That being said, I rewatched her rookie season and they absolutely loved everything she did from minute one. I don’t know that I watched her dance enough to really see how good she was but they wouldn’t be fawning over her for nothing

I remember she tried out the year before she made it.  The season before you can see her on the field learning the routine during semis...does anyone know if she made it to finals that year?  Also I always found it interesting that they didn't mention her as returning (if I remember correctly) almost like they didn't want to admit the passed her up the year before.  I think the same thing happened with Melissa W, but in her situation, I feel like she looked a little out of shape in semis the year before making it.  

 

disclaimer: Melissa W might not be the one I'm thinking of but it was someone who was a rockstar rookie and it was never mentioned they tried out before

You're right!  I believe it was said that they loved her but she wasn't uniform ready during prior times trying out. 

Kelli Q is one that Kelli was like OMG HOW DID I MISS YOUUUUUUU and Kelli Q had to been like okay so I've tried out like four seasons and you know me from the dance community and the Ice Angels coach does choreography for you but okay cool, thanks for show group!  (I could be projecting a bit here.  Kelli Q is a total sweetheart, but I've got think she got a little bit of DCC whiplash from that experience!)

I was just watching the semi-finals from Season 7 - saw Melissa (rockstar rookie - noticeably heavier), Morgan (also a bit heavier), Hannah (in the same outfit she wore at auditions in Season 8), Tessa, Auto Amy, and Nina (no personality girl that was cut in Season 6 training camp).  But I didn't see Jenn A anywhere.  Am I missing it?

I also can't believe that Chelsea was able to pull all that fake BS on K&J.  I remember watching that season for the first time and getting strong fake vibes every time she opened her mouth.

 Yeah, she sure snowed Kelli which surprised me. I thought Kelli was a better judge of character than that. I thought Chelsea was fake as hell, albeit entertaining. 

Speaking of season 7—They took 39 girls and only had space for 37 in the locker room. So what did they do w/the two extra?  Did they not get their pic on the wall or name on a locker?

I'm rewatching season 13 and how on earth did Jessika become a 3-year vet? It's her 3rd time to finals and she couldn't answer any of the panel's questions and has zero pop on the field. Her and Christina were the two weakest vets that season (worse than Selina and Keyra, who both got cut!).

No way!  I'll have to pay better attention next time.

Selina's cut, though, was more about weight.  She was warned all during the prior season, and then she came back to finals something like 12 lbs heavier.

Yep.  She's in yellow and shown a few times (standing near Jordan while they're learning the routine).  She's only a tad heavier - not really pronounced like Melissa.

Jessika also had a boxy figure (reminds me of Lisa and Meredith) that doesn't look good in uniform imo. She's one of a few that I don't understand how she made the team, much less for multiple years. 

I'm rewatching season 10 and damn Shelbi is kind of annoying. I feel like she thought she could make the team just because she had some 1 and cut DCC friends and was on a high profile all star cheer team.

Girls with boxy figures tend to be the ones most at risk (I'm thinking Allie, Keyra, Gabby, Alex Hermes), even more so when you're short. Even in her TV interview before going into panels, Jessika just seemed so wooden.

I didn't hate Shelbi but she wasn't my fave. That's the season where I wish Kyndall and Courtney would've made it, probably over Simone and Raylee.

Was it ever mentioned that Courtney and Meagan cheered together at Tampa Bay?  I was re-watching their season yesterday and I remembered Courtney had cheered for them, but forgot until Meagan's intro that she had as well.  Strange that they weren't given a Danielle/Jasmine or Tarah/ Savannah storyline.  In fact, I don't remember ever seeing them interact on camera.

I'll keep an eye out, too!  I have spotted Hannah's previous audition.  

 

I also noticed that Shelbi (previous TCC cut) tried out again the next year and got cut at finals.  I believe that was the year that Kelli dubbed the "year of the comeback girl" so it was odd that they didn't mention her at all.  They usually feature past TCCs who had been cut and tried out again.

I loved both of these girls. Meagan had an extra pop and I thought she looked great in the uniform. All that thutt nonsense was ridiculous. Sure, she was stockier but not fat by any means! Maybe if their shorts were a little more flattering instead of hotpants, it wouldn't be such an issue! The blouse gives even the flattest chest a set of boobs so why can't the shorts be that magical?

I thought it was mentioned though I could be wrong. Then again when they did the Tara and Savannah thing they skipped "ballroom" girl, in the K, J, & C conversation the pic they show of her is in a Jets Flight Crew uniform and I'm pretty sure she cheered here the same time as T & S which always made me wonder why she didn't make it past prelims

I think Hannah got away with it because she's long and lean. Meagan's shape was too shapely for Kelli. She always prefers the tall, skinny girls. Her idea of curves is boobs and a butt, although not too much butt.

