Dance Fever

All who know me know I love my reality TV. I don't watch the real cheesy ones - my favs are Survivor, The Amazing Race, American Idol, and Dancing With the Stars. I never miss an episode! The challenges each of the competitions provide intrigue me, but not to the point of ever wanting to try it myself. I wouldn't last one day on Survivor, I'm too much of a chicken to do most of the stunts they have to do on The Amazing Race, and even tho I love singing into the hairbrush in the bathroom, I know I don't have a good singing voice. BUT, then there's Dancing With the Stars. When I watch that, I want to do it SO BADLY!! I have danced pretty much my whole life, but never ballroom dancing, and when I see them training and performing all the different dances, I yearn to get on the dance floor and try it myself! Perhaps one day I'll get up the gumption to take lessons - with or without Hubby, I really want to do it. The only thing that worries me is those high heels.....

This season of DWTS is off to a great start - the twelve couples all danced last week and this week, and their combined scores will be tallied for tonight's elimination. One man and one woman will be sent home. My prediction is that Monica Seles will be the woman leaving tonight - she is just....well....bad. My favorites of the women are Marlee Matlin (amazing!), Shannon Elizabeth, and Kristi Yamaguchi. They have all three impressed me so far! Priscilla Presley didn't do so bad, either (but man, she has messed up her face!), and Marissa Jaret Winokur is not very good, but has great enthusiasm! As for the men, I think either Penn Jillette will go home, or Adam Carolla - they are equally bad and obnoxious. My favs of the guys are Mario (never heard of him before, but he can dance!) and Jason Taylor, and I just think Steve Guttenberg is the cutest! The Cristian de la Fuente guy is not bad, but not great either, IMO. He's more of a goofball than a heartthrob to me.

I'll be tuning in tonight for the results show (right after I watch American Idol!) - we'll see if my predictions are right. And I'll live vicariously through all the dancers for another week....

ok, I love those same shows....I'm such a James fan on Survivor and I love to look at....er..Jason Taylor, I could totally eat him up.....and, not only that, I think Kristi Y is the best of the girls but it is obvious, she should be good, they talk about her precision, wellduh, she should have precision, shouldn't she?

I haven't watched any of the shows yet. I did FF to the end of DWTS to see who went home. No surprise at all. Yay!

I'm like you. I'd LOVE to be able to ballroom dance. For me, it's not the thought of the high heels. God did not grace me with a lick of rhythm so I'm afraid I'd be more like Monica than Kristi. In my mind tho, Hubby & I are Fred & Ginger!

I must admit that I have never watched Dancing with the Stars. However, I am a HUGE American Idol fan, and I can't get over the amazing talent this season!
