I’m not only watching it, I’m taping it, although I missed part of last night’s episode. It’s funny. A few weeks ago, I started taking ballroom dancing, specifically cha-cha-cha and waltz, and last week’s moves looked almost nothing like what I was learning! Maybe that’s for the advanced classes?
I was watching it with a couple of friends yesterday, and I said the place I’d be worried about was next-to-last place, on the theory that last place will get enough sympathy votes from the audience to be saved. Since I liked Evander Holyfield, I was happy to see him survive the first round, although I suspect there’s no way he’ll win. Still, he looks like he’s enjoying himself. Working with him in a boxing ring looked like a great idea!
I loved the preening most of the professional dancers did in the first episode. To paraphrase, “I am the greatest/sexiest/most fantastic dancer in the world and I can make anyone look good!” I’m sure some of it’s justified, but after a while it seemed a bit over the top.
Is it just me, or did all three women seem a bit whiny?
