DWTS: Chubby men, Chaz, Cher and the cha cha cha

I am thankful that Chaz Bono was voted off–not because he was transgender, not because he was an overweight man, but because he could not dance. His dances lacked content and he lacked stage presence.

Hope Solo, who is famous in her own right because of her athletic skills as a soccer player, is ungainly and needs to learn how to walk in heels (I’m afraid she only knows heel lead and her pivoting skills are closer to basketball than ballroom), but she has a mega-watt smile. If she were really angry, she’s be frightening as well.

Bono had been treated kindly by the judges and he’s been whiny–about how much physical discipline hurts at his age. Yet he’s not the oldest person on stage. Ricki Lake is about the same age and overweight, but she can perform.  And you’d think with a war vet in the cast, Bono would zip his lip about his suffering.

Now Chaz Bono’s mother has jumped into the fray. Bono forgets that Bruno Tonioli was a professional dancer and he’s still in pretty good shape. He recently posed nude for a charity. I’m not sure why Cher decided to lash out at Len Goodman.

I COULD TEACH HIS LITTLE ARM WAVING ASS SOME MANNERS ! Critique CHAZ’S DANCE STYLE, MOVEMENTS ETC,.BUT DON’T MAKE FUN OF MY CHILD ON NAT.TV

IS IT DWTS Or LOOKING PERFECT WTS? ITS EASY 4 HIM 2 TAKE CHEAP SHOTS AT CHAZ ! LET HIM COME 2 “MY” STAGE

Enough time wasted on Bully Judge! The nite I was there I had GREAT TIME!I Loved watching every1! I was So excited ! Laughing,talking FUN!

As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man !

Goodman and Tonioli have been kind, perhaps too kind to this Los Angeles-born kid who is acting spoiled. Tonioli didn’t call Bono a troll. He called him a penguin. A cute penguin. Men in tuxes have been called penguins before. Nothing new. Tonioli called someone else a penguin. You can see below.

Tonioli also called Bono an Ewok. That is the warmest and fuzziest creature in the Star Wars universe.

If this is seriously a question of talent, Cher should admit her son doesn’t have it. If not for his famous mother and father, he wouldn’t be there.

How did other chubby men get treated? Let’s look at a few of them.

Kyle Massey (b. 1991)

  • Season 11
  • Partner Lacey Schwimmer
  • Week 1: 23 (8,7,8) Cha cha cha
  • Week 2: 22 (8,7,7) Quickstep
  • Week 3: 23 (8,7,8) Waltz
  • Week 4:  18 (6,6,6) Rumba
  • Week 5: 20 (8,5,7) Foxtrot
  • Week 6: 23 (8,7,8) Tango
  • Week 7: 35 (10,9,8,8) Paso doble
  • Week 8: 27 (9,9,9) Viennese waltz
  • Week 8: 29 (10,9,10) Jive
  • Week 9: 29 (10,9,10) Samba
  • Week 9: 29 (10,9,10) Argentine tango
  • Week 10: 27 (9,9,9) Foxtrot
  • Week 10: 29 (10,9,10) Freestyle
Massey did well enough to make the finals and finished second. I don’t have time yet to check out Tonioli’s comments, but will try to post them later.

John Ratzenberger (b. 1947)

  • Season 4 (Spring 2007)
  • Partner Edyta Sliwinska
  • Sixth couple eliminated
  • Week 1: 17 (6,5,6) Cha cha cha
  • Week 2: 21 (7,7,7) Quickstep
  • Week 3: 20 (7,6,7) Tango
  • Week 4: 16 (6,5,5) Paso doble
  • Week 5: 18 (6,6,6) Samba
  • Week 6: 19 (7,6,6) Mambo
Ratzenberger had a week less time to prepare than his fellow competitors as a replacement. Carrie Ann Inaba called him “charismatic.” Tonioli and Goodman talked about heel lead, but thought he had content.
Ratzenberger was 60.  Tonioli said there was “plenty of life in the old wolf.” Inaba said he gave it pizzaz. Goodman was smiling, and said it was a great performance.
Goodman said Ratzenberger got into character well. Tonioli called it a mafioso tango.
Ratzenberger’s mother was sweet as apple pie.  Tonioli said he lacked Spanish lines and was a bit lost.  Goodman said he thought the dance didn’t suit him and the dance was “a bit of disaster.”
The samba wasn’t good either. Low on content. Tonioli said Ratzenberger “tapped into his inner child” and one of the “best worst” samba. Inaba stood and applauded him. Goodman thought he gave the character of the dance.
Inaba called him a “dancing teddy bear.” Goodman thought the actual routine was awful and that Ratzenberger waddled like a duck, but Goodman liked that he enjoyed himself. Tonioli compared the two to the owl and the pussycat.

