I've gotta admit I kept hoping Ian would have an epiphany and figure out how to look natural and loose while hitting the steps, but he seems to be a lost cause at this point.

I think the shocker from last night is that Joey apparently doesn't have a big enough fan base to win this thing (since his fans couldn't even keep him ahead of Ian). So even if the judges give Joey the best score next week, he might not even make the finals. And since the judges really seem to want an Ali/Ono final, Joey's prospects look rather dim.

Billy Ray was long past due in receiving his walking papers. There were much better contestants booted before him. He seemed to acknowledge that last night, but there are rumors now that he will be using these lyrics in his next song:

Well I heard Tonioli talk about me
Well, I heard ole Bruno put me down
Well, I hope Bruno Tonioli will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Hey you forgot to include the chorus..

Well I heard Tonioli talk about me
Well, I heard ole Bruno put me down
Well, I hope Bruno Tonioli will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow
And that's
(chorus)
the Pot callin' the kettle black
the pot callin' the kettle black
the pot callin' the kettle black
Who's callin' the kettle black now!
No crap

One of the great things about this show is that the women pros have a fairly wide variety of body types and looks, so there's something for everybody.

Kym has the best "classic" body type, but I tend to prefer petite women so I prefer Katrina's body, Julliane being a bit top heavy for my tastes, Cheryl being a bit too stocky and Edyta being a bit too lanky. But this is all just personal preference. They all have great bodies.

But, when you factor in the faces, I'll take Cheyl's "girl next door" look every time over Julliane's Cinderella look, Kym's classic beauty and over Edyta & Katrina's exotic looks.

Billy Ray was on Kimmel's show last night and he said that Katrina was on an episode of Hanny Montana and he said she was "a natural actress". Perhaps he was just being polite, but DWTS does seem to be launching the careers of some of these dancers, so it wouldn't surprize me to see Julliane get some acting offers.

She can star in a film for me anytime. And she doesn't even have to be a good actress.

I'll take any of them, but all would be better.
I really like Kym.
Juli is a close second.
Then Cheryl.
The others are just hot bodies to me. Nothing special above the neck.

I'm not sure where you grew up but there has never been a girl next door to me that looked like Cheryl.

Has anyone else noticed a fair amount of low frequency hum during the broadcasts? And they seem to have the LF pumped with an EQ or somethign in general. My sub is going crazy during every show and it drives my dogs nuts.

I noticed what sounded like a 60Hz hum on a show, but I can't remember which show it was now.

At first I thought I had somehow picked up a ground loop hum even though I hadn't changed any connections lately. After a couple of tests I knew it was the show.

Anyway, I think it was some other show, not DWTS, because I've been much happier with the audio this season. I'll listen closer next monday.

With the history of this season's myriad camera/video gaffs, I wouldn't be surprised if they screwed up the audio at some point too.

Yes, but I think that's by design. It's a low level hum that oscillates a little. It seems to be designed to add to the suspense. But It can be distracting. My cat leaves the room whenever the show comes on.
The pressure builds up in my room like crazy.

Sounds like the same audio gimmick ABC used on that Regis Millionaire show.

Weekly Monday BUMP...

Four couples left - two performance shows left. Does Ian survive another week (giving Cheryl a chance at a three-peat)? Or is it finally time for Mister "Phony Smile" to make his expected exit?

Will Joey & Kym be in the bottom two again?

Will Len finally finish off Bruno?

Will Carrie Ann finally wise up? ("I'm tired of Stuff and FHM! I'm going for the big time - Penthouse! Hustler!")

Chills! Thrills! More Tom B. silly double-entendres!

Or better yet, will there be a major wardrobe malfunction?

If Apolo and Julianne pull off some more good moves like they have the last several weeks, look for them to be a serious contender for the trophy next week.

Yep, they've surprised me at how good they've gotten. He should be in the finals along with Joey, but based on last week, it's looking like it will be Layla and Apolo, with the best dancer left out.... again. Shades of Stacy Kiebler. Hey, it's DWTS!

Yeah... look, I know at this point in the competition they usually grade them all pretty much the same so that it really is the audience vote that counts, but last night was just a sham.

Yep, what a joke. There is no way she was better than (or even on par with) Ohno.

Joey's six 10's were legitimate though.

Agree. Layla's getting preferential treatment, presumably because of a) her father's fan base, and b) because ABC would prefer a male/female finale rather than two guys like last time. Ian will go tonight (bye Cheryl; ). I hate to see it, but there's probably nothing Joey can do to make the finals. I actually called and voted for him last night (3 times!); first time I've ever done that. Noticed they cut off the phone lines pretty early, too.

I noticed it again this week. Often it seems almost like the mike is brushing against things and causing some LF info since they seem to really pump it up in general.


I Agree this week the judgeing is a little suspect. They bunched them up too much and gave out too many 10s for performances that were not perfect.

It was really a great night though. All of them did very well. But Julie and Apollo were out of this world hot. Joey was great with his jumps & flips. Ian was much better. Funny as h.ll with the King look. Layla wasn't as good as Apollo or Joey but was still pretty good. Her fan base and inconsistent judging will keep her in for the finals. Hopefully Ian goes tonight instead of Joey or Apollo.
Can't wait to watch it again tonight, in slow-mo......
