They're dancing a tango with Tony Meredith. Phillip says he's tried to get a lot of ballroom basics, but not tango. Tony does admit to being surprised at their lack of ballroom knowledge. And in the course of the lifts, Phillip and Jeanine almost inadvertently have sex with each other, as usual.
It's a very slow, careful at first. Leg kicks, and Phillip spinning Jeanine around. If I had to guess, the tango is one that doesn't place as much demand on them as a pair with more knowledge, so it looks like they've danced it about as well as they could, like when they move backwards doing the tango crossover step thing. Overall, though, it just didn't really catch fire for me. Mary gives them an "a-plus" for attitude, but in technique it was really more of a C-minus. Nobody even really boos her, because everyone knows she's right. She says Jeanine was better out there than Phillip.
Lil' C says he's a Phillip fan, but a lack of confidence is "the heaviest anchor you can put on your art." He needs to take the confidence he has doing hip-hop to the other genres that he's going to get. As far as technique goes, Lil' C criticizes Phillip's bent knees, and Mary steps in to say he needs to have bent knees for this kind of tango, so if Lil' C saw that, that was a good thing, and Cat throws it to Tony Meredith for a ruling, which is a thumbs-up for the bent knees. "I stand corrected," says Lil' C. Nigel straightaway tells Phillip, "I loved the ways your knee were bent through the whole thing," drawing some laughs, including from me. Also, he points out that there are some times when Phillip's expressive face is a drawback, like when he visibly grimaces during a lift (complete with funny slow-motion footage). "It wasn't good, technically. It was great entertainment." Nigel compares it to taking any guy off the street and expecting them to learn the tango (which is pretty much exactly what this show is); it's not going to happen overnight.
Ashley and Kupono! Kupono has a crazy OCD thing, Ashley tells us. He doesn't like having things on a diagonal, and his closet has to be just so. Uniform spaces between hangers, shoes arranged in particular ways. You know, just being anal about something isn't really the same thing as an actual disorder, you know. As for Ashley, she puked all over her classmates when she was in first grade, which made them afraid that she would puke on them again. Well, fair enough!
