Romeo and Chelsie got the first 10 of the season last week. They have the samba this week, and Shirley is there to help. And then Romeo is kind of sexing her up and you guys, she's Mark's MOM. That has to be kind of awkward. Especially because the next scene is of her shaking her boobs in Romeo's face. This explains a lot about how much Mark needs attention, doesn't it? Anyway, Romeo seems to get it, and plans to throw a samba party in his pants. I'm sure Shirely will be on the VIP list.
So, maybe I had high expectations for this routine, but I'm not buying it. Any time they are dancing together, I see no hip action from Romeo. He's just walking. And there's none of the samba bounce, either. When they break apart and he does a more modern move (did he do the Dougie at one point?), he looks good. But when they're in hold, it feels like a placeholder, like he was just waiting to get to the next part where he could bust a move on his own.
Bruno says that Romeo can definitely shake it, but he didn't get the samba bounce in there. Carrie Ann thinks Romeo has incredible potential, but he needs to work on his technique. Donny has seen Romeo grow throughout the season, but he needs to articulate his feet better. Len didn't like the dance much, because he didn't really do the samba. All of the judges mention that, at this point in the season, Romeo needs to up his game. Romeo looks a little stunned. I think he thought he did really well. Scores: Donnie 7, Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, and Bruno 8. That is bullshit. Way overscored. Donnie screwed up and put up the 8 paddle, but his official score was a 7.
Here is the leaderboard, with group scores (which were meaningless) first and individual scores second. Hmm. Who's going home? I think it could be Kendra. I think Romeo and Kirstie might have enough fans to keep them. Chelsie and Romeo look pissed in the closing remarks, though.
Ralph and Karina: 30 + 36 = 66
Hines and Kym: 30 + 36 = 66
Chelsea and Mark: 30 + 34 = 64
Kendra and Louis: 30 + 31 = 61
Kirstie and Maks: 30 + 30 = 60
Romeo and Chelsie: 30 + 30 = 60
