I enjoyed this opener show, and of my top predicted 6, they're pretty much the top 6 at this point (except for Denise who was not as good as I thought...) score wise, time will tell how the fans vote. I was not expecting David Alan Grier to be as good. I figured Steve Wozniak would be a train wreck and that Ty would be a bit stiff - he's a manly man after all! I've never really voted much during the show. I enjoy watching it, but not so much getting into the voting and the boards online. We'll see about changing that this season and voting a bit more!
Low to High Score Highlights:
Steve Wozniak & Karina
Len: Held his attention but a total disaster!
Bruno: Like a teletubby going mad at a gay pride parade!
CA: Went for it...
He likes to take 5 minute thinking breaks. Nice black rehearsal socks! And the pink feather boa was a hoot!
Ty Murray & Chelsie
Bruno: Like an Army drill
Len: He did come out and try...
CA: One CUTE cowboy!
He roped the DWTS trophy! Jewel was laughing at him in the audience. And did UberPERKY Samantha Harris yell out a big "YEE HAW!" for us!?
Lawrence Taylor & Edyta
CA: More offense--get down and dirty!
Len: A casual approach...
Bruno: Attack it!
Lawrence doesn't like man heels! And what's up with all those wide-legged work out pants!?
Steve-O & Lacey
Len: No Jackass here but not quite the ticket...
Bruno: Big pile 'o slapstick!
CA: Oddly mesmerizing...
He's very Caucasian, can't keep a beat and has tiny ankles! But he wanted to put his foot in the waltz's butt!
Belinda Carlisle & Jonathan
Bruno: Julie Andrews morphs into Cloris Leachman
CA: Let Jon lead!
Len: Overall good job
She needs a bucket, cause she's a dizzy girl when on the gogo!
Denise Richards & Maksim
CA: Looked terrified...
Len: Too loose. (Tell Heather Locklear about it...)
Bruno: Something about losing it and finding it !?
She likes bad boys and Maksim is her little Maxie-Poo!
Holly Madison & Dmitry
Len: Not bad, but...
CA: Like a newborn deer with wobbly legs
Bruno: Easy on the eyes a plus!
She only had 1 week to prepare. I think she's gonna need more..
David Alan Grier & Kym
Bruno: 4 or 5 characters (is 3 or 4 characters too much)
CA: Face a distraction...
Len: His bum sticks out a bit!
Kym doesn't get his jokes and he's planning to fight dirty!
Chuck Wicks & Julianne
Bruno: Easy man. Easy.
Len: Bizarre posture.
CA: Most graceful man in a long time on the show!
Definitely smooth, but don't tell Julianne what to do!
L'il Kim & Derek a.k.a Black Barbie & Ken (Her words, not mine people!)
Len: 1st Class
Bruno: Nasty but tasty
CA: First night jitters
She dedicated her dance to...the ladies at the Federal Detention Center...
Melissa Rycroft & Tony
Len: One door closes, another one opens!
Bruno: That Bachelor guy is a LOSER!
CA: Beautiful dancer but don't take this competition lightly!
Uh huh! They totally replayed the break-up between Melissa and Jason to boos from the crowd!
Shawn Johnson & Mark
CA: Elegance, truly moved by her dancing
Bruno: Beware of Gymnastic Arms!
She's the youngest competitor ever!
Gilles Marini & Cheryl
CA: Fire and Bravado!
Bruno: Clothes on or off, he can strut his stuff!
Len: Absolutely fabulous!
He's feminine and he doesn't have much of a fan base. Oh boy...
