Since this is the thread for the results show from this past week, I'll use that specifically as an example about my comments on Lacey being snippy and non-supportive. In the confessionals and after they got their scores, she just acted plain rude, IMO. She's coming across to me as annoyed and put-out, like Mark just irritates her. At least the way they edit it, I do not see her as being encouraging or supportive. Yes, it was only a one point improvement this week, but it was an improvement. She could be blunt with Lance, but I still never recall her acting this way with him or Steve-O. As another example, the two-step she choreographed came across to me, again just IMO, as her showboating her own self instead of focusing on choreographing it to suit her partner. Anna D.'s choreography was a disaster in its own right, but I think that seems to deal more with not being an experienced (or good?) teacher than it is for her promoting herself in the dances.
I still believe he could have done better with another partner. Win? Very doubtful, but he could have done better.
FWIW, I also don't particularly care for Cheryl and her attitude trips either that she has from time to time. Never like the pros being rude to the celebs, which is one reason why I'm not the biggest fan of Maks either.
