DWTS2013 Jack Osbourne: “At the end of the day, I’m my own test”

Hollyscoop previewed a new interview with Jack Osbourne and Life And Style magazine. When asked what his doctors thought of Jack doing Dancing With The Stars, Jack comments with, “Doctors always have concerns. At the end of the day, I’m my own test. They can’t tell me how I’m going to feel and there’s no rhyme or reason to the way MS kind of unfolds itself. They just tell me to roll with it.” You can read more on this interview at Life And Style Magazine.

PureDWTS 2013 Maks Chmerkovskiy Makes A Fan’s Dream Come True On Hello Ross (Video)

For the Maks Chmerkovskiy fans out there, this is fun! He makes another fan’s dream come true on “Hello Ross”.

I keep wondering if Maks will be on Dancing With The Stars this season in some way soon….in a pro number, helping Val and Elizabeth, or maybe guest judging like Julianne? Hmmm, time will tell.

DWTS Season 17, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Well, it’s Hollywood Week, kids and that means we have to have a bazillion different dance styles! Heaven forbid we actually compare the dancers to each other. The pairs of couples that do have the same dances are rather interesting, though. Leah and Valerie?? Amber and Christina?? Brant and Corbin?? Nicole and Bill E?? Then we have Elizabeth all by herself on the foxtrot, which will likely be square in her wheelhouse. I expect 10′s on that one. That leaves us with the guy with the bad knee who has…JIVE. Yeah, there’s nothing funny at all about these dances. :-)

Note: As usual, I have made a guess at the order. Camera blocking is back to its usual day, so maybe we’ll find out some of the dance order at some point today.

ETA1: So, Jack and Cheryl make it to later in the show. Not sure that means anything anymore, since there is no “last”, what with the elimination and all.

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Las Vegas Odds Going Into Week 3

Oh, I am in agony as I read the new odds at Sports Bovada!! :( I wish Bill Engvall was not placed last. I also don’t like how low they are putting Valerie. And again, I am just not feeling it with Leah Remini. How she could be getting 12/1 odds to win this season is beyond me? Crazy! Oh well, I’m going to take comfort knowing the odds makers were wrong in their placings last week even though I’m agreeing with their top 6 this week.

Corbin Bleu 2/1
Amber Riley 7/2
Christina Milan 7/2
Elizabeth Berkley 13/2
Jack Osbourne 10/1
Brant Daugherty 12/1
Leah Remini 12/1
Snooki 12/1
Bill Nye 50/1
Valerie Harper 50/1
Bill Engvall 100/1

Below are last week’s odds:

Amber Riley 2/1
Corbin Bleu 3/1
Elizabeth Berkley 11/2
Christina Milan 7/1
Snooki 15/2
Jack Osbourne 10/1
Brant Daugherty 14/1
Leah Remini 14/1
Valerie Harper 20/1
Keyshawn Johnson 33/1
Bill Engvall 100/1
Bill Nye 100/1

Let’s see what Miss Heidi and Court think. Please let us know what you think too in comments.

Courtney: Not a whole lot to say, except that I think Christina & Elizabeth still might be a bit too high – just judging from chatter amongst fans, these seem to be two contestants that may not be making a strong connection with viewers.  Good dancers, sure – but I’m not sure they’re very memorable entertainers.  Getting a sort of Audrina Patridge vibe off of Christina in particular – and a bit of a Chynna Phillips vibe off of Elizabeth.  I think Valerie should maybe be a bit higher, too – I think her story will keep her around for awhile, possibly longer than Brant or even Jack.  Don’t know what to make of Leah – I can’t decide if she’s getting a ton of votes or just enough to stay.

Heidi: I think one of the Christina/Elizabeth combo will go far, but one will be a shocking elimination, possibly in week 4. I don’t think there’s room for both of them, but once one of them is eliminated, the other could go to the finals. I could be wrong – lots hinges on the scoring and how badly the judges want them to stay.  I also think that if Leah gets a crap score at some point and doesn’t have the protection she did last week, she could beat both those other ladies out the door. I’m seeing a lot of support for BOTH the Bills and now Brant and Peta are kissing in the parking lot, so some crazy women will fall for that and they’ll be fine. :-) For a while.  Basically, I think the top four are right, minus EITHER Liz or Christina – I think one of those ladies’ spots might be taken from them by….Snicole. :-)
