Well, I was wrong – Margaret Cho, not The Situation, was eliminated on week three of Dancing with the Stars. I thought that with her vivacity, charm, humor, and workman-like dance skills, Margaret Cho would be safe on DWTS for at least another week (though I admitted she was in danger). Alas, it was not to be – Cho was eliminated on the DWTS week three results show.
To be fair, Margaret Cho did have an atrocious performance on DWTS this week, if we’re looking strictly at the dancing. I would say that her routine with pro partner Louis van Amstel borderd on unhinged – she was a little wild and a little out-of-control on the floor. But she had such a good time, and her attitude and message were so winning, that I thought Cho would survive week three. I was wrong.
And I couldn’t have been more wrong about The Situation’s fate on DWTS on week three. His foxtrot with Karina Smirnoff earned the judges’ encore for the night. With “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas as her music selection and the foxtrot as her dance, Smirnoff had to be incredibly inventive with her concept and choreography. She went with time machines and mad scientists, and it worked – in a very bizarre way.
What didn’t work was the execution, so I’m not sure why the DWTS judges felt the need to bring it back for an encore, despite the oddball concept. No disrespect to The Situation, but it’s tough to watch him. I know the guy takes the dancing seriously and works very hard, but The Situation just can’t dance.
Bristol Palin also narrowly escaped elimination on week three of DWTS and will be back next week. But Bristol is going to need to step it up (literally) in order to keep dancing in this competition. After a great week two performing the quickstep, Bristol had a tough week three with the waltz. Bristol can move, she just needs to maintain her self-confidence.
After the Dancing with the Stars week three results show, The Situation will return to fist-pump again in next week’s DWTS competition. Comedienne Margaret Cho, however, bids Dancing with the Stars goodbye as the third contestant to be eliminated this season.
