"Aspiring geneticist" Colin Wheeler, 26, of Clinton, UT, says he studies blood, and spouts some nonsense about how he's unlocked the key to life and death. Also, Anna Nicole Smith came to his 25th birthday, and it was the "most happiest" time of his life and she gave him a hug. He pretends to get all broken up about her death, and claims she still talks to him. He's a big faker. During his routine, which is a whole lot of weavy nothing set to some kind of spacey techno, he almost shows us his big brown eye thanks to his low-riders. Wade thinks his dancing would be good for a rave in the early morning, and Mary blah-blahs about him being in his own world. Nigel says that form of dance is not right for this competition (or for anyone not on hallucinogens), but thanks him for bringing it to them. I think they're being nice because they're slightly afraid of this guy freaking out. Outside, he says he's going to take up ballroom dancing and come back next year: "I'll lift him up into the air and throw him around." Cat voice-overs, "Any volunteers? Ladies? …Ladies?" He clearly said "him," Cat, but nice save. God knows how anyone watching this show would react if any contestant appeared even slightly gay.
Olivia Usey, 18, from Santa Clarita, CA, gave up dancing because she got a skin condition and the medicine made her sick. But then her mom -- who we see in an interview, so we already know Olivia's making it through -- found a lump in her breast, and wants her daughter to dance again, so that's why Olivia's here. She pirouettes and slithers around the stage. Mary makes all kinds of contrived comments about how Olivia clearly wants this but seems to be struggling with something inside, clearly trying to make her blubber about her mother. Olivia mentions her skin condition, but not her mother, and I can't decide if it's because she's more upset about her skin condition that has apparently all cleared up than her mom's biopsy that day, or if just she's refusing to play her mom's biopsy for the sympathy vote (but not above using her dancing hiatus as an excuse for her shakiness).
Bryce Cleverly, 21, of L.A., wears a gold space mask, calls himself the Gold Inferno, and says he's the "American jumpstyle championship" champion, whatever that is. Well, he hops around a lot to some heavy techno. He doesn't even go the full minute. Wade asks for an explanation of the outfit and Nigel wants to know who created "jumpstyle." "It originated in Belgium," says Bryce, and explains how he used to suck at it, but now he's the champion, which makes all the judges laugh, and naturally we learn it's a "self-declared title." Nigel actually sends him through to choreography, because he says Bryce is "fantastic" and could possibly win the whole thing. He's basically forcing the other judges to call this bullshit for what it is, and neither of them do, and Bryce actually gets sent on to choreography. I doubt Bryce was prepared for this, and probably had plans for later that day after faking his way through this hopping routine, thereby blowing the minds of all the sheep auditioning for the dancing reality show. I suppose Nigel used up all his anger yelling at the fat flaming hairstylist who actually wanted to dance, who actually made an effort to dance, and who actually could dance.