Steve Wozniak (b. 1950)

  • Season 8 (Spring 2009)
  • Partner Karina Smirnoff
  • Fourth couple eliminated.
  • Week 1: 13 (5,4,4) cha cha cha
  • Week 2: 17 (6,5,6) Quickstep
  • Week 3: 10 (4,3,3) Samba
  • Week 4: 12 (4,4,4) Argentine tango
This dance was hard to watch. Goodman said he held his attention, but “overall it was a disaster.” Tonioli said it was “hilarious or delirious.” Inaba was encouraging. The Woz had fun.
The Woz had a fracture in his foot and wore a walking cast. Goodman thought he had the fun quality. Inaba enjoyed watching it. Tonioli compared him to WALL-E.
The Woz pulled a hamstring on Friday and still danced on Monday. Amazing. He did a knee walk and a worm. Inaba called him cute and adorable, but disliked the lack of content. Goodman thought the “dances are killing you” and the dance was terrible from start to finish. Tonioli called it the worst samba he had ever seen.
Inaba couldn’t find something positive to say. Goodman admired his spirit. Tonioli thought it “really stunk.”
WORST DANCERS
Master P (b. 1967)
  • Season 2 (Winter 2006)
  • Partner Ashly DelGrosso
  • Fourth couple eliminated
  • Winner: Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke
  • Week 1: 12 (4,4,4) Cha cha cha
  • Week 2: 16 (6,5,5) Quickstep
  • Week 3: 14 (6,4,4) Jive
  • Week 4: 8 (4, 2, 2) Paso doble
  • Winner: Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough
Master P only had one week to prepare.  Tonioli compared Master P to an Emperor penguin.  Goodman thought he had good posture, but needed to practice. Goodman wanted to see Master P in ballroom shoes.
Goodman told him to get real dance shoes. Inaba called him heavy-footed. Tonioli said the “dancer is starting to emerge.”
Inaba thought he gave effort but not enough content. Tonioli found it was the “ghost of rock n’ roll” and not up to the level they were looking for. Goodman called it “ponderous” and thought it was time that this show and Master P parted.
Tonioli called it a nightmare as if Master P was a lost child on the dance floor. Goodman thought it was cruel to the judges and everyone for his fans to bring Master P back.
Buzz Aldrin (b. 1930)
  • Season 10 (Spring 2010)
  • Week 1: 14 (5,4,5) Cha cha cha
  • Week 2: 12 (4,4,4) Foxtrot
  • Week 3: 13 (5,4,4) Waltz
  • Winner: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough
Goodman commended him for his bravery on the dance floor. Tonioli asked how could he criticize a hero, but commented it looked like Aldrin still had his moon boots on.
Inaba called it tender and charming. Goodman just said Aldrin inspired people. Tonioli thought Aldrin looked like he was avoiding moon craters on the dance floor.
Tonioli thought Aldrin was regal when he was standing still. Inaba thought the storytelling was touching. Goodman found it had an innocent charm but the technique was poor and the routine oversimplified.

Michael Bolton (b. 1953)

  • Season 11 (Fall 2010)
  • Partner Chelsea Hightower
  • Week 1: 16 (6,5,5) Viennese waltz
  • Week 2: 12 (4,5,3) Jive
  • Winner: Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
Inaba thought Bolton needed to smile and provide the frame. Goodman thought he had musicality and good posture. Tonioli told Bolton he needed to relax.
Goodman found the dance didn’t fit him. Tonioli said “it was a doggy mess of a jive” and this was the “worst jive in 11 seasons.”

DWTS 13 Week 4: Movie score week finds a leading lady

Tonight was movie score week on “Dancing with the Stars” and the night belonged to a certain leading lady: Ricki Lake and her partner Derek Hough were the first couple to receive a 10 this season.

Lake and Hough performed a tango to the theme of “Psycho” and only head judge Len Goodman thought they were less than perfect.

Vote online

Only one other team performed a tango tonight: Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani. They received a 21 for their performance to the theme from “Mission: Impossible.”  That was a hard tumble down from their 26 last week.

In second was J.R. Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff with a 26 for a foxtrot to the Theme from “The Pink Panther.” This is the same score the couple received last week.

Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy also received the same score they did last week (24) as did Rob Kardashian and his partner Cheryl Burke. Both teams performed a paso doble. Solo and Chmerkovskiy to “You’ve Got  a Friend” from “Toy Story” while Kardashian and Burke were dancing to the theme from “Superman.”

