What you've posted above is EXACTLY the type of crap I referred to in the "What Would You Like to See Changed on the Show" thread.
Another example: Remember when Lacey came on, talking about how she was "The Rebel of the Ballroom" and was going to take ballroom dancing into another dimension, or words to that effect? Remember how every time she did a ballroom routine that was even a little bit out of the ballroom box, they called her out for it during critiques? And remember when Steve-O got hurt when he landed on his mic pack during a dance that she'd choreographed a standing flip for him to do? What happened I think was that he over-rotated in mid air. He smashed onto the floor, on top of the pack, and wound up having to be taken to the hospital for that. Matter of fact, I don't even think he was able to dance the next week (I could be wrong about THAT, but if I am, all corrections are gratefully accepted).
During critique, CA TORE. LACEY. A. NEW. ONE. I mean, she lit Lacey's ass up like a Christmas tree. I still remember that, to this day. Bottom line, among the other things CA said, she basically accused Lacey of sending Steve to the hospital, since she was trying to be the "Rebel of the Ballroom", and told her, essentially, that there was no place in traditional ballroom for what she was trying to do.
I don't recall Lacey moving very much far away from traditional ballroom choreography at ALL during the course of the show, after that (of course, I'm not taking Freestyle into consideration).
Yet, Mark's been pulling much the same kind of mess EVER SINCE HE CAME ON, and frankly, I don't recall him being called out even ONCE for it.
No, they're not going to start now.
Kinda makes one wonder what deals might've been struck behind the scenes, or what money might've changed hands under the tabletop, don't it?
That's the only logical explanation for the kind of disparity in letting certain ones get away with murder, that they show.
TPTB COULD address this and issue an explanation for it happening.
But we ALL know that AIN'T gonna happen.
Not in THIS lifetime, or any other.
