Isn't anyone watching this year?? lol

I don't normally watch it but I love Brian Mannix so I tune in when he is on. original.gif He improved heaps since last week. I follow him on twitter, he is hilarious.

Too many people on it this season, that I had never heard off. First year I haven't watched it.

I think most people are watching the Voice. I did flick over after the voice in time to see KAK's mishap..how embarrassing, I also had no idea who the bottom two were, so much for 'stars'

I recognised Erin McNaught but had no clue which of the other pair was the "star" lol

I am so happy Brian Mannix got through. He is not a star these days, he still does gigs and guest spots on TV shows but not a star by any stretch of the imagination. He only went on for a laugh, he has always said he can't dance. original.gif

Sharkies  the celebrity in the 2nd couple  up for  elimination is Vogue Williams she is a DJ originally from Ireland and engaged to Brian Mcfadden.
Erin Mcnaught is apparently on MTV.
I like the iron man but he needs not to be so serious.
Also hope Shannon does well but he certainly is no dancer either but will probably stay in because of his popularity.

What happened to KAK?

Right at the end of the routine she whipped her shoes off then went to jump on to her dance partners back/shoulders for the finale but something went wrong and they both ended up on the floor! Lol

I am sure it would be up on the channel 7 website. original.gif I saw it on that show that is on after Sunrise this morning so it is doing the rounds. original.gif

So Brian McFadden is engaged again already. He is an eager beaver to be married.

I thought the scoring was inconsistent this week, not sure why someone who falls on their bum at the end of their routine would get 9's.

#12 Chocolate Addict

Posted 24 April 2012 - 06:04 PM

No me either. Perhaps on a whole her routine was better regardless of the fall?? Was it actually part of the routine or them being silly? I have never in my life seen a ball room dancer rip off her shoes before jumping on to her partners shoulders.

They got 9s because the fall wasn't part of the dance, just part of the end 'theatre routine' as something of a laugh.  ie she is a tramp 'haha' and takes her shoes off and jumps on his back for a piggy back. It wasn't the main dance, in which they were nearly perfect.

Mel B is woeful, she can't ad lib, and did I say she was woeful. Bring back Sonia Kruger?! Blimey never thought I'd say that!

I think the Ironman and his partner are 'on'.

Chocolate Addict she said in the post-dance interview something like "See, I told you he couldn't lift me!" so I'm guessing it was supposed to be a funny modified lift with the shoes taken off but they weren't supposed to fall.  

The scoring is always inconsistent IMO, the judges know who they want to see progress so they give good marks to them and sometimes those "just happen" to be celebs signed to Channel 7.  They are usually pretty honest in scoring celebs they think can actually dance but they give unreasonably high marks to 7 celebs and those who make them laugh or show more personality in their dancing.  There is no way the powers that be would want KAK voted out before Masterchef starts and The Voice moves from Sunday so don't be surprised if she continues to score highly.