For a change, Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer weren’t at the bottom of the board. They were in a three-way tie for second to the bottom (with Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus and Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani). Bono and Schwimmer performed a paso doble to the theme from “Rocky.”

At the bottom was the master of camp, Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya for their Viennese waltz to “The Black Pearl” from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”

Will we be saying good-bye to Kressley and Trebunskaya? I hope not because they are the fun couple of the season.

During the live shows, the judges will give each couple a score based on several factors, including technical execution. But the judges’ scores alone do not decide a couple’s fate.

Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online voting will open at the top of each performance show so that viewers can vote for their favorites. Phone and text lines will stay open until 30 minutes after the end of the show in your local time zone. Online voting will remain open until 11AM (Eastern Time)/ 8AM (Pacific Time) the following day.

In the Dancing with the Stars Results Show, the couple with the lowest combined score from judges and viewer votes will be eliminated from the competition. The scoring is divided evenly between the judges and the viewers at home, ensuring unpredictable outcomes at the end of every show. When the final two couples remain, the ultimate dance-off will determine who wins the trophy.

Viewers can vote via phone and text message for their favorites ONLY on the night they perform; online voting ends at 11AM ET/8AM PT the day following the performances. The Dancing with the Stars Results Show will premiere the week of competition on Tuesday, September 20 at 8|7c.

To vote by text message, text the word “VOTE” to your favorite couple’s number below from your AT&T phone. Message and data rates may apply.


Lines open at the beginning of each show for viewers to phone and text vote for their favorite couples and will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show in each time zone. The whole country can vote.

One (or more) couple(s) will be knocked out of the competition each week there is a results show. The couple with the lowest overall score is knocked out of the competition.

The scoring and format of the show is unique to the series and is not based on a standard dance championship.

PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATING COUPLES:

Each week every couple receives points from the judges and votes from the public. For every couple we determine the share they received of the total points given by the judges on the night of the performances, and the share they received of the public’s votes and add these two shares together. The couple with the lowest combined total is eliminated from the show.

For example if couples A, B and C respectively receive 38, 26 and 14 points from the judges, we calculate what share these points represent of the total awarded by the judges on the night. In this example the judges gave 78 points in total, and each couples’ share of 78 points breaks down as follows: A: 38 points = 48.72% of 78; B: 26 points = 33.33% of 78; C: 14 points = 17.95% of 78. Let’s suppose that when the public votes are tallied, each couple has the following shares: A= 20%, B=40%, C=40%. To determine who’s eliminated, we combine these two shares for the total:

Couple A: 20+48.72%= 68.72%
Couple B: 40+33.33%= 73.33%
Couple C: 40+17.95%= 57.95%

In this example, the bottom two couples would be A and C, and C would be eliminated.

DWTS 13, Week 2 Results: First George Clooney…

Elisabetta Canalis is having a bad year. First she broke up with George Clooney this summer and now she’s the second celebrity to exit “Dancing with the Stars” with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

Canalis was stiff as a board last week for a score of 15 for the cha cha cha. She did better this week, performing the quickstep to “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and earning a score of 21.

Canalis without Clooney didn’t have the fan base. This team wasn’t the lowest scoring. They were in the middle of the pack, tied with Robert Kardashian and Cheryl Burke (jive), last week’s co-leader Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani (jive) and TV commentator Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus (quickstep).

Below this four-way tie were Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy with 19 for the jive, David Arquette and Kym Johnson (jive) who were tied with Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya (quickstep) at 18 points and at the very bottom was Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer (jive) with 17.

Bono should have gone–not just because of his low score, but also because his knees are already suffering.

At 42, Bono isn’t the oldest contestant. This week’s leader actress Ricki Lake is a year older at 43 and has lost 12 inches already. As boyish as he may look Arquette is 40. Kressley is a slender 41.  Political commentator Nancy Grace is the oldest celebrity this season at 51. Yet of these over 40 celebrities, Bono, who has better rhythm than Kressley, is the one who seems the most out of shape for this type of competition.  Knees are tricky and very important to dancing. His popularity might work against him and it would be unfortunate if Bono injured himself.

At war vet and a singer were tied for the top spot for their Viennese waltzes: singer Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani and war vet and actor J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff with 22. At the bottom was the man with the new name: Laker forward Metta World Peace with a mere 14, dancing with new pro Peta Murgatroyd. Ouch.

Activist Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer didn’t do so bad. They finished in the middle of the pack 17 and tied with fashion police and talk show host Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya.
