Jane and Tony. Last week, the judges loved them, but they ended up in the bottom two. This week, they're doing the jive, so those who wanted to see Jane do a fast dance will get their wish this week. Man, the little storylines they come up with each week are always lame, but this one is the most tangentially related ever. Jane and Tony go to a naval base, because the jive was often danced by GIs in World War II. Jane has a super cute outfit on this week, but this is one slow jive. There's something weird about her legs too -- it's like they are too far apart or something. Her kicks are really ungraceful. Not their best.
Do the judges agree? Carrie Ann enjoyed the energy and vibrance, but thought it wasn't Jane's best. Len doesn't think the jive was suited for Jane, but he still thinks she's great. Bruno doesn't think Jane was "rough and ready" enough for this, and it lacked precision and sharpness. After the break, it's time for the scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, Bruno 7. The audience boos. Backstage, Jane says that she's having a great time, and she wants to stick around. Samantha talks a lot of nonsense as usual. Seriously, I have no idea what she was talking about.
Cameron and Edyta. As they rehearse their samba, Cameron is overwhelmed by how quick the samba is, and doesn't think he can move that quickly. Edyta wants to make sure they have fun with the routine, so she takes Cameron to a Brazilian restaurant, and he talks to some native Brazilians to get the feel for the culture. Edyta is wearing one of those Olivia Newton-John "Let's Get Physical" headbands, which has to be the most unflattering hairstyle for anyone. Their routine seems technically very good, and Cameron's hip action is pretty decent for someone who was so stiff in the beginning, but overall, it's kind of blah. Cameron kind of screws up the ending, too. Seriously, why is Bob the Bachelor in the audience every week? Does he have a real job? Oh, isn't his wife on Cameron's soap? Still.
