Well kids, we’re back & snarky/juvenile/perverse/etc! And for those of you not accustomed to our particular brand of humor – consider yourself warned. We swear, we get innuendo-y, we make fart jokes, and we call people out for being stupid on the show. If you are hypersensitive/lack a sense of humor/are a prude/whatever, you probably should just skip this post altogether…and you sure as hell better not comment on it. Because any Debbie Downers/Bobby Buzzkills lurking in the comments section will be deleted without a 2nd thought. Consider this the party post – party poopers need not apply, because we have plenty of fellow freaks who love to party along with our special brand of humor. Party on, Wayne
The “C U Next Tuesday” Award: Carrie Ann Inaba, for repeatedly calling out Tom for cutting her off
Courtney: We learned pretty quickly on Monday whether we’d get cool Carrie Ann or bitter, angry Carrie Ann this season – and I think she made it pretty clear it’s definitely the latter. Look, CAI, I get it: your fairytale engagement didn’t result in a fairytale wedding, and you’re probably not too happy about that. But did you really have to repeatedly heckle EMMY AWARD-WINNING HOST Tom Bergeron for cutting your commentary on Joey & Kym’s cha-cha off early? It was pretty obvious the show was moving at breakneck speed in order to fit everyone in, and I daresay that, being the EMMY AWARD -WINNING HOST of a LIVE reality tv show, Tom Bergeron knows a thing or two about effectively fitting into a time frame while still being entertaining – plus he probably had the Muppets upstairs screaming in his earpiece to move things along. I highly doubt whatever long-winded critique you were going to offer up was all that insightful, CAI – it seldom is. Yet your excessive self-importance forced you to interrupt things not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES to remind everyone that Tom cut you off – who’s the asshat now?
Heidi: My brother texted me during the show to call CAI names….then commented that her tampon is in sideways. Yes, that is my family…we tend toward gross at times. But also very apropos. But seriously, don’t heckle The Berg, biotch. It’s not all about you. Hard to believe, I know.
Courtney: Looks like someone had a bad case of Emmy Envy.
The “Deeerrrrp” Award: Chelsie Hightower, for getting confused over the native languages of Brazil & South America; (dis)honorable mention – Val Chmerkovskiy, for not really knowing what Kelly did for a living
Courtney: “Wait…they speak Spanish in South America???” I’d like to think this was taken out of context, but from the puzzled look on Chelsie’s face…I doubt it was. And by the earnest expression on Val’s face as he asked “Oh, you work in a hospital?”, I’m gonna venture a guess that “catching up on the soaps” is not on Val’s list of hobbies
Heidi: Both were hilarious…but I was yelling at my TV, saying “Chelsie, STOP talking, yer makin’ it worse”, while laughing at her. Val I thought was just endearing…and for Kelly, humbling.
Couple’s Schtick That is Most Likely To Get Old VERY Quickly: Sabrina & Louis reminding everyone that Sabrina was voted in and this season is “all about redemption”; (dis)honorable mention for Derek’s short jokes and Kelly & Val’s pattycaking
Courtney: I just think the short jokes are corny And I guess I would just rather see Kelly & Val doing something other than pattycaking…something more…intimate. Maybe if they were playing pattycake with their face. LOL But the Sabrina & Louis “the viewers chose us to be here!” and “this is all about redemption because Sabrina left too early” poppycock is just beyond annoying at this point. If that’s their big reason why people should vote for them – then they must not be that special, because every week that any of the couples is sticking around, is a week they are being “chosen” by the viewers, since they’re obviously getting votes. And you want to talk about “redemption”? Gilles was narrowly beat out for the MBT by a mere 1%. Joey & Kirstie are both 2nd place finishers; Bristol finished 3rd in her season, and was pretty unpopular. Drew, Kelly, & Emmitt are all trying to prove that the earlier champions are every bit as good as the newer ones. I daresay any of the names I just mentioned have a greater hunger for “redemption” than a 7th place finisher who just couldn’t get the votes to stick around in season 5…and has been reminding us about it ever since.
Heidi: Eh, I don’t mind the short jokes and Derek usually recognizes the shelf life of joke in general. (I have to say, though, that the harassment he got from one Shawn fan freak on Twitter was OTT – yo, Derek ain’t the one that looks bad here, nutjob!) Also didn’t mind the patty caking – was rather amazed by that, actually. Not sure I could do that without a shit ton of beer to relax me. :-) But the Sabrina crap is in a whole other league from those other two because we’ve been hearing for YEARS about her (not) shocking elimination. Talk about drinking game potential. Get the fuck over it already! I’m about ready to stick a pen in my eye. Guess what kids – you were voted in over Carson and Kyle, NOT the rest of the cast. You better hope like hell that Team Sabrina is a lot bigger than I suspect it is. Read more..
