Derek is such a tacky dresser. Even for a ballroom dancer. Black is a better color for his yellow skin though. He looked stupid in that green mess - yellowbone skin mixed with shiny shamrock green suits = Grinch tacky, tacky, tacky. Don't wear purple again either Derek. Keep your corsages small.

Nope. Not at all. Reddit loves and is pushing for Iman. They hated Bobby (if I remember correctly).

by Anonymousreply 45November 9, 2021 1:35 PM

My takes:

Jimmie was always really good but I think he did all he could. A great contestant.

Olivia needed to go. Not interested in her "story", or at least the parts they wanted to show 🙄 Good dancer.

Iman & Daniela are stellar. She's such a dark horse & I love that they challenged her with a partner so big. He's leaving it all behind and just diving in. He gets better at the basics every week and has tried (and succeeded) at a lot of challenging moves.

Jojo....I will say this: her years on Dance Moms clearly gave her the knowledge & skills to learn routines and NAIL them. There's no room for sluffing, in her mind. She & her partner have been been really good at setting a tone (the friendship of Sandy & Frenchy, the horror of Pennywise & the kid etc).

Melora is consistently great. Love her.

Suni FINALLY got some shit together this week. During the dance-off she actually looked like an adult performer. She's always danced like a teenager and carried a sweetness around.

Cody & Cheryl have been the least impressive.

by Anonymousreply 46November 9, 2021 4:10 PM

Okay, when Jojo & Jenna had their first dance, Len said something about there being too much "gimmick". Did he mean the part where Jojo lifted Jenna, turned her 180 degrees, then spun around in a rather "scissor sisterly" way?

Great takes, R46. Nice to know that someone knows what they're talking about. I love Daniella too. She's the kind of pro that won't last for long because she hasn't developed a fake persona. She IS however the most decorated ballroom dancer of ANY of them. And not 15 years ago either. Iman is a great partner for her and a difficult man to choreograph. He can cha cha too - but they're size difference is a big challenge. He and the endlessly annoying Kloots really met the Janet Jackson challenge best in my opinion.

Melora deserves to make the final and if she can keep up her strength - she could win. She's the kind of contestant who deserves to win. She's a good dancer and great performer. Not young and not a ringer.

Jojo and Jenna are fascinating. A great pairing. But when Jojo talked about singing Queen LIVE in her "concerts" last week I remember why I can't stand her. She's a manufactured talent and not very talented. She does have a real blossom of sex going on. Not the fake kind. We can see it between her and Jenna. And it's a turn on. Jojo is so dominant, but Jenna is their boss. It's a sexy dynamic and they portray characters well. Jojo can't sing. But the reality show dance winner CAN dance.

Amanda Kloots is pretty much flawless with the low slung ass Alan. What a beautiful body he has. They are both FAKE as FUCK.

Iman beat three professional dancers, thereby fulfilling the original premise of the show - to take non-dancers and train them to dance. Having three pro dancers in the finale totally turns the show into something it shouldn't be. The year Bones won, none of the finalists was a pro: Bones - a deejay; Milo Manheim, a Disney channel kid who was still in high school; and Evanna Lynch who played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films. At least they were not ringers.

Agree that the spirit of the show was not to have professional dancers competing. Though I seriously question how that lumbering filthy fool Cody was ever a professional dancer - he wouldn't be considered a good dancer at a friend's wedding.

Iman's mother was very cute and is a DWTS superfan. She must be thrilled he won. Also Iman's partner worked her ass off and was quieter (and better) that old 'ho Cheryl and those Mormon breeder brats. Nice for her to win too.

Very nice ending.

Edited to add to R160- She went by Kloots-Larsen when she started on Bullets Over Broadway, so who knows why the marriage broke up.

Not really R162. That didn’t happen until Nick caught Covid.

[QUOTE]Abby Lee is smiling that that little twat JoJo and her odious mother were sent home empty-handed.

Well empty handed except for the $300,000 that she'll promptly pay taxes on.

JoJo is on The View today. Her segment is next.

Listen to her whoring out on the AMAs, begging for DWTS votes.

It’s all fixed so this nonsense about votes is fiction.

I worked in daytime TV years ago and DWTS would book the contestants weeks out for when they got “voted off.”

R167, unlike Iman having LeBron James and the other NBA stars shilling for their billion followers to vote for him? But, leave it to DL to shit on the lesbian and the first same sex contestant. It must have been hard for producers to pick which group to please, though. I hope they didn't strain themselves.

