    They'll eliminate the 3rd place couple in the finale results show (usually after the first hour), then do a bunch more fluff, then announce the winner among the final 2 couples.

    I have to give Nicole props for cheering for her competitors, and did anyone beside me notice her giving Evan a butt pinch/pat tonight when he and Anna were announced as the first safe couple? Go, Nicole!!! :lol:

    They'll probably also do one last dance at some point, but all get identical or very close to it high marks (all tens?), so the results won't actually make a difference. I can't remember if this is at top 3 or after the top 2 have been announced.

    Gilles was not among the male celebrity choices.

    Loved the fluff pieces on the professionals- I fast forwarded through Derek's though so I could get to Parethood.:)
    Poor Maks and his rollerblades.:(
    Anna looks so mature for her age yet her mom looks so young!

    But it was an ABC Family movie. The same channel that gave us the last three "Cutting Edge" movies. 'Nuff said. :p

    I just discovered two things...

    1. I won't be able to vote next week, I am in Europe. Will have to DVR to see what happens

    2. I have lost the z key on my keyboard (had to copy and paste that one!)

    (I know they are totally unrelated, but)

    And 3. BROOKE is still a bimbo. Just watched her final quesiton to Chad.. Please get rid of her next season.

    I was good tonight and didn't come here to get "spoiled" before the West Coast show...:)

    Thank God Chad is gone. Although I think Pam should have outlasted him and Neicy.

    (now for "I'm an AAAAARTEEEST" Nicole to bite it)

    Then you missed the crowning hair gel comment of awesome.

    Corky Ballas: When Derek was a child the best way to punish him was to take away his hair gel.

    Tom B after the clips: And we still use that hair gel punishment....

    ETA: In case anyone forgot, ya'll heard that Derek was Brooke's partner on the show, right? </sarcasm mode>

    My vote: Next year, Maks, Tony, and Jonathan get serious contenders, Derek gets the head case or joke entry.

    My first chance to post since watching...

    I didn't watch Joey or Melissa's seasons, so I have no idea how good they were when they were training on a weekly basis. That being said, I thought Joey was only minimally better than 85 in this dance and was really buying into what Bruno has been saying about this being the season with the stiffest competition.

    I was happy about Erin making it through, but I have to give 85 credit for even doing this. It was great to learn his back story. I give major props to anyone who pulls themselves out of a not-so-great start in life. Far too commonly it goes the other way.

    And everytime Brooke said "package" on Monday night I was laughing just a little bit to myself in the style of Beavis and Butthead.

    Joey looked awful, and Melissa looked like she was struggling to stay on her feet with him knocking her around. I wish she'd have danced with Gilles. But it just showed how much they need a pro. With 2 celebs, they should have made the choreography more basic.

    I like that Chad took this so seriously and really enjoyed himself.

    I prefer Jonathan stick to dancing with Anna. He bores me. I know he's got some impressive credits, I have liked some of what he's done on the show, and he certainly had a string of crappy partners (oh no Macy Gray), but I don't want to see a great celeb wasted on him.

    Maks made it to the finals again. His third trip. He'll probably get a medium level partner next time.

    Tony will be perpetually stuck with older women and head cases. It's his slot on the show. Melissa Rycroft was a fluke. Had she been cast at the start of a season, she'd have never been with Tony. The best he can hope for is that a 40-something woman has at least the dance background of Jane Seymour.

    As for Melissa, she looked grossed out by Joey. The gut and the KISS makeup only made it worse. Let's go back to the original Design a Dance concept of two dance pros.

    I think Brooke has alternated between dull and annoying. They can replace her even if it is Melissa Rycroft.

    Or Pam Anderson.

    At least when she'd say "package" she'd know what she was talking about! :lol:

    I remember seeing Anna's mother a couple of seasons ago giving advice to her daughter's celebrity partner at the time.


    Here's a blast from the past: The Pussycat Dolls performing while Anna and Jonathan dance:
