DWTS13 End-of-Season Award Winners – Which Couple’s Elimination Was the Most Disappointing?

Other responses:

David & Kym – 20

Elisabetta & Val – 2

Rob & Cheryl – 1

Chaz & Lacey – 1

Tie between Chynna & Kristin – 1

None/They all deserved to go except JR – 2 (Had to chuckle a bit at this one…;-))

NANCY WAS THE WORST DANCING – 1 (Ok, we get it: you didn’t like Nancy…but at least answer the question CORRECTLY 8O)

Courtney: This one was an odd one for me. While it was somewhat disappointing for me to see two very talented contestants sent packing early on (Kristin & Chynna), I can’t say it was entirely unexpected – both Heidi & I got a feeling before the season even started that those two ladies in particular could blend into the woodwork and be the victims of shock eliminations. Especially with Chynna – I think I mentioned in the weeks leading up to the premiere that Chynna & Tony were not doing nearly as much media as the other couples, and that I wasn’t sure how much of a fanbase Chynna was going to have, since she had been out of the spotlight for awhile. And with Kristin, I was seeing Audrina all over again – very pretty, talented girl, but with a fanbase that couldn’t be bothered to tune in and vote. In those situations, unfortunately, it often really doesn’t matter how well you dance – if you don’t have the votes to back you up, you’re probably going to get sent home pretty early. Really and truly, I think Carson was the most disappointing elim for me – I wanted (and sometimes really needed) his comic relief on the show for awhile, even though I can admit that I do think it was probably his time to go. Ricki & Derek – yeah, it would have been nice to see them place 2nd instead of 3rd, but I think they still did quite admirably; I think Nancy & Tristan lasted longer than anyone expected, so they were eliminated with a great deal of pride; sorry, but I think Hope & Maks should have been gone long before they were actually eliminated – and they both seemed so bitter and angry by the end, that it was kind of a relief to see them set free. I’m glad so many of you were disappointed to see David go – he had grown on me by the end, too, and I had been hoping he made it to the finale; I’m not sure why I didn’t include him as one of the regular responses – I guess I was just trying to keep it limited to 6, just to maintain my sanity :-) I can’t say I was disappointed to see Elisabetta & Val go – but I was disappointed that she wasn’t better than she actually turned out to be.

Heidi: I’m trying to remember who I voted for in this category. Pretty sure it wasn’t Ricki and Derek – I kinda felt like Derek fans were being a bit greedy. Really, if they weren’t going to WIN what difference does it make if they are second or third?? Don’t get that. I’m just happy Derek was on every single week. :-) And really, they went out in STYLE which they wouldn’t have been able to do if they had gotten second. Like Courtney said, we did predict Chynna and Kristin would have problems – the difference is between “surprise” and “disappointment”. You can be unsurprised, but still be disappointed. There are many times that I am pretty sure at what’s going to happen, but my hope gets the better of me. I keep hoping that the audience will surprise me. THAT said, I wasn’t disappointed when Chynna left, but I was kinda disappointed when Kristin left. But I would bet I voted for David or Carson – those two were killing me and they really kept the show light and fun – which is what it should be all the time. :-) I kinda feel like Carson’s departure started the downhill slide of the season; when the producers didn’t have his antics to focus on, the shifted over to Hope and Maks and thereby shifted the tone of the show…and not for the better.

Vogue: This past season, I felt like America got it right for the most part with who was picked to go each week. Yeah, maybe Kristin and Chynna were picked to go too early. Then again, I felt like Kristin legs weren’t going to have the power they needed to get her very much further on the show anyway. She and Mark didn’t have that certain magic together either. Chynna’s legs were weak too and I was tiring of the ballet swirls she kept doing even though I thought they were kind of cool at first. There were a couple of times, I was worried Chaz and Nancy might go home too early. I loved how they gave it their ‘all’ every week. Chaz had a telling message and such a big heart. Nancy and Tristan were so entertaining and they took me away every week with their Prince and Princess way. In the end, I voted for Chaz and Lacey as the most disappointing elimination only because I felt like Bruno was so ‘over the top’ mean to him which wasn’t right or necessary. I was more It was hard to see Anna and Carson leave too. They were so entertaining. In fact, they were one of the Most Entertaining couples to ever grace this show. For that, they should look back at their union so proud.

