I like the theme even less the way it's outlined in the press release. Most memorable year? So now they have to choose their most memorable year and suit the experiences of an entire year to a dance style they didn't pick. That sounds darn near impossible. If they had to have a "theme" (and they don't, not really) why not just have them choose a memorable event--whether it's the most memorable or not--that suits the type of dance they've been given.
Movie theme night is at least a little less demanding. There's a lot of movie music out there, so they can probably find something that suits the dance style they're assigned, and at least it doesn't have to tell a story, other than, perhaps, the one of the movie. Hope Carson makes it to movie week, because I'd love to see which film he and Anna choose.
Maybe Rob is referring to past season contestants???
If he is referring to this season specifically, the only married people on the show that seem reasonable options (as said in the video) are Chynna and Tony. This would surprise me a bit because Tony seems like a true family-man (I don't know much about Chyna). On the other hand, they are a great match and seem to have wonderful chemistry, and I wouldn't be surprised. At this point in the game, I hope they win. I would love to see a middle-aged woman take this thing.
My other favs at this time: Carson, David, Nancy G, and Rob.
Tilden, completely agree with both your posts above. I absolutely loved classical week alst season, and was hoping that'd become a regular fixture. Instead, we're going to get stories fo war and child birth. At least Hope's might make sense. Maks said in his blog they're dancing to the song the US women's team used to listen to in the locker room to get pumped up for the World Cup. So her's might be a memorable year and fit the cha cha. I just hate the variety of dance styles. 5 have the rumba, and everyone else has something different. Why? The 3 stooges can barely judge as it is, but why not have something for the others to compare to? I don't know how movie scores week will go. They've already done a theme song week to the movies. I just wish they'd have 2 styles every week, until week 6 when they start repeating the styles. I wonder if they do this to make sure they can give those they want to stick around easier dance styles.

Partial order and song listing for tonight:
1st: Rob/Cheryl (Foxtrot)
3rd: Chaz/Lacey (Rumba)
4th: Kristin/Mark (Samba)
6th: J.R./Karina (Rumba)
Chynna is dancing her rumba to Hold On (the Wilson Phillips hit), Hope the cha cha to Fireworks, and Nancy the VW to Moon River. I think I read that J.R.'s rumba was going to be revolve around the military.
Side note, but I was reading at Pure DWTS statistics on the dances, which dances should be saved for last, and they mentioned that while the foxtrot and paso are two of the easier dances to learn, they depend mostly on whether they can please the crowd and get into character. They pointed out that typically a couple who had either of those respective dances were often the ones who got voted off that week (I do know some pasos have done people in). An omen that we might be without a Kardashian next week?
I'm glad if there's any rumbas about child birth I can be warned in advance. I hope Hope/Maks go later in the competition, because going early can sometimes lowball your score. I wouldn't be surprised if we see 9s or even a 10 tonight.
And yes, I do think the not-so-chosen-one except when Derek isn't around will probably be pulling a solo samba with Kristin as a backup dancer.
