Tom Kozal dances some contemporary, featuring a cool reverse push up and a reverse somersault, plus he looks like Richie Cunningham. But looking like pre-perma-ball-cap Ron Howard isn't enough these days. But he's got a hobby, apparently. "I raise earless goats," says Tom. Of course he does. The judges send him home, and Cat makes a groaner of a "kid" joke.
Ashley Henry desperately wants a ride on the "hot tamale" train. Are you thinking, "Oh, everyone says that"? Because if you are, she's got news for you! She actually means it! But her routine is just a bunch of crazy hopping around. Tabitha praises her charisma, but says she needs dance lessons. Ashley asks "Miss Mary" to give her a chance. Nigel says she's not good enough to get sent straight through, but he's willing to send her to choreography, if only just for the experience. Mary reluctantly agrees, saying she must be crazy. "You're not crazy, you're just feeling the vibe!" yells Ashley. If the vive is "endearing for now, but potentially migraine-inducing before long," then sure.
Susie Garcia is a high-school teacher. "I know that's hard to believe," she says, because she thinks she looks sixteen years old. I'd like to tell her that singlehandedly depleting the world's supply of purple eyeshadow does not make one look like a teenager. And point out that people who actually look younger than they are don't need to inform people of it, because people can see it for themselves. Short skirt, pink bra, black knee-high Converse. Oh, it's Avril Lavigne! Well, certainly she's no older than sixteen -- Oh, my word! She's not a student at all! She dances some...I want to say salsa? Nigel says there were parts of her routine that reminded him of Shakira, but only parts (not the parts you might be thinking of, because Susie's aren't "small and humble"). Mary says it was sexy, but not that good. Napoleon and Tabitha agree, because these two always seem to agree with each other, but that's true of all the judges all the time anyway. Nigel comes off the fence because he wants to ogle her some more and so sends her to choreography. "It's cold enough out there for me to need something hot, and you're hot."
