They are still doing the pop leg I gotta pee pose

It's such a dancer pose growing up (I think it's meant to make your legs look longer or something) that I still do it as an adult in all photos!

I'm not sure where this is, but the lighting is awful, none of the girls look good.

 

Kat's wig is thirsty, oof.

Yes, definitely a dancer pose!  It creates some shape and makes your legs look longer (usually).

Is it that the placement is off?  Her forehead looks oddly low in that picture.

I noticed that the former DCC do it in almost all their photos, too.

Yes, it looks like it's low as well but she might just be tipping her head down.  "Thirsty" means it looks really dry.

Yeah, I figured that was what you meant, I only quoted you because your comment was the most recent one I saw on Kat's hair 🙂  I wonder whose idea it is/was to make her hair so light, she looks so much better as a brunette IMO.

Agreed...the light hair washes her out and makes her look older.  She's very pretty and I wish they'd let her go back to dark brunette.

The squad also needs an infusion of girls who represent the REST of the world.  Where are the rest of the black girls, the Middle Easter, the Native American, Latina, etc. girls?  There surely must be SOME in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex who are fabulous dancers and have the figure that Kelli claims she wants, if not somewhere else in the world. 

In the current squad we have, besides Ashlee Ford, Briana Baisden and Kat Puryear, Lisa Mills, Alanna Tarango, Kirstin Dodd, Cici Levi, Chandi Dayle and Rachel Wyatt, all of non-European descent (the rest of the world according to you). 9 out of 37. Come to think of it, I really would not know which percentage would be acceptable to begin with.
What is a latina anyway? Someone who speaks Spanish? And what does a language have to do with descent and/or ethnicity?

My point: Jon Secada, Alexis Bledel and Yalitza Aparicio: all latinos!

Come to think of it, I really would not know which percentage would be acceptable to begin with.
What is a latina anyway? Someone who speaks Spanish? And what does a language have to do with descent and/or ethnicity?

I'll start with the language aspect.  Language is a large part of culture and ethnicity and represents a large part of someone's heritage.  I'm not trying to slam anyone who lost access to the language at any age because that may have been their choice (dependent on age) or the choice that their parents made for them.  Still, they may have had access to their heritage through other things.  Not going to go into that debate because it all depends on the individual, their family and the importance that person and their family place on how culture, heritage, language and everything else impacts them and even what the definition is!

Granted, this year is pretty diverse in that a quarter of the squad represents those of non-European descent through heritage and other aspects, but, sad to say, the girls don't LOOK like what the average person thinks of when someone mentions Latina, East Indian, Middle Eastern, etc. (and I can be as guilty of that as the next person).  I'm trying NOT to put a percentage of what would be "acceptable" as that doesn't determine appearance or anything else.  However, the majority of these girls LOOK white or what people think of as vaguely Hispanic/Latina, etc.  They see girls with pale skin and lighter hair.  Even the girls with darker hair have paler complexions.  The girls that aren't African-American, but have some color in their skin seem to have hair that tends towards being more of a light brown (whether through changing the color or highlighting it because of Kelli).  The average viewer, who doesn't know the squad like we do, tends to see pretty "white" girls and a few African-American girls.

It seems that Kelli has gone for the Generic Girl look and away from the more "ethnic"/"cultural"/"stereotypical" girl that DOESN'T look like many of the girls who are of that race.  Granted, I can be as stupid-blind as the rest of society at times (and have worked to get past that), but there are young girls of many races/ethnicities/cultures who are just getting into the dance/cheerleading scene (and who don't know who the individual DCC are or their backgrounds/heritages) and don't see girls who look like them. 

I don't know if I've been able to say what I wanted, but I'm trying and it may take some time.

The biggest and weirdest distraction to me is where they choose to film these #DCCinMotion videos.  Like, WHY the elevator lobby of this building?  It seems weird (and gross!) to be dancing barefoot on this marble floor, and the actual architecture itself isn't even pretty.

In the earlier videos, at least there was a pretty view and sunlight streaming in, but this time they are dancing barefoot (in basic warm up gear, no less) inside a Bank of America public waiting area.  In previous seasons, their outfits would be an "Airport DON’T"

If they are trying to showcase that these girls have talent in dance, they are doing them a disservice by having them dance in such odd locations.  I understand they want to show off the billions of dollars they put into The Star™, but it would look better (and more legitimate) if they just stuck to the dance studio!

