Chelsea & Mark - nice pairing. They did very well, although I thought it wasn't totally coherent, and the props were distracting.
Wendy & Tony - a whole lot of nothing She didn't show her personality enough, and Tony was dancing around here the entire time.
What the heck is Brooke wearing?
Hines & Kym - I love Kym, she is my fav female pro, but I hate that dress. Speaking of dresses, I miss Edyta! Really wish she were back. OMG, I loved their dance! Hines has great hip action and he's light on his feet. Love his dimples and he seems to have a fun-loving personality. Looks like he will be a good risk-taker.
Petra & Dmitry - very pretty girl, love her smile. Her intro made me cry. Dmitry - yum! I liked their dance - very graceful and elegant and sweet.
Carrie Ann - ugh, she is obnoxious.
Good to see Kyle (Schmurgles) in the audience.
Romeo & Chelsie - Their dance was OK. I think he has potential. Chelsie is a good teacher.
Sugar Ray & Anna - Anna is another of my favs, but her hair and dress are a bit over the top tonight. I like these two, but their dance was mediocre, I thought. I think he can do it, but he needs to work and listen to Anna.
Bruno: "Call me Daphne"
Kendra & Louis - Not sure how I feel about her. I'm not a fan of these Girls Next Door "stars", they kind of ick me out, but she seems like fun and I wasn't offended by her remarks. I liked their dance, thought it was fast and fun.
Ralph & Karina - wow, impressive! Enjoyed their dance a lot. Very smooth, elegant, crowd-pleasing dance.
Chris & Cheryl - that dress is a monstrosity. OK, not the worst dance I've ever seen, but too light on content and too heavy on gimmicks. I think they were overscored.
Mike & Lacey - Lacey's hair is distracting, she needs to go back to brunette. Mike is stiff, but I give him credit for trying.
Kirstie & Maks - love them! She did really well, and I think she'll continue to improve.
Can I say what a relief this season is, after the last few with all the controversial/ringer/gimmicky contestants? I almost swore off this show after last season, but I think I'm really going to enjoy this season.
My top 3 for the evening: Hines, Ralph, and Kirstie.
