Mia needs to learn a word other than amazing. She's proud of Pasha for doing another style. Mary thought it was terrific. Oh, and you both are gorgeous, she says. Good work being gorgeous! Nigel tongue-bathes Jessi, because she's got this unquantifiable "quality" that she brings to every thing she does. When Jessi dances, I picture a thought balloon over Nigel's head in which he reminisces about her smearing oil all over herself and pays no attention to whatever she's currently doing.
Jaimie and Hok are going to be dancing a samba. Jaimie started dancing because her older sister did. Hok didn't start until he was 15 after being inspired by a Japanese dancer on television. When they pick "samba" they joke about having oodles of experience doing it, and then Hok wonders aloud if "Samba" wasn't the guy from The Lion King. Heh. Jean-Marc Genereux is choreographing them with his wife France. Jaimie praises how well Hok is doing, for not having the training for it. It's not surprising; Hok seems to have a kind of preternatural control over every movement his body makes; if it involves movement, I imagine he can do it. I'd like to watch him play basketball -- I think he'd make an amazing point guard. Oh, and in this routine? There will apparently include some spanking of Hok by Jaimie. I predict top marks from Nigel.
"Bang Bang To The Rock n Roll" by Gabin. Hok has a shirt open to his navel; Jaimie's in a sparkly, blue number. Are they good? I don't know. I can tell when a couple is really good, and when they really stink. Hok clearly has an abundance of natural talent (although, to be honest, it sort of seems like this dance doesn't make full use of it), and Jaimie seems pretty good to me too. Mia says it was amazing and wonders if she's been drinking "love juice" tonight. I hope I never have to hear her say "love juice" again. Mary says there were "good bits," but it doesn't "cut the mustard" in this competition. She picks a couple of technical nits. With some dancers she does that, others not. Nigel agrees, saying that he'd prefer to see little more traditional samba, like you'd see on Dancing With The Stars. He's slamming the choreographer here, and he admits that Jaimie and Hok's performance was good.
