Which is exactly what Nicole had, only without the muscle-memory conflict in legs and body rotation (since I started reteaching myself figures and MITF I'm remembering how much you rotate your body and hip check in ways that just don't make sense unless you're traveling on an edge, but are just totally reasonable if you are.) Or lack of pretty feet-their poses in the pictures are kind of making me cringe! (That and someone please get Charlie pants that fit.) They're at no significant advantage over anyone else who's come in with dance training--Nicole, Kelly and her cheerleading, Jennifer Grey. Heck, math girl from Wonder Years has been taking actual ballroom lessons for months before she even got asked for DWTS-there's your actual ringer. The whole omg they're such ringers because they're ice *dancers* is just silly. And I think the reason some people get whiny, while the athletes (and the "out there" celebs with real jobs like Buzz Aldrin, Ty Murray and Bill Nye) take criticism and correction well is with actors, also "star" singers/entertainers and especially the reality-show non-actors who are on TV because..tv..., you're dealing with people who often do get showered with praise by the people around them and rewarded for relatively easy accomplishments (or with reality shows no real accomplishments at all), and especially if they're currently hot, they're not used to hearing "Not good enough, do it again" when they THINK they're trying. When most of your feedback in life is positive reinforcement and you keep hearing you're talented, running into someone who is just not impressed with you is probably a shock.
