It’s down to two couples: The older guy from Seinfield and some young chick from a soap opera. I really hope the old guy wins. He’s adorable. And he looks like he’s in pain about 95% of the time.
I’m not really sure why the chick from the soap opera is still on the show. I’m thinking it has quite a bit to do with her hotness – cause she can’t really dance. I think the home viewers are more interested in her body than if she can actually move it to any sort of beat. One week the strap on her shirt broke and she just about flashed the entire country. You could almost hear the collective gasp arise throughout the red states. It was at that point that she became a shoe-in for the finals. The blue states started voting for her like crazy in hopes that she would shimmy herself out of another shirt. Yes, Rachel Hunter could dance and was quite bendy, but her outfits always seemed to stay on. So she had to go.
And by the way, what are they competing for exactly? I know the announcer says, “They have everything to dance for.” But I’m wondering what “everything” is. I think they’re in a kind of catch-22. All of these “stars” are hard up enough for work that they actually subjected themselves to the cha cha for like two months. So they probably need to win some money. But they are on a show that is calling them “stars” and whenever you are considered a “star” on a reality show you have to donate all of your money to charity. I think that’s in the IRS rulebook somewhere.
So I’ll tune in to see if the young chick loses her clothes, if the old guy finally has a heart attack (as a result of dancing and/or the before mentioned loss of clothes) and what the hell they win. Oh! And I can’t wait to see who tries to do the lift (ala Johnny and Baby) for their big finale. That too could be followed by loss of clothes and a heart attack.
God, isn’t reality TV exciting?
