Dancing With The Stars: Elimination 1

Friday, January 06, 2006

Last night, they danced for America, and then America voted. now we know which of the ten couples will not be returning next week - Kenny Mayne was eliminated from the competition, as I expected he would be last night. The results were drawn out over a thirty minute results show, that in my mind was unnecessary. The half hour show was filled with performances, including a group performance with all our professionals. In the end, it ended up between Tia Carrere and Kenny Mayne, which shocked me. I expected to be between Kenny and Master P. Check back next week for week's 2 competition and results.

"Dancing with the Stars" - Series 2 (2006)

Saw the Results show last night on ABC. So Master P makes it to the next round where Rap will meet Quickstep. It's a Surreal Life, isn't it? Ashley is so "cute"!

One of the nice things to see is how there are two Black contestants participating in Ballroom ... as indicated in the DanceScape Passion thread, Blacks in Ballroom, there tends to be lower participation from the Black community. Maybe we're seeing a new trend here, as Ballroom Dancing becomes more accessible to everyone across various cultures!

Realize he was horrible BUT ... would love to see if there is a strong enough Rap audience to support Master P.

It would actually have been fun to see his son, Romeo, which would reach an even younger urban group.

Lisa Rinna is beautiful but PLEASE, someone tell her to stop getting so much collagen in her lips. She's gorgeous enough without having such extreme lips. Her husband, Harry Hamlin, was in the audience.

Drew Lachey's brother, Nick, was also in the audience. Too bad he split up with Jessica Simpson ... it would have been a media frenzy to have Jessica and Nick cheering for Drew at the event, and if their MTV show had continued, they could have even visited Drew while he practised for Dancing with the Stars. Alas, we'll never know!

So Stacy Keibler is a World Wrestling Entertainer/Wrestler? Our knowledge of pro lady wrestlers to date had been Chyna Doll (a.k.a. Joanie Laurer - anyone see her on The Surreal Life?) ... steroids & boob job gone mad (now, she would have been an interesting contestant also, although the show would have to be renamed "Dancing with the Freaks" - case in point, look at the photo on the right!). Stacy Keibler looks so slim and flexible ... has anyone actually seen her wrestle?

David Letterman had a funny joke the other day ...

"Dancing" + Celebrities = "Dancing with the Stars"

"Dancing" - Celebrities = "Dancing with the Stars"

On another note, Howard Stern premiered on Sirius radio. It was quite interesting to listen to his interview with Larry King on CNN. He said that he tended to TiVo shows like "Smallville" (about Superman's beginnings). He was also one of the few in the shock media circuit to actually support "Dancing with the Stars" Series I and predicted it would do well. Any Howard Stern fans, here? If Howard produced this show, can you imagine what kind of guests he would bring in (actually, he did say his "coolest" radio guests have been Stevie Wonder and Arnold Schwarzenegger).

It's fun to be able to just talk about Dancing with non-ballroom enthusiasts. Great variety show-styled entertainment! Don't know about you, but we're curious how Master P is going to do in the Quickstep ... and whether he will wear a Tailsuit with a Baseball Cap and Sneaker. Maybe he'll set a new trend in men's Ballroom Fashions.

If you watched the show, please share your comments with our other Dance Addicts!

dance is ... PASSION!

There needs to be a better way to vote so someone like mister p (who can't dance and is so inconsiderate as not to even wear dancing shoes) will be eliminated. People need to be truthful when they vote. That hat needs to go.
