    I did think Hope was better than Krob who appeared to have Listeria. Listeria's most easily diagnosed sign in cattle is walking in circles.

    LOL, "It's just a lot different coming from a woman teacher..." True dat. (*makes note to actually get around to getting a lesson with pro's wife/pro partner about women's arm styling...)

    Saving the 9s for Derek's team....apparently MUST KEEP krob, Hope, and Ricki on at all costs....

    JR must be getting really high audience votes.

    Maks lucked out being on Derek's team because they'll get the higher score.

    somehow I don't think luck had much to do with it.

    krob's expression watching Maks and Hope is "Um...should we be calling a domestic violence hotline?"

    Maks is a very bad teacher!
    For once I feel sorry for Hope to have him as her partner.

    For being used to being on a reality show, he didn't look comfortable at all with what was going on

    Oh, no excuse me, they used the other only Evanescence song anyone remembers.

    Oh, gee, unmitigated praise. I am shocked.

    Wow! That practice footage did nothing to make think Maks is not a total *ss. I don't know what's really going on between him and Hope but there's not excuse for physically pushing her around like that. He even did it in the dance itself.

    I am off "Team Maks" for good.

    I think I might be sick of this show.

    I want Hope and Maks to leave. They make me uncomfortable. And she's terrible.

    But I think Nancy will leave.

    God, at this rate Krob will make at least the semis. That's just not cool.

    krob actually got a couple Woobie points from me for that--he looked genuinely like he was thinking "Um, he just shoved a girl...you aren't supposed to beat up girls...should we be breaking this up? That's really not right...."

    I don't mind a bit of shoving or a (light) smack when it's clearly part of a good-natured relationship. This just looks like that's how Maks teaches.

    I'd rather see Nancy stay than Hope, but I don't Nancy ever lifted her feet off the ground in that dance with Tristan...

    There's nothing on this show that isn't scripted and heavily edited, especially the rehersals. I don't know what the producers are trying to do with this, except generate more publicity. If Maks was really being abusive toward Hope, she'd have decked him, then kneed him in the groin. That was staged. I just don't know to what purpose. If you watched Maks closely, you could tell he was reluctant to do this.

    I totally agree. The whole thing with Maks is a put on--as well as all the other "drama." Be assured, the producers put together exactly what they want.

    I'm not willing to give Maks that much benefit of the doubt.

    Maks has always been painted as the bad boy with a temper. I used to believe part of Maks's behavior as a true expression of who he is. I no longer believe that - the producers want to generate ratings. They are pitting the goodie goodie pro can make a dancer out of the poor injured women aka Derek against the bad boy tries to dominate his partners to attempt to win Maks. If you look at CarrieAnn's scripted response of "No No No no disrespect here, he is a respected dancer and who are you" tripe, it was meant to instill sparks to a slowly fading reality show. It is tiring this season - there are really no big names to bring in viewership this season. The only thing to do is to create fake drama.

    Question yet to be answered, Will it be picked up for the next season? Probably - will viewership drop? Probably

    My viewership is already dropping. I watch The Sing-Off and occasionally switch to DWTS to see specific dancers.

    There's bad boy, and there's hitting a girl. Do I honestly think Hope would hit back if she weren't scripted? Not really, unless she is COMPLETELY faking her entire personality. Heck, I'd hate to see how someone less easy-going would have dealt with Karina's snapping and temper.

    Not to mention if they're trying to set up a Derek-Maks showdown THIS season, they're nuts. Any one of the others remaining has more business making the final than Hope. Also, there's no way Maks comes out of that comparison looking like anything but sour grapes, which only helps Derek's image.
