Pretty surprised they were willing to cast another skater after so many people accused Kristi of being a ringer...maybe they figured Evan would disprove that, if only because his height may give him some problems.:lol:

See, I don't get this. A skater is a ringer, but someone who DANCES for a living isn't? (example: boy band members, rap/pop stars, broadway actors/actresses, mousketeers, out and out pro dancers...)

I don't see Evan as ringer, but I think he'll go far and could pull off the win - but not because of some ability that makes him a so-called ringer. He'll work hard, improve a lot, and have really cute personality that wins people over.

I'm betting he'll be awesome at the foxtrot!

Evan's got body awareness and work ethic (and Anna T. to whip his butt!) I think that's his real advantage! And I agree with Bev, while there is some crossover skill involved with skating and dancing, learning stuff for being a singer/performer is just as helpful. Maybe more as they're used to learning dances QUICKLY.

And yes, Evan, tanning is your friend. Hair--I suspect that on DWTS, they have staff to do that sort of thing! (And I have a pro who would violently disagree with her about wearing black. Sometimes he'll dance with a white shirt if he HAS to for some reason. That's about all. Otherwise it's black! Anyone who survived professional ballroom in the '80s and early '90s would understand why he has a complex about it, too.)

I'm really curious to see how he does with dances like waltz and rumba. I think he'll be great at paso, tango, etc.

Where's her dress? :rofl: Evan towers over her. I guess that's good if he has to lift her!

He totally does tower - and he probably had to stand with his legs out like that to minimize the blatant height difference. But at 6'2 it makes sense that he's so much taller. They look good together though, and he looks good in white! More non-black for Evan! I really can't wait for the sparkly pink ruffly man-cleavage shirts with the spray tan he's said he'll get if needed.

WOW, they look really good together!!! Evan looks wonderful in white shirt, as dark-haired men mostly do. I think that there are lots of colour which will fit him though. Personally I really love him (as well as many other men) in black...

With just a few exceptions for a specific dance, they're not allowed to do lifts until the free style in the finale.

Just as a clarification to some earlier posts: Evan IS doing both Dancing with the Stars and Stars on Ice. He will do DWTS on Sunday-Tuesday and join with SOI for Wednesday-Saturday (so he WILL NOT be appearing in any Sunday, Monday or Tuesday show). That's the plan indefinitely but things could change depending on when/if he is eliminated from DWTS.

Im surprised that Weir even refers to a poll where one could vote several times without any restriction. Such polls have no meaning, only those are serious where one can vote once. Even then the result can be manipulated, by use of computer tricks and info about voting spread widely among other fanatic fans, etc.

Besides, Id suppose that the guests were already selected before that poll was put on the website?

I watched this Access Hollywood interview on TV yesterday. Johnny did not bring up the poll, the guy who was interviewing him did. Johnny just responded to the guy's question.


ETA: Here's a video of the interview.
