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 on InFANity

InFANity is a show on the TV Guide channel that I’d never heard of before – but this week they delve into Dancing with the Stars. The video is in five parts, each part covering different aspects of the show. Every part has a lot of clips of dances and interviews, past and present. Stars from every season are interviewed, as are the judges and the hosts. The only people we see, but don’t hear a lot from, are my favorites – The Pros.

Part 1 – About the Show and the Judges

Part 2 – The Stars and The Winners

Pure Dancing with the Stars Season 8 Voting Results

Last week I posted a poll to predict who will be the winner of Dancing with the Stars Season 8. The results from the voting is in and I must admit that I’m not surprised by the voting. That’s a bad sign for the show. Unless of course, the Pure Dancing with the Stars readers are wrong, but that has yet to happen on the big things.

Here are the results of the voting for winner of Dancing with the Stars season 8:
Gilles Marini – 43.14%
Shawn Johnson – 20.26%
Melissa Rycroft – 19.61%
Lil’ Kim – 9.80%
Chuck Wicks – 4.58%
Ty Murray – 1.31%
Lawrence Taylor – 1.31%

Looks like people have predicted that Cheryl Burke is going to take home another Mirror Ball Trophy. Gilles dancing definitely deserves it. We’ll see if his and Cheryl’s fans can do their part.