PS- to the powers that be, if you're reading this, why not just have the girls perform their solos (or part of their solos) in the DCC training studio and post those instead?  Showcase one dancer a week and you've got 36 weeks of content right there!

agree completely...its distracting to see these in lobbies/hallways, and filmed at weird angles. I think they are trying to be edgy but its not...lol...

So.... the podcast has been refreshed and is pretty different! What are people's thoughts?

I do NOT miss Shannon asking the girls if they have a boyfriend (for the thousandth time)! He was not my best thing.

I thought Courtney got a lot better towards the end of TBAMFT but she was so into the girl talk she forgot to cut the cheerleaders off when they got boring (cue twenty minutes on Molly losing her phone on calendar shoot... the dullest story ever!)

I like Kelli a LOT and wish Judy spoke more, I enjoy Kristi too - I thought I wouldn't love Hailey but she's ok. 

I just wish it was more about cheerleading! The oscars spiel went on for SO long and I know it's Kelli's biggest deal in her life but I could have done without it. Hope they keep the podcast but have more cheerleading segments - I was SO SO happy to finally hear about Amy's probowl experience!

I wonder what made them think that we wanted to hear about anything else.  I mean, did they look at all the questions they are asked on social media about the DCC, read the message boards, and think - gee, no one wants to hear about that?

1) I knoowwwwwww. I'm not a Kelli fan because of her entertainment opinions - I want to know about DCC! Like I really really want to know about DCC. 

2) Ugh lol. She brought up Tina last epi and I just cringed. 

I think Haley needs to intro herself a bit more in terms of "and this is what I do within the cowboys org" as opposed to just a random member of the Jones family... I quite enjoy her contributions but she really needs to bring it back to CHEERLEADING.

I’m still waiting for Kelli to realize that there is more to the team than VK.  Would love to be a fly on the wall around VK and Kelli, while the rest of the team are around.

That was so boring I stopped watching halfway and I usually don’t do that.  Most of those girls are back row caliber dancers - not interesting to watch even though they may be technically fine.

The IG accounts are personal accounts - Brennan posted something similar, as have Alanna, KaShara and Sydney, just to name a few.  There are other booty shots in the calendars and magazine.

I thought TPTB had control over all the girls social media accounts or at least had someone watching them (like was discussed recently about Facebook). I didn't think the girls were allowed to have any personal social media while on the team.

They have an official social media account that the organization sets up, but I've seen this claim on here a few times about the girls not being able to have their own personal social media accounts and that just isn't true. Most of the girls have their own accounts and post whatever they want. I'm sure they're watched, but they're not DCC controlled...and while I think the angle of Hannah's body is too severe to make a good photo, this photo fits within the DCC image so I doubt anyone would look sideways at it.

I don't think the angle is the greatest for her because she looks alarmingly thin, but the TPTB  have featured "butt" shots like this for years in the calendar. Just take a look at Ashton T. posing among the rusty ships from Season 4 (I think) and you'll see what I mean. I wish my butt looked that good!

I totally agree! I am so happy for her! 
Her cheekbones seem to have a lower elevation than in her younger years, hell, than a half year ago, and it makes her face look less round. Her longer hair also gives her a longer face.

Maddie is bringing the glamour in her 5th year, and I am all for it. I always liked her but I always felt like she wasn’t up to par on the glamour department. If she keeps changing like this, who knows how she would look like in her 6th or 7th year!  Maybe she’ll be much more of a confident speaker as well!

After all these years they just figured out that longer hair looks better on her? So much better! Why'd that take so long?

Oddly enough, they just showed a Maddie makeover segment on Pluto. I've always thought her natural curls were better than the "DCC Look".

I always wondered why TPTB didn’t adjust the fit/size/? of the bottom of Hannah’s uniform so she wouldn’t have so much booty ‘cheek’ visible. Not only did it obviously stand out (in a not so flattering way) compared to how the uniform fit on the girls around her, but the improper fit did her a disservice by making her look more bottom-heavy than I think she actually is (or was).
Even if her booty is bigger than most, Hannah’s bikini photo makes her look more proportional than the DCC hot pants did.. but maybe that’s due to the magic of photoshopping..🤷🏼‍♀️😜

Especially considering the fact that in season 10 or 11 during cameo shoot day Kelli told Lisa that someone (face not shown) that there was a lot of booty. It definitely surprises me that she would go from that, which was not as noticeable, to Hannah's about two seasons later.

That and she always comes across as a kind, sweet human being. A photo like this from someone else on the team (not gonna name names) would at the very least get a raised eyebrow from me, but I always have found her to be respectable and the photo would definitely sell a calendar as @Blndee6 mentioned.
