Dancing With the Stars – It’s Never Too Early to Panic

September 22, 2010

Well, week 1 of Dancing With The Stars is in the history books, and our darling Situation is safe.

He came, he sort of practiced, he awkwardly half fist-pumped — and he had pretty amazing lines when he actually hit the Cha-Cha steps with partner Karina Smirnoff.

While, Len Goodman said he “had the guns, but not the ammunition,” and Carrie Ann and Bruno both stated that it was impossible to hold Mike to the same level as the other contestants because he had only had 5 days to practice as opposed to everyone else’s 21.

Next week, however, all bets are off and he needs to step up his game if he wants to stick around the competition.

Based on week one, however, there are a few people Mike needs to watch out for. Jennifer Grey (of Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller fame) and Kyle Massey (from Disney’s That’s So Raven, and Corey in the House) are the obvious -and somewhat surprising – standouts.

That’s not to say the other’s won’t be difficult competition. Audrina from The Hills may take some of the MTV viewer vote away from the Sitch; Margaret Cho is already setting herself up as the dancer with the schtic, so the Sitch can’t fall back on GTL or any other mantras he might have had at the Shore; Rick Fox and Kurt Warner will have the stamina to withstand stressful situations week after week; and Brandy has some obvious dance experience, but her completely Botoxed face may scare some voters off. I swear her forehead NEVER MOVES!

And then there’s Florence Henderson, also known as Mrs. Carol Brady. Mike needs to especially watch out for her since she seems either intent on taking the nickname away from him with her OWN situation, or creepily making herself into a cougar as she requests to touch his situation.

Hope you’re all enjoying seeing Mike three times a week! We’ll be back next Tuesday with a wrap-up of Mike’s hopefully better rehearsed second dance – this time it’ll be ballroom instead of Latin.

DWTS Starts Tonight – With the Sitch!

September 20, 2010

We have yet to see our first glimpse of Mr. Sorrentino looking dapper and dandy on Dancing With the Stars. He was wrapping season 3 and doing promotions for Jersey Shore when his 11 competitors were shooting promos, doing interviews about their famous mothers and learning their first routines. In fact, the Situation had to truncate his rehearsal time due to all of his commitments (Word of the day – a la Snooki – Truncate), so he has only been practicing for two weeks as opposed to the other competitor’s four.

One question has already been answered: How long will it take for the Sitch to show off the Situation? The Answer: Not even the first episode, as his promo photos show him in an open suit vest with a Rosary around his neck.

However, tonight, all the rest of our questions will be answered and Mike takes the floor with Karina Smirnoff. We hope to have a wrap-up of his first episode up tomorrow!
