SERIOUS QUESTIONS?

I am new to watching the show know as Dancing with the Stars. I haven't just yet fathomed the concept. This has been an attempt at forcing a degree of culture on me by my SO. Oh yeah, my question. After two rounds I am wondering are these people the Stars? Do real Stars appear in later episodes? Or is it like Hollywood Squares? How does Steve-O get injured dancing, when he can slingshot himself clad in underwear off of a building (flambe)? The show is somewhat entertaining but is the hype it receives going to make me regret watching network TV again?

That's a serious question from you, FĂ©lix?

Uh, I don't think so!

This is the show that sprung from "Strictly Come Dancing" in the UK yes ? The head judge, Len Goodman, has a dance studio in my local town. My daughters went there for a while as kids, seems strange to see him so famous now. He still wanders through the town as ever though, he hasn't changed one iota.

Felix, does that I'm 4th after Koufax, Claus, and Annie's dog? I'm sure I must be before O'Conner.

Thanks for the link. However that brings up more questions. I had wrongly identified the male judges as former members of the band Butt Pirates. Do they ever dance on the show? If so who leads? Was that guy ever a stunt double for Arthur Treacher? What do the winners receive?

Forgot about Koufax. I guess your number five.

Well, Stars, maybe, not so much. People that have had their 15 minutes of fame, sure. That being said, Dancing with the stars aka DWTS, has done so well, here, because it is fun to watch. They work, HARD, and they show both the struggle and the hard work. I realize, its not everyone's cup of tea, but I know I watch and enjoy it. And I have never watched a minute of Survivor or other reality type TV except American Idol.

I think that the mix of Stars is the chemistry to the appeal on my part. I would have never believed that I would watch must less want to follow such a show. I'm pulling for Steve-O and the Cowboy.

Belinda Carlisle should not have been the first to go.

I think I would watch if they ever decided to blend in elements of World Extreme Cage Fighting, and had celebrities like Randy Coutoure paired with Angelina Jolie getting scored for style and performance as they competed against Britney Spears and Christian Bale in the Octogan....five rounds of open class martial arts dancing.

I adore Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell. Also Matt Hughes, Anderson Silva, and Forrest Griffin. I'm also starting to really dig Brock Lesnar.

I agree Lodi Forrest Griffin is awesome to watch. I bet you'd send his socks back to him.
