Mark. Now I can fully support her. Hopefully she does not get the ringer label attached to her too much because that seems to be the kiss of death sometimes.

    AMEN.

    Much as I appreciate Derek and his talent and growth, truth is TRUTH.

    I'd LOVE to see somebody else besides Derek win, this season. And if that somebody else just HAPPENED to be Maks (WHOEVER his partner might be!), well, my lemonade will NOT be flying towards my TV screen if it IS.

    Trust, and BELIEVE.

    I am so happy that Maks will be back! I haven't watched much since he's been gone.

    I love both Meryl and Charlie. Have followed the both of them throughout their ice dancing career. This should prove to be fun to have them competing against each other. Regarding the twist it sounds like no one is really sure how it's going to work. I read that it will only be for one week - much like a Theme Week and then I also heard an interview where America will choose the new pairings. After one week the celeb can stay with the new partner or return to the old one. If that happens all I can say is Yikes!!! Sounds like we won't know for sure how it will work until TPTB tells us exactly how it will work.

    Good luck to both Meryl and Maks.

    I don't like this new twist at all. It takes time to blend a working partnership. As for the bolded, how would that work if one celebrity chose to return to the old partner and another wanted to remain with the new partner and that were the same pro?

    I have no idea Florimel and on the site where I saw all this info the question you have asked is what many were asking. I agree I think this is a horrible idea unless they just have it for one week like a Theme Week. I don't see how it could work any other way. Some are speculating that this is creating buzz for the show and will hopefully bring in more viewers.
