SPOILERS!!! DWTS Season 10, Week 5 – The Scorecard

And Courtney is currently waltzing around her living room in joy. :-) That’s right, Kate had to hit the trail tonight.

Well, I would say that I was freaking ECSTATIC to be wrong – and part of me is – but part of me is also incredibly bummed that Pam was in an actual “bottom two” again. That’s just so wrong! That said, looking back at my numbers post, it’s not really that hard for Niecy to get more votes that her. Remember, Niecy only had to get about 17,400 more votes per 1 million votes cast. Sounds like a lot, but it’s really not. I also realize that I unintentionally left Pam out of my votes discussion.

One thing about the results show, other than my love for Adam Corrolla – Next time you’re going to have four hot male pros dancing get rid of that chick in the middle. She was just in the way. :-)

The Scorecard:
Heidi – called it Niecy solid with no backup plan. Therefore, I fail. But I’m so not upset about that. :-)

Courtney – Also called it Niecy solid and Kate safe. I can’t imagine she’s upset to be wrong either. She’ll let us know when she stops waltzing.

Summary:
Heidi: I think what I forgot to take into account was Niecy’s previous status as a bottom two person – it caused every other fan group to rally, why not Niecy’s? As a result of that rally, it came back round to Pamela. But now, Kate is gone – so who’s it going to be?? I think this week the dance really will be critical, more than ever. It sounds like we have either Samba (Nicole, Erin) or Argentine Tango (Niecy?) in addition to a Swing Marathon. Swing? Why swing? Which pro excels in that? None that I know of, that are currently on the show.

Courtney, what say you??

Courtney: I have never been so happy to be so wrong about who was going home :-D No more crying, needy lead-ins…no more low-energy performances…and no more frustrations taken out on Tony! Watching DWTS will be a much happier experience for me now :-) I have to wonder if George Lopez’s stupid “Keep Kate” campaign actually did more harm than good – voting for Kate was the cool, nonconformist thing to do, until he took it to the mainstream. Either that, or Kate went from being the “trainwreck that was fun to watch” to just being whiny & boring, and people stopped voting. Or maybe it was the fact that she was actually improving a tiny bit. Whatever it is, I’m glad Tony is free, and we can hopefully avoid the “Kate-saturation” of the media week after week.

But echoing Heidi’s sentiments – it seriously scared the crap outta me that Pam was in the bottom 2 again. I’m hoping it was just the fact that people just assumed she was safe and didn’t vote, rather than forgetting about her altogether or deliberately not voting for her. I’m crossing my fingers that she & Damian’s Argentine tango next week is dynamite, and that her fans rally to pull her outta the bottom 2. Hopefully they can break out of that dreaded “middle of the pack” position they fell into this week, and overtake Jake & Erin.

I happily admit that I underestimated Niecy’s appeal…guess her jiggly parts are paying the dividends, after all ;-)
