Dancing With The Stars Recap: Len's Crackling, Carrie Ann's On Drugs, Bruno Loves The Package Recap and Commentary by RTVC Staff Writer Melissa Stavarski

in the eyes!
Welcome to season 14 of Dancing with the Stars! Our hosts, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet, introduce us to this season’s stars.
We have a TV host, an actor and singer, a Super bowl champion, a singer and songwriter, a Disney star, a TV host and actress, a TV icon, an actor, a tennis legend, a classical singer, a music legend, and a TV star.
The staircase splits and the stars line up for the camera, awkward dancing and camera man induced nausea ensues. Sherri is already annoying me and Cheryl Burke looks constipated.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Up first, Maria Menounous and Derek Hough. Team Menough. Maria is a host on Extra. I have a feeling this will work in her favor.
With Mario Lopez and his dimples in her corner, she should grab a few extra (no pun intended) votes. She’s very pretty.
Derek, the only Dancing with the Stars three-time champion, tells us he wants as many trophies as he has chest hairs. That’s four, folks.
Cue the rehearsal clip. Derek says Maria starts out like Bambi on ice. Maria is out of her element, doing “girly” stuff. She implies dancing is “girly” to a man who dances for a living.
Score two points for Maria just for the sake of making fun of Derek, albeit unintentionally.
Then, she tells Derek that she’s very athletic and refers to herself as a dude with boobs. For that, I take away three points.
And, what is that obnoxious sound coming out of her? Is that a laugh? Is there a phone number I can call to vote off that laugh?
They dance the Cha Cha. I love Maria’s outfit. Her dancing looks stiff. She may be athletic, but she’s lacking musicality and grace.
What do the judges have to say?
Len Goodman, nothing can prepare you for the first dance. He thinks they coped well but wished for a little more hip action.
Bruno Tonioli calls Maria curvaceously delicious. Adding, her timing was good and she needs to open up her sexpot.
Derek jumps in with a well timed, “I’ll work on it.”