The most moving part, and why Siwa should have won (beyond being a better dancer by about a million miles), was the part where Bruno said that he wished someone like her had been around when he was a little boy because it would have made being a little gay boy easier. But, I'm sure the jolly stomping giant did the same for all the other potential jolly stomping giants out there.

R170 Jojo losing is literal violence!

by Anonymousreply 171November 23, 2021 6:59 PM

Lolol r171.

A beautiful blonde femme lesbian likely wouldn’t have done shit for me as a gayling. Jojo will probably end up marrying a man - all those kids are on the spectrum with their sexuality. Let’s check in when she’s 35 and see if she’s still calling herself gay…..

Regardless, Jojo will be fine.

R172, then you must have grown up in a more accepting environment than a lot of other people because having someone of her stature (which is huge in tweener world where the little gay kids still are feeling alone and unaccepted) would have made a huge difference to a lot of gay kids lives.

I think that the fact that she calls herself gay instead of queer/bi/unlabeled/blahblahblah means she's exactly that. Kids in her age group aren't calling themselves gay. The "fashion" is to be queer or some other made up bullshit like that.

JoJo came out as pansexual R173.

God, that was nauseating, R167. Especially after that stunt, I’m glad that she didn’t win.

R173, no I meant the opposite of that. As a gayling BOY who dealt with a raft of shit from both family and classmates who were completely freaked out by gay MEN, I don't think having some hot blonde 18 year old pansexual on a tv show would have done anything for me or my situation. That was what I was saying.

Jojo is about as unthreatening as you can get. And she was dancing with another hot chick. Wearing skimpy feminine outfits. Straight men love that shit, straight women are like awwwww, she's sooo pretty!! Good for her!!

Give me a flaming gay teen boy dancing with an older male partner and then let's talk.

I will continue to explore my orientation options as I continue to follow the money.

Is that so wrong?

by Anonymousreply 177November 23, 2021 7:56 PM

Well, then that's a failure of your imagination R176 because as a young gay girl I would have felt better watching that flaming gay teen guy dancing with another man and being cheered. Maybe that's a difference between gay men and lesbians. The ability to draw empathy beyond those just like us. Although Bruno was the one to first express is so I guess we're back to it being a failure of your imagination or empathy.

As far as whether she's gay or bi or pan or whatever, she is at the age when, previously, all the gay people were bi before fully coming out even to themselves. She always calls herself gay when she brings it up. She did last night. And, as a lesbian, there are certain things that scream gay about her. If you saw any of her videos from a couple years ago with her "boyfriend", you'd see every little lesbian who had no chemistry with their first "boyfriend". The way she carries herself and her physicality also scream gay to me. And, you can tell her family just always kind of knew. Being "pan" is not something a family just "knows" from a decade ago. She's been a baby dyke forever. The glitter and bows just threw everyone off.

yep R178 - that is the difference between gay men and lesbians indeed. and you claiming i lack "empathy and imagination" (MARY!!!!) because i am pointing out that seeing a hot blonde girl dancing with another hot girl would not have spared me the shit i dealt with as a closeted gay teenage boy in the south - shows that you are actually lacking the empathy here.

beautiful blonde girls who say they are lesbians (a common fantasy for straight men) are treated differently than effeminate gay teenage boys. which is why DWTS felt fine pairing Jojo off with Jenna (as their first same sex couple in 30 seasons) but paired Cody (an adult gay man) with a female partner.

by Anonymousreply 179November 23, 2021 8:16 PM

No one said it would have spared you all the shit, R179. They are saying it would make it a little better to see someone else who is gay cheered. Just because you don't see lesbians as equally a part of "gay" as gay men is just your own bigotry.

Tyra Banks has ruined this show for me. Didn't even bother watching this year.

The dance styles don't even resemble true ballroom dancing.

JoJo & Jenna look like the high priced entertainment at an exclusive after hours men's club where one might find Rachael Ray's husband lurking about.

by Anonymousreply 190November 24, 2021 7:24 AM

Did they always do these theme nights where they try to fit ballroom dance styles to Britney Spears music? I thought it was funny when one of the judges said one of the dances to Hit Me Baby One More Time was too staccato when the chorus is staccato. You can do a flow-y dance to that song.

If you don't see the difference in shilling, R 170, then you are truly the idiot that you have displayed in your post. It has nothing to do with her being a lesbian ( and a professional dancer) and everything to do with shameful self-promotion at a totally inappropriate time. If Billy Porter had done it, you would have probably labeled it as unacceptable; this is no different. Good thing she lost.
