I need a new job! These guys each spent a whole hour on TV blathering about how hard they worked. So the combined practice time of the top two was 360ish hours or about 180 hours each over four months. Some of them my office mentioned that the celebrity each got around $250,000 and that is a comfy $1,400/hr that they got paid to practice with world class dance teachers. Plus, if you figure the average American works 50 hours a week, they put in less than 1/4 time .... I better send in my resume.
Heh. That is a good point. But a lot of the celebrities also are working other jobs while doing DWTS, so, who knows how many hours they actually log combined with all their other responsibilities. And I think the number was something more than 360 wasn't it? My brain is telling me I heard 600...?
