They are doing the cha cha cha but you wouldn't know it from their routine. Maybe it should be called the cha. It starts with some business that Len will hate where Kyle is a nerd and Lacey is a hot teen (funny how she always puts herself in those roles) and she rebuffs his advances. He wins her over through the majesty of dance. His extension on his arms is great, and he definitely performs. People at home who don't care about ballroom will love this, because he's putting it all out there. But his posture is horrible, and his footwork is not great either, and there's entirely too much of him standing there thrusting his hips while Lacey dances around him for my liking. Len will hate it. Right, Len? The audience goes nuts for him. Let's go to the judges. Carrie Ann loved it and tells Kyle that she has a crush on him, and he set the place on fire. Len says that he liked it. WHAT? Len, you are letting me down. He didn't like the business at the beginning, but he did like the dance. Bruno calls him "an adorable nutty little package" and he put on "divine entertainment." I was not charmed, but I'm obviously the only one. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, and Bruno 8 for a total of 23.
Rick Fox is the next to take the dance floor. I know Rick as a ball player, but I mostly remember him from his role on Oz and from marrying Vanessa Williams and now dating Eliza Dushku. In their meeting (on a basketball court, because that's where Rick hangs out in his down time apparently), Cheryl realizes just how tall Rick is and how short she is. Cheryl has to get special shoes made to make her taller, and Cheryl has to remind him to hold his frame and let her dance up to him. This should be interesting.
They have the Viennese waltz. They don't look so mismatched on the dance floor. Rick has an athlete's grace, but he does have the pancake hands and he's kind of stiff. He also has to remember to stay on the balls of his feet; he kind of shuffles when doing quick footwork. But overall, he looks decent. Now he just has to get the performance aspect down. He doesn't have the connection with the audience that Kurt had. Len tells them that the height difference didn't get in the way; his posture was elegant and he was smooth. Bruno looks forward to Rick and Kurt duking it out. Carrie Ann thinks Rick is a fox, and he has great posture and elegant and graceful lines. Eliza looks really proud. [And a little like she wants to kill Carrie Ann for basically throwing herself at Rick -- Angel] I wish she would do the show. They should have an all-Buffy season. You know they could get Nick Brendon and Charisma Carpenter anyway. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, and Bruno 7 for a total of 22.
