Does ABC have control over the judges? Why else would they score Candace and Mark so high, for a weak, sit-on-the couch for 1/3 of their low content, wobbly “dance.” Even guest judge Abby has nothing critical to say about her performance? Really? Then Candace given a contemporary dance in which she did nothing, Charlie did it all, and what she did do was a repeat from her first dance — really? Come on. Was it also a coincidence that her brother was advertising for a Christian college? What’s up, ABC? How can someone with lame abilities and lack of talent make it this far?

Don’t the judges have to give their scores right after the dance, even before they make their comments/critique. Therefore, Maks’ comment would have no influence on the scores since he made it after they handed them in. Also, did anybody else notice Derek clapping in the background after Maks said that. Even “sweet” Derek doesn’t like her. And then she goes on to tell Derek he is a “legend”. She was a bizarre guest judge. Hopefully they don’t ask her back!

The judging tonight confirmed my opinion that the DWTS judging panel votes on biases, not on real merit, as no couple was perfect and showed mistakes which did not get addressed by the judges and/or were addressed but disregarded in the high scoring. I like Amy and Derek, but a perfect 10 they were not; likewise, for Charlie and Sharna. The comments for Peta and James were spot on, but was given a “10″ from that guest “judge” because she personally thought he was “hot”!? Then her “8″ vote in juvenile reaction to Maks’ comment? (It looked like her student wanted to say something in that vein when she was interviewed by Tom but refrained herself, as she had better manners! Lol) I am steamed that Maks and Meryl were additionally downgraded just because they were ahead of the game and the “show” had to make it more interesting by deliberately giving them lower scores. Although I would have liked to have seen more rumba moves as well, they should have scored anywhere from a 38 to 39 for their performance based on all the “10s” that were thrown around so easily tonight. Talk about engaging the audience! As for Danica and Val, the scoring was somewhat within range, maybe a point higher. The only appropriate scoring, I felt, was given to Candace and Mark; well deserved “9s” across the board. Notwithstanding the dancers’ performances which I sincerely appreciate, tonight’s performances by the judges have really given me a distaste for the show.
