Favorite Couples:  I missed the first 3 dances, but based on what I did see, I liked Chaz & Lacey, Chynna & Tony, J.R. & Karina and Ricki & Derek best.  Basic choreography or not, Chaz knows how to *sell* a performance.  I liked Ricki’s performance (and I loved the choreography) but I thought she was a little stilted.  I think Chynna and J.R. are the most natural dancers of the group and probably the ones to beat.

Who’s Going Home:  Okay, I’m late posting so we all know that Elisabetta went home which is fine by me.

Other Thoughts:  This season I’m simply recording, fast-forwarding and watching the dances.  That said, I did catch Carrie Ann asking Chynna if she was injured because she “expected more” and it reminded me *why* I’m recording, fast-forwarding and watching only the dances.  Chynna is a lovely dancer–if you want more, say you want more, but skip the snarkiness.
