Couple I like least in the top 12 is Aaron and Jasmine...especially Aaron who I don't think never have seen bottom 3. He reminds me of Cyrus who coasted to the top even though he is less talented than the rest who were eliminated before him. Aaron dances like he's balancing a coconut on his head and he doesn't move very fluidly, he lacks finesse. Even when they did hiphop, the judges praised Jasmine who obviously outshined him and was carried by her throughout the performance. He was lacking punch and both were lacking grit. For some reason, the judges loved the performance perhaps based on the attitude. I get it, people are voting based on personality but at this stage of the game, talent should be the main criteria.
Paul is seriously better than other male constestants and miles more than Aaron. I didn't know he already won in Armenia's SYTYCD (deservingly so) until I saw a post on the FORT but I skipped the contestants previews before the performance and their vignettes everytime. I had a very objective point of view when I first saw the top 20, had no idea who they were because I didn't care if they have a dying mom/dad or supporting 10 kids or have an affliction or have boring personality, all I cared about is the dancing/talent. I think Tucker comes closest until I saw their Hiphop routine which was disappointing and it's probably the fault of the choreographer (which I think Nigel implicitly called out).
As for the women, I haven't made up my mind between Mackenzie, Jenna, and Haley. I think Haley is the most consistent of the 3 despite being paired with guys that are not on par with her.
