    Yeah, I would like Benji to win because of the spotlight it will bring and because of the other prizes, but I think he's way too big a personality to be Celine's backup dancer. He needs to be front and center, even if it's only for one number in a Broadway show.

    Does he get to decline the Celine D. offer if he wins? I hope so.

The guy doesn't have an ounce of masculinity in his body (in my opinion), and that makes him utterly boring for me. I know I know, Benji has some feminine qualities, but I am not saying that Travis seems girly or gay to me (that wouldn't bother me)... I just get a very young and naive feel from him, whereas Benji seems to have more depth and is therefore more interesting to me.
    Neither of them screams "gay" to me, but I agree, Travis seems like someone's kid brother.

    Benji seems even less "effeminate." I think if his face were less "geeky" nobody would even think of calling him "effeminate." He's too much of a clown to seem really "sexy" in most of his routines, but to me he can pull that off in a romantic partner dance better than Travis does.

    Someone at another site recently raised the question of what makes "performing" (entertaining) different from "showing off." A lot of the time, when I watch Travis I'm impressed with his technique, e.g., his spins and arabesques, but I have no real desire to watch them. I usually find Benji more entertaining even when his footwork isn't perfect.
    But Travis's contemporary skills will make him a perfect backup dancer for Celine. He just doesn't seem like a star. Both Heidi and Donyelle have more star quality than Travis, to me.

    benji is soooo not gay. remember he said,"when I came back from my mission, i got a wedding invitation and my name wasn't on it."

    anyways: I love you Benji! You rock!

    Nothing about Benji seems gay to me. On the other hand, the more I see Travis, the more my gayday goes off (and I don't think its because he is just young and naive). Benji is a geek, a very talented geek with a wonderful personality and a consumate entertainer. He reminds me of a young Dick Van Dyke - slender, rather tall, and gawky - but extremely agile. Both of these guys deserve to win, and although Travis is better suited to a contemporary backup role, I think Benji is more versatile and could adapt.

    Wow. Looks like my 11yo daughter was on my account last night. Imagine my surprise at reading the above. Thought perhaps I got wicked drunk and forgot I had been here.

    Yes, we love Benji and Travis in our house.

    Benji seems smug to me... Can't put my finger on it exactly, but I'm not a fan...

    I wondered at your diction in that post, Maji! My dd loves Benji (she likes Travis, too). Of course, my husband is a goofball, so Beji's personality is familiar to her.

    If truth is relative, how do you know?

    Gee, didn't anyone stick around to see Benji win!?

    I was delighted, but it wouldn't have broken my heart if Travis had won. They're both excellent to watch.
