Dancing With The Stars

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough

Nicole Scherzinger has emerged the winner of the 10th season of Dancing With The Stars! This is the second win for Nicole’s dance partner, Derek Hough.

The two hour finale show aired last night and ESPN reporter Erin Andrews was announced the third runner up, leaving Evan Lysacek and Nicole to battle it out for the mirror ball trophy.

Nicole’s win isn’t much of a surprise as the Pussycat doll is a professional dancer who dances and sings for a living. Whether or not Nicole being in the amateur ballroom dance competition remains a debate, but when all it said and done, Nicole was consistently the best dancer this season. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba even declared her the best dancer ever in DWTS history.

“I’m going to give it to my mom because she’s the reason I really did this show,” the Pussycat Doll, 31, told UsWeekly after the show. “This is for her!”

Nicole, and the rest of the finalists flew to NYC this morning and appeared on Good Morning America. The finale show however wasn’t without controversy as Kate Gosselin returned to torture the viewers with a final dance performance. Unfortunately for Kate, taking time away from the show did not improve her dancing skills. She however seemed to have more fun this go around.

ABC also announced the 11th season of DWTS will premiere September 20th. It will be interesting to see how they attempt to top this pretty phenomenal 10th season.

My thoughts on Nicole winning – Not a big shocker, she did deserve to win because she was the best dancer after all. Do I think she had an unfair advantage? Of course she did, she dances for a living. Having Nicole in the competition would be similar to having a top College basketball player play in an amateur celebrity basketball tournament. Yes Nicole has no ballroom dance experience, but let’s be real, being a pro dancer helped her tremendously and she was earning 10s in early weeks for a reason. The fact is none of the other competitors really stood a chance. I’m conflicted on this because while it is fun to watch the Nicoles and Evans give amazing performances, the show should really be about the Ochocincos and Erins, and about their journeys in improving week to week. And yes Erin was on a dance team in college, but being on a cheerleading dance team over a decade ago while in college doesn’t really compare to being a Pussycat doll.

It put up or shut up time on Dancing With The Stars with the semifinals airing last night. And while all the dancing couples excelled, two dominated and tied for a score of 59.

Professional Celebrity dancers Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek are still the lead favorites after their flawless performances from last night. Nicole and partner Derek earned a 30 score for their “divine” Argentine tango, and a score of 29 for their cha-cha dance. “You’ve got to be there,” Len said, in reference to next week’s finale.

Evan and his partner Anna Trebunskaya also earned a 30 score for their paso doble and a 29 for their fox-trot. Len said he loved seeing Evan’s “happy-go-lucky, fun side.”

In third place was Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The still rumored to be dating couple scored a 27 for their fluent Viennese waltz dance, though Bruno mistakenly gave them a “premature paddle” score of 10 instead of the 9 he intended. A 29 score for their paso doble dance gave them a total of 56 points. In last place was NFL player Chad Ochocinco with a score of 52. Overall all the couples performed well.

The full scores for last night below:

Evan & Anna: 59
Nicole & Derek: 59
Erin & Maks: 56

Tying for second place are Olympic skater Evan Lysacek, and ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. Both stars received a total score of 53 for the night. While Nicole came in first place last night, stealing the show was Erin and her partner Maksim, for their very hot and aggressive Argentine tango, which included a flying leap by Erin off the stage and onto Maksim’s shoulders. “Hot!” declared Carrie Ann Inaba, and “Loved it!” added Len, who actually gave the duo a 10 score.

At the bottom of the pack this week are Niecy Nash and Chad Ochocinco. Niecy came in last place with a total score of 43, and not too far up is Chad with a total score of 45 for his two dances.

With or without Kate Gosselin, the show must go on and it did on the latest episode of Dancing With The Stars.

The stars danced on Monday night to either the Argentine tango or the samba, concluding the night with a first ever three minute swing marathon.  Coming in first place for the second week in a row was Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough. The duo received a score of 26 for their sizzling samba.  A score of 10 for their swing marathon put them at the top of the leaderboard with a total of 36.

Coming in second place for the first time ever was ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who thankfully ended up shirtless by the end of a hot and sexy samba dance. “You nailed it!” applauded judge Carrie Ann.  The dancing couple received their best score yet of the season, a 25. Coming in second place at the swing marathon contest gave them a total score of 34.

Surprisingly coming in 5th place this week was Evan Lysacek, who’s samba dance failed to impress the judges.  Evan, who has been in the top two the entire season, received a score of 21 for what the judges called his “worst dance” yet.  Coming in 5th place during the swing marathon put him at a total of 27.

In last place this week was the Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka, who received a score of 21 for his samba dance.  Jake, who was the first eliminated in the swing competition, ended the night with a total score of 25.  Another couple will be given the boot in the results show tonight.

Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel will reportedly be dancing the Jive to “La Bamba,” while rumored couple Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy will also dance the Jive to the “Pulp Fiction” movie.

The most interesting dance of the night will likely be The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka who will sporting his tighty whiteys to recreate Tom Cruise’s popular underwear scene from Risky Business, set to the tune of “Old Time Rock ‘n Roll.” Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough will be dancing the Tango to a scene from Pretty Woman. Another rumored couple Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke will perform a Quickstep to The Bare Necessities” from The Jungle Book.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF DWTS?

Another week, another negative story about Kate Gosselin in the press.

The latest is the cover of UsWeekly magazine which paints the Dancing With The Stars contestant as being a major diva. According to US, Kate is so standoffish on DWTS, that she now has show staffers contact her through her bodyguard, Steve Neild.

“When the show needs to contact Kate, they go through Steve,” says a production source who also reveals that having personal security is not the norm for any of the other star competitors. “She acts like a major celebrity. It’s a joke with the cast, like, ‘Oh, look out — the bodyguard is watching!’”

Professional dancer Derek Hough however comes to Kate’s defense saying, “If anyone is allowed to be stressed, it’s Kate.  She is so out of her element. She can act any way she wants, in my book.”

DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli also appeared on George Lopez’s talk show this week and pretty much slammed Kate’s dancing skills, calling it crap.  “Kate is pretty dreadful. She’s crap. But in a nice way.  She is entertaining,” said Bruno.

As for why viewers continue to vote for Kate, Bruno has his own theory:  “People like disaster movies. We’ve got our own disaster movie there everyday.  2012 is nothing compared to the catastrophe she produces. She is a tough cookie.  She gets it in the face, she comes back and she tries to get better. It doesn’t really work.” Ouch.
