DWTS Season 16, Week 8 – Who Got the Boot? (SPOILERS)

So, DWTS Producers, if you’re keeping track, here’s how much of your show we predicted well before it went on the air:

- That Zendaya would get the encore.

- That you would put Jacoby or Kellie in Jeopardy.

- That you would deviate from the “Bottom two” formula and revert to the “not necessarily the bottom two” formula so that you could not reveal that Ingo is also bottom two.

- That Derek’s new dance would be more incredible than anything he’s done so far.

- That Sean would be eliminated.

And we were correct on ALL counts. Aren’t you embarrassed?? Aren’t you embarrassed to so blatantly pimp an ABC employee? Aren’t you embarrassed by making a fool out of yourselves for the tweens who aren’t even watching the show?? The very best choreographer you have gets treated like crap by an OTT judge (and he’s just the latest in a long line to get OTT treatment) has not gotten ONE encore this season (while the Disney employee is on number 3). Not to mention that week after week you find a way to show NO behind the scenes footage of certain couples, but drool all over others.  Heads up – *I* am a regular viewer (soon to be former regular viewer) and you’re only listening to the squeaky, childish wheels.  I hope Derek wins an Emmy and tells you to shove it up your….

Anyway….how did we do? Well, Courtney and I barely made it through the first half of the show without falling asleep from boredom.

Heidi: Said Sean was going home and Ingo was in the bottom two OR there would be no bottom two and either Jacoby or Kellie would be there with Sean.

Courtney: Said Sean was going home with Ingo in position number two.

Vogue: Said Sean and Ingo in the bottom two with Sean leaving.

Winners?? Derek Hough for managing to always come out smelling like a rose with amazing f@#king talent, Zendaya for winning this show whether people vote for her or NOT, and Peanut for future super stardom – much deserved.

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 Season 16, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, I have to say, I’m about over this show. Sooo predictable. Zendaya not at the top for a couple weeks, so we better make sure she’s there tonight. Kellie was at the top for a couple weeks, we better make sure she has a fall. Derek starts talking creatively, prepare for the stupid from Len. Oh, and now Sean has to be the new Andy. Did he dance great? No. But neither did Ingo. Certainly not worthy of the points separating them.

It makes me sad, actually. I nearly forgot to turn the TV on tonight.  I can’t work up too much indignation over Kellie’s Paso because I knew in advance that that was how it was going to go. It’s Zendaya’s turn to be at the top of the leaderboard. Did she have the best dances of the night? I don’t actually REMEMBER.

I’m bored. Heads up DWTS – you’re losing me.

Numbers week 8

Anyway, Sean is pretty much toast and I don’t see any way around it. Yes, Ingo has been in the bottom two before, but Sean is significantly below him in score and he’s been in the bottom two also. What would it take for Sean to be safe?? He needs ONE of the following:

-        Sean needs 19,300 more votes per million votes cast than Ingo, OR;

-        Sean needs 32,200 more votes per million votes cast than Jacoby, OR;

-        Sean needs 41,800 more votes per million votes cast than Kellie, OR;

-        Sean needs 45,100 more votes per million votes cast than Aly, OR;

-        Sean needs 51,500 more votes per million votes cast than Zendaya.

Yeah, I don’t see that happening either. Now, his one hope, I think, is Ingo.  What does Ingo need to be safe tomorrow night? He needs ONE of the following things to happen:

-        Ingo needs for Sean to NOT get the 19,300 more votes per million votes cast than him, OR;

-        Ingo needs 12,900 more votes per million votes cast than Jacoby, OR;

-        Ingo needs 22,600 more votes per million votes cast than Kellie, OR;

-        Ingo needs 25,800 more votes per millon votes cast than Aly, OR;

-        Ingo needs 32,200 more votes per million votes cast than Zendaya.

