Hi, there, Trasherinos! First off, I’m sorry for not responding to your comments on the last article. I always like interacting with everyone, but it’s just been quite a week. Last week, we lost everyone’s favorite science guy – Bill Nye. I do have a theory about that. I think he really withdrew from the competition. However, for the sake of the viewers, he decided to do that last dance and then get “kicked off.” He had ridiculous support that probably would have carried him a little further.
Oh, hey, Julianne Hough is here filling in for Len while he’s in the UK judging Strictly Come Dancing. Doesn’t Bruno judge that show too? Why can’t we get rid of him for this week instead? And, really? The judges are making a giant entrance? Is this going to be a thing all season? We start with an interview with Julianne. I guess we’re calling her a “movie star” now. Do Rock of Ages and a remake of Footloose really count? If I remember correctly, they flopped pretty badly.
OK, time for dancing now. First up, it’s Jack and Cheryl with a quickstep. In rehearsal, we learn that Cheryl doesn’t know what a marionette is. Wow. She’s a little bit stupid, isn’t she? I also think that Jack has a little man crush on Corbin. His name comes up constantly!
That was definitely an improvement over last week. Before we talk to the judges, we talk about Cheryl’s period for a bit. Awesome. Julianne also thinks this dance was an improvement, but Jack needs to act like he’s having fun. Bruno hasn’t seen so many tricks before – even in Vegas. A prostitute reference. Thanks for that, Bruno. Carrie Ann disagrees with Julianne a little bit and thinks that Jack was a lot more animated than he ever has been. Are we going to have a cat fight on the panel?
Carrie Ann – 8
Julianne – 8
Bruno – 8
Huh, so Kristen Davis is here. Who knew that Charlotte York and Jessie Spano were friends? And that’s a good segway into Elizabeth and Val’s dance. This week, they’ll be performing an Argentine tango. I never like this one coming out so early. I always liked when this was done for the semifinals. Elizabeth made Val stare into her eyes for a long time to make sure they stay connected. At least she’s not talking in hashtags anymore.
