Marie and Jonathan Take Two: The mambo. My grandma went to Puerto Rico when I was a kid and she bought me home a doll that looked exactly like Marie in this routine. It's kind of freaking me out. Marie's posture during the mambo is terrible. She's all over the place, and she's very flat-footed. This whole routine just feels like moving from one stunt to the next without a whole lot of actual dancing.
The judges: Bruno thinks it was "dizzily madcap," and frenetic. Carrie Ann loved it, but thought Marie missed a few steps. Len saw a lot of that hip action, and really enjoys Marie's energy. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 9. Marie's fake eyelashes are totally falling off. Their total score is 56 out of 60.
Mel and Maks Take Two: The paso doble. I never thought I would say this, but I think I'm rooting for these two to win. And this is coming from a lifelong Maks-hater. Mel's body looks amazing. There's a whole section with Mel using a whip. And I think Maks is taking over the "mostly naked" crown from Cameron. The dance is great, though not as good as their first one.
The judges: Carrie Ann thought it was powerful and fantastic. Len thought they might be wrong to redo a dance where they got a perfect score the first time. Then there's a whole moment where they make jokes about the whip before Len says it was fantastic. Bruno thinks it was satisfaction guaranteed, and enjoyed the precision of Mel's footwork. He tells Mel that she's a star. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, and Bruno 10. So they have a total of 60 out of 60. Mel can't stop laughing at Maks being goofy, which is why I enjoy these two, and I enjoy him with her.
