Okay, so Hope can't dance very well. She told everyone before the season started, but we didn't want to believe it.
She needs 3 things--technique, musicality, and feelings/emotion, and she has only 1. She is trying really, really hard to develop musicality and feelings, but she doesn't understand that you can't accomplish those by trying really really hard.
The judges are making it more difficult by giving her harsh comments, but they give her generous scores so chill out!
She probably needs to be half drunk to dance well. Or in love with Maks, but that isn't happening.
I think her twitter post, reported above shows the exact problem--she has certain expectations as to how competitions should go and she is unable to accept the fact that this isn't how things works. It reminds me of kids in school that have the best grades and think that once they graduate, they'll be the most successful, only to find out that the kid with the biggest smile, most outgoing personality, or best connections pass them by. It isn't fair, but it is life. This show is the same thing and she has to adjust to the reality of the show, not just complain that it isn't a good way of doing things.
I'd still rather see her dance than Nancy or Bristol 2.0, so I'll keep voting for her. Well, I'm probably just as stuborn as Hope, and since I picked her, I'll vote for her while she lasts.
