Jive–This was different! Most of the routine was in one place, and Derek is showing off at times (splits, anyone?) more than showcasing his partner. That’s usually Mark’s deal! Bruno liked the quirks, and thought the Fosse step footwork worked even though it shouldn’t. Carrie Ann says she’s a winner tonight. Len liked the rhythm of it, even though it wasn’t a traditional jive. Maria gives Derek all the credit for her success. (29)
Who is going home tomorrow is really anyone’s guess. None of these couples have really ever been close to the bottom before, despite a few producer attempts to make it seem that way. Will Katherine have to bow out because a last-second injury or will people suddenly sympathetic to her plight knock someone else out? Either way, it will be dramatic and EJ will be here tomorrow to break the news!
