SPOILERS!! DWTS Season 15, Week 8 – Who Got the Boot??

Blah blah….white space for the retweeters so they don’t accidentally spoil it…blah blah….the couples picked styles/themes for each other and the only person with a chance Derek. He of the Jungle Jazz Samba. I smell a 50′s Paso in the offing.  I hope. :-) Kelly is screwed, along with a few others. Anyway…Whooooo Hooooo – Drinks are on the house!!

We lost two couples tonight and they are….

Kirstie and Maks – Seventh Place

Gilles and Peta – Sixth Place

How did the ladies of PureDWTS do??

Heidi:  My guess was Kirstie in 7th place with Kelly in 6th, with Gilles as my second choice for 6th and Emmitt at the outside.

Courtney: Guessed Kirstie in 7th, with Gilles in 6th with Melissa at a possible in the bottom 3.

Vogue:  Had Gilles in 7th place and Gilles in 6th place, with Emmitt at the outside chance.

NOTE: Once again, Tom said NOT NECESSARILY THE BOTTOM TWO – so once again we have no clue of the actual standings. DWTS is trying to preserve some Drama.

Next week?? THREE dances. I’ll let Courtney fill you in. :-)

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 All Stars, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers

If you want to look at the numbers from last week before they added in two more dances, take a look at DBTN Week 7.

I’m not even going to discuss the judging tonight – it was awful from the opening dance all the way to the end. Len and his horrible comment to Shawn – I think maybe he heard Derek say “f#$k you” with his choreo or something.  People who got perfect scores shouldn’t have while others were excessively punished.  I feel bad for Apolo’s trio going after Shawn cuz he seemed pretty tame after.  I love Emmitt, but a 30 on his trio?? No way. Len’s treatment of Gilles (aka Good) is inexplicable.  And that V. Waltz from Kelly?? WHAT?? Crack is wack, ya’ll. Ridiculous. Oh, look, I talked all about the judging after I said I wouldn’t. :-)   That’s cuz it’s taking the enjoyment out of the show for me.  Anyway, on with the show:

The Judges Scores and Percentages

Bye Bye Kirstie. I don’t think there’s any way she beats that spread. She was in the bottom two previously, when the spread was much smaller.  Since it’s a double elimination, she needs TWO of the following to happen, to avoid going home:

-          Kirstie needs 19,550 more votes per million votes cast than Apolo, OR;

-          Kirstie needs 20,320 more votes per million votes cast than Gilles, OR;

-          Kirstie needs 21,100 more votes per million votes cast than Emmitt or Kelly, OR;

-          Kirstie needs 22,670 more votes per million votes cast than Shawn, OR;

-          Kirstie needs 31,250 more votes per million votes cast than Melissa.

I’m sorry, Kirstie fans. I do wish I could say I thought she was staying. Unfortunately, I think she’s the only sure thing of the night. I would much rather Gilles and Kelly leave before her, but I don’t see that happening. Read more..

PureDWTS 15 Week 8 – The Couples Reactions After Monday Night’s Dance (Interviews)

What a fun night, but, I am NOT looking forward to TWO eliminations tonight…especially if there is a “surprise” elimination, but, more on that in depth later with Heidi in her new Number’s Post. For now, let’s see what the couples had to say on their dances last night with On The Red Carpet.

First up, Tony and Melissa. Their big smiles say it all. Tony says last night was “insane”. Melissa’s goal was just to soak it all up and have the time of her life. Tony praises how hard Melissa has worked. He also speaks of how he doesn’t like to break the rules. The energy with the Veterans at the show helped them to fly.

Emmitt was so honored to dance with two top notch dancers in Kym and Cheryl. He talks of the Veterans and what the show is all about. The Veterans are the true role models so they can be there to entertain. Cheryl says Emmitt worked so hard. Emmitt says he loved how Kym and Cheryl showcased him and who he is. If they get to come back, they will keep working hard.

Kirstie says she’s a “crazy optimist”. At the same time, she’s learned you “have to move on” when you have to. Maks talks of how he let Kirstie decide on the choreography with the Trio dance with Tristan. A little girl named “Tori” joins them for the interview and rates them with a “10″. So cute.

Karina talks of her injuries this past week, but, she’s much better and a “warrior”. If they make it to next week for Michael Jackson’s “Bad” Tribute, they have ideas that are “beyond spectacular”. Apolo says they will “freeze” the dance floor. Karina loves Apolo’s “Grease” look (so, did I! :D ).
