Last night I watched DWTS until I just couldn’t stand it any longer. Then I watched something else. Maksim Chmerkovskiy got into words with Len Goodman. Len, Carrie Ann and Bruno all need to take a reality check. Maks was right, he should have said what he said and the judges should just suck it up!
This season the judges have been rude, mean and above all else clueless. Season Eleven was shaping up to be the most promising season of all of them combine for me. This season the cast wasn’t laden with celebrities who have previous dance training. I remember in 2010 when Nicole Scherzinger won. I stopped watching after a little while because it was obvious who was going to win. For me that is in no way fun to watch. She wasn’t going to grow into it say…like…Kirsty Ally. No she was a dancer. Not formal ballroom but she has had choreography training for her videos and such.
This year the judges expectation of having the 3 people who just are perfect and fun and beautiful defied the reality of what we all were watching. They gave us a band of misfits who are entertaining to watch…hello Carson Kressly! You were a hoot!
Len was mean to Hope. She’s a girl who plays SOCCER…she is not a dancer. Her routines have been entertaining enough and she didn’t fall or make an ass of herself but while being judged Len with his snickered expression would dump on her. In essence saying WHAT ARE YOU STILL DOING HERE! He as much said that to Chaz Bono by saying there is only so far personality and public support will take you.
Bruno needs to sit his ass down and stop with the over the top inappropriate comments. To quote a friend of mine…he’s acting the fool! I guess the only judge I do not have a problem with is Carrie Ann.
Don’t get me wrong the judges do not need to have a lovefest with the dancers or the celebrities. Constructive critism is always a good thing. Instead Len is mean and sometimes surly because he’s been doing this for 50 years or some garbage.
Maks…you were correct last night. You said this is an entertainment show. When Len is being Len I’m not entertained. I’m annoyed. When I’m annoyed I won’t watch. Maks wants me to be entertained not annoyed. He wants to protect his celebrity partner from the harshness of Len and Bruno. That is his job and he’s good at it.
Maybe we need a week of guest judges. Just saying!
