I haven't watched the show since Maks blew up. I was as fed up with those three stooges as everyone else. I was happy to see Maks/Hope survive. Hope certainly has better dance skills than she is given credit for. When you are constantly told you stink (since week one) you tend to believe it. I think her dancing is more to do with "I'm never going to be able to please them" than her not being able to do it. If she wasn't a target from week one we may have seen a different Hope at this point in the game.
I can't say I'll watch the show again unless they change judges. No one likes to hear anyone get ripped apart. Just like Kelly Osbourne knew going into the finals she was never going to place higher than third. It's not surprising that they had to give D-Listers a call and still call it Dancing with the Stars. After the blatant scoring of yesterday, what celebrity in their right mind would agree to go on this show. They've really jumped the shark this season. And please someone put Brooke out of her misery.
It was a fun show for a few seasons (early season at that) but now it isn't just a popularity contest but a popularity contest of the judges favorites from day one.
