Starting to lose faith

November 3, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
I understand that it is a television show and has little real effect on my life. However, when I see injustice two weeks in a row, I start getting more than just a little angry. Last week, I blogged about the terrible elimination of Audrina who has been close to the top or at the top of the judges’ leader board for the whole season. I was hoping after a shocking elimination like that, people would get a reality check and start voting for the good dancers and not just the underdogs. Boy was I wrong.

NBA great, Rick Fox was eliminated this week after his best night of competition that put him tied for first place with standouts, Brandy and Jennifer Grey. Despite great scores and comments from the judges, he was eliminated. WOW! How bogus is that?!?!?

The “star” who should have gone home is Bristol Palin. I admit, I am impressed by what she has done in the competition so far this year. She has exceeded any expectations I had for her coming into the competition, but it’s time to send her back to Alaska. She all but said in her after interview that she wanted to go home because she missed her son and was exhausted. I think her fans and the whole state of Alaska need to listen to her plea.

Otherwise, it starts make a joke out of the show. It makes me wonder if people are voting more for her partner, Mark Ballas than for Bristol herself, which isn’t the point of the show. Let’s start treating this like a dance competition and not a popularity contest. The good dancers need to stay to keep the integrity of the show intact. If the show is going to live up to its reputation, dancers like Bristol, or Kurt Warner for that matter, aren’t going to deliver.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe we can just keep anybody on the show cause we like them, even if their dancing is subpar. Silly me for thinking the good dancers should stay on the show.
