That's the big story for week three of the ballroom competition and it put front-runner Misty May-Treanor and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy out of the competition.
It all began on Friday night, when Misty was practicing her dance routine in the ballroom. She was doing a backwards hop, step when she (and we?) heard a pop. Misty says she thought she banged into the last step of the judge's area but when she tried to put weight on her foot it was as if she had no foot at all. Rocco and Karina, who were nearby, ran to her aide and tried to comfort her before the ambulance arrived and took her to the hospital. The verdict, she's not going to be dancing or playing volleyball anytime soon.
Misty appeared on last night's performance show, walking to center stage on crutches, her leg in a cast. She sat and chatted with Tom for a bit and on one hand I thought it was nice that they gave her a moment in the spotlight before leaving the competition. On the other hand the show does exhibit a kind of ghoulish joy when anyone gets hurt. They'll air that clip of the poor girl in obvious pain ten more times in the coming weeks just as they did with Marie's fainting spell and Antonio's shoulder incident. I swear this is the most dangerous reality show on TV bar none!
Now then, let's get back to business because there's still a competition at hand.
Cody and Julianne performed a high-energy jive but it wasn't one of my favorites. There's a maturity lacking in Cody that shows through in his performances. Sweet kid, and obviously talented but I think it'll be a few more years before he's a force to be reckoned with. Cody did get one of the funniest red room moments. Samantha asked him if he noticed a change in his fan base now that he was doing Dancing and he said that he had spotted a few older women giving him the eye. To that Cloris pops out of nowhere and gloms on to the boy. Poor thing was probably truly startled, but he played it for all it was worth and it was an amusing break from the predictable interview section.
