Cast Thoughts Before DWTS All Star Premiere, More Rehearsal Footage Released

USA Today has a great piece up of the Dancing With The Stars All Stars “getting back into the fray”. The stakes are high, the pros are more competitive going into this season, and there will be a “greater push for first-week heroics”. Everyone wants that mirror ball. There are some quotes from Tom Bergeron and a few of the celebrities as well. They’ve been sizing each other up at the rehearsal studios and there is a lot of smack talk. More below and at USA Today. You can also read a breakdown on the couples at this USA Today link. Also, don’t miss more rehearsal footage released at AOL.com. A MUST SEE if you haven’t seen them yet!

“You have people who were the stars in their respective seasons,” says host Tom Bergeron. “With the stakes this high, there will be sweated spray tan all over the dance floor.”

The toll is all the greater with the passing of time. Lachey, now 36, realizes how long ago he won his Season 2 championship. “I’m six years older,” he says. “My knees are six years older, and my back. I’ve come to learn Advil is my friend.”

For every dancer there is a fascinating subplot as well. Marini will renew his dance rivalry with Shawn Johnson, who beat him out for the championship in Season 8. (“He’s coming after me, but I wouldn’t underestimate anybody,” says Johnson).

Meanwhile, Fatone and Ono are renewing their Season 4 duel in which Ono walked home with the trophy on the final night. “I got my eye on everyone,” says Fatone. “But I just don’t want Apolo to win again.”

The competitive flames rise even higher as most of the teams practice at the same L.A. location for the first time. “You’re trying to size everyone up,” says Fatone. “There’s a lot of smack talk. It’s highly entertaining.”

On result-night Tuesday, one All Star will be sent home. The fear of being the initial casualty calls for even a greater push for first-week heroics.

“Imagine how horrible it will be to the first person voted off. It’s not going to be fun for that person,” Bergeron says with a laugh. “I’ll try not to enjoy it too much.”

It is going to be horrible. I’m going to feel sorry for who ever goes home the first time. I wonder who it will be? Any last minute guesses? I’m going to guess it will be Melissa.

DWTS Season 14 – Dancing by the Numbers Wrap Up

Blah blah All-Star Season blah blah.  :-)  That’s months away yet and I don’t find myself interested in it. Yet. I’m sure that will change. Sooner or later.  I’m still thinking about the season that ended a mere two weeks ago. Because that’s who I am. :-)

So, in looking at the way the show turned out, I saw a few people discussing what William’s REAL voting block was like. Some had a tendency to say “Oh, Katherine must have been killing it” or “Maybe William didn’t have it all along and he was getting by on margins” – well, being the nerd that I am, I just have to go back and LOOK and see if there are any conclusions to be drawn.

The final scores ended up being very close, with only one point separating Donald and William from Katherine.  In order to win, Donald or William needed 3,740 more votes per million votes cast to get by Katherine. Obviously, Donald got those votes because he ended up beating her. William, on the other hand, didn’t get those votes because he came in third place. Pretty simple, right?

That’s not to say that William WASN’T getting more votes than Katherine, because he could have been – he just couldn’t cover the spread.  I’m inclined to believe that William was pretty solidly in third place (and no better) all along – because of the pimping or in spite of the pimping, take your pick. Why do I think this??  Well, 3,740 is chump change when it comes to votes, but he couldn’t get past Katherine. While Katherine was a beautiful dancers, she was quite over hyped in the latter weeks as well (by the judges) – but she and Mark together were also very likeable.

The previous week, Katherine, William and Donald all had to get past Maria by the following margins:

-          Katherine needed just over 13k per million votes cast to get past Maria, AND;

-          Donald needed 8,700 votes per million votes cast to get past Maria, AND;

-          William needed 4,350 votes per million votes cast to get past Maria

They all did that and Maria went home – so it seems to me that she was fourth place all along. Those aren’t huge numbers.  However, there IS an argument to be made that Katherine was helped A LOT by her “back spasm” and the fact that people still think someone is safe with the high score. Sure, that could have helped Katherine…and maybe it did.  It’s hard to say for sure. But it seems to me that if people got lax on voting for Maria because she had the high score, it would have been William in trouble and not Katherine.  Because at the time it mattered the most, and with no sympathy vote in play, Willy couldn’t get past Katherine.  For that reason, I think the winner, 2nd place and 3rd place were pretty solid.

