Oh, Ochocinco. Please do better this week. Cheryl tells Chad in rehearsals that their story is going to be him trying to seduce her and her refusing him. Chad jokes that it's art imitating life, but he has a lot of trouble with the steps. He knows that NFL players have always done well with the paso, so he needs a comeback. Well, he does a great job with the story and the passion of the dance, but his technique is still pretty terrible. He just sort of throws his arms up in the air instead of placing them, and his posture is not the way it needs to be in a paso.
Bruno starts out with the first "release the Kraken" joke, and says that he loved the attitude and it was much better, even if the lines were a bit off. Carrie Ann loves how he used his energy to focus on Cheryl and it was much better. Len agrees that it was better, but he needs to work on his posture. I really hope he gets to stick around and do another Latin dance because I think he could do better with that. Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 6, and Bruno 7. That's about right.
Pamela admits that she didn't put much effort into the voting last week, and she didn't even get her kids or her ex-husband to vote for her, and she's learned her lesson. I've read the stories about how Pamela refused to be interviewed unless they had certain lighting, and if you look at her interview segments, you can see that she has very different lighting than everyone else. Pamela is worried about doing the paso doble because she's really against bull fighting. So how do you solve that moral quandary? You invite Charo to your rehearsal! I mean, obviously. Duh. Anyway, their paso isn't as good as their routines last week. Pamela seems unfocused at times and she screws up the steps more than once. I also don't really get what the story is supposed to be other than the usual paso story. She looks pretty good, though.
