DWTS - The Boys!
The girls danced the first night and they set the bar very high. I was so impressed with how well they all danced on the very first night! That never happens. This season is going to be really good.
To start the boys off, Cameron Mathison (All My Children Star) and Edyta (The Body) danced the fox trot. They are a good looking couple...
I think they did a good job, but who can concentrate on the dance when this fine specimen is on the stage????
So, yeah, I hope he sticks around for a while.
Next up was Floyd Mayweather and Karina Smirnoff. Floyd is not only training for DWTS, but he's also training for a boxing match or something so he's very busy.
Well, where do I begin? Floyd looks like he's on ritalin or methamphetamines when he's on stage. Good lord - the man has energy, but he looks like he's boxing more than dancing. He's got some rhythm, but he's not channeling it properly into the dance. They did the cha cha cha and if he can learn to use those hips and that energy properly he might do really well.
Race Car Driver, Helio Castranevez and Juliane Hough (winner from last season) were up next and they did a GREAT job.
Helio was very smooth, he did the fox trot and nailed it. He's very theatrical, has a lot of personality and was a joy to watch. I love Juliane too, she really has a knack for picking out great choreography. They are going to go far.
Albert Reed (Model that I've never heard of) and the youngest person to ever dance in this competition was paired with Anna and they did the cha cha cha.
They did a really cute Elvis themed routine, it was fun, he looked like a stripper out there gyrating those hips and open shirt with chest hanging all out. He's a crowd pleaser but he's not very well known so I'm not sure how he's going to fare in the voting area. He has energy, but he didn't do hardly any actual cha cha cha steps. He's cute as hell though!
Mark Cuban (Billionaire and owner of the Dallas Mavericks) was paired with Kym Johnson who I adore! She was Joey's partner last season and I'd love to see her pull off a win.
I love this guy! He has so much presence. He's really funny and easygoing and fun to watch. They did the fox trot and although I'm not sure that he's the best dancer in the world, he knows how to work a room which is important. He also just had a hip replacement so that might be problematic in the future.
Las Vegas Legend, Wayne Newton and Cheryl Burke were paired up and they did the cha cha cha.
Let's put it this way, Cheryl is NOT going to pull of a 3rd win this season. Wayne is very charming, but he can't dance very well. The cha cha cha is a latin dance and you need to use the hips, he didn't do that very well. He was stiff, but I give him a lot of credit for going out there and he might actually get a lot of votes because he's so damn famous and such a sweetheart and so humble and gracious. So, even though he sucks, he might be around a while (like Jerry Springer was) because he's just so popular.
Okay, and of course this is old news, but Model, Josie Moran was the first star to be kicked off. I didn't think she was the worst, but I will say this, she's a bitch! I was watching her in the audience when she was watching the guys dance and she had such a sour look on her face, she looked like a total stuck up snobby bitch, so I'm glad she's gone. The models are always the first to go. ha ha
I was very sad to see Mark and Kym in the bottom two, so I hope they step it up this week!
