Yikes! Are they HOPING to be cancelled? I only recognize about 3 of the "celebrities" and even the cast of professional dancer's is running on fumes...

Oooh, someone else I actually know. Evanna Lynch played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter movies. Disappointed she got Keo, though. I want her to do well!

I hadn't connected the dots, but Milo Manheim is the son of Camryn Manheim (best known for her Emmy-winning role in the TV show 'The Practice')

I will say, even if she's not great, Evanna Lynch will likely stick around for a bit because of the Harry Potter fandom. I'm hoping she does well, though.

I usually recognize more of the stars than I did this time. :/

Even when I don't recognize the celebrities; I usually find "pleasant surprises" to follow.
Same here. I'd had no idea who James Hinchcliffe was, but he was by far my favourite of his season (and still think he should have won).

And some that I do know end up surprising me. I found Pamela Anderson (who is apparently heading to do the French version?) somewhat surprisingly elegant and graceful. Tonya Harding was much more elegant than I expected. Frankie Muniz was just so lovable!

I saw Mary Lou & Sasha on some kind of morning show today. It was posted on the net so I'm not sure which show but she is looking great & having lots of fun.

I guess they have to do it to keep the show interesting, but I don't like it when there are so many different dance styles in one show, because you can't compare people. I would rather have just 2 styles per night and split the group. Maybe 3 at most. :shuffle:

So I'd had no idea this was happening, but Mark Ballas has taken over the lead role of Charlie Price in Kinky Boots on Broadway for a limited run (Sept 11-Nov 4).

I'm glad to see he's having so much post-DWTS success. It seems like he's having fun on Broadway. The British accent in this show, will probably come a bit easier than the New Jersey accent he put on for Jersey Boys... (though his singing as Frankie Valli seemed pretty good)

For Idol fans, the prior Charlie was David Cook. He congratulated Mark in a passing-the-baton post on his last day of the show.

I though Mary Lou did well out of the block. But I don't like their new judging paddles!! And yep, I bet within 2 weeks, Bruno will no longer have a microphone.

Sasha looks like a giant next to Mary Lou!

I assume those were Mary Lou's daughters in the front row cheering. Very attractive family and she still moves well for someone who hasn't been in gymnastics or performing for almost 30 years.

I wish Evanna got someone other than Keo, because I like her, and she's good! They were really hard on her (I thought she was the best so far, by far). Seriously, 5 and 6?

I'd love her to do Bette Midler's version of "I Put A Spell On You" from Hocus Pocus.
