Pure Dancing With The Stars 2011 Off Season Questionnaire #1

Ok Dancettes! Time for your first questionnaire after the wrap up of Season 13!! :D If interested, answer each question below to the best of your ability and have fun!!!

1. If the show were to make room for Carson Kressley on the show in some way, where would you like to see him placed?

2. My five top dances on Dancing With The Stars Season 13 were __________________. (This can include the Pro and Troupe dances as well)

3. After you saw Tony and Chynna’s “Mission Impossible” finale dance, did you think the viewers made the right decision in letting them go early? How about Mark and Kristin’s finale dance? Did watching them change your mind on their early elimination?

4. From all the celebrity contestants on Dancing With The Stars 14 and if there was a Congeniality Award, which one celebrity deserved it the most? (name only one)

Bonus question: How are you filling your Monday and Tuesday nights now that Season 13 is over?

My answers:

1. I’d want Carson to be a weekly fashion correspondent I think. I hope he dances in some new skits too in some way.

2. My top five dances from this last season in were; Derek and Ricki’s ‘Psycho’ dance, Val and Peta’s ‘Enchanted Melody’ dance (so beautiful!), Carson, Anna, and company’s ‘Vogue’ dance, Carson and Anna’s ‘Move Like Jagger’ dance, and Derek and Anna’s DaD. Honorable mention: Derek and Julianne’s Jive, Maks and Hope’s Quickstep

3. These finale dances didn’t change my mind any. Although Chynna, Tony, Mark, and Kristin were entertaining and it was good to see them again, they still went out at the right time in the competition I think. Chynna’s ballet moves were repetitive and they didn’t do anything different. Kristin’s legs were still a little messy.

4. Congeniality Award? CHAZ! What sealed it for me is when the entire cast would come to hug him after he was called safe each time. I don’t remember that ever happening before.

Bonus question: Monday night, we drove around and looked at Christmas lights going up in the area. Tuesday night’s TV slot has been replaced with GLEE and watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. :D Has this been an easy adjustment? No! lol

It’s National Dance Day All!!! In honor of the event, let’s have another little Questionnaire. Thanks again for all of your responses to these in the past. You are an inspiration always. Ready? Here we go and have the best weekend!

1. Have you taken dance lessons in your lifetime? If so, what kind?

2. My favorite kind of Ballroom dance is ____________________.

3. Do you have any of the dance/work out DVDs from the pros? If so, which ones do you have?

4. If you could have one wish come true for Season 13 on Dancing With The Stars, what would it be?

5. If you could have lunch with any of the pros and interview them currently, which one would you pick? What would you want to ask them?

6. Get up and dance or move in any shape or form for National Dance Day! If you can’t, then invision it instead. Write the dance song you invisioned dancing to and/or that you picked or you are going to pick. Later, I’ll put the dance songs you picked into a special music post!

Ok, I’ll start us off;

5. I’d love to interview any of the pros. They are all fascinating. It’s hard to pick just one…but, if I had to do so, it would Maks and then Derek. I’d ask them more on their youth and dancing and who were their greatest mentors, etc.

6. I am invisioning myself dancing to Madonna’s “Music” single Music - Music (with Brad Pitt, then Maks! :D ) and I plan to do so right after posting this post! :)

As promised, here is another Dancing With The Stars Questionnaire. Like the first questionnaire, answer these questions to best of your ability. Some of these question’s don’t have to necessarily be answered with your favorite dancer, but, with the best dancer to match each catagory. In fact, your least favorite dancer might fit into one of these catagories more than anyone else? Also, try to answer with just one dancer. But, you can list a few “honorable mentions” too. We also included an “off topic” question just for fun. I can’t wait to read your answers. Have fun!

1. Who do you feel is the most “compassionate” pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars?

2. Who do you feel is the most “creative” pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars?

3. Who is the “sexiest” pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars?

4. If your best friend were to hold a big birthday bash in your honor and they were to hire 4 pros or celebrites to exclusively dance, who would you want to dance?
