DWTS Week 2: Cuban

Injustice #1:

Helio had little to none hip action. The choreography covered that up really well so it didn’t show. He got 27 the highest of the night which was very undeserving in my opinion.

Injustice #2:

Mark Cuban was decent in his Mambo. I thought of the three men dancing Mambo his upper body action was at least the second best. And his footwork was pretty good too. They also said he put in more hours than anyone this week, and it showed. Yet he got the second worst score of the night. I’m not a fan of his but I just put in some votes for him, mostly because I don’t want to see him working so hard yet get boot on a pretty good performance. He has a problem with the fan base and on top of that, his constant singing while he was dancing did not help him look good. He did that probably because he was nervous while still trying to put on a performer’s face, but still.

Like last year’s Heather Mills, I think people who are neither athlete nor TV/music star are kind of in a disadvantageous position when it comes to fan voting. Other than having a smaller fan base, they don’t have the charisma of an actor/actress who’s comfortable with the camera, nor do they have the physical advantages of an athlete.

My predication is he won’t last long but he won’t go home tomorrow either because some sympathy votes (like mine) will likely go his way tonight.

Aside from those, I thought Sabrina really surprised me with her Quickstep, as in my previous post I didn’t think she would do as well in ballroom. Jennie did well too but the slip in the end kind of overshadowed the performance. When something like that happened you realize this was indeed live TV.

There were quite a few funny moments tonight and Drew Lachey did a good job again. But the one I remembered the most was the “I’m dancing Mambo!… I THINK” bit from Helio’s pre-dance clip. He’s a funny guy.

Also a very memorable line was from Edyta/Cameron’s clip where Edyta said to a frustrated Cameron, “I need you to believe whatever you’re doing and whatever you are is good enough… You are never going to be perfect“.

  3. wow that is indeed the US. a guy who performed on DWTS commented on your blog! how cool is that?? i would definitely be all happy and excited for the rest of the day if i were you! :P

  4. I enjoyed reading your blog! I too, am a huge fan of the show and have a blog on it as well!

    I enjoy Mark’s enthusiasm, however, I just don’t know if his performance is up to par with some of the other contestants. I think time will tell… whether he shows a marked improvement with each new episode. I didn’t feel he made much improvement this week…

    • For me this is a relatively easy quoseitn, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

  5. I agree, it’s the improvement that matters (eventually). But I think Mark did improve from the first week, although it’s hard to compare two different styles of dances really

    3cinr3b, that is the internet…

  6. Regarding Helio… I noticed plenty of hip action on Helio and I think the scores were based on his ability to lead, keep up with Julianne and flow through the performance. Great performance.

  7. you’re probably right on that, he performed very well, but i would still like to see some basic Mambo steps there
