So the first dancing rounds have happened. I don't know if I can take three nights a week for a few weeks.
I'm rooting for Jennie Garth, too. I think in a few weeks she'll loosen up and start wowing people. Jane Alexander is so elegant that I think she'll be good to watch. Were Scary Spice's boobs always that huge?
I predict the Sports Illustrated girl with no rhythm goes first of the women, followed by Marie Osmond, who is an excellent sport. The Cheetah Girl is going to rock the Latin, but I think she's have problems with the Ballroom and the long lines and elegance needed for those dances.
Am I the only one who have never ever heard of Cameron Mathison, Helio Castroneves, Albert Reed, and Mark Cuban (in all fairness, one of my co-workers said, "You know, the billionaire who always argues with the refs?" and then I knew him)? The only men I knew were Floyd Mayweather (who I didn't think was anywhere near as bad as the judges did--I really enjoyed watching his dance, and it's obvious that he can move, so I think they were just spanking him for not being more precise, but if he gets voted out this round I'll be pissed) and Wayne Newton (see also: Good Sport).
I love that there's a hunky-but-goofy soap star who also just happens to have a health condition that required a torturous childhood and now inhibits his movement. It's like the Heather Mills thing, only with someone people actually like. (It helps if you haven't broken the heart of an international sweetheart.)
And I think Albert Reed has a little more personality than one would have thought. (His redhead partner scares me, though.) Doing the Ann-Margret/Elvis thing was smart for this first round to get attention.
How cute is Julianne Hough's brother, who looks like a combo of Ken (from Barbie and Ken) and Zack from "Saved By The Bell."
Elimination prediction: The Sports Illustrated girl.
Also, I cannot wait to see Dolly Parton tonight! I don't even care if she sings. I just want to see her.
