BOLTON: I give credit to whoever came up with the idea of him crawling out of the doghouse. He made no effort whatsoever to compete and it looked like he agreed to sign onto the show just for the free publicity. Bruno was right for calling him out.
THE PALINS: It's obvious that TPTB are planting some not so subtle barbs at Bristol. Bruno mentioned that she was in "virgin" territory with ballroom dancing. The songs selected reference her mother. They sent B and her partner to Alaska for a 5 minute interview, then had a special segment with Sarah in the front row. I have to add that both Bristol and Sarah are public figures who give lectures and they are probably interested in the extra publicity.
I don't have any animosity against Sarah or conservatives in general, and I wouldn't have boo'ed if I were there. It's all about publicity.
GREY: The emotional buildup with her and Swayze is old already. I expect that when she eventually wins it will be a tearfest.
ATHLETES, SITUATION, CHO, KYLE, FLO, BRANDY, AUDRINA: does anyone care?
CHERYL BURKE: I used to like you, but this season I'm disappointed. Your "tush" bloomers was just one step above Bolton with a dog bone in his mouth.
Jennifer Grey- She was great. One 9 wouldn't have hurt. I didn't like the floor sitting nonsense. It seemed rather tacky and disrespectful. She did look quite ill in her non-interview backstage.
At about midpoint she and Derek fell behind the music just for a moment, but he led her back to the tempo. That routine was unbelievably energetic. I don't think she was being dramatic. He's driving her to a win. Disco is about 125 bpm, they were going at it at about 200+. Try it yourself and see how quickly you get exhausted. That's why the female pro dancers look exceptionally thin. It's a full body workout.
