Chris Jericho going home

Chris Jericho, the pro wrestler, was placed on the mat for good on “Dancing With the Stars.”

He’s a class act and came across as likable and warm through the weeks. He used his athleticism, competitiveness and acting ability to spice up the dance floor every week.

At this point, there are no really bad dancers left.   And Jericho had the lowest score when his tango disappointed the judges and he landed with a 22. A 22 is a respectable score but everybody else scored at least a 25 (with Romeo and Chelsea Kane garnering the first 10s of the season.)

Jericho knew he was vulnerable and didn’t perform his best this week.

“Everybody here is so evenly matched,” he noted tonight.

Now it only gets tougher as the remaining six celebrities have to do two dances next week.

Kendra, who is arguably the most divisive of the remaining contestants, shook her booty big time and took advantage of her assets for her Samba. (Not surprisingly, she is far better on the Latin dances than the ballroom dances.)

She will leave soon enough. In fact, she’s lasted a lot longer than I expected.

Any of the other five could arguably take home the mirror-ball trophy. Both Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley clearly have big fan bases. UGA grad and Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward has been solid from week one and has the highest average score so far. Romeo and Chelsea Kane, the two young guns, are both getting stronger each week.

Yes, “first” was funny sometime in 2010, but let’s move forward shall we…?

I’m glad that Chris was booted rather than the others. I think the competition is really getting close, and I am excited to see what happens next week. Thanks for the blog entry, Rodney!

Am I the only one that noticed how bad the Backstreet Boys sounded? Brain Littrell was shockingly bad. They need to stick to lip synching.

I am Kendra fan, and loved the abundance of cleavage this week. But she really needs to learn some more moves. She does the same tired moves every week. She is almost as bad as Mariah Carey dancing.

C’mon Rodney! “There are no really bad dancers left.” Really? Kendra is awful! She should have been the one to go home. Not Chris.
