Favorite Couples: Loved Warren & Kym’s Paso and Toni & Alec’s Rumba!!!  I liked Lance & Lacey’s Paso even though it wasn’t quite true to form.  I liked—almost loved—Misty & Max’s Paso.  The choreography for Misty & Max’s Paso was amazing and Misty almost carried it off—but there were places in which she looked uncertain.  Surprisingly, I also liked Cody & Julianne’s Rumba.

Judges: The gloves are coming off—Len and Bruno sometimes react as if the contestants are deliberately assaulting the dance—I like them better when they acknowledge what the celebrities have done well and offer them constructive criticism.  No one’s going out there to dance badly on purpose—dancing just comes more naturally to some of the celebrities than others.  Be nice—tough love may work in private but blasting someone in front of an audience is unnecessarily harsh.  *Exception: Master P.  Since he was barely rehearsing, it was clear that he didn’t care about the dancing.  I was also really annoyed that better and more committed dancers were being voted off.

Who’s Going Home: I like Cloris—but she’s the weakest dancer.  If not her, then Kim.

Other Thoughts: The judges loved Brooke and Derek’s Paso but, although technically it was fine, something about it just didn’t work for me.
