Default It's Dancing With the Stars Time Again!

The first installment of Season 6 was last night, featuring the men.

First one out should be Penn Jillette as he danced like an uncontrolled ox (just like me ) he should also be eliminated for the horrible name he gave his child: Moxie CrimeFighter (Magician Penn Jillette)

Mario seems to be the best male, however his cockiness may prove to be his undoing

I liked Jason Taylor, the Miami Dolphin, who seems to have the right stuff and he is with my favorite Edyta, who always seems to be losing her costume.

I agree with you Doug, Jason Taylor is such a nice guy also. I loved seeing him dancing with the bottle on his head to keep him aware of his posture. Tonight the ladies will show their stuff!

I have waited for this to come on, and missed the first show. Shame on me. I will be sure to watch tonight.

I saw an interview with P. Presley, and she said that she would not dance to any Elvis songs. I wonder if they had approached her about doing so.

I wouldn't wrorry about it if I were her, she won't be around all that long. She looked like a zombie last night (someone call Tom Cruise quickly!!! ). It could be excessive plastic surgery rather than a trance-like state.

I am quite interested in seeing Marilee Matlin, the deaf actress dance.

Other than Penn, the guys were all not that bad. Mario, and Jason Taylor were both pretty smooth. I have hope that all the other can improve with the exception of Penn, although I did like his attitude. Steve Gutenberg was so thrilled to be doing it, it made it fun to watch him.

Can't wait to see the women tonight.

I'm so glad this show is back on. My daughter and I went to see the tour when it came our way and because they hadn't sold as many tickets as they should have, they moved us and we got seats at the tables ringing the dance floor and we were maybe 10 feet from the front center of the dance floor. It was amazing! As fun as it is watching the show on tv, it can't compare with having Derek Hough dancing right in front of you, along with all the others.

I tape this show, so I can plow right through some of the stuff. I have to say, I give all these celebs so much credit for doing this, they are amazingly courageous!

The dancing redwooods, Steve, he gets points for smiling alot, Penn, this years Wayne Newton, and Adam, who looked like a 2nd grader, all dressed up & being made to dance.

Mario, aka Mr Swivel Hips, was amazing, first time out of the box. Jason, his extension amazed me, But this years hunka hunka for me was Cristiane...be still my heart.

This year I think it will be the mens years again, my gut feeling. Just from the previews, I think Kristy and Marlee will be the best dancers.
Honestly, I find it hard to look at Pricilla, with her over processed surgery.
And Monica, will be a quickie soon too I think.

I enjoyed the show very much. I like Mario and Jason best, and I think that Penn should be the first one to go. Some of the others have potential, though. It'll be fun to watch the ladies tonight.

My favorite show of all!!

I liked Mario, Jason and Christian not only were the dances good but wow what eye candy for the ladies!

Christian from Chile with that Cha Cha routine!
He looks like singer Ricky Martin.

Girls I think tonite it will be all Sharon E. and Martlee M. to steal the show.

We shall see!

The girls did well tonite!

I liked Kristi Y., Marlee M., and Pricilla P.

Marlee dancing and not being able to hear the music she did great.
Pricilla at 62 with no dance experience was great.
Kristi looked like a pro out there.

Also alot of butt grabbing tonite!
Both Marissa and Marlee grabbed their partners butts!

I agree that Priscilla certainly is looking very processed but she danced better than I thought she would. I was also impressed with Marlee.
I think Penn and the girl from Hairspray will be first out. I liked Penn's attitude though.....maybe Adam will go before Penn?
Doug, I have a friend who watches just to see what Edyta's wearing!

it takes tremendous courage to step outside your comfort zone like that on national tv....but speaking as a man...if I had a chance to have one of the female professional dance partners to teach me 8 hours a day I would find the courage 8) 8) 8)

CQ, I would probably be guilty of a butt-grab, too!

Venice, the problem is that once a week, you have to get before the cameras, in TV-land! Nope, that would be just way, waaaaay, beyond my comfort zone!

The women were great! I especially liked Christy, but I've always been her fan. Monica did not do well, and neither did Elizabeth. The others have penty of potential, though.

It will be interesting to see if Kristie, will be able to sustain her great dancing when the Latin numbers come up. The dance she danced last, night,was in tune with her skating training. Will that training translate, to sexy moves? Time will tell...

