    Some pics from the San Francisco Open

    Some more pics from Saturday evening: http://dancescientist.com/starlite/photos/SFOpen2006Saturday/ By the way, I'm not the owner of the gallery. The owner, George, just joined the forum, but he can't post a link until he's posted 15 other messages (forum rules)!

    My theory: Stacey tanked the finals to make sure Drew, and not Jerry, wins!

    I told my friend about my theory, and he added that ABC doesn't even need to ask Stacey. They can just ask Tony, since they have more leverage over him. Imagine ABC saying to Tony, "Hey, you guys have the least number of votes every week and will place third in the finals no matter how the...

    Season 3 Fantasies--Who Would You Like to See?

    I'd like to see another wrestler, a real one. Like the 400-lb Rikishi! He can move. :)

    My theory: Stacey tanked the finals to make sure Drew, and not Jerry, wins!

    Your comment is exactly why I believe Stacey did ABC a big favor by finishing behind Drew in the judge's score. If Jerry had the most votes, and Stacey had the least, she would finish third regardless of how she placed among the judges' scores. Her scores would only determine whether Drew or...

    Scoring?

    Interestingly, if Stacey had two more points in the scoring and beat out Drew in the judges' scoring, she still would have been announced as the third place finisher, and Jerry Rice would be holding the DWTS trophy!

    My theory: Stacey tanked the finals to make sure Drew, and not Jerry, wins!

    Well, the show is over, and everything went as I expected. I still think Stacey took a dive on Thursday to avoid the embarrassment to ABC of winning the judges' votes, and then being announced as the third place finisher and having Jerry holding the trophy. :)

    Hmm... Was there a show tonight? I thought it was just on Sunday. I hope I didn't miss anything.

    DWTS 2 - Final week [SPOILERS]

    Interesting question. I guess the stars are in a rare distinction of getting paid to dance but not a high level. :-).

    My theory: Stacey tanked the finals to make sure Drew, and not Jerry, wins!

    Given the storylines I sometimes see on Dancing with the Stars, I think a lot of it might be staged. I began to suspect this when Kelly Monaco received a 30/30 last season for her final routine, which was less than stellar, to beat John by one point. All of the previous underdog hype, and even...

    My theory: Stacey tanked the finals to make sure Drew, and not Jerry, wins!

    Hey guys, I have a theory I'm sure will be controversial, but it makes some sense to me. First of all, I'm glad the rumors I had reported that the judges scores will count for 2/3 of the overall score was false. http://www.dance-forums.com/showthread.php?t=11779 The source of the information...

    Judge's scores will count for 2/3 for finals?!

    Interesting... Well, I would object less to counting the judges scores so that they total to 50% of the overall score. In that case, Jerry can still win! In fact, it'd be hard for him to finish anything less than second if he gets the most votes. I agree that Jerry is doing very well on his...

    Judge's scores will count for 2/3 for finals?!

    So, no one heard anything about this rule change? I'd like to confirm this information. It changes the game completely. I guess we'll find out Thursday.

    Judge's scores will count for 2/3 for finals?!

    I heard from someone who talked to Anna that the judge's scores will count for 2/3 of the overall score in the finals. Instead of having a Friday awards show, they will wait until Sunday, where the finalists will dance and be scored by the judges again. So, they'll be adding two scores based on...
