Priscilla notes that her scores went down in the second week, so she needs to step it up. As they rehearse the tango, Louis explains that the tango embodies a love/hate relationship. Priscilla hopes that her perfectionism will lead to a great routine, and hopes to call upon her experience acting. Priscilla's dress is beautiful, but her turns seem a little too hoppy and not quite smooth enough. And I'm not trying to be mean, but Priscilla's facial expression doesn't change for the whole routine. Maybe it can't? Her footwork is great, though, as is her posture.
But who cares what I think? Bruno thinks it was well-executed and beautifully acted. Len loved the "passion, drama, fire and ice." Carrie Ann says that she was mesmerized and cautions her to watch her neckline. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 9, and Bruno 9 for a total of 26. Wow! Maybe the drama came across better in the ballroom than in my living room. Priscilla doesn't think her confidence is growing, but she hopes it does soon.
Jason Taylor is the final man to dance, and his light gray shirt was a poor choice because he's already pitted out. Adam mentioned on his radio show that the room where they wait to hear scores is like a thousand degrees, plus you're nervous, which leads to sweaty pits. Jason gets frustrated with the jive, and thinks he's going to look like a "fat, uncoordinated slob." He hopes that his hard training will lead to success. Edyta helps the cause by wearing hardly any clothes as usual. And hey, I'd do the same if I had her body. They dance to Ray Charles and...he's really good! I mean, his footwork is good, his posture is good, his facial expressions are good. They do some "wow" moves involving him sliding Edyta between his legs. You can really tell the difference between this dance, where Jason is actually dancing, and some of the other men (Adam and Steve, for example), where the woman is doing all of the dancing and the men are just kind of standing there. I'm really impressed, as is the audience.
Carrie Ann is amazed that Jason moves as well as he does for a big guy. Bruno thought it was restrained and powerful, and he's amazed by some of Jason's lines and grace. Len agrees that the lines and tricks were good, but he thought it didn't have enough jive in it. I thought it had a ton of jive content - lots of kicks and fast footwork. Eh, what do I know? Backstage, Edyta is also amazed by her partner. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, and Bruno 8 for a total of 23. I thought it was better than that, but I bet the lower scores will get them some audience votes. Hey, it was Jeff Probst! In the bumper, Tom pretends to have a frog in his throat and Probst comes over and reads the prompter for him.
