Bruno was impressed with Ty's strength, but he's a bit rough around the edges. Carrie Ann thinks Ty is a DANCER and can't believe the improvement. Len says that Ty has gone far beyond his expectations, and has come so far since Len gave him a four in the first week. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, and Bruno 8. Ty promises that others might outdance him but they won't outwork him, and he feels like he's getting the hang of it.
Last week, Woz got horrible judge scores and still stayed out of the bottom two. I don't get it. Look, I understand a little bit the whole Vote for the Worst mentality, just to eff with the show. But Woz has positioned this as a "Let's stick it to the pretty people" thing for his nerd followers. Have they seen his partner? I think she qualifies as one of the pretty people. And Gilles, for example, may be "one of the pretty people," but both on the show and in interviews, he comes off as one of the nicest, most sincere people they've ever had. So it makes sense to boost Woz over him? Ty is the same way, and he's not nearly as pretty as Gilles. And I don't kid myself that this is a dancing competition; it's a popularity contest. But I watch the show to see people in silly costumes do dance routines, not to see chubby guys with an inflated sense of self-importance wiggle around like my drunkle at a wedding. I admire Woz's accomplishments, but I don't get why he needs to add, "Used my nerd army to upset the natural order of a ridiculous dancing reality show" to the list. That's all. So this week, they are doing the Argentine tango. Karina tries to get Woz to affect an angry face, and works on some difficult steps with him. Woz claims that the judges hate him and the fans love him. The judges don't hate you, dude. They are judging your dancing, which is horrific. That's their job. Don't make it personal. Then there's a stupid segment involving his Segway and I'm just so over this. Blech.
So how's their actual dance, as if it matters towards his ability to stay for another week? God bless Karina, as she's practically naked to try to draw attention away from Woz's horrible posture and lack of footwork. They do some fairly complicated tricks and lifts, so I'll begrudgingly give them points for that part. But the whole routine sucks. Again, not that it matters.
Carrie Ann knows that Woz is "the ultimate underdog," but there wasn't much going on in their routine and there was no passion. Len is pleased that they tried a proper tango, and he admires his spirit and improvement over last week. Bruno thought it really stunk and then Woz totally rips on Bruno for his role in Elton John's "I'm Still Standing" video. I don't know if anyone will pick up on that other than big fans -- I bet they'll think Woz was just showing pluck. But it was actually a rip. Woz claims that he nailed his angry face. I don't know if he understands what passion is. Do you think he has sex? I don't think he has sex. He might be asexual. I find that comforting. Scores: Carrie Ann 4, Len 4, and Bruno 4. Well, it's higher than last week.
