PureDWTS Season 23, Court Rants: Why I Don’t Really Care About the Troupe

Let me preface this rant with this: I know everyone is excited for the season to start.ย  I know that there hasn’t been a whole lot to report (yet). So I’m willing to cut people a little bit of slack – I think we’re all just looking for stuff to discuss until the next piece of intel falls into our laps. What’s puzzling to me is that of all things there is to talk about, I’m seeing an inordinate number of questions about the troupe – a fixture on the show that I find to be of little consequence anymore.

Not sure if it’s just not as exciting to talk about the pros that we’ve seen year after year or if people really do feel passionately about the troupe, but I guess it’s just hard for me to relate when people seem very invested in whether or not [insert dancer here] is going to be in the troupe again or might get a shot at pro a certain season.ย  It’s of such little interest to me that I don’t even really actively seek spoilers about the troupe in the pre-season – I’d rather focus my efforts on the pros and their celeb partners, so you’ll have to forgive me if I respond with a bit of frustration when I get questions on Twitter about “Have you heard who’s in the troupe?” or “Do you think so-and-so will get promoted to pro this season?”

So for those of you who don’t understand why the troupe is not all that important to me (and Heidi, really), I give you this: the 7 reasons why Court doesn’t care about the troupe. Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, THE FINALE NIGHT TWO – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

I’m back, I’ve watched the showโ€ฆ And what in the hell was Val thinking? ย  It started out OK and then it turned into a bad parodyย of Derek’s fox trot with Nicole that happened in like week three or four combined with the dumbed down version of his Singin’ in the Rain with Bethany. Good lord. ย What happened to the good old days when bad freestyles actually got like 8s?? Cuz that was bad…and everyone was pretending it was great. How annoying can you get? Read more..

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 22, THE FINALE – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

I am on the road and hopefully will be in my hotel room in time to watch the show…if not, Courtney will hopefully jump in. I can’t decide if me missing the show would be a good thing…or a bad thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

T-minus 30 minutes…

I found out I can’t watch live, so Courtney will be at the helm this evening. Before I go, here’s the dance order per George Pennachio:

  1. Ginger
  2. Nyle
  3. Paige

Court reporting for duty ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m currently trying to tweet, take notes for the power rankings, update this post, and make a gender reveal cake for a coworker.ย  Needless to say, I’m getting pretty adept at spreading myself too thin these days…thank god the show is only an hour tonight!

Erin looks kinda matronly in that dress tonight.ย  Really ages her.ย  I’m just kinda over Ginger, so none of this package is really resonating with me.

WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH???!!! What a bizarre, uninspired, un-cohesive mess.ย  It was like they did a half-assed freestyle (that was really just cherry-picked props and moves from other routines this season) and then decided to call it a contemporary.ย  And the judges are seriously gonna gush about how great it was?! Good god, I’m not sure I want to see what else is coming…

Pleasantly surprised that Carrie Ann & Bruno gave it 9’s (although I think that was even kind) while Len falls in line with the narrative and gives it a 10.ย  And I’ve already heard enoughย  about Ginger’s back spasms to last a lifetime.

Errrr…that was a pretty rough quickstep from Nyle.ย  Felt like he never got 100% on top of the beat, and was bouncing out of sync with Peta.ย  I really wish she had given him a better growth arc over the course of the season.

Paige just schooled both Ginger & Nyle on how to do a redemption dance. Mark also showed Peta & Val what a good choreographer can do.

Len’s critique is utter bullshit. Guess we know who he’s been instructed to prop up…*cough*GINGER*cough*…but 29/30 is still good.

Val, I’mma give you a piece of advice, free of charge: if you yourself do not know how to tap dance with any level of proficiency, DO NOT CHOREOGRAPH A FREESTYLE THAT HAS ANY LENGTH OF TAP DANCING IN IT!!!! That was almost comically bad to watch – Val flailing around doing a tap dance pantomime. The rest was pretty white bread, nothing remarkable. But it’ll prolly get a 30…

…and it does.ย  I guess the best we can hope for at this point is all 3 freestyles getting a perfect 30, and the judges tossing it to the audience. If they undeservingly shaft Paige, though, I’m guessing they’re reeeeallllly pushing hard for Ginger to win.

Not 100% sure how I felt about Nyle’s freestyle. He danced it well, but I feel like it’s just yet another angsty routine we’ve seen from him. Wish we could have seen something more fun, upbeat, and celebratory.

“Best dance on the show ever”, Carrie Ann? Bitch PLEASE. Go smoke some more crack.

Paige, PLEASE knock this outta the park…

…and she does ๐Ÿ™‚ Just lovely.ย  Anyone else get the impression that we may have just witnessed Mark’s last freestyle on DWTS, though? I have never seen him get so emotional.

And now I’m stepping away for a bit, kids – look for the power rankings in a bit.ย  Also got a cake to finish.ย  Aaaaack.
