DWTS Season 17, Week 5 – Let’s Recap Tonight’s Show!! (SPOILERS)

Every week I’m dismayed that people STILL don’t understand how this show works. The only thing different this week is that Tom told us up front that a female celeb was the low vote getter. THAT DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN A WOMAN IS GOING HOME!!  I don’t know how many more times I can explain this. :-)

The votes from last week AND the judges scores from tonight determine who goes home. Tom did NOT say a woman was going home, he said a woman was the low vote getter and MIGHT go home depending on the scores. All they are doing is ramping up the drama. If I were a betting woman, I would say Christina had the lowest number of votes, but they pimped and overscored her with a 28 and now someone else is going home. Like Bill or Brant. I would even bet that they low ball one of the women – Leah or Amber – for the sake of drama, and Bill or Brant still goes home.

I guess we will see soon. Discuss. :-)

ETA: My odds are looking kinda good….

ETA2: Well, now it looks like it might be Bill or Leah…but they may still get the shocker.  Hard to say.  LOL at the package about ringers.  Some people have very short memories.

ETA3: Liz does a kinda crappy Jive, gets overscored by Len after he lowballs Amber…and then is told she’s in jeopardy. Shit just got real.  Let’s see…put Liz, Amber and Christina in jeopardy and send Christina home. I’m often wrong, but I like to play. :-)

SPOILER Alert!!

This is where I gloat. Courtney and I have been saying for weeks that Christina and Liz were in trouble and both, along with Leah, were in jeopardy.

And Christina, with her high score of the night, was eliminated.

Discuss.
