DWTS 16, Week 5 – SPOILERS!!! Who Got the Boot???

Well, it appears as though Heidi decided to sample moonshine for the first time this evening, and the last I heard on Twitter, she was feeling about like I was on that asthma medication last night – so I’m guessing she’s out committing a felony and smashing things like the Incredible Hulk :-P So you guys get to deal with me tonight…yay!

Now that I’ve wasted enough space for the Twitter crowd…Victor, Sean, & Andy all ended up in jeopardy tonight, with Victor and Sean in the bottom two, and Victor going home.  Can’t say I’m too surprised by that one…just like the team paso getting the encore, despite its mediocrity.  Zzzzz….

How did the Pure crew do?

Courtney:  Said Victor was going home, with Ingo in the bottom 2…with the off-chance that it would be Sean in the bottom 2 instead of Ingo.

Heidi: Said Victor and either Ingo or Andy in the bottom 2…and that Victor was likely toast.

Vogue: Said Victor & Sean in the bottom 2, with Victor leaving.

Vogue hit the nail on the head this week, with Heidi & I getting it partially right.  Sean lives to awkwardly shimmy his way through Latin week (likely shirtless), Andy continues to be our little ray of sunshine, and Peanut will probably steal the show (and the cheese) again :-P All is right in the Pure kingdom…moonshine & steroids for everyone!!! Kidding…sort of ;-)

Dancers and Dance Fans Unite: Please Help This Dance Instructor Who Was Hurt In The Boston Bombings

Did you know there was a dance instructor hurt in the Boston Bombings? Her name is Adrianne Haslet-Davis. She was at the Boston Marathon with her husband, Air Force Captain Adam Davis, who had just recently returned home from Afghanistan. Both were injured when the second bomb exploded near them. Adrianne’s left foot and part of that leg had to be amputated. Despite her injuries, she has vowed to dance again and do whatever it takes. Below she talks with Anderson Cooper about it in case you missed this on his show last night. My heart broke in two when I saw this and yet, something in me says, she ‘will’ dance again. What a sweet, strong, and courageous young woman. If you’d like to help her, please visit this website. Even the smallest amount can make a difference.

Thanks to Eileen for sending this news to us last night!

UPDATE: No idea if this is true or not, but, one of our readers is reporting that Adrianne Haslet-Davis and her story might be spot lighted on Dancing With The Stars next week. Also, below is the cast sending her some love and cheer on Inside Edition Monday night.

UPDATE2: Tom Bergeron announced on the show tonight that they are indeed spot lighting Adrianne Haslet-Davis on next week’s results show. They will also be announcing how the show plans to help her (So awesome!! And according to what Codebear reports to us, he, Elena Grinenko, and Nick Kosovich were able to get the ball rolling for this.). Read more..

DWTS Season 16, Week 6 – Dancing by the Numbers

Such a weird night. First, they yank out the tens for one of Zendaya’s worst dances….it’s almost like they knew that Team Paso was gonna suck kinda hard. Then, Carrie Ann refuses to give up a 10 to Kellie and Derek, claiming that there was space between them, yet totally failing to note Zendaya’s again bad legs. They then totally hose Andy (and Len continues to be excessively mean to him), while being kind to Victor, who had a worse dance than Andy’s.

Weirdest of all – on paper, Team Paso should have had that dance in the bag. So, did they get over confident? Think they could skate by on bare chests (didn’t the same pros fail at that last season as well?)?? What?? I guess this just goes to show that if you are the weaker team and you have to be MORE creative in order to get past your weak dancers, you just DO.

It will be really funny when the team dance that sucked eggs (and looked like the poor man’s version of Derek/Brooke’s team paso at the end) wins the encore. LOL. Yeeeaaah. :-D

Anyway, how did our dancers do??

week 6

So…Victor is in deep doo doo. It will take a bit of a miracle to save him at this point. What does he need to get to be safe? Victor needs ONE of the following things to happen:

–        Victor needs 8,000 more votes per million votes cast than Andy, OR;

–        Victor needs 13,300 more votes per million votes cast than Jacoby, OR;

–        Victor needs 16,000 more votes per million votes cast than EITHER Ingo or Sean, OR;

–        Victor needs 29,200 more votes per million votes cast than Zendaya, OR;

–        Victor needs 32,000 more votes per million votes cast than Aly, OR;

–        Victor needs 37,200 more votes per million votes cast than Kellie.

Frankly, I don’t believe Victor gets any of those margins. His best bet is Andy and Andy was low scorer last week but was NOT in the bottom two. Victor, on the other hand, had two people below him in terms of score, but was still in the bottom two. Not looking good for Victor. At all.

But let’s say that Victor manages to pass someone. Andy is next in line in terms of judges score. What does Andy need to have happen in order to be safe? He needs ONE of the following:

–        Andy needs for Victor to NOT get 8,000 more votes per million votes cast than him, OR;

–        Andy needs 5,350 more votes per million votes cast than Jacoby, OR;

–        Andy needs 8,000 more votes per million votes cast than EITHER Ingo or Sean, OR;

–        Andy needs 21,300 more votes per million votes cast than Zendaya, OR;

–        Andy needs 24,000 more votes per million votes cast than Aly, OR;

–        Andy needs 29,200 more votes per million votes cast than Kellie.

Now, I don’t think Victor is getting the 8k he needs…and I would be willing to bet that Andy is getting 8k more than Ingo. I just think that Ingo has worn out his welcome. But he was put in jeopardy last week and sometimes a guy gets a bounce after that happens. Will Ingo?? I dunno. My gut is saying no. I think, based largely on his bromance with Tristan and how funny he was about that, Sean is likely safe this week.  I think it will come down to Victor, Ingo and Andy.

