    I agree. I believe Bergeron was telling the truth. Sometimes things really are as they appear, even in Hollywood. People are way too cynical today. One day I hope one of the pros writes a tell-all book. I would snap it up in a second. While there would probably be tons of juicy who-dated-who gossip, I think it would also reveal the show to be more real than many are giving it credit for.

    Gee, even in rehearsals Meryl looks so beautiful. Her turns are amazing.

    I never knew Charlie wore glasses in rehearsal!

    Thanks for the link.

    Lol, it's not a 'theory'... Cheryl is the only person of color on the show. She was cast as a sexy exotic girl, but she is so down to earth, it didn't work. That's why she's been in the background the last few years. As for the new girls and guys, they are just that - new blood. Peta and Val are the breakout new stars. Peta the sexy Aussie and Val the sweet younger Chmerkovskiy. Again, they filled a niche. There have been a lot of pros coming and going. Some of them were basically filler. It sounds terrible but it's true. Not every pro is going to become a 'personality' - Elena Grinenko is probably the best dancer of them al; but she was bland and she was gone in a flash. Anyway. Don't take what I say literally. It's not like producers have a script that says 'looking for a tall hard-partying blond Aussie female dancer'; but when people were initially cast they were certainly expected to take on a certain role. I don't think anyone expected people to fall in love with the Chmerkovskiy brothers. The show was 100% centered around the Houghs and Mark Ballas. But that's a whole different conversation.

    Thank you, Piper! These pictures are to die for- just exquisite! :swoon:

    I'm super excited for tonight; hope they both knock it out of the park AND that the scores show it, LOL ;)

    I bet it was an interesting for Meryl to deal with Maks' idea that Salsa is unpredictable and you just have to go with what happens.

    I can't wait to see costumes now. :)

    I have told him several times to stop pointing. He just doesn't listen.

    There were a lot of Michigan accents in that video. :) Meryl doesn't seem to have much of one, Charlie's got a little one on his a's (pass-o), but that anchor...We'll have more at 8 a'clack!

    Sabrine,

    Thanks again for setting us all straight. I just looked up Elena Grinenko. I've got vague recollections of her on the show. You're right. She is bland. That's my main problem with legit competitive ballroom dancing. Its too bland.

    Yeah, on their J.Lo short dance from 2011-2012.

    Meryl seems to be in really good spirits in that video clip! And whoa @ the Meryl x Maks fan art. That is really gorgeously drawn.

    We're probably going to need a new thread by the end of tonight. Any ideas for a new title?
