Was season 3 Whitney Isleib's rookie season?  Still trying to figure out how she got on the team with whatever picture Kelli had found of her.

I'm pretty sure that was her rookie year.  Wasn't that when Kelli found pictures of her wearing caution tape as a Halloween costume?  I wonder if she knew people on the inside, someone like Ika was "the girl last night", but at least she was wearing clothes in her "party-girl" pictures.

Social media wasn't as pervasive then as it is now.  Whitney is also the one who got a lot of bad publicity a few years later when she dressed in blackface for a Halloween costume.  But they still kept her on the team, she was a group leader and I believe she was even point of the triangle.  I don't think the DCC could get away with that today.

Yeah I think that's what she was wearing.  I really couldn't get a good look at it.

Think you’re talking about Kandi Harris. I believe she was injured, but don’t know the details.

Any idea what her injury was? Was she sidelined the entire season?

Season 12 episode 9 the one with Jenna and Holly.  Every time I watch this confrontation with Jenna bugs me a little ..not sure if its editing ... They tell Jenna she should have come to them to diffuse the Holly situation but dont expect her to tattle ... if she went to them is that not exactly what she would be doing.  I get the feeling with Jenna that they were more upset with the fact Jenna and Holly were partying together at clubs Holly was underage to get in and in turn socializing with football players . I am sure this has been discussed at nauseam but this episode in currently on and I am bored so I am picking it apart LOL!!!

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, but did this site get rid of all of the episode discussion threads? I’m rewatching season 12 and the whole Jenna/Holly drinking debacle and Id like to see everyone’s initial reactions as they aired. Am I missing something or are they gone forever?

Go to the topic listing page, very top it says past seasons with the season numbers underneath.  If you click on 12, you should get them all:)

Season 4.  The episode when they show the veterans apartments.  FAKE NEWS!  So obviously staged.  But Abigail Klein is gorgeous, adorable, goofy, and seemed so sweet.

Season 6

Eka’s (or however you spell it) blush is so over the top that it could have its own thread on this site! 😂😂 How did no one ever tell her to tone that down?  She looks like a clown 🤡 

I also think Aussie Angela would not have made it had she not had that Australian accent.  The accent got her into camp.  She wasn’t that great IMO 🤷🏽‍♀️ #isaidwhatisaid 😂🤫 (She also literally said her accent got her thru the first round)

And Taylor, oh Taylor!  Lol She just a funny mess to watch!  She deserved to be cut, but she made great TV!

We must both be watching PlutoTV right now, lol. I agree with you about Ika and Anglea's accent definitely helped her out.

Add to that Kalli Fullerton's eye makeup and Breelan's plum (eggplant) eye shadow:)

I'm watching season 8 on Pluto right now (Vivian, volume 1.)

Solo practice at Kitty's. I think the whole Tin Man dance was a planned play to make sure she was featured in the series. Her actual solo, done just two days later, was categorized as powerful. There's no way Vivian could have a choreographed solo ready in just two days. 

There's also the lack of embarrassment she showed when Kitty told her how screwy and awful it was...

SONG request: 

The makeover episode, where Jenelle almost has to have a short bob....the background song is so catchy, but I can't catch enough of the lyrics to find it anywhere. Is anyone familiar with the song?

Kitty choreographed her a new solo and also paid for her (referee) outfit for finals.

Pluto TV is legit. You can watch it on your phone, computer, and smart tv. Totally free and tons of stuff to watch, including all seasons of DCC:MTT.

You don't mention if you have seen Season 14.  CMT.com currently has that on their website for free.

I'm watching Season 14 SG auditions...and for the life of me...I just can't figure out what MR brings to that panel and why they have to keep shoving her down our throats.  I know a lot of people really like her....but I'm not one.  If she never judged or mentored again, I would not miss her one bit.

Besides Meredith O, who was easy to pick out, who are the other cheerleaders in this clip?  Is that Michelle Keys (last one on our right)?

Episode 806:  The beginning of Chelsea Chaney's downfall.  Wonder if TPTB heard what she said in her talking head about being "brought down to a very low level" (I'm paraphrasing) before the office visit?  She should have been cut right then and there if they did.

Watching episode 1008 on Pluto currently...

The way Kelli explains her reasonings for keeping Kat on the team for the final announcement: “She’s made progress, I feel our fans will like her and I like her on this team.” She’s openly admitting she doesn’t take the top 36 most talented dancers each year, but the top 36 she feels would be the best “whole package.” Being on Kelli’s good side is what makes or breaks a lot of girls’ dreams of being a DCC, and that I don’t agree with. Although I do adore Kat, don’t get me wrong!

I think she's said that a few times about different girls, I feel like Kelsey Lowrance was another that she said something similar about.  I don't think that's unique to DCC or even to dance teams in general.  A lot of times someone's soft skills will get them picked for a job.

 

And also, Kat got cut the next year, so *shrug*

What did she say about Breelan - not ready, but they wanted to draw the performer out of her??  Well, that didn't go very well, did it.

I thought Kelsey needed a boost of confidence by being on the team. I thought she really improved as a veteran. She was never going to be their best dancer but she was a great cheerleader and had experience interacting with a range of people.

I think the "Kat" the OP is talking about is current DCC Kat, not former DCC rhythmic gymnast Kat.

I totally agree!  And it seems like she got along very well with her teammates.  She is a good example of not being the best dancer but brought a lot of really good qualities.

I think it's just because she's been on a couple of TV shows.  There have been other alumni who have been just as successful in other ways related to dancing and performing that could mentor.  Plus some of them were there longer than two years.  "Showmanship mentor" just sounds like a bullshit title.  They could get someone else just as qualified.

Her and Danielle will always be two who fit in this category. I'd add Miranda, Jinelle and Nicole Bulcher into this too.

Whilst I normally gravitate towards the best dancers, they also need good dancers who are excellent ambassadors too!

I think the biggest thing that saved Nicole was that, as Kelli said, she didn't have the power, but she never made a mistake.

I've barely seen her rookie year because they never show it on British TV. Probably why I have such a love for Jinelle and Angela, as they're the only seasons we get to see every so often!

Nicole always seemed to be liked by others which helps, whether that's the public or teammates.

And she's so, so freaking pretty.  Much beloved by teammates and a solid ambassador too.  I think she went to Pro Bowl and she's still an All Star several years later too.

I just listened to it.  Most of it is about Big Brother. You can fast forward to 1:25:16 where she starts talking about the Mavs. At 1:27:45 she mentions she auditioned for the DCC made TC twice and was cut. That's all she said about DCC. Also said the new Mavs dance team will be back next year.

Thanks for saving me a lot of blather about Big Brother. I did enjoy hearing her talking about the pay structure of the Dallas sports team dancers.