What does Ingo (or Sean) need to have happen in order to be safe?? Ingo (or Sean) needs ONE of the following things to happen:

–        Ingo needs for Victor to not get the 16,000 more votes per million votes cast than him, OR;

–        Ingo needs for Andy  to not get the 8,000 more votes per million votes cast than him, OR;

–        Ingo needs for Jacoby to NOT get the 2,700 more votes per million votes cast than him, OR;

–        Ingo needs to get ONE more vote per million votes cast than Sean, OR;

–        Ingo needs 13,300 more votes per million votes cast than Zendaya, OR;

–        Ingo needs 16,000 more votes per million votes cast than Aly, OR;

–        Ingo needs 21,300 more votes per million votes cast than Kellie.

Okay, so based on all of the above, I think the following happens:

–        Ingo and Sean aren’t touching Jacoby and he’s safe, easily getting 2,700 more votes per million votes cast than each of them;

–        Andy gets 8k more than Ingo and Victor can’t catch him and is, therefore, safe;

–        Ingo is getting beat by Sean, Jacoby and Andy, but there is no way that Victor is getting 16k more votes per million votes cast….

–        Therefore, Victor goes home.

Seems like a simple math problem this week, but I could be wrong. I was starting to wonder if perhaps Zendaya wasn’t getting the votes, as badly as they overscored her Cha Cha, but I’m also wondering if they put her just far enough down to be safe while rallying her fans to vote like the little maniacs they are.

Doesn’t matter, IMO.  I think it will either be Victor and Ingo or Victor and Andy in the bottom two and Victor will go home.

I’m saying it will be Victor and Ingo in the bottom two and Victor goes home.

Anna Trebunskaya Reviews The Dances For Stevie Wonder Night On Dancing With The Stars

Louis Van Amstel wasn’t able to review the dances last night on Dancing With The Stars, but, our beautiful Anna filled in for him. She has good things to say about everyone, but, she is the most worried for Victor being eliminated tonight and apologizes for being a “Debbie Downer”.

Kellie Pickler’s Quickstep: She did amazing! She looked fantastic, stayed in character and was very consistent with footwork and frame. Wonderful execution of a very classy routine. She is getting better and better with every routine. I actually like her a lot in ballroom dances. Kellie has such a spunky personality, but she can bring total class to her dances as well.

Victor Ortiz’s Rumba: Sorry to be a “Debbie Downer” here, but not the best dance for Victor. I like Victor’s personality so much, but he wasn’t able to merge it with the character of Rumba. Victor needs to find joy and fun in the slower , elegant dances as well as the fast-paced ones. I’m worried that he may be going home tonight. If he is still in the competition, he needs to challenge himself and find his personality again.

Jacoby Jones’s Quickstep: Pigeon toes or not, he’s a musical dancer. Jacoby lets music run through his body and energize his movement. His frame was good, speed was great and energy was never ending (as usual) . But please, smile! Just because a ballroom dance has a frame , still show your enjoyment. I do agree with Len that Jacoby is a better Latin dancer.

I think she nails it with her review. What do you think? You can read it in full at Good Morning America here.

Good Morning America also recapped the night. You can watch their coverage at this link for what they have so far. They may post more, so keep checking back.

Stay tuned. Miss Heidi’s new Numbers prediction post is coming up next. ;)

PureDWTS Media After The Dance, New Dances Revealed, Dance Off Planned For Week 7

What another fun night of TV on Dancing With The Stars. I’m still put off with the judges overscoring and underscoring (especially Len! Does he need to retire? I’m starting to seriously think so! :-? ), but hey!! Anyway, let’s see what the dancers thought of last night’s dances with George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet. Note how he finds out a few of the new dances for next week. It’s Latin Week. They have an individual dance and an IMMUNITY DANCE OFF too which Sharna explains in her and Andy’s interview…..

First up! Kelly and Derek talk of how much fun they had doing Team Samba! Derek said it didn’t come together until Sunday!! George asks them how it feels to be at the top of the leader board, but, Kellie says she “pays no mind to that”. She’s not a competitive person and just wants have fun and find joy in dancing for what she’s fallen in love with.

Jacoby and Karina say last night wasn’t their “friend” and neither was Len. Next week, Karina said they won’t concentrate so much on footwork. They still had a lot of fun and enjoyed the night. Jacoby gets goofy at the end and they send some love to Baltimore.

Aly and Mark are happy their team dance pulled them to second place. Mark was glad to be teamed up with Derek since he can say what he wants to him. Aly and Mark were hoping for some 9’s for their individual dance, but, they are still happy (this is their best costume, do you agree? LOL!)

Val and Zendaya! George goes over their scores and asks how much their scores mean. Zendaya doesn’t concentrate on that. She just wants to get the dance right and meet their expectations which are high for the both of them. She wants to do the best she can. Details matter to Val and he likes to choreograph movement and action. He doesn’t just want the dance to look good. He wants it to feel good. Next week they have the Paso Doble. Val’s head is already spinning with ideas. He plans to redeem themselves from their team dance. He’s got a big move planned.

Andy says they may have received lower points for the individual dance, but, they are dancing their hearts out. They are glad their team dance worked in their favor. It was the hardest week, but, the most fun. If they make it next week (which they are hoping for), it will be even more fun because they have a Rumba. Sharna says it will be “beautiful”. It’s Latin Week and they will also have a immunity DANCE OFF!! Sharna explains how they have to have three routines ready (which can be a Samba, Rumba, or a Jive for it). The bottom will have to battle it out.