I absolutely HATED that segment with the vets bowling that was so obviously staged and cringe-worthy (including the military members that came up for autographs), but I did like Jackie Bob's group theme and saying they were going to win using angles and equations.

Kelli Q never got fan vote. Kelli Q is a great example of why I call Kelli Finglas "Dementia Kelli". out of the 3 previous tries that Kelli Q auditioned (before making the team her 4th try), how many times have we seen Dementia Kelli sitting at a table with head shots of the girls and BAM there is the first picture we see is of a certain Kelli Q with a headshot of her face with her name on it and to then hear Dementia Kelli Finglass say "I do not know you. nor know or remember your previous tries ....."

Oh man I miss Jackie on the team. I remember when she left, she used to get invited to sit on the panel of judges for her verdicts etc. Does anyone know if Jackie still gets involved with DCC in that way or in any capacity anymore?

She appeared in season 10 judging show group, but that was it.  And she directs the Jr DCC program with Cassie these days.

Megan (gorgeous and robbed) Didn’t have too much booty, she didn’t have definition between her booty and top of thigh. According to kelli they area blended together. Now hannah had in my opinion one of the best bodies on the team, and a big juicy booty to die for. They just needed to fit her shorts better but for whatever reason they liked her ass hanging out.

In the 2017 season/ Season 12:

If Holly Powell hadn't resigned/cut do you think she would have been given point over KaShara, since both of them were going on year 3. 

 

I think she would have.  She was easily the best dancer on the team at that time and had the sass/sparkle to keep the crowd engaged.  I would have had Holly at point, with KaShara and Jenna as the triangle.

And I was always shocked they didn't give Megan a chance to even see if she could get that booty, I mean come on do a quick search online now and you can find "bubble booty" workouts, I think she could have gotten more definition, Kelli was just looking for an excuse other than "square" which is one of her faves, to cut the girl and of course anytime she can make up a word or description and think she's clever she's going with it.

Yep.  So many people seem to think Kelli meant Megan had a big butt, but no, Kelli said the butt blends into the thigh...hence "thutt."

I think I recall in that one halftime hip hop routine, point switched out a few times & they did have Holly there, but Holly never would have been permanent point since they put teacher's pet Kashara there.

Yes, the hip hop halftime routine.  A few minutes in, Holly moves to the front.  She is very engaging and knows how to play to the audience.  She would have been a great point.

I love me some Jackie Bob.  I didn't see her rookie season, so after watching the video, I was surprised how it appeared she may have been a contender to be cut.  She was basically a team captain by the end, so I had always pegged her as someone who was a surefire selection from day 1.

I don’t know. I don’t think she would’ve jumped Kashara once Kashara got point. However, had there not been all of the drama, and Holly had returned for year 4, I think she would’ve been in a prime position for point. The original formation the year she quit had Jenna at point with Kashara and Lacey on the side and Holly behind Jenna. If everything went smoothly, I think it’s likely that Holly would’ve moved into Jenna’s spot after Jenna retired (assuming Erica was also gone). 

I know that Kashara was a Kelli favorite, but I don’t think there’s any way that she would’ve gotten point over Holly, Jenna, OR Erica if not for all three of them having issues. That’s not to denigrate Kash at all. She stepped up, and lots of people loved her at point, but before all that went down, there’s nothing to suggest that she was even in consideration.

As we know, Jenna was being "punished" and did not get point.  That was Jenna's last year.  The following year, had Holly stayed, I do not see teacher's pet Kashara getting demoted in favor of Holly.  If Holly stayed after that, THEN I believe she would have gotten point.  If ERICA stuck around, however, this is a moot point (pun not intended LOL), she would have gotten it.

Kashara was not a popular choice for point by many, but I think she grew on a lot of us. Lol. And then compared to the Amy/Maddie show, Kashara was perfect! Lol. 
 

Outside of Jenna, I’m trying to think of who made the final squad that year that I would have preferred as point over Kashara. Hindsight always 20/20, of course. Maggie and Robin were both great, Lacey popular with some but like Heather, lacks that special pop.

Ok. I don’t think we disagree. I think the scenario that you laid out with Holly as a 5 year is likely.

I think there’s different hypotheticals being floated, and we may all be responding to different ones lol. I thought the initial premise from several posts back was whether Holly would’ve ever been made point. I assumed that the question considered a “DCC world” where the Holly/Erica/Jenna drama didn’t happen. In that case, I think Holly would’ve gotten point as a 4th year, after Jenna presumably retired after being at point her 6th year. Who knows what Erica would’ve been doing lol!

Now, had only Jenna (and Erica) gotten in trouble and not Holly, I think Holly would have gotten point as a 3rd year over Kash. Although that scenario is so hard to imagine, since the Jenna/Holly stuff was so intertwined, with Holly actually being the one who had more issues.