SPOILERS!!! DWTS Season 14…And The Winner Is???

And the hyperbole plays on. They are really trying hard to sell this season as the best ever, with CAI telling Katherine she had one of the best dances ever and Len claiming that Willy’s Cha Cha was right up there with the best in 14 seasons, we have them adding to the hyperbole using Tom as a mouthpiece. Spare me, gang, you’re just insulting my intelligence now.

Okay, with the spoiler space for twitter dispensed with…..WHOOOO HOOO!!  Okay. Had to get that out of my system.  CONGRATULATIONS TO DONALD AND PETA!!!!!

Here are the official standings:

Third Place: William and Cheryl

Second Place: Katherine and Mark

Winner of Season 14:  Donald and Peta

Great finale, all in all – all the returning contestants did great. And may I toot my own horn?? I called Donald back in week one or two. ;-)

How did we all do this week?  Well…

Heidi: predicted Donald as the winner, William as second with Katherine as third

Courtney: predicted Donald as the winner, William as second and Katherine third.

Vogue: Ever the rogue, Vogue said that Donald would win, Katherine would take second and Willy would come in third.

And Vogue gets it right once again!!

Gang, don’t tune out right away. We’ll have a few episodes of Cheesecake, a team retrospective look at Season 14 (warts and all), and a numbers post looking at the entire season, attempting to answer the question of William Levy – if he hadn’t been constantly over scored, would he have gone home a lot sooner?? Or did the general audience get wise to the pimping like my little sister did??

DWTS Season 14, The Finale – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, as it stands right now and based on scores alone, it’s anyone’s game. Such a small margin going into tomorrow night. But really, Donald’s freestyle?? Would have won the competition any other season.  Any other season that didn’t have the ridiculous pimping and fawning over another contestant who is totally unworthy of the praise.

Please, Cheryl – take a break. You did William NO favors with that totally predictable freestyle. Donald wasn’t the only one who totally called it. My twitter feed predicted the whole dance before it aired…to the point that I died laughing at the shirt ripping and the faux standing intercourse on the floor.  Lord, Len picks a great time to agree with me. I would have given it an 8, though. He was too generous.  If William wins this he will be the most undeserving winner in history.

Katherine did a great job on both dances, with the exception of some awkwardness on the lifts during the freestyle and a tiny bit of softness in the legs during the Paso. I don’t think either dance was worth a 30, but, like Courtney said, the judges really hosed her on the dance selection. They gave all their favors to William…how many cha cha’s has he learned now?? Three or four? And even then, Cheryl’s choreo didn’t stand up to Peta’s and Mark’s. Me thinks someone is relying on the sex factor and over scoring to carry her through.  Interestingly, I saw Katherine on E! News and they asked her about taking clothes off and she said, “We’re not about taking off clothes. It’s about the dancing for us.”  Now, those of you who have been reading this blog for a long time know that I would normally skewer someone for that sort of commentary for its subtle diss of another contestant.  Not this season. Not when even Len is calling a freestyle “predictable”. The truth hurts, kids, and Katherine and Donald ARE about the dancing. William and Cheryl?? Not so much.  They’ve gone to the same well too many times, and if there is any justice they won’t go home with the trophy.

Anyway…

The Judges Scores and Percentages

Place Celebrity Score Percentage
1. Katherine 60 33.71
2. William 59 33.15
3. Donald 59 33.15

 

So, as you can see, there is only a tiny margin going into Tuesday’s final dance.  Of course, this dance is also scored and has the ability to change the game entirely. My question is – just how invested are the judges in William?? Do they want him to win badly enough to seriously skew it AFTER everyone has voted?? On CAI and Bruno’s part, I would say yes. So I’m putting all my faith in Len. :-)

In order for either William or Donald to overtake Katherine and win, at this point, either or both of them need to get 5,620 more votes per million votes cast. That’s a very small number.  Discounting the final dance for a minute, if both men beat that spread, then Katherine comes in third.  Then it becomes a race between the two men and whoever gets the most votes win. Period.

Except not period. :-)  The judges have one more shot at screwing it up.  So, let’s play a game of “what if?”  There are a couple different ways it could go tomorrow.  Option 1 – the judges cop out and give everyone a 30.  If they do that, then the margin between Katherine and the two men decreases to 3,735 votes per million votes cast. A virtual tie.

