There next follows a montage of extremely flexible young ladies, and we learn that Robin Antin thinks that "I could mold you into a Pussycat Doll" is the highest praise imaginable.
Tadd Gadduang, 25, from West Valley City, Utah, at first reminds me of Dominic, but that's mostly because of his haircut. His dance is kind of an unconnected series of spots. He spends a lot of time on one hand, and then later he walks down the steps on his hands. I don't know. It's kind of fun, but he doesn't impress me as a dancer, you know? He does a couple of fairly interesting things, but it seemed disconnected from the music. Mary says he's an artist, and Robin agrees. Nigel says it was very entertaining, and I guess I don't disagree with that. But I do disagree with him going to Vegas, because I don't have any idea if he can dance.
There's now time for a short montage of people falling down. And some painful-looking foot injuries. Forget them, though! Samantha Hiller had mono, then she kept dancing, and ended up with actual amnesia. She has it right now! She knows her friends and family now, but she doesn't remember her childhood or a lot of things up to three weeks ago. She also doesn't remember the show at all. Nigel starts to ask her about how long she's been dancing, then realizes that she might not know. But apparently she's been briefed, so she knows it's eight years. Knowing all this about her makes her dance seem poignant, although it's actually just a perfectly pleasant number that she smiles all the way through. She seems nice! Robin thinks her lines can improve with more dance classes, and Mary loves her story. She describes the dance as "relatively, a very good job." She gets sent through to choreography.
Will and Katee are the choreographers again. Samantha doesn't get through, but she's told she has promise. Micah the Stepper gets turned down as well. Devon looked pretty good out there, and Nigel successfully swerves him into thinking he's not going to Vegas. But he is!
So that was Day One. So far, everyone's at least been a real auditioner, which is nice. Nigel starts the day by telling everyone that they'll be rejected a lot.
