Uncomfortable
Money, fox trot, lip synching

Needs to find sea legs

Lifts, careful execution
Totally not fair
Score: 27 (9-9-9)

This week’s twist: the contestants told the producers (allegedly) what dance they are looking forward to. Dreams come true next week — like it or not.

After a lengthy stint at TVLatest, Mike wanted to launch a site that brought in classic TV, diamonds in the rough, and the shows everybody watches. E-mail: mike@whatelseison.tv