Option 2 is one of the two men chokes and gets…let’s say a 28. Since I think that man is more likely to be Donald (based on history), that’s what we’ll go with. If it happens to William, just substitute his name here.  So, if Donald gets a 28 and William and Katherine get 30s??  For Donald to WIN, he would need both of the following:

-          Donald would need 7,520 more votes per million votes cast than William, AND;

-          Donald would need 11,280 more votes per million votes cast than Katherine.

After his freestyle, I think Donald can do it. I just hope he doesn’t have to.  If the positions are reversed, I think William can likely do it as well.

Option 3 is the one where the judges just totally level the playing field. That is, the two men both get 30 and Katherine gets a 29. Of course, if that happens it’s a tie ball game and the high vote getter wins. It certainly should be Donald in first place, Katherine in second place with William taking third. Whether that happens or not I have no good idea.

Of course, there is one last, thoroughly repulsive option.  That is the option where Donald and Katherine are both given something less than 30 while William gets a 30. If that number is a 29, then Katherine and Willy are tied and Donald needs 3,760 to catch them. Of course, that is chump change and Donald should be able to do it based on his freestyle.  But if they get 28s?? If that happens, then in judges scores William is in first place, Katherine in second and Donald in third.  For Donald to win, he would need both of the following:

-          Donald needs 3,790 more votes per million votes cast than Katherine, AND;

-          Donald needs 7,580 more votes per million votes cast than William.

Should be easy enough.  For Katherine to win in that scenario she needs BOTH of the following:

-          Katherine needs Donald to not cover the spread, AND;

-          Katherine needs 3,790 more votes per million votes cast than William.

I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see either of those things happening.  In that scenario, for William to win he simply needs for neither Donald nor Katherine to cover the spread.

So, after looking at all the various scenarios, nothing has changed my mind. I think it comes down to William and Donald. Which of the two men wins depends heavily on the final dance. Unless Donald really blows it and gets underscored relative to William (again) I think Donald wins.

I’m going to say:

Donald – Winner
William – Second Place
Katherine – Third Place.

I would love it if Willy got knocked to third place. I also wouldn’t mind at all if Katherine were to win – but I don’t think so.

SPOILERS!!! DWTS Season 14, Week 9 – Who’s Going to the Finale???

Well, there is a new pro on my least favorite list and it’s a woman. Guess. Which female pro was just nasty to both Derek and Donald, while claiming it doesn’t matter if William misses a step cuz he’s just so wonderful??

Delusional, thy name is Cheryl. Please, for your own reputation, take a break next season. Thank you.

In other news, they are doing the all star season, but it’s not how some of us hoped – it’s not going to be all good dancers, necessarily, but “controversial” characters in addition to past winners and others. Boo. Hope Derek is doing something else. I really don’t need to see Kate Gosselin or someone who won before win again.

Okay, white space to avoid spoilage done, who got eliminated?? Well, as soon as they called Katherine safe you had to know it was going to be Maria and Derek.  Because I am just too good this season.  :-)

Your finalists are somewhat unexciting, in my view, but I hope that either Katherine or Donald wins…now I just have to figure out who my votes go to to ensure William doesn’t win. And I think that person is Donald. As much as I like Katherine.

How did we do??

Heidi: I said it would be Maria and Katherine, with Katherine leaving. Second choice, obviously, was Maria leaving.

Courtney: Court had Katherine in the bottom position with William one up from her.

Vogue: Voguey said that Katherine was going home with Maria as a possibility.

Warning….I’ve had enough of crazy assed fans. So, if you are a Derek fan looking to excessively bitch and moan, I might delete you, even though I’m a Derek fan. If you are a fan of someone else only coming in here to gloat or cheer them leaving? I may just delete your ass too.  It’s week 9 and I’m tired of fangirls. Period.

DWTS Season 14, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, last night was interesting and somewhat unexpected. I thought for sure they would low ball Maria and Donald to protect Willy. So, what is the deal? Either Maria and Derek are getting good buzz (read: ratings), or Willy is getting an ass ton of votes and no longer needs help. Or both. Mission accomplished. I would be mad over the over scoring except that every single couple was over scored (except Donald)…so it’s all relative. Katherine might have been if not for the weird issues at the end of her second dance. She’s so gorgeous and was so upset that I’m upset for her. I hope she’s okay.

