Ugh, Keo. A gorgeous man and talented dancer who just can't seem to learn the first thing about competing on this show. He continues to overdance, and outdance his partner instead of backing down and letting her shine. And his frantic choreography isn't doing Jennie any favors.
The pros who've done well on this show are willing to learn, and grow, and take feedback, and improve. I don't think Keo will ever change his approach, no matter what. Bye, Jennie!
Sweet Kareem. Listen, I'm 5'4 and my husband is 6'7. People gape at our 15-in height difference. Tall people just move so differently, their center of balance is so much higher than regular people. Balance is different, limbs are longer, it's a whole buffet. Bravo for Kareem for coming out and trying it, and he had the line of the night (for me) when he held up the (comparatively) tiny tennis sweater and said "Maybe I could give this to my granddaughter." Boom. Great man, sweet guy, and as Erin said, an absolute legend. Thank you, sir.
Sasha threw me by doing the set up for the worst dance ever, and then having Tanya actually do a proper quickstep! Was not expecting that. Can't say I liked it, but props (like bears!) to Sasha for trying. If Bristol Palin had been in that bear suit I would have cried with laughter.
Rashad isn't at Alfonso levels yet (where is he, btw? Alfonso-o-o-o!) but I didn't enjoy the "I recently wrote my first book, and it had chapters, and..." Nah. Maybe let Tom plug your book when he thanks you at the end. Don't make it part of a critique. (He's still smokin' hot though).
Erin...seems calmer? Perhaps marriage has settled her down a bit? Really liked her hair, dress, and make-up. It's a good look, far better than many she has sported on this show.
1. Adam, 2. Mirai, 3. Could be Tanya, but probably not. Depends on further producer machinations. Josh and Chris are both cute & talented, either could end up in 3rd.
I haven't been keeping track, but how are the ratings going? Wondered if the absence of Derek, Mark, Val, Peta, and Maks would make any difference.
