I think Maks was leaving, so they gave him a ringer and half, so he would go out on top.. He said it was very hard work to keep that up with a ringer, far harder than he thought. Hats off to Derick for those thinking its so easy. I thought he did dial it it in when they swapped partners, and the girl even said she didnt care for the way the brothers talked to them..( I forgot her name)
If Maks was judge #4 there would be little to no concern. Julianne doesn't favour Derick anymore than Maks would favour Val , although he did say next Val deserves one. I am okay with them all. I watch the pros ,the dancers not the judges.
Julianne was right when she said you need to step out of marks shadow( something like that), we all know how he is. They went for supper that night, so no hard feelings that lingered I guess. The pretend judges, especially CA don't give any real critique except* you look great with your shirt off .* .that's not judging
I will watch this season with interest. I am watching Big Brother UK, and one of the guys is THEIR bad boy of ballroom( they all have them) he speaks back to the judges, rolls his eyes, sound familiar? LOL
