Commercial for DWTS 21, Week 8 – Pressure’s On!! (Video)

Oh boy, I don’t think this commercial bodes well for either Carlos or Alexa. Either one of them is going home, or they’re setting up for the dance off….or both. Is it wrong that I hope it’s Carlos leaving??

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. :-)

Maks Chmerkovksiy Surprises 82-Year-Old Fan, He And Peta Murgatroyd Attend Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party

I couldn’t help but post this news on Maks Chmerkovksiy, but, my heart was so warmed when I saw it. Apparently, Maks surpised an 82-Year-Old Dancing with the Stars fan with a private dance lesson. Be sure to read about it in full at People. Also below are some photos of Maks and Peta Murgatroyd at the Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party on October 30, 2015 in Los Angeles, California

Hankins, 82, was invited for a private dance lesson with instructor Johnny Carvalho, but had no idea Chmerkovskiy would be there. After her lesson with one of Chmerkovskiy’s pros, the DWTS alum surprised her with a meet and greet and a hug.

“She’s so passionate and an amazing person,” Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE after the surprise. “Dancing means the same to me as it means to her. We’ve both done it when we were younger and it’s something that you never really stop wanting to do and stop wanting to enjoy.”

Hankins said her favorite dances are the waltz and the cha-cha and she always enjoyed Chmerkovskiy’s work when he was on DWTS.

“He’s always really good,” Hankins said. “I thought it would be nice to be able to dance with that man!”

Hankins, whose husband John has passed away, was born in Oakland, New Jersey and has a son, daughter and two grandchildren. Though she has been dancing since she was 5 and used to practice every week, she has been unable to dance regularly during the past few years due to health issues.
