By contrast, Samantha always looked uncomfortable and even intimidated by the "stars" at times. As a result she often flubbed her "funny lines."
I agree. I was surprised when it was mentioned earlier in this thread about how someone was saying that they missed Samantha because Drew was so bad by comparison. She did an ok job, but Drew seems funnier, more entertaining to me, at least for the moments I stop fast forwarding the Tivo long enough to hear what he's actually saying.
Given the "black hole" nature of this program (i.e., 2-3 programs a week sucking up too much of my available weekly tv time), with too much redundancy, the inane dialog from the host/s, the judges, the typically weak musical performance interludes, etc., this season I'm determined to skip most everything except for the dance preparation scenes and the dances. I'll skim through much of the judges advice (which is often predictable and contradictory or inconsistent anyway) and also skim through most of the "waiting for their scores" backroom banter, i.e., "we really worked hard this week, I love being here, everyone is dancing great, hope the fans keep us here"
, ad nauseum.
As far the voting last night, besides the models lesser popularity profile, I think that his dance partner might have played a significant part in him being voted off. In the previous (first) week of competition, I thought she came off a bit poorly, attitude wise; speaking up when the judges were critiquing their dance, the irritated faces she would make during that process. She just didn't seem to be a very likable person, though she did seem to be better this week.
