Admittedly, I have little knowledge of Dancing with the Stars. In fact, all I know I gleaned from the 3 hours I watched in the past 2 days. But seriously, Bristol Palin should have gone home.
Instead, former NFL Super Bowl MVP with seven kids Kurt Warner did the Dance of Shame and was sent packing.
Warner isn’t in the same league as Jennifer Grey and Brandy as far as musicality and he doesn’t have the charisma of Kyle Massey. In fact, everyone pretty much knew either Kurt or Bristol was going home last night. Of the two, Bristol looked the most uncomfortable during her dance. Kurt was consistent throughout his dance, while Bristol looked self-conscious at times, as if she realized she looked silly. That’s not a dis — I’m self-conscious like that. But watch Brandi’s commitment to emotion throughout her dances: she doesn’t feel silly and therefore looks great.
I don’t feel like recapping what the judges said about Kurt or Bristol, but suffice to say, Bristol was in last place after the judges’ votes. Therefore she must have received more popular votes from viewers to keep her on the show. How is this possible? One theory: the Tea Partiers are helping Bristol like they helped the Republicans win back control of the House of Representatives.
I think the final two will be Brandy and Jennifer, deservedly so, but I also suspect the popular votes will keep Bristol around at least another week and Kyle will go home next week, which is a shame, because he did a great job with the Insta-Dance jive and he has a great attitude and personality.
In other news, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who said bullying helped him become a success, continued being a bit of a douche-bag by screwing up his apology to the fans and contestants for bitching at Carrie Ann Inaba the night before. Maksim said he was going back to being cool, but then told Carrie-Ann, “Let’s do our jobs.” Host Tom Bergeron quipped, “So being cool lasted 12 seconds.”
The semi-finals of Dancing with the Stars airs Monday on ABC.
NOTE BY KAISER: Also interesting - Page Six has a story today about how Bristol and her dancing partner Mark Ballas are probably boning. Fascinating.
