Well, theme week strikes again – three quicksteps and a mish mash of everything else! Difficult to compare. Hope has rumba, which is of concern since it’s actually more difficult than it appears. Ricki has a rib injury, which could cause problems for their quickstep, although she does NOT appear to be giving up. I have a feeling it will be JR’s night once again and I think David will also do well with the Quickstep. Carrie Ann will give Rob high marks because her loins will do the talking. :-) My pre-dance prediction for elimination will have to be a tie between Chaz and Nancy, with Hope’s odds hinging almost entirely on her package, her dance and her overall attitude. I’m pulling for her mainly because I think she has more potential than Chaz or Nancy – but like it or not, personality plays a role here.
Common sense says that the Quicksteps would alternate with the rest of the dances, but we’ll see. :-) They’ve given Chaz a great spot….or so it appears at first glance. The Group Dance tends to throw everything into disarray. In a two hour show, with only 8 non-pro dances, who knows how it shakes out? Depends on how many pro dances they throw in there as filler. I think I read that Kristin Chenowith is on both Monday and Tuesday as well. Since all the added stuff to the performance show is new to this season (and last?), I’m not sure how it affects running order. I think we’re also getting to the stage of the show where running order no longer plays a huge part in risk of elimination. There just aren’t as many couples. Anyway…
ETA: Now Maks is spoiling songs too?? Heh. I take it a step further and name the song.
