Recommended Posts

Gleb Savchenko is a Russian dancer and choreographer, and was a professional dancer on the BBC One dance series Strictly Come Dancing but now he's with DWTS!

I know you're only going by the official bio, but he started out on our DWTS before he was transferred to Strictly.  It's interesting that the official bio omits that little bit of information.

Thank you.  I thought I was imagining that I saw him on DWTS previously.  I don't think he lasted long though did he?  Maybe that's why it's been omitted.

He got eliminated in week 3 then was demoted to troupe before getting kicked all together. I'm pretty sure he had personal stuff happening as well, while he was on the show he cheated on his wife and she outed him on social media. Hardly the greatest of resumes!

And under those circumstances, it sure is a great idea to come back to dance with a celebrity who is notorious for her revolving-door love life, and choreograph an inappropriately sexy Viennese Waltz for her as her first dance.

BTW, after several DWTS gigs in English-speaking countries (he was on the Australian version as well), you'd think his English would be much better by now.

The story with Gleb and his wife is pretty bizarre though. He made a dance video with some woman, then his wife accused him of cheating on twitter. I don't know if he actually cheated or his wife is batshit crazy. Maybe both? LOL

I don't remember Gleb from his previous stint on DWTS, and this has nothing at all to do with his dancing, teaching or choreographing abilities...........but he is a spitting image of the main character in the very first porn movie I ever saw.  I remember that man well because he kept smiling at the camera while going about his acting chores.  Don't know how long it's going to take me to recognize him as a dancer, but I'm enjoying my giggling fits and trips back to the past.

Gleb was the lucky pro who got Lisa Vanderpump on his first go. She tried, but she was kind of stiff when she danced.

He also was on the Russian DWTS last year, with his wife as a judge. 

I don't think his English is bad. He has more of an accent than the other Russian pros, but he's still fine. I don't know how I feel about him as a pro yet, though. I wasn't watching when he was with LVP.

He is probably the best looking pro.  That is both a good thing and a bad thing I imagine.   When he was partnered with Jana (Jenna?) there was definitely a lot of chemistry going on. That must have been tough for his wife if she already had trust issues.

Arike's going to have a challenge drumming up votes:

 

"... Ogunbowale and Notre Dame have to abide by NCAA rules that forbid athletes from making money off their likeness.

Emily James, the NCAA's associate director of public relations, told USA TODAY Sports by email Friday that an NCAA membership committee "provided direction allowing for Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale to participate on this season of Dancing With the Stars."

However, Ogunbowale can receive prize money from the show. How? As James said, the prize money would be for her dancing achievements, because they are unrelated to her NCAA "basketball abilities." "

The whole article is at : https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaw/2018/04/13/dancing-stars-notre-dame-arike-ogunbowale-ncaa-rules/513985002/

 

ETA:

BTW what's up with Gleb and all the cheesecake pics on Instagram?  Did he take a page out of Henry's book?  LOL! He seems completely obsessed with undies pics of himself (dancing with a little dog in his tighty-whiteys!?!).

Maybe not. Notre Dame fans can be as loyal as Cubs fans, promo or no.

I’d be more optimistic if she were with anyone but Gleb though. He only seems to know how to beefcake, not create memorable dances or show off his partners.

 

(He’s worse than Henry I think, he sells an underwear calendar of himself every year!)

It's probably a bad thing that my first thought was "... oh barf."

I think she would have faired well any of the other male pros besides Gleb. Gleb is all about sex and this young girl deserves better than that. I just know he isnt going to do right by her.

I am lolling at Glebs Instagrams of trying to amuse himself in South Bend in April in the snow. Haaaaa, have fun, it’s going to be cold and/or muddy and there’s literally nothing to do if you’re not a student on campus.(I went to ND, the only thing that helped you make it through Aprils was that you usually had finals to keep you occupied and student parties to keep you distracted. I can’t imagine what he’s going to do to keep himself busy between rehearsals.)
