This is what I've been wondering.  What did the out of state/out of town girls do?  Pre-pack all their stuff and look for apartments ahead of time?  I thought it's been mentioned here before that it's difficult to find an affordable and available apartment.  It's the reason why many of the TCC's room together. 

Man, what a short amount of turnaround to move your life to a different state or town.

A realtor could find them a corporate apartment that rents out 30 days at a time.  Then if they make the team they would have additional time to find a permanent place.  If they thought of this, it  would be ideal even for the candidates who didn’t make it to camp. They could determine if they like Dallas, look for a job, and sign up for all of the prep classes until next year.  Dedication!  Lol

This.

I haven't requested the PM (don't want it), but if anything in it could stir up possible legal trouble, I'd stay far, far away from propagating it.

And the same thing could be said about TPTB and trying keep the information from being leaked in the first place. If they were honest about the whole thing, they would not have to worry about inside information coming out. They have no one to blame but themselves when it comes to what is going on behind closed doors in DCC Land. They have to be naïve to think it would never, ever come out.

Plus the fact some of the things that were going on behind closed doors they were involved in could land them in some legal hot water.

Would be crazy if they had the Rookies living in a house together during TC. Now that would be an interesting reality show🤪

A normal job would understand? Not in my world. Every place I've worked at regardless of what your excuse was; you're late. Your pay is docked and it's counted against you like an  absence.

In many of my jobs, they DID understand as long as there wasn't a history of being late or completely missing a shift due to reasons beyond the control of the candidate/employee.  If the employee/candidate has/had a history of tardiness, then that tardiness was often counted against them at reviews and, if the tardiness and/or absences was excessive, they were often fired (after being warned and written up).

As for finding housing, there's literally an apartment complex right across from the Star with availability.  Granted, it's a little more expensive than many of the girls would likely be used to (especially if they've never had to rent a place before) since rents range from just over $1,000 ($1,050 was the lowest price I saw) up to near $2,500 for a 3 bedroom.  The higher rent (and multiple bedrooms) would allow for roommates as well which would cut down on the cost.  Personally, I would try to find an apartment and job in Frisco so I didn't have to deal with the Dallas proper traffic as much (though I've heard the Frisco traffic can be just as bad; correct me if I'm wrong).

But still, they'd have to box up and come out with all their stuff not knowing whether or not they would make it.  That just boggles my mind.  Moving isn't cheap!

i’m sorry but this is bullshit. I work in recruitment for a large company and while this would definitely count against a candidate, i would never disqualify someone for getting stuck due to unforeseen circumstances if that someone had informed me as soon as they realized they were going to be late. Especially if it’s true that two people had the same issue, you can’t punish them for something so stupid... and they’re just cheerleaders, calm your t*ts.

Agreed. It should be easy enough to determine if there was truly a bad accident on the highway, and if 2 girls had the same issue, then it is what it is. Certainly, each should have called once they realized the situation (if the story is true). One time I was on the way to a very important work meeting. Luckily, I was able to see that traffic was completely stopped on a long section of the interstate (that also happens to be a bridge), and I managed to divert and go a different way. However, had I been on that bridge two minutes earlier, I would've been stuck up there for hours because thats how long they had traffic stopped. I get Kelli's zero tolerance policy to an extent. Most people who are late typically are just late because they didn't leave early enough, and no one has time for excuses. However, there is a reason why companies/schools/etc have moved away from zero tolerance policies. Sometimes things truly do happen that are beyond someone's control and not due to carelessness. 

Final interviews are also on a Friday, a work day, and someone may not be in a situation where they can take the entire day or morning off to camp out at Starbucks near the stadium (which I agree is the smartest thing to do if thats an option). This goes back to the absurdity of treating this like a part-time job, which I won't rehash again lol.

I understand your point of view. Sadly it can and will come out no matter what. I personally think the show has done more damage to the organization and the girls themselves. Take care, and have a good rest of your Sunday and have a good week.

I second that!

Some of the posters in the FB groups "claim" to be fans of the show but don't know much about it. The same questions get asked over and over again (ex: Is Tara auditioning again? or What vets are retiring?). One poster claimed it was Simone who was cut instead of Selina.

Or all the posters complaining during auditions how they couldn't find the show on TV cause they "always start the show during auditions."

High waist is def back in.

Lot of same people Just more anonymous here. I left one fbk group bc first of all I hate Facebook, second there was so much backstabbing and trash talking about posters not the show. Even too ugly for my blunt self.

RE: Gabby I was told she was cut for weight mostly and slight personality conflict like she was not rude or hateful but more snarky than DCC sweet and that didn’t come off well with all the yes Ma’am blank stare preferred attitudes. Like she’d snark joke sometimes esp at appearances and it was thought to be crossing the line. Also they have so many tall girls this year she looked out of place. 

I really doubt these are things the girls actually get told about. I don’t believe Gabby got told that her personality isn’t a fit and that they don’t like her body and chose to re-audition. I know most people here claim they get told these things like Keyra was for example, but I don’t buy it.

About Gabby... I loved her from last season and am sickened that she was cut. I realize that she has been on "weight warning," but so have a hundred other girls and they were not cut before training camp. In the words of Kitty Carter, doesn't she deserve the respect of time to get her weight in check?

