Ah, week three – let’s all recreate iconic dances and make fans of the original cringe in horror. I thought I would post this one a bit early, since it is bound to generate a lot of talk. We’ll do the Cheesecake tomorrow, for those wondering. Still lookin’ for a porno gif of the week.
ETA: As I’m adding the video links to the post I’m watching the dances and I have to say…iconic?? Yes to the Futuristic Paso and yes to Mel and Maks Paso.
ETA2: Okay…maybe Julianne and Apolo…and I adore Carson. And Julianne and Helio…but wasn’t that one all about the kiss at the end??
ETA3: Hmmm…I think that Helio and Julianne stretch the rules a good bit in their dance. I think Derek’s going to break them completely, judging by one picture I saw.
ETA4: UPDATE to Gilles/Peta’s dance. They were inspired by Maks and Erin’s tango – which Court says is ordinary and which I can’t even remember. At all. Silly. And by they way, Gilles, your tooting of your own horn on Twitter, telling us how epic and amazing you’re going to be is not only tiresome, but cringe inducing. STFU, you’re making me want to vomit.
ETA5: Awesome, Gilles dancing second. Of course, he’s telling us his dance is “real hard” and he wants to make it wonderful for us. He could make it wonderful for me by shutting up. Geez.
ETA6: This is starting to look….interesting.
ETA7: Sheery, in the comments, says a Bristol fansite (there is such a thing??) is saying she’s 10th. And Mari mentioned that Karina tweeted that they were fourth, although I somehow missed that one. So, by process of elimination, Derek and Shawn have the pimp spot. Perhaps the rumors about that dance are true?
