Show Format: Irritations and Fresh Ideas

I do not think Melissa the Mentor knows a lot about showmanship. She is probably told what to say and do with the girls. She says a lot of things Kelli, Judy, group leaders, dance instructors, and veterans on the squad tell the TC Candidates. I do not think she has a lot of say so who does or does not make the team. CMT is own by ABC, and ABC of course has Dancing With the Stars. ABC wins because they can constantly remind us Melissa won DWTS, so they get to plug their show, so it is a win-win situation for all. I also do not think Judy, Charlotte and Kelli are happy Melissa is there. I would rather see former DCCs (except for Cassie and Tina) working with the girls.

They have plenty of All Stars (not to mention upper year vets) who could mentor girls (and actually know/have experienced current conditions).

Tina is. BY FAR. my least favourite guest. She's always so mean but adds zero value. 

See I LOVE her! I can totally picture her and I sitting around talking. The old "if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me and let's talk" type of thing. I think she is hilarious, she says it like it is, and she's not mean about it (like Kitty, but I like her too). I really appreciate people who speak their mind (probably because I do). 

My least favorite "guest" (if you can call her that) is Charlotte. She's boring and acts like a cult leader. "Let's touch the star!" Add in Sarah "Horse-Face" Gourley too, I never liked her or saw her appeal. Blech.

I'd like to see:

Ep 1 - initial auditions and semis, including a note on those who got a pass

Ep 2 - swimsuit, vet prep, finals - and release the full solos on the DCC site when it airs.  I love the idea of them giving a technical scholarship for someone who is a great entertainer but needs some more technical classes

Ep 3 - classroom and initial cut - VK, who doesn't stand a chance against the sheer amount of tried and true pro and college team talent. That way she's out of our hair, she can actually maybe try out for her university team, and Kelli has something legit to say to Tina. "Yeah,  VK  HAS a chance, but I didn't expect the caliber and she was simply outclassed. Maybe encourage the uni team for a couple years?"

Throughout the years, people have threatened to quit if X or Y makes/doesn't make it.  I respect that.  I've just laughed my way through that.  For me the deal breaker is this new ridiculousness of advertising Cowboy Fit or whatever it is called.  I don't live in Dallas, and if I did I would never spend that kind of $ on a "see and be seen" gym.  I daresay that the majority of the viewers are not potential members, so let up on it already.  If we continue to see more "commercials" and less dance - I am GONE!

I feel that way when they tour the Star, touch the Star, gaze at the Star🤩

Just give Cowboys Fit its own show and be done with it.  Problem solved.

That was just cult-like and nauseating.

I would love to see how they pick the group leaders and what women they put in each group. Who are the second leaders? They've never shown them being announced. And group practices would be nice (in normal clothes, not their cult uniforms tptb make them wear)

Would definitely love to see the groups work together without K and J there. Just want to see different Dynamics.

I don't need or want anyone seeing me when I'm looking like a hot mess on the treadmill.  Same reason I've never understood the gyms with the plate glass windows in front - I would hate that.

The Cowboy fit promo HAS to go. I can't believe a single viewer has seen that awkward product endorsement and thought "gee I definitely need to become a member." Waste of goodwill for the brand and so boring for the viewers. Any of the staged convos between the girls is always horrendous - they're beautiful and I LOVE them but they can't act.

100% agree. One of my doctors is “literally” a stone’s toss from The Star.  It’s very ostentatious in my opinion. A few of my friends work out there, but they live closer to the area than I do.

Frisco used to be a water tower with “home of the fighting coons” on it and a little off name Dairy Queen. I can’t believe what it has turned into. 

As for the show, stop shoving promos down our throat and show the dancing!

Yes to more dancing, group leaders and 2nd leaders doing their thang that we hardly get to see, group selections process, more solos, and fewer cheesy staged ads and convos x 10! I'd also love to see more about the work the vets put into finals prep--a segment showing some of the ladies rehearsing and critiquing solos with each other, making costumes, talking about their meal prep and workouts (no, I don't mean some cheesy My Fit Foods plug, just talking heads of the ladies discussing their diet habits or them talking about it as some of them prepare a healthy meal together. Show us more of the work that goes into staying on the team! I'd also like to see a lot more of vets working with TCCs dance-wise. Also, I'd really love to see some of the makeup consultations they get before the makeover. Like, you're using the wrong shades here, or, here's how to make your smokey eye look sexy and not like you're rolling in from partying all night, or, here's how to really play up your best features. That's more than just the before and after shots with some hair foils and cute Marshall consult scenes thrown in. I'm really curious how the rookies learn to do their own version of the DCC look.

I am sooooo sick of Thunderstruck. I love me some AC/DC, but enough is enough. Furthermore, I think the Cowboys can choose a much better beer than Bud Lite. 🤢 Raise your standards, guys! Even Bud regular from the tap is better and that's not saying much. 

(I copied this quote from Tinabee in a different topic...)

I like Thunderstruck, but come on.... they've dance THE SAME ROUTINE since 2011!!!   That's EIGHT YEARS doing the same routine!!  I do realize that they've made a few tweaks along the way, but essentially, it's THE SAME ROUTINE!!  Please, start fresh! Do something else!!

Also... When the girls dance to Thunderstruck, there are multiple shots of Cowboys making plays on the big screen.  Can't they just show the girls routine while they dance?  It's only 5 minutes at most.. aren't they "world class" enough to have 5 minutes of uninterrupted screen time??

A lot of their side line dances have the same moves in the same sequence as Thunderstruck. Also the moves they do in Thunder are also recycled from previous pre-game performances. Why bring in a guest choreographer if you're sticking to the same thing?
