And it looks like Carrie Ann is also a Meryl/Maks shipper... at 2 minutes in, she says she thinks they should get married
Has it been officially announced who's doing which dances yet? I mean, other than the freestyle and the switch-up dance style do-over.
Holy heck!! Just checked Facebook and Meryl and Maks' Jive video has 71.1k likes!!! They are killing it in popularity. Although it's a small portion, I would say 5 million is a pretty accurate pool. Something will make me go "hmmm" if they don't win
I'm seeing 9,700 likes for the jive, but I think word may have gotten out about FB-ology because there are a lot more total likes than there were in previous weeks. It's probably not so accurate anymore. However, the rankings haven't changed for weeks and weeks, so they probably weren't going to change this week anyway.
You'll notice that each couple got the most "likes" on the dance whose picture is first. I have a hard time believing that people were way more in love with that jive than with the VW (5,700 likes), so it's more like people are just giving a like for the first picture they saw of M&M rather than the actual dance. It's a good sign that people just like them in general, and it takes a little pressure off of Maks' freestyle needing to be the most amazing freestyle ever freestyled. People made up their minds weeks ago and I think they'll stick with it unless the freestyle is really bad.
I think Brook was talking about the likes on their jive video. It has 71k likes. In comparison, James's cha cha video has 30k.I'm seeing 9,700 likes for the jive, but I think word may have gotten out about FB-ology because there are a lot more total likes than there were in previous weeks.
That's interesting about the total likes going up, though. You're probably right that a lot of the fanbases are more attuned to it all the sudden because Kristyn Burtt has brought it to prominence.
I definitely agree that a lot more people are aware of Facebookology now---but each fan base knows more about it. So it may distort the accuracy a little, but I don't think much. And although the Jive has more likes because it's the first pic, BOTH MM pics have the highest total number of likes. The 5,700 for their VW is still higher than any other couples dances for that night.
I'm really hoping Maks and Meryl nail their dances because whoever goes home Monday that fan base will most likely be up in the air. So MM really need to impress those fans as well.
Wait and I'm reading that team Jeta is "bribing" fans to vote-- 500 votes gets a follow from James, 2500 gets a signed autograph. Really though....

I want MM to win SO SO bad, but I'm glad they aren't begging for votes. They focus on their dance and trust their fans to make the right decision. I really respect that they put themselves wholly into creating a story for themselves in the audience. They are truly about dance and the journey...
