Athletes Kurt and Rick were in their usual middle positions, scoring 34 and 39. Why did it seem this week that several of the stars weren’t holding up their end of the deal, just standing there like poles for the pros to dance around? We already know the pros can dance. That’s why they’re there. I think Kurt and Rick have lost interest, and as a consequence we’re losing interest in them. No interest = no votes. That’s not the case with Florence though. She may have only gotten a 35, but when you’re 76 and people describe you as “dirty and raunchy,” you know she’s leaving it all on the dance floor. Doesn’t mean she can dance, of course, but she wasn’t so bad she’ll be gone this week. Kyle wasn’t bad. This may be damning him with faint praise, but he was the best male celebrity dancing last night. He’s 19, enjoys a great cheeseburger more than a great rumba, but at least he looks as if he’s having fun and trying.
Florence and Kyle, Kurt and Rick may be especially lucky that this is the season of The Situation and Bristol. I will be amazed if those two aren’t out this week and next. I keep waiting for them to surprise us and finally grasp the whole concept. Hasn’t happened though. They just seem to have hit a plateau of bad dancing that isn’t going to change.
*Okay, maybe for money.
