I think part of it was that there really were not any "relatable" stars. I like it when they have stars that I remember and was fond of. This year, other than Dorothy Hamill and Sean fresh off the Bachelor, there really is no one on there for me to cheer on.
I appreciate that I'm not going to know everybody--like most of the football and basketball players are nobodies to me, I'm not going to know reality stars, etc (unless they someday get someone off Project Runway or something), but they really seem to be scraping the barrel here. I get why they do a disproportionate number of contestants related to "The Bachelor", it's their show, but I really don't care. I've been pleasantly surprised before by people I've never/only barely heard of, and even this time I was surprised at how much I didn't hate Andy Dick, but it just all seemed very...meh.

I also enjoy getting to know new people and was pleased that Andy didn't come off like the usual jerk.

I was impressed by Kellie. The girl is flexible!

Wynnona did okay for a first time with a lady of her age and size, but unless her fan base really steps up, I don't think she's going to last a long time.

wife and i watch the bachelor and bachelorette for one reason only

mad awesome vacation spots!!!!!!!

but you would have to fly;)
I know... the places they go are amazing... no wonder they fall in love..... and no wonder they often break up upon returning to regular life. But I digress...., still liked this past bachelor Sean... seemed like a sincere and nice guy.

Crossing my fingers that tonight is better than last week. I'm anxious to see Zandaya (sp?, the Disney kid), Sean, Kelly, and Jacoby this week, for different reasons. Even though I know she is already a dancer, I was pretty impressed with the Disney kid's dance. And I must say it did feel kinda good to see the absolute ringer with someone other than Derek. Kelly isn't bad, but not as good as Zandaya. So if Derek can pull off a win this season, I'll respect it more.

Don't read the thread if you don't want to know.

If I were voting I'd vote for Disney ringer girl, and to get rid of "jazz" as a style if they're not going to give out consistent styles. (QB gets a peppy Broadway jazz, Andy Dick gets Poker Face and does quite well, I might add, and Kelly and Derek do...contemporary by any other name? All called "jazz"?)

Oy. I actually liked Derek's jazz thing. Wynona's Quickstep was ... Gawdawful. Sad actually. And I only recognize three of the "stars". Guess I wasted an evening.
