The potential pros are back! This week, they'll be dancing with one of the current pros, one ballroom and one Latin. Mayo is dancing with Kym, and they'll be doing the cha cha and the tango and Kym has some doubts about some of Mayo's choreography, but by the end of the week, she's on board. So they'll be doing their tango first. I still think Mayo looks two dimensional, like Flat Eddie or something. He has beautiful lines, but I just don't feel the passion or the almost threatening nature that I expect from the tango. Let's go to the judges. Len says that it exemplified what he loves about ballroom. Bruno liked the lines and thought Mayo used his partner well. Carrie Ann was impressed with the choreography, but she wants to see more personality from him.
Anne is dancing with Maks, who admits that he's very picky about choreography. Anna thinks that she can deal with Maks by being even tougher than him. Maks admits that she knows exactly what she's doing. So their first dance is the quickstep. I think Maks has put on some weight in his off weeks. His butt looks big. Ironic for the dude who made some (later rescinded) comments about Cheryl and Lacey's weight last season. Despite that, the quickstep is really lovely. It's actually quick! And there are a lot of steps! I love it. Bruno thought it was magnificent and lightning fast, and it combined both technique and performance. Carrie Ann thinks she almost outshined Maks. Len also thinks she brought the best out in Maks.
Tom announces that there have been only four times this season where the couple with the lowest judges' scores has gone home. So Samantha is backstage with Gilles, who had the highest scores from last night, and Ty, who had the lowest. Gilles says he's not totally confident they're staying. Ty repeats his normal statement that he's surprised to still be there, but he's willing to work hard if he gets to stay.
