Bruno tells her that she's cute and charming, and had precision. He wants her to be "naughty and flirtatious," and Tom reminds her that Shawn is only seventeen. Len thought it was clean and precise, but he wants her to let it go a bit more. Carrie Ann loves her focus and her footwork. Whoo! Backstage, it becomes even more obvious that Shawn needs to lighten up on the spray tan. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8 and Bruno 8.
Woz and Karina are up next. It was hilarious in the forums watching everyone love Woz, and then he made some comments about how it made no sense that the judges loved him more than the other dancers but gave him lower scores and other sort of tin-eared statements and everyone TURNED on him. I gave my opinion that I think he's socially inept and just doesn't realize that it sounds arrogant. Not to mention that he's so rich and smart that it's probably been a long time since he's been given honest criticism. Anyway, I wasn't a huge Woz fan to start out with because he makes me uncomfortable, but I get why nerds dig him. So this week, Woz's computer brain analyzed his program and realized that he was injured. The doctor told him that he was essentially crushing his foot by dancing on it, but he decided to power through it, intending to stop if it gets too bad.
Their quickstep is clearly '50s based, since Woz is wearing a pompadour and horn-rimmed glasses, while Karina is all pink poodle skirts. Oh. Oh, dear. I have no idea what is happening on my screen right now. Woz is kind of running around, and there some spots where he's kind of dancing? But they are few and far between. Poor Karina. It's just not good. He belly flops on the floor at the end. Kathy Griffin is in the audience and she just laughs and claps because what can you do?
Len starts out by saying he loves Buddy Holly, and they danced to "Oh Boy." Len tries to find something nice to say and comes up with the fact that they are having fun. Carrie Ann says that she enjoys watching them, even if she's puzzled by what they're actually doing. Bruno thinks Woz is like WALL-E: rusty around the edges and in need of spare parts, but resilient. Woz just grins throughout. Backstage, Samantha refers to Steve-O's injury, which we haven't heard about yet, so good one. Woz nerds it up that he's only taken one aspirin, and he doesn't think that he ran out of steam in his dance like the judges said. Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Len 5 and Bruno 6. Wha? Really? The same score as some of the earlier dancers? That is horseshit.
