    Just checked D/W on twitter. Maks and Meryl are calling themselves Team M&M, Charlie and Sharna are Team Shar-Char.

    Tessa is more insecure than Meryl (just by watching their god awful "reality" show)

    why does every discussion about tessa and meryl always devolve into snarking over their looks

    they are both prettier and more accomplished with 100% more gold medals than you will ever have, deal w/ it

    I've never thought of Tessa as being insecure (she looks pretty sure on the ice to me), but maybe that was the approach they wanted in their reality show. It's like when she said she didn't know how to flirt, my mind went back to her Carmen Free Dance, and I thought "well if she didn't know how to flirt and she could pull that... imagine if she DID know".

    Agreed! I'm reading online articles about the new season; and people are saying D/W were brought in for ratings. I love D/W, but that says a lot about who else is on the show with them this season and about their current visibility in the U.S.
    I don't watch DWTS regularly....but I guess I'll have to now...

    Oy. Give it a rest.
    RiceSkate is the **** who needs to give it a rest. Shame on you. [ETA: I can't even keep up with copying all your snarky anti-V/M posts. ]

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Changing the subject:
    LOL, I do not think anyone in this thread can be objective as to the comparative name recognition of Davis and White relative to their DWTS competitors.

    I hope that D/W have fun. They probably will be able to teach their partners a thing or two -- as was the case with Hough. (After being "spoiled" with such a great partner in W all these years, sorry that D got stuck with Maks.)

    A big winner today is SOI, which will see a jump in ticket sales once DWTS starts airing. SOI surely will bend over backward to accommodate D/W's DWTS obligations, as well as DWTS working around their SOI schedule.

    Perhaps one day plastic surgeons will be able to do personality transplants. You know, like making kindness MUCH bigger and shaving down that unattractive hump of snark.

    Well a boy can dream...

    i never see tessa as anything less than 100% confident on the ice either, so she does an excellent job of covering herself. she said somewhere once she was terrified going back onto the ice after her first surgery because she thought people were laughing at her and thinking what a bad skater she was and when she gets criticism, she not only assumes it's because she's a bad skater but she's also a bad person. she probably suffers from a terrible case of type a perfectionism...but then again a lot of elite athletes probably do

    This will be fun to watch! But, I can't wrap my head around Meryl and Charlie NOT being partners. And then, if one of them gets sent home before the other...It'll be weird (for me).

    Really no uber insults are necessary since V/M aren't competing here. But if you want to throw shade at DJ Tanner, Winnie Cooper or the ocean swimming lady, that's fine with me.

    k i'm not sure who is saying d/w are being brought in for ratings because people stop caring about figure skaters and olympians approximately ten minutes after the olympics end...

    dwts is usually where has beens go to see their careers die in a burning inferno of embarrassment and humiliation, so at least d/w will bring at least some semblance of actual talent to the group

    I can't see Meryl with Maks, personality wise, but he might be happy that he has someone with dance talent and that he's back on the show this season. He was fun with Kirstie and loved him with Mel B. but otherwise most of his partners have been meh. I'm sure we'll see the inevitable package where Meryl takes him on the ice and tries to teach him to ice dance, and we see Maks fall on his ***.

    I'm from the U.S. and am fully aware of what DWTS is. I agree - totally for has-been's of the recent and far past. That being said, have you looked at who all is on their season? More nobodies than one season has had in a long time. And the Olympics just ended....so maybe their 10 minutes will be extended a bit longer since they've done so many interviews and such as of late?

    Anyways, I''m not nor was I trying to start anything. I was merely saying that in some of the general public's and the media's eyes that they're hyping this season up by the competition between D/W specifically. People already has an article about it online.

    In the short term this may seem great for D/W to do to stay in the spotlight and make some money while they are at it but for their skating legacy not going for a 3rd World title and back to back titles which only a few select teams have ever done is a mistake i think. To be honest Meryl and Charlie don't have much going for personalities other then saying how hard they work and appearing on a crappy reality show isn't going to change that. It didn't help Evan after he was done doing the show.
