    I believe he's Catholic. He also has a cross tattoo on his left arm/shoulder.

    Ugh, I forgot to vote for the men, but I didn't think Gilles was one of the choices, was he?
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I thought he was, but I could have just had him on the brain.

    You have got to be kidding! I missed this. What the heck are people thinking....oy. And I *did* vote for Kristi, so I have a right to complain!

    Very disappointing season. [rant off]
    I don't like how they remodeled the studio in general . They traded what I perceived as classic ballroom to a Miami nightclub lit with neon.

    As for Brooke, at least she can empathize with the contestants, not just sympathize. Samantha, Brooke, Drew, a 'Truth Booth', a plain old standup microphone in the middle of the "celeb-quarium"....makes no difference to me .

    Burke was on the Kimmel show last night, btw:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV7c2U_YUdk

    She's rooting for Kate?

    --------

    Also, did I hear Bergeron say that next week the contestants will receive two different scores for one dance: one for performance and one for technique? Evan is used to that type of scoring .

    Just watch Brothers & Sisters. He's got his shirt off all the time.

    I don't think he was among the male celebrity choices because I voted for Joey Fatone. I never would have done that if Gilles Marini was an option.

    Evan's rehearsal footage and number from last night:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY9HFuQ-OoQ

    ETA: He's becoming pretty cute and the number looks better to me on second viewing. I don't understand the criticism on Evan's feet. What should he be doing?

    What is his mother's maiden name? Maybe that is where the Greek comes from.

    Santoro -- according to Wikipedia. His family heritage is Czech and Italian (also courtesy of Wikipedia). You don't have to be Greek to belong to the Greek Orthodox church.

    Greek.

    He is a Greek Orthodox Christian,[7] having stated that one of his most prized possessions is his Orthodox cross.[9]

    Sad to say, I have never watched this show. I think I shall have to program my DVR though if this is a frequent occurrence.

    Go on ABC.com. I think they have past episodes.

    I don't much care for the new look of the studio either.

    I do, however, like Brooke Burke.

    The whole Gosselin phenomenon puzzles the hell out of me. Which is neither here nor there but in terms of DWTS, it distorts the voting and support patterns in a way that has me mildly irritated. (Mildly because that's all I care about the results.)

    They might not be watching. My sister's rather-conservative pastor already has been preaching the evils of DWTS and SYTYCD for quite some time now.

    Really loving Evan's dancing on the show, but I hope he gets a few new moves during the other segments. The first week when they panned the couples at the beginning, he kind of gave a wooden smile and looked sooo nervous. The second week he upgraded with a bigger smile and a wink. But this week he did the same thing. Gotta keep changing it up kid or you'll get the "robot" remarks again!

    Or they didn't get what he was implying. One of my faculty asked me today what he was talking about.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    I missed the last few couples last night so haven’t seen Pussycat lady’s routine. I find Erin Andrews [and her story ] vaguely interesting and I thought their dance had a ton of chemistry. Am I the only one? I don’t like reality TV in general, but I’m aware of the phony “showmance” concept. However I’m starting to believe that they’ really are involved. Either that or great acting guys!

    Since both of them get their Jewish half from their mothers, then it makes them both 100% Jews by the Jewish tradition.
    Though, this won't be a reason for me to like or to dislike skaters.
    In their case, they are both very talented.
    US has a promissing future in ice dancing category, now that BelGosto retired!
    And Charlie is very
    Can't wait to see him participating in DWTS!
    Wishful thinking, I know...

    Sorry for going a bit out off the topic.
