Rick Fox: Dances

Rick Fox was doing well, consistently better than Bristol Palin, but dance fans, we were wrong and ABC executives were right. There’s a following out there for Bristol the Pistol. How else can one explain her continued presence on “Dancing with the Stars”? Fox and his partner Cheryl Burke were mismatched height-wise. I would have loved to have seen Fox dance with Edyta Sliwinska, who quit the show before the season (11) started.

Just for you to review Fox and Burke’s accomplishments, I’ve posted the videos below.

Fox and Burke at this time (3 November 2010) hold the best score for cha cha cha (27 along with Brandy and Kurt Warner), quickstep (27 along with Brandy), samba (along with Jennifer Grey and Brandy), rumba (24, along with Brandy who got two scores–technical and performance).  Fox and Burke do not have the low score for any dance.

Palin and Mark Ballas have the low score for the foxtrot with 19 and the rumba with her 14 performance score.

  1. I was hoping Bristol fans would be too occupied with the other elections. Oh well. Do you think she’ll make it to the finals on popularity alone? That makes me sad, because I want to see good ballroom dancing on TV, not adequate.

    I write recaps too, it’shere.

    • I’m hoping that Bristol won’t make the finals, but I was hoping she’d be sent home before Rick Fox and even Audrina Patridge.

    I have now realized that shows like DWTS are the ultimate example of what network executives will do for
    ratings. After all, does Rick Fox have a mother who might be a presidential candidate in 2012???
    No….. but he can dance better than Bristol Palin. Bristol is adorable, but she can’t dance- even when her mother makes an appearance . It can’t hurt either ABC or mom’s political ambitions, can it?
