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.
