    I feel bad for Chynna. You can see the brain freeze happen and she's just deer in the headlights from there on out. Tony kept it together as much as he could and at least kept her sorta calm. Poor both of them.

    Audience: we've seen Cher. You can stop voting for Chaz now.

    Yeah. I want to see Derek use that for his and Rikki's jive. Uh huh.

    So Rob/Cheryl and Chynna/Tony in the bottom so far?

    I'm guessing Nancy/Tristan will be joining them and going.

    so dancing is like skating in that when the couple are about the same height, it's more difficult. I did hold my breath when Julianne flipped Derek

    I prefer Juliette with Mark.

    Bruno, David wasn't butch. He was kind of vague. Though in fairness, Kym and Derek both have grounds for beating the crap out of whoever picks the music. They got the worst, most undanceable choices. Derek made it work, Kym...danced around while David winged a whip around.

    I'm hoping that it's Chynna. She's pretty, she has nice lines, but she has no showmanship and not much technique. I'd rather Tristan stay (I mean Nancy); but then he HAS made i much farther than any other new pro so hopefully even if he goes this week they'll ask him back. And I doubt Nancy or Chynna has the fan base to beat Rob's family's.

    Any of them, it would be kind of unfair, as Chaz has been much worse overall than all three.

    Darn it, Chynna was so good the other three weeks. Rob is overscored.

    I'd prefer to see Rob go, but won't be upset if it's Chynna. Poor Tony though, the one time I thought he had a partner who could dance and she still goes out early.

    Yay for Pee Wee!!

    Oh, well. I'd rather it be Kboy, but they'd have gone in a week or two any way. The only couple I want to root for is JR/Karina. I think I'll watch Sing Off next week and catch parts of DWTS next week. I don't care to watch Chaz, Kboy, or David. Tristan is hot and Carson is funny and hopefully I'll catch them.

    Chynna wasn't great overall and she really blew last night. But Chaz has never danced as well as ANY of the three who were up. Rob's had a really good week, Chynna was top the first week, Nancy's good overall but not flashy (she's appropriate to someone her age who's had more like a year or two lessons), Chaz...has never had a good week. Last night they were just nice because Cher was there.

    Notice that they didn't have the judges going on and on about how sad it was to see any of these people go.

    OMG! How can Clomp-Clomp Bono still even be IN this competition. EVERYONE (Nancy and David and Rob included) deserve to stay over him, and the fact he's not even in the bottom 3 is just sick. Hell even "I" can dance better than that (and that ain't sayin' much!). I fully expect to see him win. I really wouldn't be surprised when he makes the Top 3. :rolleyes:

    I'm going to start using my votes to get Chaz voted out rather than keep my fav in at this point! :mad:

    Yeah Yeah Yeah .... not a real dancing contest, just a popularity contest, blah blah blah. But still I would expect the dancing to count for just a teeny tiny little itty bit at least!

    i admit there isnt a lot of actual dancing from camp bono, however, i cant wuzrob krob (if he ever leaves) who moves like he is wearing a diaper filled w poo. also not sorry to see china leave, she reminded me of when cindy brady freaked out on the quiz show. i'd also like to see that cox spouse leave. i can see him soliciting a quickie in an airport bathroom.

    The novelty of Chaz is over. Please, god, go home next week, and let the dancing competition begin.

    They always say, "though not necessarily the bottom three". I only remember once in the entire history of the show when they said that the last two were actually the bottom two.

    Come on. "Just sick"...is children dying of starvation. How celebrities fair on a reality show is really not much to get worked up about. :)

    Dramatic, much? :lol:

    I haven't watched either show this week yet, but you've all got me curious. I've fast forwarded through each of Derek and Ricki's dances so far this season because I'm afraid of breaking my tv when I get the overwhelming urge to punch him out, but I may suck it up and watch this week. Maybe. :revenge:

    ^ :shuffle: actually, it was kinda good. Much as I don't like to like Derek, I did think it was good and the intro and exit gimmick was kinda cool.

    A gimmick not really different than those other pros do and Len always calls them on and always scores them down on. A gimmick is a gimmick.

