Although I don't see why Derek can't get a Bristol Palin instead of Mark.

I think it's probably because Mark is the better teacher.

On paper the casting sucks this season, but I hope they surprise us tonight.

I try not to have too much of an opinion before the show starts. In the past I was pleasantly surprised by people I wasn't really expecting to like. Never thought Kelly Osbourne would be a favorite. Jerry Springer was more charming than anticipated and while you may hate Tom Delay's politics (and of course he couldn't dance) he at least showed up with a good attitude and tried to do the moves and appeared to enjoy himself. Unlike some other contestants who shall remain nameless:slinkaway

Here's my breakdown with expectations:
Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani - NO clue, never heard of her
Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Experienced dancer meets drill sergeant. If the chemistry is there, they could be fantastic.
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas - Per Mark's twitter, this should be a train wreck. Unfortunately, we're stuck with her for a few weeks.
David Hasselhoff & Kym Johnson - Entertainer meets pro who knows how to showcase an entertainer.
Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas - Can be great if Corky can keep his mugging under control.
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough - All depends on how flexible her back is. I expect her to be able to do all the steps... extension will be crucial.
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya - Could be decent. At least he knows how to be coached and she's no shrinking violet.
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer - Another never heard of.
Margaret Cho & Louis Van Amstel - This should be interesting. If she takes it seriously, she could be very good.
Michael Bolton & Chelsie Hightower - Expecting a trainwreck. He seems pretty stiff.
Mike Sorrentino & Karina Smirnoff - I think The Situation can move. Don't expect him to be able to keep a frame.
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke - Rick should be able to move more easily than Kurt. Depends on how Cheryl handles the height difference.

First out... Bolton

In the USA Today clips I linked above, Bristol says the cha cha is supposed to be sexy and that she "doesn't have a sexy bone in my body

Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas - Per Mark's twitter, this should be a train wreck. Unfortunately, we're stuck with her for a few weeks.

When was that? I was just looking at Mark's Twitter and didn't see anything like that.

is Baby drunk or is that her store bought face?

Florence Henderson looks so young for 76.

And Tony dances around whoever that is.

Audrina does a competent and lively cha cha, but light on the footwork.

Audrina's pretty and she can move well for a non-entertainer, but she just seems sort of bland.

ETA: Why couldn't Tony get Jennifer Gray and Derek get paired with Audrina.

thought Audrina did good for the first dance. nice start.

Carrie Ann : you've got cojones
