DANCING WITH THE STARS

Ok...ya all knew this was coming (at least I didn't start a "Survivor" thread, not saying I won't)

Boys: Geesus could there be more HUGE men with size 25 feet? The Latin guy was hot enough, but he needs to back up his mouth with his dancing. Rest of the guys really creep me out. Ok and has Steve Guttenberg had more plastic surgery than Michael Jackson? Inquiring minds want to know. The Mario guy can dance, but he needs to SO get over himself.

Girls: Monica Seles, ok...bu bye. DISASTER. Toni award girl (Marissa Winokur), honestly makes me look like I'm comatose, way too nutzo.

WOW: Kristie Yamaguchi...but then again I kinda figured she's be great.

OMG: Marlee Matlin, love the whole dance without hearing the music.

BIGGEST SURPRISE: Priscilla Presley...who woulda thunk. At her age, I really thought she'd play it safe. KUDOS to her.

Me.

Ditto on Kristie, Marlee and Priscilla (who knew?) I'm still blown away at how Marlee can keep the rhythm without hearing the beat.

I hope Penn Gillette stays for awhile...he can be funny, but hope he doesn't try so hard for the jokes.

I want to see how Kristie handles Latin dance next week. I knew she'd be great on the slower fluid numbers.

I feel sorry for Monica, she looks so awkward. I don't know if she'll get any more comfortable with this whole thing.

You're right about the Broadway girl...her perkiness just about wore me out - whew! If she could do a jive every week, well...

Steve Guttenberg looks like he's excited just to get a front row seat.

BTW. I'm taking bets now on how many times the judges (particularly Carrie Ann) will use the phrase "in it to win it." I'm sayin' 10.

You both seem to enjoy the show as much as I do. Adam Corolla was so funny when he didn't great scores for his dance. He actually seemed insulted, it's anybody's guess who will go first but Monica Seles was pretty stiff for a world class athlete. I thought Jason Taylor was smooth and will learn as time goes on if he stays around.
Mario is cocky, I agree, but he sure can dance. I guess he's.....in it to win it!!! (sorry, it just fit)

You can talk about Steve Guttenberg's face and not mention Priscilla's?? The unfortunate woman has destroyed her face! She was quite beautiful once upon a time -- before the lip job and the Botox. She cannot make any facial expressions. Poor thing looks like a zombie. It just seems such a shame that some celebrities have to take the "procedures" to such an extreme. I would put poor Priscilla up there with Wayne Newton and Kenny Rogers for pure creepiness. [...Shiver....]

Priscilla could never make facial expressions.

Zee,
I came on here to post about Ms. Presley, but you said it for me. So, I'll just add my own "shiver". Creeeeepy.

Ok, my weekly update.

Only two boys have a snowball's chance in hell...Mario and Jason Taylor, YUM AND YUMMIER.

On the girls side...Pricilla (don't know how to operate my face) Presley was ok, Marlee (no, Diva, don't think she's named after Bob Marley) was inexplicably great.

Hands down Christy Yamaguchi...absolutely blew me away. Did ya all notice she was also the only one wearing "regular" heels, not the itty bitty ones. She gets 1000 bonus points for difficulty. She also has two kids, couldn't get my ass to move that quick unless the fat was moving in the other direction.

Never been a chick to win since season one...think I see it this year.

My two cents.

Me.

Ditto, I thought they might give Kristi a 10 since they said she was perfect. I'm grudgingly impressed with Priscilla Presley, but she creeps me out, doesn't look real. Does she know when she smiles? Marlee Matlin was amazing, she has great rhythm, her dance partner gets alot of credit.
On the men's side, Jason Taylor is easy on the eyes and can dance also, though not as well as Mario who is young and cute. Cristian may get better if he sticks around.
Penn Jillette or Adam Corolla should go and Monica Seles or Marissa Winokur, who seems to be trying too hard.
My 2 cents...fun show

If it's about the dancing, it should come down to Kristy and Jason. Kristy has a huge edge - she understands the importance if choreography, how to be coached, how to perform to music, how to be aware of her body and graceful down to her fingertips. How can she miss? Jason is just too gorgeous for words, he's with the strongest of the women pros, and did I mention he's gorgeous?

I keep waiting for Mario to break into a Chris Rock routine. Monica is a big disappointment. Maybe if they let her go ah-EEE! after every move she'll get into a groove. Priscilla CAN'T move her face. Poor dear. But she can move everything else! Go, Pris! Get some for the old girls!

Even after all the explanation and watching a video on "Good Morning America" about Marlee Matlin, I still don't know how she does it. I tried imagining blocking out all sound and then trying to dance in rhythm with a partner - don't think I could do it.

Kristi Y. already looks like the sixth week of competition. She's amazing. She makes it look so easy.

Mario and Jason are really good, and if Kristi weren't so much better, they would be the favorites. It'll be interesting to see if she's got enough fans to carry her. It is, as she said, a marathon, not a sprint.

The problem with coming on so strong at the beginning is that folks may start voting for one of the underdogs--or you get that voting block of young teen girls who will vote for cuteness over technique any day. They don't always vote off the worst dancer. Remember Sabrina Bryan (the "Cheetah Girl") from last year? Kristi should win, but might not.

For the first time, I actually took DWTS off my DVR (tivo). I just can't seem to care about any of these people this time. Bring back Apolo Ohno. Yeah, baby!
