Marko and Janette have Dmitry Chaplin in the Paso Doble. Marko will be playing a matador, because that's what the paso doble is all about. Janette will not be playing a bull; she'll be an animal activist. She points out that she has Hispanic roots, which should help. The dance looks pretty much like every other paso doble if you're an untutored American, which I am. Marko looks to me like he almost falls backwards at one point, but upon rewinding, I think it's part of the dance. Frankly, if she's supposed to be stopping him from doing something, she's failing to keep her mind on business.
Mary says that the paso doble is the most riveting of the ballroom dances, which isn't saying much in my opinion. She also says that Marko lost his footing a couple of times, but I suspect she means a technical thing other than "he almost fell down." She loved the part where Marko used Janette as the cape. Nigel got bored at the beginning and can't be bothered to even acknowledge the half-hearted booing. C does some interesting krump moves as he describes the parts where Marko established his dominance. I think it was unconscious, but I liked it a lot. Christina admits that she's out of her depth here, but she praises Marko's beauty before encouraging him to drop his crotch down a couple of inches.
Oh, there are video packages tonight? Fine. Ricky's mother seems fond of him. She is also proud. His solo is pleasant and entertaining. He's quite limber. It ends quite suddenly, because the crowd forgot to do that obnoxious countdown.
Tadd has Ellenore and Sonya. Yay! I promise to try to pay attention to Tadd. It's about two people who are from a time when they're not meant to touch. Then they become overwhelmed by lust and before you know it, Sonya is shouting at Tadd to kiss Ellenore's feet. The dance itself has a chair and a chandelier. And they actually swing from the chandelier! I thought it was just set dressing. It looks fun! The foot-kissing doesn't seem to be part of the dance, so I guess Sonya was just making Tadd and Ellenore perform for her amusement.
Cat comments that she really wants to go swing on the chandelier. But she's a professional, so she doesn't. I think she forgets to send Ellenore away, because she's still there as Nigel does his critique about how there wasn't really enough dancing for him. C gives Big Ups to Sonya, and she accepts them. Christina suggests that Tadd and Ellenore get a room and then tells Sonya that she loved it. She likes it dirty. Mary shares backstage gossip that "some" people wanted to cut Tadd, but that he's shown he's still growing. She also claims that he gave a whole new meaning to the phrase "swinging from the chandeliers," but really he gave the original meaning. She also thinks the chandelier was dangerous, which I like. It's nice to know that someone's worried about the dancers' safety.