Gabby is absolutely stunning, her dance ability is stronger than many others on the team, and she is a Latina (God forbid we consider representation of a significantly large population that comprises Dallas Cowboys fans). If TPTB are going to cut one returning candidate - and ONLY one returning candidate - then there must be a darn good reason. So, unless they prove to me that Gabby is eating small children with her breakfast cereal, then I'm in protest mode from now on.

To be honest, the pic of the vets before finals, I didn’t recognize or know the names of the 1st 6-7 vets in the back row, from the right. I had to look up Gabby & still didn’t know her. No more rockstars on the team.

I miss Holly!

Whatever it was I hope it's addressed and not swept under the rug like they did with Olivia S in season 11.

I agree that I doubt that they're told about body type or personality conflicts to their face (actual weight issues - yes). I do think these things (personality conflicts) can have a way of filtering through the grapevine IMO. I could definitely see a situation where girls may have heard that K or J didn't care for them personally, but because it was never told to them directly, they didn't think it's a dealbreaker or a big deal. Then, they find out that their attitude or professionalism got brought up during the judge's discussion. I think Milan's podcast confirmed that K&J are not hands on, so I can believe that some of the vets are blindsided when they get cut for reasons other than getting outdanced by the other finalists.

what should they have done? What would have been fair? They had 20 panel interviews scheduled that day and a lot of people, crew, and logistics in place to make it happen. If one girl is late, they're not going to push back all the other interviews, nor are they going to stay late to interview her on her own. And it would have been unfair to take her into TC without an interview.

Added her to another group if that was possible. That’s what I would have done but I’m a kitten. 😡

I get that people hate her or whatever (and this isn’t just directed at this one comment) but you all need to chill. SO MANY non vets have sat in that first row. Even tcc hopefuls who then have not made it. I specifically remember 2 in the last couple of years because they were friends with my daughter and I was paying close attention but I’m sure they were not the only 2. Both did so in the first year they auditioned even when they were total “nobodies”.

Also, if you get up to go to the bathroom OR are returning after your solo or after being interviewed and walk into the sitting area just as they are starting another solo, you grab the first seat available until it’s over. That is the most likely reason for VK to be sitting in two different seats in two different pics. I know that doesn’t fit with the belief that she’s rude and selfish but it’s still the most likely. 

I’m sure there are reasons to not like her so no need to make something out of nothing. 

Okay, Haley Anderson.

Just one thought on the Gabby situation: last year there were a lot of people miffed because Keyra was cut due to her shape/weight...and then we found out it was (presumably) about her lateness and attitude.

Keeping or losing a spot on the team isn't only about dance, looks and seeming nice on tv, it's also about overall job performance as an employee, and social media gives us no insight into that.

I don't see how that can be done if stuck in gridlock like often happens behind a bad accident. Especially if not near the right side of the road.  Plus would a person be allowed to "abandon" a car for as long as she would be gone?

Agreed. Also, I don't know what the traffic rules are on this specific issue. However, leaving your car in the shoulder or emergency lane, which I assume she would have to do, when there is a terrible accident, and emergency vehicles will like need to travel in that lane, seems problematic. My guess is that she was just stuck, unfortunately.

Based on what we were able to see on SM, Madeline Malloy's solo costume was my favorite.  I absolutely love that color & the top was beautiful.  Although Gina had almost the same color and a very pretty costume of her own, I preferred the simplicity of Madeline's.

What solo costume was your fav?

Looong time lurker, first time poster. From a small town in PA who has been a DCC fan ever since my dad went to a conference in Dallas in the early 80’s and brought me back a deck of DCC playing cards.  Looking back probably not appropriate for a little girl, but they were so glamorous and cool that I became an instant fan, although I am not and never will be a Cowboys fan.  Steelers all the way! 😁. Anyway... we have not gotten CMT in my area for a few years so I have been buying the seasons on Amazon prime, but I don’t want to pay for another frustrating season like last year (even though I own every one except the first two-make them available Amazon!) so I want to say thank you for this forum.  You help me stay in the loop.  I appreciate and welcome all of your information that you share.

I do not think that Gina Campagna is a WOC. She is from Italian descent. If she is a WOC, you have to include people of Italian descent and you have to include Gina Ligi and Christina Riccelli.

If we count the WOC without excluding the 'white passing', we have now in TC 9 girls out of 45, which is 20%:

  1. Alexandra Pena (latin american descent)
  2. Chandi Dayle (south asian descent)
  3. Kat Puryear (african american descent)
  4. Kristen Dodd (latin american descent) 
  5. Alanna Tarango (latin american descent)
  6. Ashlee Ford (african american descent)
  7. Briana Baisden (african american descent)
  8. Cianna Levi (from all over the world)
  9. Tess Guidry (Louisiana Cajun descent)

If were going with white passing Rachel W. Is 1/4 Japanese. This really is pitiful that there isn’t more representation but in my honest opinion the demands are so much mostly women with families who can fund them and are willing to fund playing cheerleader vs school even audition now.

Absolutely. If something is going to be brought up before the judges as a reason not to bring a vet back, then it should have been brought to the vet's attention before finals (directly and 6 months before). On some level however, I think it's strategic and some of these things are purposely not brought to their attention, so the vet won't decide to not audition again. Therefore, Kelli can survey the new candidates first before kicking out a vet who can actually dance.
