It seems that this season is top heavy with athletes.
Lots of folks have been wanting to see Brook go as co-host and hated the band. It took 18 seasons or so but I guess the producers finally figured out what the fans wanted. The show has been on since 2005, 9 years, that is a great run in show business and Brook has been host since season 10 or Spring 2010 ... a 4 year run.
I liked that they went to one night per week last season and it seems they are keeping that.
I don't think I mind the mid-season switching of partners but I think it would have been more exciting if if was a random pick a button from a bag procedure instead of fans voting for it because as it is it will be a bloody fight between Maks and Derek fans. I wonder if the network and or producers have found a way to make money by doing the voting that way. Bet you the system will crash at least once with all the "rabid" fans voting.
I wonder if someone will try to get a all girl team or all guy team voted in? Now that would be interesting.
I thought at first boy do they want Maks to win by giving Derek a partner with no legs. Then I looker her up ... it might not be that bad a choice.
