    I was hoping to see him finally get a "clunker" though.

    Well, I'll miss his dancing.

    He was wonderful as long as he didn't open his mouth or we had to watch him mug to the camera off the dance floor.

    I'm not a fan of how he comes off sometimes, but I will miss his choreography and dancing.

    I wonder who'll dance with the female celebrity ringer now?

    Derek is a great dancer but enough of the favoritism.

    No one has done every season. Edyta was the only one who had up until last season.

    Why they never set up Edyta with the male-version ringer every single season is beyond me. She is so :smokin: hot I don't understand why they would not want to guarantee her a spot in the finals every freakin' single year. Not that I like, noticed or anything. :shuffle:

    ITA. He is one of the best choreographers on the show. And when he dances, he really dances. He stands out when I watch the group numbers.

    Jason Taylor was her ringer ... but then they had Kristi & Mark for competition. Oops. I think her choreographies weren't that great and that also hurt her and her partner.

    Jason Taylor a ringer? Jason Taylor is a football player who had never danced in his life.

    Edyta's not actually that great a dancer, though she does have a smokin' body... *slink*

    Aw, I wanted to see him get a total clunker! Derek is a good dancer but I harbor suspicions he's a crap teacher and got the "made" students so he wouldn't have to actually teach much.

    :sekret: I wonder if he WAS going to be assigned a clunker and decided to pursue acting.

    So...my vote is give Maks a damn winner already before HE goes whining off. If not him, Tony. Or, heck, Louis (though of all the people not entitled to complain, considering the raft of real titles he has, Louis should really be able to take the mirror ball or leave it.)

    Isn't Maks gonna be on the Ukrainian version of The Bachelor during this next season?

    Glad Derek's gone. Now if only we could get a break from Cheryl, I might actually watch this season.

    Come to think about it a bit, this may actually be great for Mark. We may see a different side of him without "better than you foster brother" around.

    I was quite impressed with Mark this last season. He's the first to get an absolute blank slate and did a LOT in a very compressed time.

    But I wonder if he's happy to see Derek gone for at least a season. I don't know anyone who knows the situation who doesn't feel a little sorry for Mark.

    When will we know the new cast? The new season begins March 21st. They begin training six weeks before the first show airs if I remember correctly...

    They begin training three to four weeks before. My guess is they'll announce the celebrities around March 1 and the pairings a few days later.
