Pamela Anderson And Tristan MacManus Talk About Their DWTS Elimination On The View

Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus were on The View today!! It’s good to see Pam again and in better spirits. I love Pam. I forgive her for not showing up for some of the interviews now. She may be getting her wish for doing Broadway soon too. Also, check out Tristan’s hair. I LIKE! What do you think?

To see more interviews after their elimination this week on Dancing With The Stars, see this previous posting.

Dancing with the Stars Season 15 Stats Class: Week 1’s Elimination – Pamela Anderson

The first eliminated couple of the season: Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus

But really was this a surprise? Taking a look at some of the past data and

Back in June, we asked you the reader to choose your favorite celebrities across the seasons and I had recently posted the results of the popularity polls of celebrities taken from your favorites. On this list it did not appear that Pamela was in the Top 20 of the female celebrities… so already just from those summer polls alone there were signs that Pamela probably wouldn’t have the popularity vote by her side.

She was given the lowest score of the night on Monday… and even my elimination predictions have her not just towards the bottom of the list… but in last place as well. The Week 1 Score Predictions had her scored second the last ranking just above Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (who scored far higher on Monday night).

So yeah, she didn’t really have a lot going for her here no matter how you look at it.

So enough with what happened during Week 1… let’s look back with her time prior to Season 15. How did she fare and did she even stand a chance? Well hard to say. So what I did was go back in time and looked at her actual scores during her time on Season 10 and compared it with how her score predictions would have looked prior to Season 10. Then for the hell of it I also added the scores predicted for Season 15 using the same dances from Season 10… and let’s say the results were fascinating…

First the table:

Looking at the numbers alone she was all over the spectrum. There were some dances she scored higher than… while others she scores below… and still others right on par. But if we were to take the average score from the predicted scores of Season 10 vs the actual scores…
Season 10 Average Prediction: 21.708
Season 10 Average Actual: 22.286

Almost a whole half-point difference. Which sometimes doesn’t seem like a lot, but in the world of stats and mathematics is a hell of a whole lot.

So how does this look like on a graph?

Her actual scores from Season 10 appear to be all over the spectrum when compared to the Season 10 predicted scores… while when compared with the Season 15 predictions are a little more in line…

Interesting.

Now I wouldn’t go so far as to say whether she was over or under scores in any capacity mainly because I have to rewatch the episodes to know that… but I am kind of curious to see how the other celebrities stack up in hindsight when comparing their actual scores with the various predictions.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

All Star Cast Celebrates It’s Premiere at Dancing With The Stars After Party

Pictured above is Karina Smirnoff, Mark Ballas, and Peta Murgatroyd. The three pro dancers along with much of the cast (and previous cast members like Maria Menounos as well) was seen at a ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Premiere After Party Monday night held at the Grove Shopping Center in Hollywood, California. You can view loads of pictures of them at Zimbio Pictures and Getty Images.

PopTVDotCom was able to capture some footage of the arriving as well. Some of them comment on their dances…

Carrie Anne Inaba Breaks Down Dancing With The Stars Premiere Night (Blog, Videos)

Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Anne Inaba talked about breaking off of her engagement on Access Hollywood. She also breaks down some of the dances from the first week of the show. She was sad to see Pamela go and thinks she’s “magical”. She was a little underwhelmed by Helio and Apolo’s performances, but, she thinks they can make some great transformations. Much more below…though warning, Kit and Billy ask some annoying questions. I sometimes wonder if they even watch the show and instead just play off media headlines? :-?

Carrie Anne was also on Extra last night. If we find some footage, we’ll be sure to post it. She breaks down the first show at her new blog at Ladies Home Journal as well. Below is a take of her favorite moments from Monday night…