The Hairspray, lady, I forget her name....has got so much, [Richard Simmons] energy, I needed a tylenol;)

Game on people! We are off to a good start!

I'm thinking Kristi, Mario and Cristian in the finals!

With Mario blowing everyone way when it comes down to the freestyle round.

But you never know!

Boy, it's obvious so many of the dancers just don't have the rhythm, this year. I am glad to to have dvr'd it so I can fast forward through some painful segments. Have you notied how mouthy some of the contestents are this year...geesh!


Penn~ get outta there already
Monica~ Oy
My picks for the double whammy, Puleeeeze!

Kristy gets a gold medal, as does Marly who continues to amaze and inspire.

I thought all the females (stars and professionals) have beautiful costumes on!

My picks were..
Kristi Excellent
Mario Very good
Pricilla you go girl
Shannon love her quick step routine
Jason one hot latin routine

And I agree with Trip Penn and Monica gotta go. ALthough I was not crazy about Adam Carolla.

I saw on the news that Marissa (Hairspray girl) had cancer.
Uterine and Cervical she is only 35 years old.
God bless her! She also did alot better then last week. She is so bubbly and fun!

I agree with CQ and Trip about the first eliminations with Adam a strong favorite to go quickly.

Jason and Kristi are the teams to beat, Mario's cockiness is going to get him in the end. I am a little perturbed with Jason's partner Edyta, her costumes seem to be glued on better this season .

Doug, these women dancer have the most beautiful backs....Edyta especially.

A few posts back, I mentioned Pricilla's surgery. It was reported yesterday, that she was involved, along with many other celebs, with a Dr.who injected them with a very low grade botox, hence her appearance. The Dr. just got out of jail. One web site had, pictures of her from her Dallas days, what a natural beauty she was, and it's a shame, that this had to happen to her.

I must say, I don't think she will have longevity on the show, along with Adam, as Doug mentioned....

Edyta is a beautiful girl!

Although Kristi is very good I don't want to see her win just because she has an advantage over everyone else being she skates and somewhat dance during the skating routine.

Mario also has dance in his blood.

I like to see stars like Emmit Smith and Apollo win because they did not dance before the show!

I don't think Kristi has that much of an advantage because of ice skating. She never had to use her feet being on blades. She has the advantage of having good training habits. I think Apollo had that same advantage. I'm guessing Kristi spends more time training then any of the other stars. In Ice Skating they train like 6 hours a day. I remember the first night of dancing how the professional parnter was surprised at how hard she worked. I thought Shannon's quick step was very graceful and fun she will go far. I hope Penn goes tonight. I don't like it that he wouldn't let the judges talk. He should open his ears and shut his mouth. I like Jason he was as tall as Penn but he was smooth and graceful.

Apollo, Kristi, and Emmett, all have one advantage, serious training habits, Kat I agree with you. Sometimes it translates well, sometimes it doesn't, ie, Monica.

Down to 10 tonight.....

I agree that the work ethic is critical. What everyone else has said is right on the mark. I don't care for Marissa, tho'. She's always on overdrive, and it gets on my nerves.

Penn and Monica, you gave it a shot, but now you gotta go!
The rest have plenty of potential.

Last night was the first time I've watched the entire show (just can't get into it this season for some reason). I noticed the same thing Trip, no rhythm and mouthiness. Especially the guy, I don't even know his name, who had the nerve to do "thumbs down" to the judge's critique and that exaggerated shocked look with each comment. Geesh, must think he's right up there with the pro's already...

As much as I enjoy this show I refuse to devote time to the recap ad nauseum and will tape the results show and skip to the end.
I agree Monica will probably go and I'd like to see Adam go before Penn but neither one of them will be around very long.
I was glad to see Marissa have a better dance last night.

Angela, I have to agree. I didn't realize the first hour of this show was a recap,and promptly deleted it, and last night found myslef full speed ahead with the remote, for the 2nd hour. They eliminated the right ones too. Can I win a cruise for predicting these 2?:) Adam is gone next week, and Marissa, I think.. maybe...:)

For people with dvr's, what this show does, is so annoying, it goes over the hour by 2 minutes, which will not allow you to then tape, 2 shows at 10pm.

Well, they're gone. Penn and Monica, that is. Next week, I, too, think that Adam or Melissa will go. And yes, that endless recap . . . :evil:
