So You Think You Can Dance
June 14, 2006

The Top 20 danced their asses off last night. Tonight the bottom three couples will dance for their lives. There's a lot of really serious and high press jigs being had on this show. First ya dance your ass off then you dance for your life. Very dramatic over there at Fox.

My Favorite Couples:

First up was Swing Dancer/Jim Carrey Face Benji and his new partner
Donyelle. I think there are two couples to beat in this competition and Benji/Donyelle represent the first half of this unstoppable 4some. Donyelle is just fierce, she attacks a dance she doesn't dance it. There's so much frantic energy and attitude in her moves that its unbelievable to watch. Benji is the most confused contestant on reality television. He just got back from a mission with his "church" after his girlfriend dumped him.
Um, Benji she dumped you because you're a flaming homo and you probably weren't at Bible camp or whatever, you were at True Directions to brainwash the male thoughts out of your head. And it sounds like the robots did a pretty good job, last night you even threw out a "virgin til marriage" comment. Please, who are you foolin'? That mouth opens really really like rubbery wide and that's not from smiling that's from a little something else my friend. All I'm sayin'...

My ultimate favorites though in this competition are the unfortunate in hairstyle Travis Wall and his lanky hot bod partner Martha Nichols! Their Broadway routine was hands down amazing to watch! Travis is a little jackrabbit that you just want to put in your pocket to let him bounce around in there and see what pops up. She's a skinny beli
nkydink with Amazon height and surprisingly good moves. She just doesn't look like a dancer in her "day" clothes, but slap her in a bra and some suspenders and she's the new lead in RAGTIME!

Travis is my reality television crush of the moment. He's incredibly talented, incredibly cute, and not too cocky but honey, that hair? It's like Corky from Life Goes On took garden sheers and a paintbrush to just one side of his head while Wendy the Retard from Howard Stern electrocuted him. Seriously, his hair person needs to be fired, but only after being caned in the town square. If you don't have to look at his left side, he's a little cherub. Travis Wall is the contestant to beat... once he drops Amazon Woman From The Moon Martha!

Individual Stand Outs:

Stanislav Savich, he might be a beet farmer by day but by night he's owning the ballroom floor. Can I just take a second to say thank gods they didn't let that fat faced girlfriend of his through. She was just too much with her Vegas breakdown and leather fringe top. Over her. BUT, Stanislav could star in Strictly Ballroom 2 should Baz make it. Too bad he was partnered with The Girl With The Red Eyes and Red Lipstick On Her Tooth. Did you see her eyes, seriously the pupils were red, not the rest of her eye, just the center... red. She's related to Sweet from Buffy's "Once More With Feeling"... don't quote me on that though.

Natalie Fotopoulos may not be the best dancer, but hot damn if she doesn't have attitude and personality that outshines any other girl in this competition. Sure, Musa wasn't great at their dance, but she went with it and moved around that stage like buttah! She's got spunk, and it might be a little funky if I'm not mistaken. She's great fun and can you imagine a Natalie/Benji face off? It'd be insane. She cracks me up and right now, that's something. She stuck out.

Ben Susak, or as I like to call him, Pre-Pre-Op Alexis Arquette. Seriously, look at him and then look at "still man" pics of Alexis Arquette... same lips, same face. Creepy. He's hard to look at but he lands in this category because the boy pulled out the Flashdance leg kicks and arm raises at the end of his routine last night and it was pure genius. Sure he was great the whole time, but those leg kicks and arm punches were inspired. I saw a steel mill in the background, I saw leg warmers, I saw water splashing on his body. Good times.

Cousin Heidi Groskreutz... the audience was manipulated into watching her instead of her partner last night. The music, the style, the dress, the lighting all forced you to watch Cousin Heidi gracefully glide across that dancefloor. It was almost scary, because it seemed such the showcase for her. What can ya do? She's got crazy sharp features and some eyebrows that need thinning but I think she has a shot at going as far as her gay, whoops, her Chrisitan Cousin Benji. All Jon had to say was... "I hate Enya" to which I replied... "I don't mind!"

Performance of the Night:

Special Thanks to for being the only one with video!

Tonight the bottom three couples DANCE FOR THEIR LIFE and Nelly Furtado showcases her super svelt body with a live performance of a song I'm not too keen on. Which is sad really because I'm a real fan of her first two albums and somehow actually got into her whole Portuguese thang... but this hip-hoppy shit is not my bag baby.


  • True Directions, funny.

  • I had a visceral negative reaction to Ben's pants. Read the whole tirade on my blog:

  • Just popped over and I gotta tell ya, I had nothing with to comment on with the pants. That hair and those lips and teeth though, geesh!

  • You made yourself look like a jerk for making unfounded comments about Benji. Ripping on other people only makes you look bad.

  • all Benji comments revised to include the following statement:

  • you said your dvr stopped recorded when the last two guys were being told their fate. That is what happened to me. I couldnt find anything online - until I found your site. And that is how i found out Ivan was saved. I was a little shocked. I was wondering where you went to see the end...

  • nicole1242, welcome to the debauchery that is my blog. I actually just went to a couple forums and read it, unfortch I didn't get to see it. I'm hoping to find it on YouTube at some point and if I do, i will totes post it here for everyone.

  • Benji is not gay-he's just a Mormon boy! I"ve dated a couple in my time, and trust me, they tend to be sorta corn fed sweet and naive, and they tend to know how to dance ballroom and swing(I don't know why, they just do).

    Benji is classic Mormon boy material here-virginal, sweet, but has the spirit of Kevin Bacon just waiting to break loose! Footloose that is! I bet that is the closes he ever got to second base with a girl ever, and that's because good Mormon boys aren't suppossed to even makeout until they get married...

    (ps-alot of Mormon missionary boys get dumped on their mission too and their girls end up marrying someone else in the meantime-and why? CAUSE they can't have sex until they marry, and sometimes these girlfriends don't want to wait the full 2 years!!!

  • benji isn't gay? i guess clay isn't either.


    i think that Ben looks like Cojo in the making.

  • Benji is way too goofy to be gay, his clothes alone scream sloppy-hetero-college aged boy. The only reason people stereotype him as gay is cause he makes really lame faces when he dances and he cried on TV. He just comes off sorta naive to me.

  • would have to disagree with everyone about travis and martha
    i'm sure they're good at other forms of dance...but specifically Martha, DID NOT perform the FOSSE style well at all. it was completely amateur-ish.
    NATALIE hands down is the best dancer and performer. she is the most versatile...and to be honest, I haven't seen a dancer like her in years. not only is she technically superb but she has the emotion and performance in her face to go along with her body. xo

  • Perhaps before you start writing negative things, especially untrue accusations about someones sexuality you should check your facts. I'm assuming you are trying to mean by calling Benji gay, instead you are only making yourself appear childish and uneducated when I'm sure the opposite is true. Refrain from the namecalling please, and act your age.
