DCC Q&A: Mysteries of the DCC World

Recommended Posts

Maybe I’ve worked in the fashion industry too long, but A LOT of merchandise gets destroyed to protect a brand. It’s wasteful, yes, but part of the cost of doing business. I would still say it has less of an overall impact than fast, disposable fashion though.

I’m guessing they don’t want actual team wear ending up on eBay, at Goodwill, getting worn by God knows whom — not good for the brand. It’s different from the licensed merchandise available to the masses.

They may do with the old practice uniforms what is done with items at national championships such as Super Bowl.  Both teams have sealed & guarded boxes of shirts, hats etc for the players.  That’s why you immediately see the players wear a championship t-shirt & hat.  The losing team’s t-shirts etc are whisked away & are shipped off to a third world country.  Interesting, I saw a video featuring a mission trip where a child had a somewhat dirty shirt featuring the wrong being the champions of a Super Bowl my hometown team won.  Also we know people involved in the shirt manufacturing & my hubby has worked for 10 days at a Super Bowl.

Not sure if this belongs here (it might should be in "Past Seasons" but it's a Kitty question):  Did Olivia Sharber Carter get cut or retire? Someone pls PM me if this shouldn't be discussed here.  Thanks.

Thanks.  Was she in the process of separating/divorcing Kitty's son at the time or did that come later or do we know?

I heard somewhere on this board that Olivia was married to Kitty’s son but on Olivia’s instagram she has pictures of her new fiancé, a man named something sunderland, or something like that. So, I’ve been wondering about her marriage to the Carter guy.

She divorced him because he was "supposedly" cheating on her. It was talked about on the forums here when it happened.

This thread was full of juicy gossip before ShellyB showed up to be a gatekeeper.  I've always known there HAD to be more drama behind the scenes than is shown.  I have reached my limit of watching TV shows with a lot of drama but I do enjoy reading behind the scenes information to "supplement" the show and give it new depth.  Now it seems like that is gone.

I agree she does have a lot of insider knowledge but I'd rather hear the stuff she can't share. It's too bad that she decided to use her real name but then again, if she hadn't, I'm sure people would have been able to figure out who it was.

Lol... @Opine you’re welcome. Not sure that I stopped any gossip, hell’s bells, there’s a ton of it on here! 🤣 @Anduril, I used my real name because I’m a pretty straight shooter. I answer the questions that don’t compromise the episodes. There are some things I am not at liberty to discuss, and I’ve either ignored or declined answering. I don’t really talk about what is posted here, as there are a few that occasionally read on their own.

@ShellyB, In a recent episode Kelli commented on someone (Shaina I think?) that she looked good for the sideline dances but not on the field, so it made me wonder; has there ever been anyone on the squad who regularly did not participate in pre-game but did sideline dances?

Ever since I saw those DCC Campout photos with the girls bare faces I've been wondering, do the girls wear stage makeup on the show and/or on game day? Are the girls given a tutorial as to how to apply their makeup? 

There have been some serious DCC level ups in the past, i.e. Jinelle (even after the makeover episode). How is that accomplished? Do you sit the girls down and walk them through a step by step process on their new DCC look?

In season 1 (2006) Kelli invited back most of the judges from finals to the studio to watch the girls dance.  I remember Brooke and Kandi got called into Kelli's office and told they did great with their weight loss and the judges liked them. Have they done that on any other season or just this one?

I always had "heard" that Loni did the field dances but not the kickline.

I specifically remember videos of the pregame show where Loni ran off the field before the kickline. It looked really bad, like she’d just remembered that she left the iron plugged in on top of a pile of kindling and had to abandon the team mid-performance to make sure her house didn’t burn down.

But yes, another example of Kelli making a huge exception to the alleged high standards of the team to accommodate one of her faves who didn’t measure up. It was clear throughout training camp that Loni’s kicks were super low. Apparently that’s only a deal breaker if you aren’t one of Kelli’s pets.

I think Shelly came on her and said that was just a rumor and "that" video wasn't showing her running off the field.

I wonder if it was Brooke running off the field cause she couldn't do kick line.  If she had surgery in August, I don't know if she would be back on the field by then??

Well...back in the day when there were 36 on the team, but only 32 performed pregame, kinda. My Rookie season, some girls switched at halftime...so some did pregame and first two quarters and the switched with their counterpart, who did the 2nd Hal of the game. I think the 4 alternates got to do at least 2 pregames and I think they did all the halftimes. I don’t really remember if we had designated alternates for games my 2nd season. When Kelli took over as Director,  she did away with alternates.

Was that in part because of the temperature inside Texas stadium? I can’t imagine pregame, four quarters and occasionally a halftime show in that heat! Been watching early seasons on Pluto and those conditioning exercises with Jay looked positively melty.

Nope...that’s just how Suzanne ran the squad. And the heat in the early seasons of the show wasn’t nearly as bad as when I cheered. Around 2000, they rolled in huge industrial fans for all the corners. They were hot and sweaty...but could catch a breeze every once in a while. My tears and prior, melted.

Not really because when there was a threat of weather, rain or snow, the turf was covered by a tarp until just a few hours before kickoff.

It's been bothering me for a while that this show was moved to Friday night, which is where shows go that have run out of steam. I know the ratings are high, but i wonder if it's a question of WHO'S  watching. Older people?

In the age of DVR, it doesn't matter as much when a show is on... Shows like Hawaii 50 have always been on Friday and continue to do well...

I went to the Colts vs Broncos game yesterday and it was my first time ever going to a NFL game. I watched the cheerleaders trying to pick out whose a rookie vs rockstar vets lol. I want to go see the Cowboys for the DCC but I live in Indy 🤷🏼‍♀️

I love the new squad announcement video this year!