Here are some of my personal favorite moments from the season 15 opener:
•When Tom cut me off mid-comment because the audio went out I had to explain that I had more to say so our audience wouldn’t be confused. He just won an Emmy so I’ll give him a break.
•When Helio Castroneves came into the ballroom during the commercial break, he got a standing ovation. He’s got such a bright light in him—he’s like a walking smile and it was so wonderful to see him out there again on our dance floor.
•When Shawn Johnson danced a very modern Foxtrot with Derek. It’s a new partnership but a very dynamic one.
•When Gilles did his Foxtrot with Peta. Again, another new pairing and a very sexy one indeed—just ask any of the women in our audience. He’s like a dancing Jon Hamm or Clark Gable.
•Seeing Drew Lachey and Kelly Monaco again was a lot of fun. I directed the first Dancing With The Stars live tour so I worked closely with Drew. It’s like seeing your family again, except you have to judge their dancing.
•It’s always something of a magical moment to see Pamela Anderson on the dance floor. She really is an icon. I hope she puts more time into her rehearsals. It think a lot of people like her but she’s got to catch up.
•And then there was Emmitt. It felt like the season finale—a huge celebration of dance.

When you watch them all dance you remember very quickly why some of them won and the magic they all brought to the dance floor. But they do have very different styles and attributes which is what makes this season so dynamic. And let me say that without a doubt, it’s going to get very competitive in the ballroom very soon, so be warned! This season is going to be a good one!

Saying Good-bye To Pamela Anderson So Soon On DWTS All Stars Elimination Interviews

Well, we all knew the first elimination would be sad to see happen! It’s too bad the producers didn’t work it out to have the first elimination in the second week. Though, in the end, as Court and Heidi have posted, this would mean more “double eliminations” along the way. Anyway, here’s to Pamela Anderson and wishing her much luck with her career. I’ll always remember her for bringing so much sensualism to Dancing With The Stars and having this way of mixing the show up. And wow, those long legs and her splits….not to mention she has one of the best heads of long hair ever. Let’s hope Pam snags the Broadway number she’s dreaming on because she is indeed more than just a pretty face and she can “dance” too despite what happened Monday night. I love her animal rescue work as well!!

With that said, here is she and Tristan MacManus on Jimmy Kimmell last night. Note how Jimmy highlights Pam’s special way of doing the splits too. :)

Also, below is Tristan by himself with On The Red Carpet. He said Pam was disappointed and he apologized for her not being able to talk with George. On their elimination and in Tristan’s famous words, “it is what it is”.

We hope to have more elimination coverage of them a little later. Picture above courtesy of On The Red Carpet. You can view more pictures of them and the whole cast here.

ADDING: Here is Tristan on Access Hollywood….

ADDING #2: You can watch Tristan on Good Morning America today here. He said he really enjoyed Pam, her sense of humor, and more. They ask him who he thinks has the edge this season. Tristan is not sure, but, he’s rooting for Val and Kelly to win. He’d realy like to see them do well.

SPOILERS!! DWTS Season 15, Week 1 – Who’s Goin’ Home??

A bit of white space so Twitter doesn’t spoil it accidentally….As expected due to the low scores, Pam and Tristan are exiting the ballroom in week 1.  Chin up Tristan fans – we’ll probably see him in so many pro dances that we’ll be sick of him by week 4, much like Val last season. :-)

Did everyone note Brooke using the words “bottom two” ?? I sure did, and Drew was the other half of the bottom two. Step it up, Anna. Of course, Brooke could have bungled that, but that would be a big bungle.

How’d we do??  Well….

Heidi: Said Pam was leaving with a outside chance of Melissa, Drew or Helio

Courtney:  Also said Pam

Vogue: Said Bristol was on her way out.

For a change, Courtney and I score.

Dancing with the Stars Season 15, Week 1 – Dancing by the Numbers

All in all, a great start to the All Star season!! A whole bunch of fantastic dancing, with few exceptions, no doubt. And yet…we still have a couple instances of really hinky scoring and other hijinks. So, we’ll give Shawn and Kirstie extremely bad songs for foxtrots, give Gilles and other men PERFECT songs and then we’ll be extra sure and not only pimp Emmett, but overscore him as well. I love Gilles and think he was overscored relative to the other couples, but Emmett?? I smell fish. I’ll just echo Courtney and add…Gilles works for ABC, and Emmett is a football player scoring high on MONDAY Night. The female football audience?? Yeah, that’s not suspicious at all. :::rolls eyes:::

But, after all my moaning….those scores are essentially irrelevant because the exactly wrong person was the low scorer and by a significant margin. Anyway…

The Judges Scores and Percentages

As you probably deduced all on your own, Pam and Tristan are in real trouble. The judges were absolutely right when they called her out on her lack of preparation – seems clear they are paying attention to studio time this season, like they have occasionally in the past, and it’s going to be noted if you don’t do well AND you weren’t putting in the time. It’s the All Star Season. It’s to be expected.

