DWTS -- The Finale
Another Mirror Ball Trophy Is Awarded
I think I was very apathetic who won the big trophy in the end. That winner take all Cha-Cha just left such a bad taste in my mouth. And as it turned out, the stunt was wasted, as the judges favorite didn't end up winning.
I have to admit, I really am not a fan of the free-style dance. I never really care for them all that much. I didn't find any of them all that great. And if I'm honest, I didn't care for any of the other dances, either, on the first night of competition, as I didn't think any of them were all that great, either. But the judges pulled their annual finale cop-out and scored the two dancing teams they want to be in the top two pretty close and let the viewers make the ultimate decision. Thought the repeat dances were better on the second night of competition. It was a shocker seeing how much weight Kirstie has lost. Of course, Mark redid one of his weird dances. The Harry Potter thing. I can't really recall what Hines danced.
Hines has had a weird reaction on me all season. It's like I watch him but I never remember anything he's done afterwards. He's like a painting hanging on the wall. You know it's there, but if someone asks you to describe it in detail, you can't. He's just there. He doesn't make any kind of impression on me one way or another.
Anyway, Chelsea came in third place. I'll say this loud and proud, she was the best dancer, but she was paired with the most obnoxious pro. People can say you're only voting the celeb, but you're also voting for the pro, and I think Mark Ballas was such a turn-off that a lot of people just couldn't vote for her because they'd also be voting for him. So she ended up being in last place.
Hines ended up winning. Kirstie didn't look like she took it too well. Her face looked like she was mad she didn't win. Once again, Maks is runner-up but just falls short of winning the title of best pro dancer of the season.
This was probably one of the best seasons of the show for a long time, and I think one of the reasons is because Derek Hough was absent. Both he and Mark Ballas have become overbearing. I suggest Mark also be left off the roster next season. Also, the show didn't pick a ringer that dominated the season. All the dancers were pretty evenly matched for the most part.
I still think they need to change the voting rules. The mass-voting allows people who don't mind spending the money voting by mobile phones to mass-vote, which means the results are never accurate. I also think all the dancers should have to dance the same dance, so you can more fairly judge who is the best on a particular week. I think all the theme weeks need to be drop-kicked. And I think they should never do winner-take-all Cha-Cha again.
One last suggestion: I think the person who wins the contest, should be Tom Bergeron's co-host on the show the next season and they should just drop-kick Brooke Burke. The winner couldn't be any worse than Brooke Burke. She's just atrocious in the job.