I would go on, but I’m bored. If I turn out to be wrong, I’ll do a follow up post. In a nutshell, I predict Ingo and Sean in the bottom two with Sean going home. If not Sean, then Ingo.  If Ingo avoids the bottom two, then Jacoby will be there, but I kind of doubt it.  We’re about at that time in the season where they stop doing a “bottom 2” and start reverting to the “in no particular order” spiel. I would not be at all surprised to see a Jeopardy final two standing. For example, them saying Sean, you’re in jeopardy….then saying the same thing to Jacoby or Kellie and Ingo. No mention of bottom two, but putting Sean against someone other than Ingo….for the sake of Drama.

And then Sean goes home. Or Ingo, if Sean is lucky.

Louis Van Amstel And Anna Trebunskaya Weigh In On Dancing With The Stars Week 8

Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya weighed in on each of the Dancing With The Stars Week 8 performances at Good Morning America. Anna wrote this of Derek and Kellie’s Paso Doble….

Anna: That was very clever to tie the two dances together, an Angelic waltz and a Demonic Paso! The judges had a love fest but then Len spoils the party. The performance was amazing! Classical Paso- not so much… But who cares? With entertainment like that, we’ll buy it.

It was indeed amazing and the ‘dance of the night’ in my opinion. Would you all agree??

And here is Louis with the bottom line….

The Bottom Line

Louis: Great night. I must say though the judges have been quite off, in my opinion. I do have to say that’s my opinion and that doesn’t mean you have to agree. Both Ingo and Sean are in trouble. If it were up to the judges, Sean goes home. If it were up to last week’s results, Ingo goes home. My money is on Sean to go home because of his trio dance.

You can read the full blog at Good Morning America.

Also, Good Morning America may have a review or segment dedicated to the night. Look for it to be posted here.

Stay tuned! Heidi’s new Numbers and Predictions post is coming up! ;)

PureDWTS Season 16 Week 8 Interviews After Dance Night, Judges Talk, And More

Well, I’m still put out with the judges last night!! Apparently, George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet is put out as well as he asked several of the couples about what they thought of the judges bickering and opinions after the show. He also asked the couples on the twitter dance, the 300th episode, and why they think Dancing With The Stars has had such a successful run…..

First, George starts out telling Derek and Kellie he hasn’t seen so much fighting between the judges as he has this season. Derek usually knows when he’s going to get knocked down by one of them, but, he wasn’t expecting it last night being he put in some moves he thought Len would love (Derek explains this to E NEWS as well). On the twitter dance, Kellie and Derek are ready for whatever choice they get. Derek talks of the “moments” he’s had with Dancing With The Stars some of which include Kellie and hopes there will be more. Dancing With The Stars has been an incredible experience.

George thinks Jacoby’s Mom should dance next season. Jacoby says she “can get down”. When asked about the judges differences in opinion of their Paso Doble, Karina says it’s great and everyone has an opinion. She’s proud of their Paso Doble and what Jacoby did with it last night. They also explain which twitter dances they’d like and hope to get and Jacoby promises he “will get down” (lol) no matter what. Jacoby also reassures Raven Nation that he loves them even though he chose yellow and black for their costume colors.

Zendaya and Val are happy with their “30″! Zendaya says she was just having fun and not worrying about the dance. Val says they try to over prepare until Sunday so that Mondays are enjoyable and they can just focus just on the performance. As for the twitter dance, they are looking forward to the challenge even if it’s not a familiar dance for Val to teach. Val thinks Dancing With The Stars is successful because it brings family together and also because of the dancers, etc. He says Tom is the spine of the show (so true!) and he’s thankful to be a part of it all.

Mark and Aly are ok with the twitter dance idea. Aly wants the Afro Jazz. Aly thinks it’s the “packages” for why people love Dancing With The Stars. Mark’s favorite memories have been everything…the dancing and the friends he’s made. Aly is thankful for her fans and how nice they’ve been to her. Mark is proud of her improvement and their Tango.
