First and foremost: YES! Dance Center returns tonight. Now, on to today's Monday's show. Weird start. Thought I was watching the results show. Thought maybe I had selected the wrong episode on my DVR. (I was much more prepared -- and enjoyed it -- when the pro couples demonstrated the Latin dances.) All five couples came down the stairs. Good sign. Liked the variety of dances. I'll throw this out now: Is there any chance that Rodeo Dude won't be sent packing tonight? Share a scenario, if you can think of one. Until then, here's my review in order of the celeb's first performances. Olympic Gymnast - Cute routine with the quick step, very entertaining. Looked like they were having a blast. Would have been a perfect 30, but they broke the hold rule -- and it was good to see Mark man up and admit it. As good as that was, their paso doble might have been even better! Dramatic, yet somehow fun. Crisp moves. Nice solo at the start. See needed to big huge week, and she delivered with two great performances. Rodeo Dude - Great, great leg work on the Argentine tango. Passionate, intense. Agreed with Len: captured the flavor of the dance. BTW - what was up with that leopard print robe? As for his second dance, well, there was some hip action with the rumba. Nice ending with his wife. And LOL at him hoping that pays huge dividends when he gets home. Black Barbie - It wasn't a terrible waltz. Liked the Leo Sayer tune. Couldn't believe Bruno said that: "You tried to be a lady, but you're more comfortable being a tramp." Not sure anything was lost in translation. He meant what he said and he said what he meant. As for her salsa, as if it wouldn't be sexy. Loved the tricks. Wasn't as enthralled with the "booty that can do no wrong." BTW - my wife and I concluded, after yet another obscure food reference by Len, that they eat weird things over there. French Guy - Thought I saw Mayo during their field trip for the foxtrot. As for that dance, he played the character very well. It was sexy. But I sort of agreed with Len in that it wasn't 10 worthy. He won over Carrie Ann with the kiss and Bruno with the sex factor. Their rumba was romantic and somewhat sexy, but -- as Carrie Ann correctly noted -- the solo was odd. Melissa - Welcome back! Loved it when she asked Tony is looked like an angel and without hesitation he replied, "No." Her ballet background certainly helped during that waltz. And the crowd liked it, even if the judges' comments were fully supportive. Still scored 9s. DWTS saved the best for last with her samba. IMO - it was phenomenal. Worthy of encore honors tonight, and the three 10s it earned. LOL at the wardrobe malfunction and her "My boob came out!" comment before the judges' critique. * * * TONIGHT: I don't expect drama tonight, but the results show should be action-packed. Dance Center. The return of Jake Ryan, World's Fastest Man, and (suggest label name, please, for...) Lisa Rinna. BTW - Good call on her, Dancin' Queen. Glad creepy Genya is gone. Don't really like Mayo, either. Afton has the edge, IMO. * * * YOUR TAKE: What do you think about Monday's show? Is there anyway Ty won't go? Any opinion on the pro dance competition and returning celebs? Please share below.
