My two cents...
I got Jenny Kat fatigue around (her) year three and while she is a good dancer, I've just have had enough of her - it's too much, they have other team members. I also kinda feel like her quick ascension to Queen Supreme and extreme dedication was (is) a little bit to over compensate for not making the team the first time she tried out.
I don't know if Kelli was trying to make up for the sins of MTT 8 but I think Alexandra should have been given more time or God forbid a gimme year like Ashley Pro, Kat, Morgan, and Kaitlin. Kelli balled her eyes out after Alex's cut, she clearly wanted her on the team.
DCC cannot dance hip hop very well. I also think it is a huge kick in the teeth to DCRB to have DCC (pom dancers) perform a feature hip hop routine despite DCRB being the hip hop dance team.
The weight standards are ridiculous, unheathly, and promote disordered eating. The girls are held to a number based on height (not acknowledging body comp or muscle mass) for example 5'3" girls need to weigh no more than 113....and their weight is displayed in the locker room for all to see, with the names/weight of the 'bigger' girls highlighted.
I have no qualms with Judy shouldering most of the teaching leg work to the leaders and upper vets. My boss never rolls up her sleeves, I'm the one doing the day to day. Judy can and does know the routines thoroughly and can easily spot a mistake.
I get why it happened but Chelsea's cut screamed producer shenanigans and was not natural. Im for certain Kelli as EP saw the locker room raw footage which is why the reprimand and cut came later in the week and not during the 2nd time Chelsea was called that same night. In a true reality show, Kelli should not nor would not have been able to make a decision based on raw footage as most reality particpants dont have access to said footage. Again, DCC is better for cutting Chelsea but as an industry person, the whole thing screamed interference.