Anyway, what does Pam have to do in order to survive to dance again? Pray. And hope that someone else (Drew? Helio?) is completely forgotten. In terms of votes she needs to do ONE of the following in order to be safe:

–          Pam has to get 7,340 more votes per million votes cast than Kirstie, OR;

–          She needs to get 9,050 more votes per million votes cast than Bristol, OR;

–          She needs to get 12,660 more votes per million votes cast than Joey, OR;

–          She needs to get 14,470 more votes per million votes cast than Melissa, OR,

–          She needs to get 16,280 more votes per million votes cast than either Drew, Helio or Kelly, OR;

–          She needs to get 18,100 more votes per million votes cast than either Shawn or Apolo

I could go on but I won’t. You get the picture. The only one of these that I could see happening is Melissa or Helio…with an outside shot of Drew.  I don’t think that Pam has the juice to get past either Bristol or Kirstie….or Joey….but I’m going to say right now that Melissa and Helio could be surprises. If there is such a thing as a surprise elimination this season.

Anyway, let’s say that by some miracle (and crazy Tristan fans :-) ) Pam survives.  Kirstie is the next lowest scorer. In order to stay in the event that Pam gets past her, she would need the ONE of the following:

–          Kirstie  has to get 1,810 more votes per million votes cast than Bristol, OR;

–          She needs to get  5,430 more votes per million votes cast than Joey, OR;

–          She needs to get 7,240 more votes per million votes cast than Melissa, OR,

–          She needs to get 9,050 more votes per million votes cast than either Drew, Helio or Kelly

Yeah, I think she can do all that easily. I don’t think she’s in trouble. Bristol? Needs ONE of the following to happen if both Kirstie and Bristol survive:

–          Bristol needs to get  3,620 more votes per million votes cast than Joey, OR;

–          She needs to get 5,430 more votes per million votes cast than Melissa, OR,

–          She needs to get 7,240 more votes per million votes cast than either Drew, Helio or Kelly

This is where I’m less sure. I don’t know if Bristol has it this season like she did in her original season. These are the all stars!!

I could go on and on, but at the end of the day, I think Pam is going home.  If there’s a shock, I think it will be Melissa.   If there is a real surprise that I don’t discuss here, I’ll do a numbers wrap up. :-)

Nightline And Good Morning America Cover The Premiere Of DWTS, Interviews And Reviews

So, last night after the Dancing With The Stars premiere, Nightline had interviews with Shawn Johnson, Gilles Marini, and Melissa Rycroft where they chatted about the competition and whether it’s harder or easier to do the show again. Gilles says it will be challenging to live up to expectations. Melissa is the most afraid of the athletes. You can watch this interview at Nightline here.

More of the cast and Tom Bergeron dish on Dancing With The Stars, what to expect, and the competition at this Nightline link too. They review the first dances as well.

Lastly, Wendy Williams gives her take on the first dances on Dancing With The Stars last at Good Morning America. Wendy says Emmitt was born to dance and he “glides”. She thinks the half points will help the contestants. Wendy is secretly rooting for Kirstie and Maks, but, she doesn’t think they will make the top five. It’s going to be a tough season and the contestants will have to bring everything. She thinks Apolo and Shawn will be in the top three. Sabrina will make the top five and, of course, Emmitt. She predicts Pamela is going home tonight because there was no chemistry with Tristan (wha?? I thought they had great chemistry. She just didn’t dance that well). Lots more at Good Morning America. So, what do you think of Wendy’s review? Did she nail it? Pretty much so, I think. I think Val and Kelly could possibly make the top three as well if they perform strong and have all the elements like they did last night. And then there is Gilles and Peta! 8O Wowza, we have ourselves a competition, don’t we?

Stay tuned for Heidi’s NUMBERS post next! ;) xx
