It's seemingly a 2-horse race btwn Helio and Cheetos Girl. Can't imagine anyone else winning barring carbon blob shenanigans. I wasn't as impressed with H&J's dance last week as others but this week's dance was very fun to watch.

Sadly I think this will be the last we see of Kym. Can't imagine Cubes pulling in many votes.

Unless they have a really bad week or there's a voting disaster, Helio & Julianne are a lock for finals.

I don't know if Cuban was any good this week or not, thanks to Kym's (lack of) dress

Marie was surprisingly very good.

Jennie was pretty good until the end. I'm afraid she could be in trouble in the near future unless there's a huge 90210 voting block out there.

Cheetah girl wasn't as annoying this week. Hopefully she's permanently dropped the "Cheetah-licious" shtick until she goes back to the Disney Channel. She was the best of the female dancers, but chunky girls should not wear tight red dresses.

Newton was clearly the worst. Hopefully the geezer vote doesn't save him tomorrow night.

I think if it had been another week or two in, Helio and Julianne would have received a 10 for their dance. It deserved a 10.

Hopefully Cubes can hang on another week or two, so we can see more of Kym!

Cubes going so early in the show is not good. He danced well enough to stay, but between not having a big fan base, going early, the sympathy for Jennie falling, the sympathy for Wayne being old, and "I'm doing this for my dead grandfather", his odds are long.

Great to see Helio doing so well. I knew he'd be the most likable personality on the show, but I didn't know he could dance too. Just like last season, everything Julianne and her parter do is a joy to watch.

Agree that Helio and Cheetah Girl will/should be in the finals.

Question about the scoring:
Wayne Newton had the lowest judges score last night and Cuban 2nd lowest. What if Cuban gets the lowest number of audience votes and Newton 2nd lowest? Who goes then?

The scoring isn't done in ordinals anymore (a serious flaw in early seasons). It's percentage of total score + percentage of total votes. I believe if there's somehow a tie, they still default to the audience, but that's incredibly unlikely.

After two weeks and each dancer having done 1 ballroom and 1 Latin dance, this is how I rank them:

1st tier:
Helio
Sabrina

2nd tier:
Mel B.
Marie

3rd tier:
Albert
Floyd
Jane
Jennie
Cameron

4th tier:
Mark

5th tier:
Wayne

Wayne should be the one to go. I'm afraid he will get hurt. He should go before he really gets nasty comments.

Mark still seems a bit stiff for me even though I can see he's trying so hard and he really is selling it better than even some of the people I ranked higher than him.

I think the stiff posture in the quickstep really suited Floyd better. He moved up in my book. With that said, he's going to have to loosen up a bit. Sometimes he's concentrating so hard on the steps I'm not sure if he's having fun and it shows.

Cameron seems like a head case. Kind of like Ian from a season ago.

Tom announced that she is safe in the voting and she will return to the show next week and continue to dance as a tribute to her mother.

Well, there goes my eye candy!

I was really, really surprised on that one. I thought it would be Floyd or Wayne.

I have no idea who Albert even was.

I would be enjoying this season more if I knew who more of these "celebrities" were.

You would think with this show being as successful as it is they could get better stars than The Surreal Life.

I wasn't really surprised to see Albert go because he kept acting so smug.

Hopefully, Wayne and Cuban will be the next ones to leave.
