Melissa and Mark are the next couple to dance, and they have the samba this week. In rehearsals, Melissa has a hard time and Mark keeps pushing her and pushing her. She says that she wants to win, but only she can work on her technique. And she clearly worked really hard on her spray tan this week, because she is really, really dark. I also don't know what Mark is doing with his hair, but it's very poofy. When it comes to the actual dancing, it's very awkward. I think she's just not very graceful. She shakes her stuff all over the place but it looks weird. Maybe the judges can pinpoint it.
Len thought that Melissa really performed well, and had good foot and leg action, but she needs to feel the rhythm in her whole body. Bruno thought it was an improvement over last week, because she paid attention to her foot placement. Carrie Ann says that she can still see the fear in Melissa's performance, and she needs to let go of that. Tom makes a crack about how, when he sees Mark's hair, he wants to watch TJ Hooker. Yes! He's totally '80s Adrian Zmed. Good call, Tom. Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Len 6, and Bruno with a defiant 7.
Louie and Chelsie are up next, and Louie slicked his hair back this week, to try to get into the rumba mood. I think Louie has a little crush on her, and she might like him a little too. I don't know if their acting up for the cameras or what, but they do have a lot of chemistry. So how does that translate to the dance floor? Well, they definitely have chemistry. They're practically doing it on the floor. I tried to watch for any sign of hip action or footwork from Louie but I was so caught up in whether or not they were going to make out, I didn't see one way or the other. Wasn't I just criticizing Carrie Ann for that? Then again, judging is not my job. It's just my hobby.
