I just find it quite interesting that Mark was in the finals with Bristol and will be there with Chelsea due to producer manipulation.
Who are they favouring – the pro or the dancer??
I am through watching this show. I hope ratings go down noticeably for the finale. I will vote nonetheless for whichever of Kirstie or Ralph is left, just for spite. I'm pretty sure that Hines will win (and that's what the judges want, thus the undeserving constant tongue baths) in the end regardless, so I doubt he will need the extra votes, and even though I don't think he's all that much better either, it's preferable to Mark getting anywhere near that trophy again.
I do like Ralph, he's a class act too, but some of his Latin dances were just lacking lustre to me. And as for Bruno, very unprofessional.. I know he likes to try and be funny but downright raunchy is uncalled for. I also don't like when the comments get more of a personal attack than critiqueing technique.
I voted online for Hines. I want him to win.I wont be upset if Chelsea wins, she has worked hard.I am so over Bruno, I think he needs to take a season off.
It seems like most season's I have watched there are always some celebrities that go further due to a big or unique fan base. Marie Osmond, Kirstie Alley, And Bristol Palin come to mind. (I have nothing personal against any of them.)
I think Hines and Kym are a lot of fun to watch. I love Maks but any romantic gestures or discussions regarding him and Kirstie are creepy. I don't know anything about Chelsea other than she reminds me of a young Cameron Diaz. I am on the fence with Ralph, that last dance, with Bruno's innapropriate comment, was pretty cringeworthy. It looked like they were trying to be dirty vs. sensual.
Why all the favoritism comments regarding Mark? I agree that the 15 points were a way to secure who they wanted in the finals. Why do people have the impression he is favored by the judges? He bugs me, so I have never payed much attention to him. I have not watched every season so I really don't understand the favoritism!
Note to ABC though - what Bruno is doing is called Sexual harassment to Karina, and in other professions - no scratch that, even in acting, you do that, you are FIRED. (I've done a little acting, and can vouch this to be true). Condoning this only makes you look worse, and if Karina kept getting treated like this you'd have a lawsuit on your hands. You'd also better let her choose to leave and not force her out for the same reason.
Mark outdances or breaks all the rules using two moves in a cha-cha that are obviously not in that style of dance and is rewarded for it.Quote:
I was also amazed at how many articles about C/M came up when I simply googled DWTS. Those two must have press agents working overtime for them. I was particularly annoyed by one praising them that also criticized Kym for "outdancing" Hines and getting praised for it. I'll admit freely that there was at least one dance where that may have been true, but Mark consistently outdances or over dances all of his partners, so to criticize Kym for doing it in an article praising Mark is ridiculous.
Hell, even Derek was severely penalized (for him anyway) when he and Nicole from the PCD did movements in a quickstep that turned it into a free.
For starters, these people are idiots (and frankly uneducated in pop culture) to think that just because you pose in Playboy you have no right to feel sexually harassed. There are many people who've posed in that who did it for the money and left.Quote:
Oh, and an awful lot of comments following the K/R article made mention of the fact that Karina had posed in Playboy, so she had no right to be offended by Bruno's remarks. Uh, excuse me, but even if she hadn't been offended, it was a very nasty sexist remark referring to a portion of a woman's anatomy. It could, and did, offend women viewers. There have already been a lot of boob jokes this season. Bruno didn't need to go any further. He needs to start offering constructive criticism instead of trying to make his every commentary an excuse for him to leap out of his chair and attempt to be funny. He's not, and it's annoying. If everyone else on the judging panel can remain seated, so can he.
There were also Playboy bunnies in the old clubs they had who didn't even pose in the magazine. If anyone treated the Playboy bunnies in the clubs like Bruno did Karina, they'd had their key taken from them and would be PERMANENTLY banned there.
They're doing what they can to try and kick out Ralph and Karina - that is becoming more and more obvious. It should be Ralph, Hines and Kirstie with any deserving of the trophy.
Rate it's going now, why don't they just save some money and just hand the title to Chelsea and Mark then either NOT do two more episodes, or if they MUST do them, do a recap episode and reunion special next week so all can lash out about the obvious manipulation of the season?
