    Antonio is my frontrunner. It was obvious how hard he worked to perform a very difficult routine and it looked as it he had more individula content and less cover content from the professionals than most. Doesn't hurt that he's totally gorgeous either.

    Stacey Dash surprised me, too. Compare what she did with three craced ribs to Blu who did nothing at all but complain and moan. Stacey is also over 40 years old and is three years older than Rachel Hunter, something else that surprised me.

    I was impressed with Chris Knight, too. That balance bar is very heavy and he carried it with a broken arm and a girl perched on his shoulders. Walking the wire blindfolded is certainly not easy. I don't know how well he'll be able to handle some of the other acts; a broken arm takes time to heal.

    Janet Evan's abilities didn't really surprise me, but I was happy to see her do well, too.

    I found myself really liking Wee Man. His personality and determination were praiseworthy. I think his size may prove to limit what he can do, but you never know. I hope he stays around for a while.
    She looks mighty fine I thought she was in her 20's.

    It actually wasn't nearly as bad as I assumed it would be.

    Not that most of these people are "stars", but I suppose the definition of "celebrity" IS a bit looser than "star" these days.

    FatOne was predictably over the top, but I guess the Ringmaster role required it. The judges are a real trio of walking talking stereotypes. But the actual difficultly of the acts, and the final look of them, is actually pretty entertaining.

    I forget: Did the judges feature a random female, a random male, and a british guy?

    No, they were broader cliches, not specifically "reality show judge cliches" (although yes, there were two guys and one woman).

    First we had the gay guy. A super-over-the-top one, who not only had the mannerisms and the lisp, but also (on air) made lascivious comments about wanting to have sex with all of the male celebrities, while referring to the ladies as "home girls" and stuff like that.

    Second, we had a circus specific cliche--the female French trapeze artist, desperately trying to hold onto her youth with tons of cosmetics, calling everyone "darleeng" and "cherie", and (I'm just betting) chain-smoking during every break.

    Third, we had some gymnast guy, who actually didn't seem to fit that well, but well... seemed like every other gymnast guy who's taken some kind of talking-head role after his retirement.

    In terms of the scoring though, the French lady was kind of the Simon. Or maybe if we base this on DWTS, the Len Goodman. Usually she was a point lower in scoring than the other two. The gay guy kind of scored like Bruno, from DWTS. He'd get really enthusiastic about someone and score high, but it seems like he can also turn on a dime and toss out a really low score just because he's feeling pissy.

    I agree with a lot of what you say, Krom, but I would never refer to Mitch Gaylord as "some gymnast guy." He led the American team to the gold medal win in 1984, he was the first American to ever score a perfect 10 in the olympics, and he invented moves on the highbar that are still being done today; i.e., the Gaylord Flip and the Gaylord Flip 2.

    Yes, he's done a little movie and tv acting, but that's not why I remember and admire him.

    Being old enough to remember what an amazing gymnast Mitch was, I chuckled at the "some gymnast" line, too. But he does seem a bit out of place as a judge. I guess he knows what it takes to work an apparatus, but still....

    I've gotta say that Mitch has not aged well, and he looks like he's giving Bruce Jenner a run for his money on the plastic surgery front.

    Now, I do not agree with that. He looks quite good. Bruce Jenner on the other hand is totally unrecognizable as the Olympic Athletic he once was.

    I think Mitch looks pretty good at 47 and I'd sure buy his fitness DVD's over Jackie Warner's.

    Re: Celebrity Circus

    This show actually continues to be oddly compelling. Although suffering through the increasingly inane Deal or No Deal to get to it is NOT fun.

    I actually think the first week performances were better overall, and I'm REALLY puzzled why they acted like Stacy Dash hit it out of the park this week when what I saw was SERVICEABLE but not spectacular, but... whatever. I had a bowl of popcorn ready (no cotton candy around) and enjoyed it.
