So here we are… we are now officially through “two-thirds” of the season and I’ve been updating and cleaning up my spreadsheet, so that way I could create graphs for you to see how the predicted scores compared with the actual scores of the celebrities that have left us since Week 4 (eventually I’ll update the previous scorecard to include graphs for the first few weeks of the season).
In case you have forgotten from the last time, the initials “P – A – D” are simply:
– Predicted: this is the original calculated predicted scores
– Actual: this is the score that the celeb/pro pairing actually received on the show
– Difference: is the point difference between the predicted and actual scores
So if you would recall from Week 4:
I mentioned that there was a 2 point difference with some scores being close/spot on versus scores that were way off. For three weeks Katherine/Mark was getting the largest score difference (5 – 5 – 6) and now they have virtually none.
So far Gavin seems the most steady to history with another zero (0) point difference week.
There also seems to be a shift happening with the largest point difference:
– Roshon/Chelsie: 5 points
– Donald/Peta: 4 points
Did this affect standings of the couples that were in danger on Week 4? Well it depends on how you look at it. Roshon/Chelsie had a massive point difference and they were in the Bottom Two. While Sherri/Val had the average point difference of two and they were sent packing.
Speaking of Sherri, let’s look at how her actual scores on the show compared with the predicted scores over the four weeks she was on the show:
This is the best interview I’ve seen with William Levy this season. It’s touching as he walks Nightline through what his life was like as a child growing up in communist Cuba for what he experienced to the point of deprivation, being hungry, and being bullied. Living in Cuba was a “do or die” situation. He was ready to risk his life to come to the States. Also, it might surprise you to learn William’s reaction to visiting a grocery store in America for the first time since he had never seen an apple before. Also, check out how he doesn’t think he has a pretty face and why (which I found humbling). See if you don’t agree and lots more below…
“I bow down to the beast…that is the dance floor!” ~Jaleel White on his elimination!
I have to give Jaleel some props last night. Although I was never wild about his dancing and some of his behaviors through the controversies that came out, he handled his elimination like a pro and better than I thought he would. He took it with a big smile and was thankful for his time and the new friends he made on Dancing With The Stars. Also, the quote above will be one I file away in my Dancing With The Stars memory book! Thanks Jaleel and good luck with all of your future and personal endeavors!!
So, let’s see what Jaleel and Kym had to say after their elimination. Here they are on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE (David Arquette joins in on the fun! Let’s just say…there is a lot of bleeping going on), On The Red Carpet, Good Morning America (check out how his daughter called Kym a “princess”. Kym and Jaleel think katherine will win the competition), and Entertainment Tonight (this one includes some thoughts from his fellow competitors).
What would we do without George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet? Once again, he interviews the couples after Results night to find out what he can for next week’s dances. He found out there will be no theme night (Yay!) and that the couples will have two dances next week …a Ballroom dance and a Latin dance. To add a “twist” to the night, the Latin dance will be danced with a third person. The dance is called a “Trio” dance. How it works is that the remaining couples get to pick another pro who has been eliminated or who is a member of the troupe to help them and then they perform together (if I’m understanding this right?). Don’t forget there will also be a double elimination as well next week making it even more challenging and stressfull for the couples. Listen closely below for more details and then look for more thoughts from Heidi and I afterwards. Note also that Maria & Derek and William & Cheryl weren’t interviewed.
Ok, here we go….
Maks and Melissa are so thankful to their fans for keeping them in the competition. Maks goes through the numbers (Heidi will find this interesting!). Melissa is happy she gets to stay and keep dancing. They are dancing with Val for their “Trio” dance which will be a Samba.
Donald is going to keep working hard. He wants in the finals. He’s a little nervous about having two dances and one with another person, but, and he will do whatever it takes. (Adding: In a new ET interview, Peta mentions they have a Tango and a Jive for next week. Karina is their pro for the Trio dance).
Katherine was worried she and Mark might leave last night. They are happy they weren’t eliminated. Mark explains how the dances will work next week, but, won’t reveal their dances or much else.
Roshon says he’s learning so much on the show. He’s taking it ‘step by step’ and he’s glad he’s still here. George praises him for his ‘class’ for smiling through bad news and that he still get’s out there to work hard and he’s happy and thankful. Chelsie explains the dances next week. They have the Paso Doble for their “Trio” dance. They have the Fox Trot for their ballroom dance.
Roshon and Chelsie were also interviewed by Access Hollywood…
Adding: Below is an Afterbuzz TV interview with Maks, Melissa, and Tony as well. Tony has been picked for one the Trio dances, but, not sure who yet? Thanks to Evaine for the heads up on this in the comments.
Adding #2: According to Cheryl’s blog just posted at OK! Magazine, she and William have the Fox Trot and the Paso Doble for next week. No mention on who their pro will be for the Trio dance. More below…
Next week is two individual dances, so you’ll really see who can handle two dances and who can’t. We have the foxtrot and the paso doble. I think the paso is going to be one of William’s favorite dances so I think that will be really exciting. And then the foxtrot, I think will be fun, too, so we just have to see what happens and work hard.
We may add more later. So, what do you think of the way they are doing next week’s dances? I’m not sure what to think yet? It sounds exciting, but, I’m clueless. lol Let’s get Heidi’s thoughts and be sure to tell us your thoughts as well….
Heidi: I think Maks should not try to do the math. :-) He should just come here. But look away for a minute if you’re sensitive….@#$%$# Jesus Christ, can’t they just let this f#@king show alone?? A third person in their dance?? WHY!?!?!? STUPID. RIDICULOUS. Let them f@#king dance!! :::sigh::: That said…I’m sure that a couple pros (Derek, Mark) will rise to this challenge quite well and we might see something great. But the better odds are that we’ll see something stupid as hell.
