SPOILERS!!! DWTS Season 14, Week 2 – The First Elimination

…is the unkindest cut of all. I always put in a bit of blather here so we don’t spoil those on twitter – even though I’m a firm believe that if you don’t want to know the results, get off the damn computer. :-)

Anyway, our first elimination is Martina and Tony

Our mini scorecard reads as follows:

Courtney: Called Martina going home, with a slight possibility of it being Gavin

Heidi: Called Martina going home with a possibility of Gavin

John: Called Martina going home.

They did a real bottom two tonight for the first time since they wanted David Arquette to stick around. Odd choice tonight, I think. What do they have invested in Gavin??

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. :-)

DWTS Season 14, Week 2 – Dancing by the Numbers

Ai Ai Ai!!! If you are an overly sensitive fan of any of the couples, this post isn’t for you. What a crap ass night of scoring – the dancing was just fine and many couples excelled…but the judges made a secret trip to Columbia before the season started. And dropped a good bit of coin.

And really, you can’t get Derek and Maria’s phone number right?? Jesus – then you fix it (or try to) during Martina and Tony’s skybox chat..and, if I’m not mistaken, never show their number?? I try REALLY REALLY hard not to buy into conspiracy theories – the simplest explanation always being the best and all that (the simplest explanation is that some of the people working on this show are MUPPETS) – but when you so obviously overscore Sherri and (to a lesser extent) Roshon and then just totally screw over Melissa and Jack what do you expect me to do?? I can’t even describe my thoughts on William and Cheryl without using language that John doesn’t approve of. :-) I’ll just say…so William sticks his ass out and looks uncertain most of the time and he gets one of the higher scores of the night?? At least good old Len doesn’t have a vagina. I’m counting on him to keep it real where William is concerned. Now, if he would throw away the memo from the ABC brass that says “Score the family HIGH”, I would be so proud of him. Seriously, Martina would need well more than 22K votes more than William – they are VERY invested in protecting this guy.

Anyway, I could go on all day. Remember, the scores from last week and this week are added together for the couples total. The total number of points awarded is then divided into the couples total for their percentage of the judges scores. That counts for half of the couples total score. The other half is treated the same way – the total number of votes divided into the votes for a given couple. When you add the two percentages together, the couple with the lowest combined total goes home.

Let’s look at the couples and their percentages of the total:

The Judges Scores and Percentages

Place Celebrity Score Percentage
1. Katherine 52 9.65
2. William 49 9.09
2. Roshon 49 9.09
4. Jaleel 48 8.91
5. Maria 46 8.53
5. Sherri 46 8.53
7. Donald 45 8.35
8. Jack 44 8.16
9. Gladys 42 7.79
10. Gavin 41 7.61
11. Melissa 40 7.42
12. Martina 37 6.86

:::sigh::: It’s a great season and even the worst dancers are doing better than the best dancers in many other seasons…so why do the judges insist on playing crazy games?? Katherine did a great job, but in what universe does William get only one point less than her?? They weren’t even close. I don’t think William was even close to Maria. Roshon got the same score tonight as William – he is also not worthy of a point less than Katherine, but he was better than William by a good bit..and he’s such a little cutie. I didn’t think I would like him, but I really do! But he and Sherri’s status with ABC was really showing tonight. Melissa still has issues…but no way was she that much worse than Sherri who missed an entire pass. Who was appropriately scored, IMO?? Well, Gavin, Jaleel, Jack, Donald, Maria and Katherine – but when compared to how other couples were overscored (or in some cases underscored), I’m not so sure any more. Read more..

Pure Dancing With The Stars 14 Week 2 – Interviews After The Dance Part 2 (Videos)

I don’t know about you, but, I always enjoy former Dancing With The Stars pro Louis Van Amstel’s take on the dances after Monday night’s shows. Below is his “overall” take. If you’d like to read his full review, visit ABC here and see if you do or don’t agree with him on the night.

Overall. There were some disappointing routines and some really great ones this week. My top three tonight — William, Katherine and Roshon; all three have been consistent and have shown the most potential so far. Donald is an up and comer. I’m worried mostly for Martina (not happy about that) and am not sure if Gavin’s fan base can overrule Martina’s. I’m also slightly worried for Melissa. We’ll all have to wait to find out.

Carson Kressley had some thoughts as well on Good Morning America today. He thinks Katherine is the front runner. I agree with him on Martina’s pants. It’s a rarity to see anyone able to wear them well?

Dancing With The Stars 14 Week 2 – Interviews After The Dance Part 1 (Videos)

Isn’t it always refreshing to get some class act Dancing With The Stars interviews from George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet and this time is no different. Let’s start out with Derek and Maria….

Derek tells why they’ve kept Maria’s injury under wraps. They’d didn’t want to be “known” as an injured couple. Maria danced last week with two broken ribs and keeps going. Derek calls her “amazing”. Maria says she didn’t want a big deal made on her injury and wants to concentrate on their work and all the fun. George says they are the most improved couple. They are happy and she hopes to find her “sex spot”. They have the Rumba next week if they make it and Derek plans to bring out the “love hand”. Wha??? lol

William had no idea he could be at this level of receive this much love. He feels so blessed for the attention. Cheryl loves all of her new Spanish fans as well. Cheryl thinks he has the potential to go far because he showed he can work hard and he could dance both ballroom and Latin. He says he has to keep listening to Cheryl and do everything she says. “Yes yes…”

Roshon and Chelsie are happy with their scores and placement. George tells Roshon he reminds him of a friend who use to dance in the movies with his fast legs. Chelsie says Roshon has the potential to win the mirror ball if he works hard.

Val says Sherri brings out the best in him and make his cheeks cramp up when she’s so funny all the time. She said she was able to breathe last night and wasn’t as nervous. They are happy with their dance and feel blessed. She wants to have fun and keep living the dream.
