Monday Night Enjoyment

There aren't too many regular TV programs that I like...but I am crazy about Monday nights when Dancing With the Stars is on! This season is an especially fun one to watch, and recently Diann and I were together watching and it was tons o' enjoyment! I have to say that, thus far, I am in total agreement with the judges and the public voters who have eliminated the contestants. The latest two - the Playboy Bunny and the Apple Whiz - are probably lovely people in real life, but were quite the "challenged" dancers. So, who am I rooting for this season? There are so many choices! First of all, my favorite professional male is Derek. He reminds me of my son John in that he has a twinkle in his eyes and a sense of humor...and he sure can twist and turn with the best of 'em. That guy has charisma! Paired with Lil' Kim is certainly interesting and she has really improved under his tutelage. There's a tie in my book with professional females: I like both Julianne and Cheryl. Different styles, but both are amazing dancers. Favorite celebrity male (by a landslide!) is Giles. He's on fire! But, Ty is gaining on him!! Favority celebrity female : Melissa.

Okay, now for my predictions (in order of when I think they should be eliminated):

9. Steve O./Lacey

8. Lawrence/Edyta

7. Kim/David

6. Julianne/Chuck

5. Chelsie/Ty

4. Mark/Shawn

3. Derek/Lil' Kim

2. Gilles/Cheryl

1. Tony/Melissa Winners!

Monday nights sure are enjoyable when you can live vicariously through these dancers giving it their all. Perhaps I like this show so much because I never took ballet as a kid, and my parents frowned upon school dances in Junior High and High School.

Do you watch this show... and, if so, what are your predictions?

You're so funny. I don't watch the show, but I was a big Melissa fan from the Bachelor (like every other sane woman in America), so I guess I hope she wins...or sweet little Shawn!

I watch the show sometimes... I don`t know who I would like to win, there are many very talented `celebrities` who proved themselves already. Maybe Giles..

I've never seen but I have been curious. Perhaps I'll have to plan to watch it one of these times it's on!
