Thanks again to @Ericzku for updating us on what happened on DWTS last night. Please follow him on Twitter by clicking here. Four hours of recapping one show in two days is a bit much. Thankfully, next week I think we are back to one show a week. I love that he keeps us updated. One thing I read is that Bruno told Kim, ” We all like the new Kim, refitted and all ready to go. …It’s like when you reupholster a sofa,” regarding her moderate improvement this week.
Eric was not nearly as impressed. Read on for his comments on Kim and the elimination portion of the show.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Tony Dovolani
Tonight, we continue with the “Hometown Glory” theme, and we get to hear about the dance professional’s hometowns. Tony tells us that he was born in Kosovo and lived there until age 15. He says that dance was his escape while growing up in a war-torn country. Kim tells us that she is starting to feel more comfortable and she wants to do well “for Tony” because he’s such an incredible teacher.
Kim and Tony appear on stage in gray outfits. They’ve lit the atmosphere in intense red, producing a striking, visually pleasing red-and-gray tableau. All the better to distract us from the mediocrity of our featured “star”, I suppose.
Oh, Kim. Gray is NOT your color. They say the camera adds 10 pounds; this dress has added another 15. Kim and Tony begin their Foxtrot. Kim has lost a little of the clunkiness that she had before, but she remains stiff and a bit…hesitant…I guess is how I’d describe it. Like she’s not sure she really wants to do this. Once again, Tony does 90% of the work. Kim’s “dancing” looks more like: walking backward, then walking forward, then turning around in place. Period.
Two couples are in jeopardy: Gary and Anna, and Victor and Karina
First, though, I have to note Gary and Anna’s costumes. I think they were supposed to be a Russian Knight and Lady. It appears the Costume Department, though, found these on sale when the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Exit 12, New Jersey closed down.
Victor Espinosa and Karina Smirnoff are eliminated. I’m just a little surprised – they had scored a comparitively high 20 tonight. And Gary Busey stays to compete for another week.