Part of me thinks that perhaps the stress of all the dances up to this point is at the heart of Katherine (and Derek’s) problems. Rarely will you hear me say this, so pay attention. I agree with Maks nearly 100% on his most recent TV Guide Blog. I think the producers have lost sight of the fact that these are actual people involved in this show and not just ratings points.  When you have to start learning 3 full dances essentially 8 to 9 weeks after dancing for the first time it’s asinine. This is too much even for professional dancers – and these professionals are dancing with amateurs, which increases their own risk of injury. You think that Derek, Mark and others aren’t up to their usual standards in choreography? Well, what do you expect when by week 8 they have each choreographed 16 dances?? That is absolutely ridiculous.  Attention producers; we have now reached a point where the quality of dances suffers, people are getting hurt and, really, it’s not just much fun anymore. Jerkwads.  <— Heidi being polite and not using her words of choice.

Anyway, I could go on all night.

The Judges Scores and Percentages

Place Celebrity Score Percentage
1. Maria 59 25.65
2. William 58 25.22
3. Donald 57 24.78
4. Katherine 56 24.35

Well, on the face of it, it appears that Katherine is in trouble. And it’s warranted, based on her dances. But part of me is having some trouble with this, mainly because it just didn’t go how I expected it to go. So, I don’t know if I should be suspicious or if I should just take it on face value. But really, Katherine didn’t do all that well. So, I dunno. I thought Maria was over scored on her Jive, but I liked it. I thought William was overscored on both dances…and I was bored on both of them. Donald, I feel, is a much better dancer than William is and yet can’t get the scores that William does…but I don’t think he needs them. Like Courtney, I think he’s safe as hell. So, all things considered, no one was terribly screwed over and EVERYONE was overscored at one point, so it all comes out in the wash.

Katherine is at the bottom of the leaderboard and is now one of the walking wounded (and really, can Katherine, Maria or Derek actually DO a freestyle at this point?) – what does she need in order to stick around? Well, surprisingly, a good bit. Yeah, we have two dances…but we also have fewer dancers which means that the spread opens up a bit again.  Katherine needs ONE of the following in order to stick around:

-          Katherine needs 4,350 more votes per million votes cast than Donald, OR;

-          Katherine needs 8,700 more votes per million votes cast than William, OR;

-          Katherine needs 13,050 more votes per million votes cast than Maria.

That last one might just be the nail in Katherine’s coffin.  I still believe that it was between Katherine and Maria for the finale and those scores may have done her in. I don’t think she can beat either Donald or William – although I would very much love for her to be in the finale over William. She may be a technically better dancer than those left, but she is also the dancer who connects to her partner, the dance and the audience the least out of those left. And, like it or not, that COUNTS. So, it’s a toss up.

What about William and Donald? Well, I think Donald is safe, but let’s look how easy it would be for him to stay. Donald needs ONE of the following in order to make the finale:

-          Donald needs for Katherine to NOT cover the spread, OR;

-          Donald needs 4,350 more votes per million votes cast than William, OR;

-          Donald needs 8,700 more votes per million votes cast than Maria.

Personally, I think he’s getting all of the above. I don’t see him NOT winning this show if this sort of scoring keeps up. Does he have it in the bag?? Well, the judges and their crack pipes will have the ultimate say. Carrie Ann Innaba actually said, out loud, that Katherine’s quickstep was the best dance she’s seen on the show. That sort of hyperbole and idiotic statement can influence her own score, so if she scores Willy with her loins next week and Donald has one tiny slip?? Fuggetaboutit.  :::sigh:::

William. Really, people complain about Maria being overscored when William is in the top 4? Silly. Anyway, William will likely be, unfortunately, safe. Where there are two judges scoring with genitalia, there are likely to be some cray cray female’s doing exactly the same thing.  William needs the following to be safe:

-          William needs Katherine to not cover the spread (8,700 votes), OR;

-          William needs Donald to not cover the spread (4,350 votes), OR;

-          William needs 4,350 more votes per million votes cast than Maria.

Unfortunately, I think William beats everyone but Donald. I would SO love to be wrong and see him get the boot, but I don’t see it happening, mainly due to Katherine.