    Tom mentioned to Len before the first round of comments that because of movie week they were allowed to have "stuff" at the beginning and the end of the dance.

    :lol: I used all 18 of my phone/text votes for Maks ... and Hope. If I had thought that there was any chance that JR was in danger, I would have given him half. :shuffle:

    Too bad that Chynna forgot her steps on Monday -- I would have much preferred Rob K be the one sent home. Oh well, I'll count my "blessings" that Maks is still around for another week -- and I'm OK with Nancy Grace staying, because I only watch Tristan. :D

    That said, someone occasionally surprises. (Apolo).

    Chaz's message has been sent, and received.
    It should be time for him to go; but, Cher's fanbase is huge.
    They will probably keep him in.

    Who cares about Nancy Grace? It's all about Tristan. And his chest hair. :swoon:

    Bye Chynna. I think people didn't like the fact that she was so overscored more than that she screwed up so badly. If she got poor marks, I bet more people would have voted for her out of pity. So I think the judges hurt her more than helped her.

    I was hoping it would be Rob's time to go, though. BTW, Bruce Jenner looks like a different person. Again. A few more cycles and maybe he's going to get his original face back. His family must miss him, they haven't seen him in decades.

    As much as I enjoy watching Derek, his sister, not so much. She did all the moves but I was waiting for her to start dancing and she never did. I can't remember the last time I felt such disconnect between what someone was doing and what they were supposed to be doing.

    Carson's reaction to not going home was sweet.

    Chaz is out of his element. I wonder what difference would it make if he wasn't so fat.

    Thank God I was just LIFTING the mug of hot coffee when I read that and hadn't actually taken a sip. I have a lecture to give this afternoon; I can't short out the laptop with the power point on it with spewed coffee.

    Though one of the 'hidden gems' this week was apparently Jenner lip-syncing along with Tom's teleprompter and I couldn't recognize him the picture, so you may actually have a point...

    Given some of the aside comments from some of these photo bloggers, I somehow think Nancy is staying less on the strenght of her show viewers and people who hate Casey Anthony (not that there isn't a gigantic overlap in THAT Venn diagram) than on the strength of people who want Tristan and his chest hair to stick around another week. (When I mentioned I was voting for Nancy or rather for Tristan, my new pro actually said "Ooooh" like that and I had to explain, no, no, just good old fashioned ballroom nepotism.)

    I skimmed the dance and results shows on my DVR. Looks like Derek can do no wrong. They really should rename this show "Dancing with the Houghs."

    Maybe - ala MK - Derek will win so many times that they'll rename the Mirrorball Trophy the Derek Hough Mirrorball Trophy. :lol:

    As for Chaz, I can't get worked up about it. Every season there is always some awful dancer who overstays his/her welcome because of a crazy fanbase that wants to make a point. It infuriated me when Bristol Palin was around, but now I'm just resigned to it. Whatever.

    lots of people here voted for bristol because they liked her in spite of her mother, not because of her

    every lady in my office is voting for chaz. i can assure you none of them is doing it to make a point. they just really like chaz as a person.

    Even though he's still a very large guy, he looks like he has lost quite a bit of weight around his middle. You can see it if you compare last night's episode to the first episode. The first episode is also the only episode where he danced and was not bad. It was kind of surprising--a lot of us were all for him at that point. I went back and checked the thread. :p

    So while I agree that his weight is probably an issue on the faster dances, I don't think it's entirely or even mostly because of his weight. Unlike the other stars, he doesn't seem to enjoy being there AT ALL. He seemed disappointed that he wasn't in the bottom and was the only one in the package last night who didn't make some comment to the effect of as hard as it is, it's worth it and I'm glad I did it. Chaz seems so defeated, and that IMO is a bigger issue than his weight.

    On the way to work this morning, the radio station I was listening to mentioned, "our two favorites were safe last night, Carson and Chaz," in a way as though she was speaking for the whole listening area, like the general consensus of who likes who based on people that have called in to talk about the show.

    Yes, but even though she wasn't that great, she could still dance circles around Chaz. :blah:
