The announcement of the new season's cast is (oddly) being released - or buried - on a Friday afternoon before the Olympics begin on a competing network.

Is anyone else excited as to who will be dancing?

by Anonymousreply 22312/01/2012


by Anonymousreply 107/27/2012

It's an all-star line-up:

Bristol Palin

Pamela Anderson

Kelly Monaco

Melissa Rycroft

Shawn Johnson

Kirstie Alley

Joey Fatone

Helio Castroneves

Drew Lachey

Emmitt Smith

Apolo Ohno

Gilles Marini

I so hope they don't pair the lovely Tristan with Bristol Piglin. He's such a nice guy to everybody so I bet they will. He's probably the only one who would put up with her.

Sorry, Bristol is dancing with Tristan. She specifically asked for him.

by Anonymousreply 807/27/2012

No, they always pair Tristan with the older ladies.

Which means either Kirstie (but she probably only agreed to do it if she could once again dance with Maks) or Pamela Anderson.

I bet Pam would like him - she loves men with lots of tattoos.

Either way, the woman will eat poor Tristan alive.

If Bristol asked for anybody (or if they care who she asked for), I'm sure it's her old partner Mark or his best bud Derek, who's already won 3 trophies and can make anybody, even Ricki Lake, look good.

I'll bet that the added contestant is Sabrina. People are still commenting about how she left too early. This will be her second chance. (and she'll probably win the thing.)

Carson will come back somehow as a commentator or feature reporter or something.

Apparently they haven't assigned partners yet, it'll be interesting to see who gets who. Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough were both at red carpet events over the weekend and were asked. Cheryl's got three former partners (two champs, Drew and Emmett) and finalist Gilles Marini.

Helio and Apolo should be interesting since both won with Julianne Hough who isn't on the show anymore (she won back to back her first two seasons on the show).

Please don't let poor Tristian get Bristol. Or Kirstie. He must be so tired of coaching older ladies or ion Nancy's case, old AND bitchy.

Emmet won for two reasons, both connected. He can't dance - he thinks looking like he wants to hump something shows "commitment." And he gets approval from patronizers.

Pam? She took the job, like the whore she is. She didn't care how long it would last. In fact, being a whore, she prefers it when they get done quicker. She looks good? Please. She's ravaged and ill and operated on. Sad mess.

Monaco is a selfish, angry twat. She exudes meanness and entitlement.

Fat One couldn't shut up about shitting his pants. That's supposed to be funny?

Alley and Palin close the worst of the lot. Alley's $cio lunacy masks the monster underneath. And Palin really thinks every vote against her is hate speech against America and her "mom."

by Anonymousreply 6410/10/2012

The one I'm most sick of is Derek Hough. He is fucking ridiculously over-praised - every. single. fucking. season.

He and his fat partner, Shawn CowJohnson were ridiculous. They were out of sync, out of step, and broke hold numerous times. And yet they were declared the "best dance ever!" and the "best dance in 15 seasons of American AND UK DWTS!!!" What a crock of fucking bullshit.

If they were so fucking great, why did they get a total score of 26? Ridiculous. And Derek's faux sincerity? He needs a good slap in the face.

Helio is ridiculously hot. I can't believe they sent him home. He was actually a very good dancer! But I knew the judges had it in for him, based on their comments.

I'm happy Drew went home. He was annoying. So entitled that the judges were underscoring him, and that he "deserved" higher scores. Little shrimp midget nobody. Fuck him, I'm glad he's gone.

I think Gilles is gay and has a beard. He pings even in a foreign language. I don't buy that he's straight at all. That said, he is GORGEOUS, and I want him to win. Shawn the cow Johnson never should have won that season, and Gilles was robbed.

I'm over Kirstie, though Maks is much more subdued this season. I think he finally learned how to hold his tongue, in order to pacify the judges. If it were up to me, though, Kirstie would have been gone already. She sucks.

I thought Kelly Monaco would go home this week, but her dance saved her. She and Val REALLY seem to have a connection, and they almost look like they're in love. Kelly has an awful personality, and she doesn't even try to hide it. That could explain why the judges dislike her.

I don't even know that girl partnered with Tony, so I can't discuss her. I just hope she doesn't stay too long.

The fat Disney girl also should have gone home, instead of Helio. She's awful, and she seems to be a bitch, behind that faux Disney exterior.

Speaking of fat Disney, geez, I thought Kyle Massey would be much thinner, with all that dancing he's doing with Lacey Schwimmer. He's HUGE! And he's not even that great a dancer.

I hate Emmett. He is so fucking smug, and his attitude sucks, as if he's above it all. Funny thing is, he can't dance for shit. There are so many left that I would be glad to see gone, and he's one of them.

I think Bristol is the worst dancer, but at least she tries. Also, I don't want to see her go because I want Mark to do well. He always seems to get screwed, in terms of partners.

Apolo was kinda funny doing his gay imitation. At first I thought he was being dumb, but then I remembered that his dad is gay, and he is probably WELL versed in gay mannerisms.

I'm not thrilled with most of the contestants, so I have to say that Gilles was my pick from day one, and he still is my pick to win. He was robbed the first time around (like Richard from Top Chef), and therefore deserves the win this season.

If Derek and Cow Johnson win, I will no longer watch the show. Period.

by Anonymousreply 6510/10/2012

[quote]If they were so fucking great, why did they get a total score of 26? Ridiculous.

They were penalized because they not allowed lifts and they broke hold on purpose. New seasons they can't do lifts because everyone is a novice and they are afraid someone will get hurt. But these guys all lasted long enough to do lifts in their season, so it should be allowed.

[quote]I think Bristol is the worst dancer, but at least she tries.

Oh fuck you, she doesn't try at all. She's clearly there for the money. The longer they are there, the more they make. She shouldn't be there at all and Mommy sitting front row will guarantee her a place in the finals. Obviously Mark can't stand her for a reason.

by Anonymousreply 12711/20/2012

I don't think anyone thinks any of the stars come close to Derek with regard to choreography (maybe Mark/Max think different and maybe Shannon is close). Pairing him with Shawn, whose natural athletic ability to make her body do all the little sharp moves and sweeping grand gestures he puts in was genius. Not really fair, but look at their dances. Only that trio wasn't nearly perfect and it was still awesome to watch.

You see it even more in the group dances that Derek choreographs, where the other stars just look better than they usually do. Hate to lose the beauty and perfection of that pairing, but it really would be interesting to see Derek teamed with a Kirstie or Nancy Grace type for a change. He doesn't seem smug about it, but let's see him challenged.

That said my guess is Apolo and Kelly are going home tonight and I wish it was Kelly and Emmit. I just get such an icky feeling from Kelly and Val. It's going to come down to Kelly and Shawn for dance points, but Shawn and Emmit for popularity and I will be really pissed if Emmit takes the trophy.

So glad the American public came to their senses and didn't vote for Emmitt.

Those soap-lovin' hausfraus have carried Kelly all the way to the finals. Wouldn't it be a hoot if the first DWTS winner is also the All-Star winner? It would be karmic closure, and a big FU to the judges who consistently score her lowest.

How lovely to give Derek an featured solo and probably an unfair advantage. First time all girl final, Kelly, Melissa and gym girl. I guess Datalounge won't be watching.

Valentin Chmerkovskiy is so hot! I just can't keep my eyes off of him that it hurts!Its obvious he and Kelly are really hot and heavy for each other. Even Derek looks hot this season as well!WOW! Last but not least, Apollo! a really hot guy!WOW!

Are any of the professional dancers gay besides Louie? It seems like they are all straight womanizers or married.

r148, I have been a fan of Apolo's moreso this season than his first season. Although I did like his Rumba a lot I hated his circus shit dance. I hated his 50's dance the week before. He had it coming.

Kelly is very good and way better than Emmitt. If Apollo couldn't be in the finals, then it should be Kelly over Emmitt. I'd rather have Kelly and Apollo in finals over the gymnast who just a gloried dancer anyway. She has had years of training and working with a Choreographer for sport.

Get in line, R152. I felt those feelings for him four years ago when he first danced on DWTS, and it hasn't subsided.

by Anonymousreply 15311/21/2012

Apolo had the bad luck of getting a very weird dance fusion exercise with terrible music hence the circus number.

And then Apolo's partner had to figure out choreography to go with the weird dance fusion number and awful music. Bad luck for Apolo.

Apolo's partner did poorly with the weird choreography she came up with for the unfortunate dance fusion number.

Apolo did magnificently in his last romantic number. Blew everyone away.

Apolo got gyped. I am really sorry he didn't make it to the finals.

Apolo's pro partner kind of let him down, just as the red haired russian woman lets her partners down (Evan Lysacek) and how the red-haired russian woman's husband let Marie Osmond down at the end with the HORRIBLE raggedy anne doll number a couple seasons ago.

I despise Melissa.

Speaking of Anna's husband Jonathan Roberts, I really miss seeing him on the show. He has a great ass and a furry chest. They just kept saddling him with shitty partners, and I guess he just said screw it, I'm not going back if they don't give me a contender.

Kelly has improved tremendously since her first go-round.

I think Shawn is fantastic and Derek is a wonderful choreographer but most of their routines have less to do with dance and more to do with gymnastic stunts. I dont know why they didn't do the Tango instead of the routine that the judges hated. Same with Melissa and Tony. All the lifts distract from the actual dancing. Kelly and Val actually dance. Kelly may not be the best dancer but she really tries and she is fun to watch. I 'd like Tony to win because he has the sweetest personality and he puts his heart and soul into every routine. BTW, has any one noticed that Brooke has gotten markedly bitchy since the news broke that she has thyroid cancer? Some of her remarks to the stars while they are waiting for the results are out right disses. "Kelly, everyone knows you can't dance for shit but here you are week after week. Do you feel bad that you will probably win because all the desperate housewives who vote for you really think you ARE Sam McCall and that you LOVE signing autographs on those crappy Soap Cruises that Disney makes you go on?

I haven't heard about this - but I sure as hell would not be able to mask a life threatning illness while speaking to someone about a fucking dancing show!

Other than that, I actually agree with everything you've said. Shawn is just doing gymnastics out there; Melissa and Tony were doing mostly lifts (which were distracting) and Kelly was the only one dancing.

That being said, I really want Tony to win. He keeps saying he's been on for 14 years and really wants to win. I like him and hope he does.

Melissa Rycroft? Someone who got dumped by the Bachelor is a "star?" Really?

She only made it on the show in the first place cause Nancy O'Dell and Jewel both got injured just prior to the season beginning and Melissa was still a hot topic since the Bachelor dumping just happened. Melissa and Holly Madison were last second picks to be in the cast.

Melissa was also a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and has dance training so of course she was going to do well.
