Some are speculating that this is creating buzz for the show and will hopefully bring in more viewers.
    I read where even the pros don't like it..did you see that? I suspect its for one week and means very little .The voting would be too confusing imho

    I did see that and I agree it has to be for one week only. The voting, hurt feelings, loss of a building partnership, etc. So many reasons why it wouldn't work.

    But being a "ringer" hasn't hurt either...ahemm...cough...choke ... Nicole, Melissa, Shawn.

    The really scary part is what the hair and make up people will do with her.

    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.
    Just as an FYI, Derek helped them choreograph their short dance to a medley from My Fair Lady. The required rhythms for that this year included Foxtrot and Quickstep (or Finn Step), which is why they went to a ballroom dancer for that. Their free skate was actually choreographed by their long time coach/choreographer Marina Zoueva. Meryl also went to a middle-eastern dancer for help with her character in that dance, just as they both sought out the help of traditional Indian dancers for their Bollywood Original Dance in 2010. It's actually not uncommon for ice dancers to go to dancers of whatever type of dance they're trying to translate to the ice for help in doing that.

    Not that any of that makes a difference in terms of the rest of your post, but I keep reading here and elsewhere about Derek choreographing for them, and while he did do that, there seems to be some confusion about what he actually did for them among people who watch skating casually, as opposed to those who follow the sport fairly closely. That's understandable, because the general media does a terrible job of covering skating and always has.

    There is a very cute video on another forum of them rehearsing. She is so tiny, but very sweet. She is also a very good dancer, Maks looks happy

    Thanks for the hint. I found the video. It does look like they are getting along well. I love Mak's "I think we can work with that". I never heard him say that before.

    Yes she is tiny! I was really surprised the first time I met her in person. She didn't look that small to me when I saw her on the TV performing. What really surprised me is how friendly she is. When I first met her she initiated the conversation and talked to me for 10 min.
