Well it looks like last week’s edition was pretty popular, and got some of your questions answered (as well as some of ours :-)). Hopefully this week’s edition will be equally as amusing and informative…
…it looks like a lot of the top search terms this week were either pretty mundane (“pure dwts”, “pure dwts music list”, “cheesecake awards”, “who wore it better”, etc.), or were ones we had already addressed in last week’s edition (No, Hines is not married; and I am not going to further gratify any inquiries about “mark ballas girlfriend”). So this week, I picked out some of the more unique ones – they may not have gotten a huge number of hits, but the very fact that even ONE person was searching for some of these and somehow ended up here is amusing to me :-P
Kym Johnson height
She’s between 5’6″ & 5’7″, depending on what Kym Johnson fan page you consult. Definitely one of the taller female pros – I pretty sure she’s the tallest current female pro, and the 2nd tallest female pro ever to do the show (she’s tied with Edyta, who is also 5’6″-5’7″; Anna Demidova is a willowy 5’10″!). Personally, I’d rather know the cup size of her Awesome Boobage(TM) or what bra she wears to get them to look so awesome, but that’s just me. :-)
Maksim Chmerkovskiy salary
The answer: substantial :-) The salaries of the pros on DWTS are a pretty well-kept secret that we only really hear speculation about – I’ve heard everything from $6K per week that they remain in the competition, to $5200 per episode, to a few hundred bucks extra for pro dances. Who knows what the real amount is, without consulting the IRS. However, we did do some speculating of our own after Maks appeared on Million Dollar Listing on Bravo…and we decided that he’d make one pretty damn good sugar daddy ;-)
John’s Comment: Related to this is how much the stars make. Here’s the info on what Shawn Johnson made on DWTS. Pros likely don’t make as much as the stars, but it’s another point of reference.
Shirley Ballas boobs
LOL!!! Glad I’m not the only one that admires them so much :-D I couldn’t figure out why these searches were directing here…until I googled it myself and realized that we were the #1 link, thanks to a comment I made about Shirley’s great cleavage in the comments section of one of last week’s posts. However, I’m a bit saddened that no one else on the net is discussing them…maybe everyone else is just more entranced by Kym’s Awesome Boobage(TM) ;-)
Do Kirstie & Maks get along?
Quite well, I think. I can’t speak for everyone, but I daresay I haven’t seen Maks this happy & having this much fun since Mel B! They seemed to have a minor stumble in rehearsal this week, but they managed to pull it together and give two great performances nonetheless. No love lost between them :-D Check out their appearance on Ellen last week – these two are just too charming together. Kirstie may not be the best dancer this season, but she’s certainly one of the most entertaining…on and off the stage ;-)
Chelsie Hightower Mormon
Erm…yeah, she is one. That’s about all I know, I’m afraid…John, care to interject anything? You’re the expert opinion on these two topics in question: blondes and Mormons ;-)
John’s Comment: Definitely mormon. Although, so are Lacey, Derek, Julianne and Ashly (to name the regular pros). I want to say that Chelsie’s brother was going on a mormon mission, but my memory could be off on this. Ashly even just tweeted about enjoying church on Sunday. Plus, her child’s name is Ammon which is a famous mormon name that comes from the Book of Mormon. Needless to say, ballroom dancing is very big in Utah and within the mormon community in general. The World Ballroom competitions are often held at Brigham Young University in their basketball arena so it can fit all the people. Imagine 8,000-10,000 ballroom fans enjoying the World Ballroom competitions. It’s a great experience. Although, I’ll admit that when they started the wave it might not have fit “ballroom” very well, but fun nonetheless.
Lacey Schwimmer white jive costume
Hahaha…someone is really in search of the crotch doily costume? I’m hoping it’s for laughs, and not with the intent of purchasing it :-) Anywho…here’s a link to the edition of Who Wore it Better in which it appears, and also the Cheesecake awards where Heidi & I marveled at its tackiness. Just say no to crotch doilies, kids.
Derek Hough barefoot pics
Crazy kids & your foot fetishes! :-P I mean, I wouldn’t bat an eye at “Derek Hough shirtless” or “Derek Hough chest”, “Derek Hough abs”, or even “Derek Hough hair” searches…but feet? *shrugs* I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go ’round…so anyway, here ya go. Heidi even balked at this request…she wasn’t sure SHE even had one. Now THAT’S saying something! But you guys asked, and she delivered – but maybe in the future, try PureDerekHough for pictures of various parts of Derek’s anatomy ;-)
