Don't the judges have any say?
Carlito: Your point is a good one--the vast majority of the voting is "pro-", although I'm fairly certain there's always some "anti-" . . I wonder if some of Maria's supporters were so sure of her being safe that they didn't bother to vote.
ACW: The judges get their say on Monday and those three weeks where they decided which of the bottom two to save.
I started feeling the same way about the pro-Maria crowd starting to get lax in their voting thinking that she was a shoe in. Just another way to prove that every vote counts.
Len rips William's freestyle, then still gives him a 9? WTF! It did seem awfully mundane for a FS, no real daring, certainly beneath Cheryl's abilities . . but maybe not her partner's, huh? IMO, they definitely don't deserve to win based on tonight's performances.
Agree with the rest of you about Peta . . WOW!! She was first off in her rookie season last time . . but she has blown me away with this full season . . Cheryl will always be my #1, but Peta is now a solid #2.
I remain hopeful that Katherine wins (BTW, having her open her FS with her voice may have been the best move of the night) . . if not, then Donald is the more deserving of the other two . . sorry, Cheryl.
Just a bit of info I dug up I thought you might find interesting . .Donald is the tenth NFL player to be on DWTS . . Of the previous nine, two were winners (Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward), three were runners-up (Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor, Warren Sapp), and two others finished in the top five (Chad Ochocinco, Kurt Warner) . . pretty impressive.
