Call it a case of age before beauty, but this is getting POSITIVELY NUTS!
Cloris Leachman survived another elimination round tonight on "Dancing with the Stars," sending the buxom Kim Kardashian packing.
It's beginning to look like the senior gimmick is paying off big time in the ratings; people are tuning in just to get p-o'd about the voting system utilized by the hit show. Not that Kardashian was much better than Leachman. In fact, they should both be gone by now.
The coolest part about the elimination round is that it came down to Corky Ballas and his son Mark on the pro side of things. Naturally the show "planned it" that way for high drama. That's the rub with the voting on the show. Way back in season one, we were told where everyone stood as they were eliminated, until it came down to the "bottom two." Now the caveat, "Not necessarily in the bottom two" always precedes the elimination. (Of course, tonight, it obviously was the worst two dancers who were left standing).
On much higher notes, it was cool to see Warren Sapp's encore of the paso doble from Monday night. It was a blast. And who knew that judges Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman traversed the continents every week as they are pulling double duty --- judging both the U.S. show and the original in London. I'd love to snag their frequent flyer miles.
Guest artist Jessica Simpson looked stiff as a board as she warbled her latest hits. And if she hugged the mic any closer to her pouty lips you'd swear she was trying to cover up lip synching. Hmmm. Not that she was.....?