DWTS Season 4 on GSN – Coming This Saturday, January 21st!!!

Are you guys ready for Apolo Ono and Julianne Hough?? Lalia Ali?? Joey Fatone??  Join us on a trip back to the spring of 2007!!  GSN will be airing back to back performance and results shows from Season 4 on Saturdays at 6pm Eastern (5 pm Central). And guess what?? Some of our most popular features are going to flashback to 2007 as well! This will take retrospective Cheesecake to a whole new level. :-) We can’t guarantee we’ll do it every single week, since Courtney and myself do enjoy our little vacations from the DWTS schedule, but we are thinking we will get flashes of inspiration from watching older seasons of the show. I’m seeing possible LOLz posts, some numbers just to see if how close (or not) eliminations were, and who knows what else? Maybe Courtney will be inspired to a “Who Wore it Better” in conjunction with Randall’s guest posts. Of course, it will help if you’re watching along with us. ;-)

And of course, we’ll keep watching out for rumors and innuendo. :-)

NOTE FROM COURT: If my DVR is correct, they’re going to be airing the season 4, week 1 & week 2 performance shows back-to-back, followed immediately by the week 2 results show.  So the cheese/WWIB/Randall’s Retrospective/etc will be covering those two weeks – be sure to watch them both :-)

While you wait, GSN’s Site has a new video to enjoy -

And then there’s the matter of pictures I got from GSN and neglected to post… :-)

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Tony Dovolani Prepares For Miss Nevada Pageant (Photo)

Tony will be choreography while Maks will be one of the pageant’s judges. For the last week, Tony has been in Las Vegas prepping for the event as you can see above.

Thanks to @AfanDwts at twitter for the heads up!!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Rumor Will Paula Deen Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 14?

So, who knows how true this rumor is, but, Hollywood Life has an “inside source” that says the producers of Dancing With The Stars have asked professional chef Paula Deen to dance. Interesting note: Paula was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. You can read more below and at the link on Paula.

An insider at the hit ABC show tells HollywoodLife.com producers are seriously considering the 64-year-old cook and host for season 14.

“‘DWTS’ suits love good stories,” our source says. “It’s good timing. Paula just confirmed she has diabetes and this could help her a lot.”

As far as Paula’s age, the higher ups aren’t concerned. ”Producers love Paula’s likability and think it would guarantee she’d be around for a couple weeks, regardless,” the insider explains.

What’s more, Louis Van Amstel must have heard this news. Last night, he told Showbiz Tonight he wants to dance with Paula. Below is a take from USA Today

Last night on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, Dancing With the Stars pro Louis Van Amstel said, “I have a good idea, activity is the best thing. If Paula Deen goes on Dancing with the Stars, I would love to have her as my partner and she is going to become an inspiration! How about it?!”

Adding: Here’s Louis on Showbiz Tonight…

So, what do you think if this rumor comes true? I think she looks fun and it would be cool to hear her being an advocate of Diabetes on the show! I wish more people would speak up on Diabetes! I can also see her dancing with Louis too…or Tony?

Heidi’s Note: Once again I feel compelled to point out the track record of certain websites last season – up and down. Geez –  we like hits too, but you don’t see us jumping on every single person in the news and say “insiders tell us that….”.  Seriously, this is starting to look like sites grasping onto every single person to make the news – Tim Tebow, Paula…the list is getting very long. I’m tempted to go back to our posts before the last two seasons and examine just how true alot of this stuff turned out to be.  Hey…that’s an idea!!

OF COURSE, Louis is all for it since he would love to be back on the show. That’s a no brainer and really lends no credence or weight to the story at all.

Maybe Paula will dance, maybe she won’t….but I bet the “wish list” the producers have is ten miles long and half of  Hollywood is on it.  I would like something solid that doesn’t just scream convenience.
