    Is he one of the poor unfortunate souls that didn't get any face time? I don't remember much about him!

    Goodie! A salsa dancer, I hope he does well.

    I don't recall this guy either, but since he is really cute he should get lots of votes from the teen girls.

    When I read the list of names, I had no face to put with this one. I don't remember him either. Of course, we didn't see much of Neil Haskell before the show started either. I'm ready to watch!!

    I'm thinking he'll land in the bottom this week since 1) he went early and 2) he and Karla were some of the invisible ones during the auditions stage. If he does land in the bottom, I hope he doesn't get sent home. He's not someone I'm rooting for, but if he gets eliminated first, it'll be a little too reminiscent of S2 and S4, when Staislav and Jaime got eliminated (respectively) first in their seasons.

    Like Mary said, Jonathan is a better contemporary dancer than a Salsa dancer. He and Karla rocked it last Tuesday. What a beautiful number and what a beautiful couple. He and Karla do seem to get along well unlike Asuka and Vitolio where the chemistry is totally lacking.

    So sorry to see Jonathon go. I thought the contemp he did last week showed real promise. I wanted to see if he could match it. Unfortunately, he seemed somewhat mediocre as a ballroom dancer, supposedly his speciality.

    ITA... too bad because the contemp was very good. But he dragged Karla way down for the hip hop... nice guy but not versatile enough.
