On the positive side, Leeza's partner is choreographing things that she can actually do. So I'll give her bonus points for that, right before I kick her off for boring me to tears.
The other thing that I'd been waiting impatiently for was Maxim's first "I broke the rules and I'm so sorry and it'll never happen again" choreography. Every season he gets one warning and one stern talking-to (the "this time we're serious!" talk). In this season, I'm impressed that the former happened even before the second contestant was booted off. At this rate, he'll have his moment of "screw it, I know we were supposed to dance the foxtrot, but I decided the jive was better" right about week 7.
I was happy to see Barbie and Ken go. As far as dancing ability, she wasn't the worst. But she wasn't going to win either, and I'd rather keep someone who scores a little lower on the "how much do I want to throw something at the TV so I don't have to watch this anymore" scale.
Chia noticed that during interviews, Samantha Harris asks questions of all the professional dancers except the 18 year old. So now I have to imagine her interviews in my head, and it's not nearly as funny as listening to her in real life. She talks like a valley girl! I love hearing her say, "Oh my god!"
As for next week, I'm ready for Clyde and Billy Ray to go, so I hope they're the bottom two. Clyde just looks uncomfortable and unhappy, and over the last few weeks Billy Ray's self-deprecation has turned into self-denial and maybe even self-loathing. So that's my prediction. Well, either that, or America will keep voting off women until it's just Laila Ali and the six guys, and then they'll vote celebrities off from highest-pitched to lowest-pitched voice. It's nice to know that Laila would still be top two.
