I am sure Tonya is aware that people will never forget that whole episode.It must be so hard to live your worst moments in the public eye.

I think she is pretty brave to put herself out there to be sliced and diced by social media which is brutal.I don't imagine she will get many votes.

She may be able to tell her side of the story or at least talk a bit about it  .... I am sure TPTB will use it somehow because they just love 'drama"  .... Wink

Hi there!  Haven't been around for awhile--preimarily because I use my husband's computer and his system always runs into occasional virus problems when I go into different websites, which seems to include this one.  I'll see how it goes this time, fingers crossed!

Not sure how I feel about all athletes this time, but I'm willing to check it out.  Tbh my biggest mixed feelings will be with Tonya Harding.  After seeing the lovely season Nancy Kerrigan had on DWTS (despite her not making it to the end) and to then have Tonya on, it sounds bad but I kinda hope she doesn't succeed.  I wish DWTS didn't decide to have her on, but I'm not surprised.  Anything for the drama.

On a side note--happy to see James Hinchcliff doing some national Honda commercials here in the U.S.!

Looking forward to the all athletes season and discussion here. Not sure yet who I'll vote for. Leaning towards Adam Ripon but will wait to see them all dance.

I suspect it will be between Mirai and Adam. Skaters generally do very well and these two have just wound up their competitive season and are in great shape. Plus most, if not all figure skaters take dance training.

I am interested to see how they all do.Except for the skaters this is going to be really different from what they are used to.

In regular seasons, we tend to think athletes have an edge over other contestants. Be it stamina, flexibility, artistry, or strength. With all athletes, we might be able to figure out what matters most.

I do think that being a skater is an advantage since they all take dance training to some extent.

I don't know any of this cast because I am not a sports fan but I think as usual the "winner" will be fairly easy to pick once the show begins.TPTB do get a bit obvious with the "producing" and it will be ramped up because of the short season too.

Tonya is taking a trashing on social media. I suspect she and Sasha will be eliminated in short order. People simply will not forgive her for an act that admittedly was horrible but it happened over 22 years ago. And she paid for her sin. Man oh man, people can be mean and nasty.

I figured this is how it would go down.I think she probably knows this also.

At the very least I hope she has a great time and has a awesome dance to show off.

Anybody excited for tonight? Anybody???? I didn't think I would care much but dang it, I do! It's been so long and I'll take anything DWTS.


I think the skaters are the ones to beat; they'll be tough competitors. I am sort of leaning towards Mirai and Alan. Of course, that's sight unseen and someone else might steal my heart.

Since I don't really know anyone in the cast from sports I guess I will just enjoy the dancing,costumes,and pageantry.

I think I know who this season's darling will be and it will be interesting to see if I am correct again.

Enjoy the show everyone and lets hope we all have a great time  ... Smile

    p.s.  .... I am trying not to think about the Tonya issue even though I know there are people who will keep harping on it.

I'm not into sports and I don't give a hoot about Tonya's past and I have no idea if she is guilty because I don't follow it, though I felt bad for Nancy Kerrigan.

I agree, can't believe they're already going to eliminate 2.

Oh my, Kareem is not very good. He seems like a sweetie though. Scores were on the generous side.

Chris & Witney: Very daring lifts for first week.  A little shaky and messy and the annoying smoke machine obstructed the view of the footwork.  7s were a bit high, as a beginner salsa dancer myself I'd give a 6.  But since it's a condensed season, I guess we should expect slightly higher scores Confused


Kareem & Lindsay: On that last note, this dance would get straight 1s on Strictly Come Dancing.  Len was extremely generous.  Happy to see Morgan Larson from the tour dancing with the troupe, she replaced Witney at the last minute and has been very dedicated about continuing to train in Latin and Ballroom.
