Ah, it’s that time of year again. The time when everyone makes preseason predictions and picks favorites…and it all goes to hell in one dance. :-) Well, my preseason guess of JR Martinez as the one to beat holds true. Very happy with Ricki and Chynna, although I am afraid that Chynna won’t kill the latin and may fade into the wood work. How much do I love Carson? Let me count the ways. :-)
Anyway, I’m very afraid that no one is going to like my numbers – *I* don’t even like my numbers. :-) But they are what they are. By the way, Maks fans, Tony fans and Karina fans missed out if they didn’t check out Ricki’s live Ustream tonight as all of those pros made appearances. :-) You might want to check it in upcoming weeks.
Okay, so what do the numbers say??
The Judges Scores and Percentages
Well, first off, I think that Chynna, JR, Hope and Ricki are safe to dance next week. BUT, Chynna and Hope need to make a better impact next week – Hope needs to let Maks lead, and Chynna needs to have another great dance and get more personality. Like Courtney, I’m getting a real Audrina vibe from her and dancing can only save you for so long. JR did a beautiful job, as did Ricki, and I don’t think anyone will forget them. At least, I hope not.
The middle of the pack?? Well, it’s freakin’ insane. There’s a whole bunch of meh with a hearty dose of WTF?? Of the middle of the pack, Chaz and Carson are the standouts – lovely surprises both of them. And I must say that her partnership with Chaz is making me into a Lacey fan. And how much did I love that show of support by the male pros after Chaz danced and they’re getting ready to head back to the floor?? Very, very much. Derek and Maks stood out to me as two of many who gave supportive back slaps. Read more..
