DWTS Season 22, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers

It is weeks like this where I seriously consider not watching this show any more. To make matters worse, this season follows a season like the one we had with Bindi. Good lord, I’m not even sure where to start.

If I weren’t so lazy, I would go back and dig up half a dozen videos of CAI and the other bozos saying stuff like “You screwed up your footwork, but I don’t care!!” and then rewarding them with a 9 or a 10. I’m positive there’s a video out there of CAI commenting on how a dance was so entertaining she had to reward it with a high score, even though there was a slip up, or a lift, or some other issue. This is where they really pull back the curtain and you see it’s just an old dude at the controls and not some magical wizard – the manipulation is clear. Yeah, Wanya screwed up. But I would be WAY MORE okay with his scores if I wasn’t positive that worse dancing has been given higher scores when the dancer is one of the chosen.  But Wanya isn’t one of the chosen. He gets the Bethany tone of voice along with the Nastia packages. I said it back when Bethany was on the show – just watch CAI’s body language and listen to her tone of voice when she’s talking to either Bethany or Wanya. It like they committed a capital offense. It’s all designed to show or imply to the viewer that the recipient just ain’t all that and they don’t deserve your votes. Bitch please. You aren’t in a position to be that condescending – you won the night in the Team dance, but that bar was pretty low.

And that clown Antonio is worthy of ass kissing and high scores despite the fact that he’s barely rehearsed until recently and threw Sharna under a bus? Yeah, not cool.  If he’d been killing himself in rehearsal all this time, I MIGHT have a different opinion – but we know that isn’t the case. And spare me on the “he has another job” bs. Wanya has been touring this whole time and CANCELLED stuff so that he could rehearse more. Read more..

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. :-)