Maria? I think she’s safe, but you just never know. With the games that the producers and the judges have been playing this season, it’s entirely possible that they are setting Maria up for a shocking elimination tomorrow night. But I don’t think Katherine can get those votes. Hard to say. Honestly, it hurt to watch Maria and Derek dance – I can’t believe Derek did some of what he did with Maria in either dance, after reading about how he was hurt.  Geez, people, yer killin’ me.  Anyway, what would it take for Maria to be eliminated?? ALL of the following have to happen:

-          Katherine has to get 13,050 more votes per million votes cast than Maria, AND;

-          Donald has to get 8,700 more votes per million votes cast than Maria, AND;

-          William has to get 4,350 more votes per million votes cast than Maria.

Donald and William are probably doing that with some ease, but Katherine? I don’t think so. As a result, I think we still come down to Katherine and Maria, with Katherine going home. If not Katherine, then Maria. Being in the top spot this late in the game can lead to complacency and complacency is trouble. I wouldn’t be shocked by Maria OR Katherine.

Another week, another set of weirdness.  Dance Center and Chris Brown….sorta funny and sorta singing. :-)  Who got eliminated??

Sixth Place: Roshon and Chelsie

Fifth Place: Melissa and Maks

Actually quite bummed that Melissa is gone, particularly after that cigarette comment in the confessional. :-)  Also have a new found appreciation for Val after his cussing after hearing Len’s score for Bollywood. :-) I’m pretty easy.

How did we do??

Heidi: I said that it would be Roshon and Katherine. My second choice was Roshon and Melissa and my third choice was Melissa and Maria.

Courtney: Court said Roshon was leaving for sure with either Melissa or Maria as the other person; Katherine was a long shot.

Vogue: Said Melissa and Roshon rather unequivocally :-)

And the winner is: Vogue, for not waffling one bit. Courtney and I can’t say the same. :-)  Although, there are no real winners here.

DWTS Season 14, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers

Pardon me while I rant for a while.  I wrote this first section right after the show and to say I was pissed of might be an understatement. :-)

Gee, I would really love that I so completely NAILED what the judges were going to do last night, if it didn’t suck so terribly BAD.  Seriously, Maria gets hosed by Len (twice), Roshon has a comeback arc, Wee Willy gets high scores of the night…the only thing I missed on was Katherine.  I cry foul. I hate being right. Only other thing I was wrong about was that it seemed it wasn’t a group effort but that Len was the designated ass last night.

In no universe was Willy’s first dance that much better than Maria’s – Len smokes crack. Then the second dance? Sure, Derek took a risk but I thought that dance was so cute and so creative…but I would understand an 8 from Len (since he lacks vision), but a 7?? Get real.  Me thinks Maria was getting the votes last week and Willy wasn’t.  Derek knows what he’s doing….he’s done it before. But a 7 and an 8?? You know what else? I wouldn’t even have minded the 7…if they had scored Willy realistically and that 8 for Maria’s V. Waltz had been a 9 like it should have been. That 30 for William was out of the park ridiculous.

And a word to those of you who claim that Len judges Derek’s choreo and it’s not fair – well, what did he do last night, eh?? Any hypocrites willing to go on record??  Just one of many things that annoy me. I personally think that the choreo is part of the package and that it goes to showcasing the celeb – but I see this complaint far too many times from people who won’t say a word about last night when Len made it EXTREMELY clear that he was judging the choreo – that’s all he talked about.  It does work both ways – if you hate judging on the choreo, you kinda have to hate it when it goes against Derek as well as when it works for him. Otherwise…

Then again, Cheryl clearly isn’t being judged on her choreo…at all.

Now let’s discuss Donald, shall we?? I dare you to play his two dances at the same time as William’s and tell me that William was the more deserving dancer. In what Universe?? Not only is Donald more enjoyable, but he’s actually the better mover!! Especially look at William’s trio dance – look at his pancake hands and how he has a tendency to stick his ass out. Then compare their showmanship – Donald wins hands down. Someone explain to me how Donald comes out two points behind in this deal?? He’s a far more exciting dancer and shouldn’t that be part of the deal?? Donald should have had the perfect score last night.

Really, Katherine is sweet but pretty boring when it comes to dancing…but she’s also ten times the dancer William is – please remove your genitalia from the scoring criteria. Thanks. If Katherine goes home tomorrow so that William can stay in order to build your Spanish viewers in preparation of the Univision deal, it’s on your heads.

Attention judges and TPTBWTHUCA – when *I* want to turn the channel and start praying for Derek to not come back to your show?? YOU got problems.  You’re really putting me off this show, and I would consider myself die hard (Derek or no Derek), considering how much time I spend on this damn blog.

Okay, now that that’s off my chest…
