PureDWTS Season 24: Why Normani Didn’t Win

So, to say that the four days following the announcement of the winner of season 24 of DWTS have been “interesting”, would be an understatement 😛 I’ve seen mainly rejoicing, but also some general rage from the Harmonizers, who simply can’t fathom how Normani came in 3rd place and insist that the show must be rigged/racist/sexist/capitalist/whatever-ist because she didn’t win. While this is unfortunately the type of behavior many of us have come to expect from that particular group of fans, there have been a few fans that have sincerely expressed a desire to know why I think Normani didn’t win.  So here is my sincere response – if you are genuinely puzzled as to how it happened, this is my personal opinion, backed up with some numbers and some general observations about voting behavior. Very little of this actually has anything to do with Normani herself – most of these are factors that were out of her control, out of her fans’ control, and weren’t really things that anyone (other than maybe the executive producers) could have done anything to fix. I think Normani herself was just kind of a victim of circumstance this season – just not destined to win, for whatever reason. So the cries of “You’re just being mean to Normani!!!”? Keep ’em to yourself or GTFO.

So if you are genuinely interested, read on – and if you can remain civil and level-headed, feel free to comment or ask questions. But if you’re just here to complain about us or just generally be obnoxious, I will delete comments and permanently blacklist posters without a second thought – I’ve never witnessed the same level of vitriol from some fanbases as I saw this season.  I have no time for it.

Carrie Ann Inaba Writes On How DWTS Season 22 Touched Her, An Open Letter

Carrie Ann Inaba has written her last blog of the season at Access Hollywood. She talks of why Dancing With The Stars Season 22 was her favorite and how touched she was by the contestants this season. So much so, she was moved to learn sign language. You can read the full blog at Access Hollywood. Below is her open letter “to anyone who wants to try something new but is afraid”….

To Anyone Who Wants to Try something New but is Afraid;

To all of you who have a desire, a dream, or a daring thought of doing something you have never done before, of trying something you wish you had done many years ago and may be afraid you are too old to do now.

To those of you who feel a tug in your heart when you watch someone dancing, singing, painting, volunteering, or reaching out to help when no one else will, because deep in your heart, you want to be that person…

To the shy souls that want to say hello to a neighbor they always see but have never learned his/her name, or to the successful business people who really just want to start their own small business and simplify their lives,

I offer you this: Life is a journey, your personal journey.

It is yours to explore your heart’s desires and your most secret dreams.

If you listen to the whispers of your heart, even if you think people may laugh or judge you, you will find yourself satisfied and you will give yourself joy.

For life is about growth and expanding, exploring the unknown, and pursuing your own bliss.

Start small, or go for it all.
But I urge you all to dare to live the life you want to live.
And maybe even one day, we will see you on Dancing with the Stars.

Have a beautiful summer and I hope to see you soon.

To all the Season 22 contestants, thank you for daring to dance with us. Your courage has inspired us all. I hope you have enjoyed and have been enriched by the journey. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with you all, and to do something I love. Spread love wherever you can and I’ll see you next season! xoxo

— Carrie Ann Inaba

DWTS 22 Post Finale Numerology And Astrology Follow Up, Mirror Ball Astrology Scorecard Updated

A Follow-Up: The Winning Numbers were…!

by donamadrina

Oh my! This is what I can say about Nyle and Peta’s win, folks! 🙂

As we knew already, the duality was unbelievable in the numbers this season. (My numerology teacher would never have tried to call it.) So I went back to see what may have been the reason numerologically for Nyle and Peta’s win.

As we have seen before, so many of the couples this season had amazing numbers, with tons of NATURAL MATCH numbers, more than I’ve seen in any season ever since I’ve been doing these numerology posts. The cause for so many NATURAL MATCH numbers has to do with the fact that the year 2016 equals a 9, which makes it so that everyone’s Personal Year number matches their Life Path number. (Too complicated to cover here.) Read more..

PureDWTS Season 22 Finale Night Two: Recaps, Interviews, And More

Let’s get straight to the media today! Though before we begin, know that we don’t go away in the off season of Dancing With The Stars. We have new “end of the season” Questionnaires coming. We want to ask you on which Pros and Celebs you’d like to see dance next season and much much more including RUMORS and special blogs from Heidi and Courtney. So, don’t go away.

Ok, onto some Media. First, see Stormy’s Tumbler Page for all the DWTS All Access coverage last night if you missed it. A huge thank you to her for working early in the mornings to get it all up as soon as possible for everyone. Afterwards, read People for all of their coverage including news that Peta might be expecting (WHA?? Be sure to read the link if your eyes are falling out like mine. lol). Then head to Glamour. Below is a take for what happened behind the scenes after the show was over. Be sure to read the link for lots more.

The ballroom cleared out pretty quickly after the show ended (both to get the final contestants on a flight to New York, and to get everyone else to the wrap party), but runner-ups Mark Ballas and Paige VanZant graciously came over for a chat. “It is bittersweet,” said Paige of last night’s outcome. “I’m upset of course. I wanted to take that mirrorball home, and I wanted [Mark] to win it for his birthday.” Still, “I’m really blessed for the opportunity. I feel like I haven’t lost anything, and I’ve only gained momentum, and a platform to speak out against bullying. It’s been amazing.”

Although it wasn’t the same as winning the mirrorball, head judge Len Goodman did say that if the finals were solely judged on dance, Paige was the best dancer. “It’s lovely to hear that,” noted Mark. “I’ve known Len a long time, and have a lot of respect for Len, so when he gives you that kind of a compliment, it’s very nice. But I know that [of Paige]. I knew that. So, you know…” he trailed off. Still, it’s not the end of the journey for the pro dancer and the UFC fighter, who have become close friends since early March. “I’m going to be in L.A. a lot,” revealed Paige, “so he won’t be able to get rid of me!”

Looking back to the very beginning of their journey, there’s not much Paige would change, expect for maybe one thing. “Maybe [I’d tell myself] to listen to Mark more right away,” she laughed. “And just completely embrace myself in this competition and not worry so much. I was so worried at first what I was going to say and if people were going to like me, but you know what? Just go for it and be yourself.”

As for Mark’s 30th birthday, the celebration will have to wait, as he and Paige will travel from L.A. to N.Y.C. and back again within 24 hours. It’s a hectic time for all the couples, who traditionally not only visit GMA, but Live with Kelly! and The View as well. After DWTS ended last night, season 22 champs Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd were trying to take as many photos with friends and family before publicists literally ushered them out of the studio to change and get on their flight. Peta’s fiance, Maks, was seen taking photos and sharing hugs with Nyle’s mom and twin brother. For more behind-the-scenes access, check out our Snapchat backstage!

Here’s a Glamour snapchat as well…
