‘Dancing With The Stars’ — Candace Cameron Bure Deserved To Go Home Over James Maslow

How on earth did James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd get eliminated from the competition in favor of Candace and Mark?!

Don’t get me wrong — Candace and Mark are good people. Candace is a lovely person; a wife, a mother, a ’90s icon — but her dancing skills are simply not even close to those of James’!

Perception of their dancing skills aside, Candace and Mark’s scores are just consistently, quantitatively lower — or, at best, tied  with — James and Peta’s. For example, on their last night, Candace and Mark scored a cumulative 51 vs. James and Peta’s 58.

The previous week, Candace and Mark scored a 72 vs. James and Peta’s 76.

On the May 19 episode, Carrie Ann Inaba praised James for being the most versatile dancer of the season, where Candace received criticism for still being a bit stiff on the dance floor — despite her enthusiasm for dancing itself, which is very clear, and that’s awesome for her! But she still shouldn’t have made it to the finals over James.
