But I feel there won't be as much of a strong connection with Val as is with Maks that's plays a factor too

You don’t have to have a deep, smoldering and emotional connection with someone to make a dance work. As long as you like each other and have some sort of chemistry (which Meryl and Val did as seen with that A Tango), it’ll work. And Meryl’s an Olympic athlete. I think she would be able to make it work with anyone that she’s paired with to be honest.

Do you think the way Maks choreographs for Meryl is similar to the way Mark choreographed for Aly, like he's completely blind to the fact that she's capable of WAY more than he's giving her?

YES! OMG I never thought of that comparison before but that is totally it. And Meryl doesn’t even have the problem of counting music that Aly had.

Purely out of curiosity, why don't you like meryl and maks?

I just find their partnership to be extremely strange. Odd even. I don’t like how Maks is choreographing dances with her. It’s a complete and total waste of the stuff that she can do. I didn’t feel that way when she was with Val. In fact I wish she had gotten Val instead of Maks. He would have challenged her and I think it would have been nice to see that. I’m glad she’s having fun but I just feel like putting her with Maks is a total waste of talent. Especially if Maks is going to refuse to create dances like he did with Mel B.

So you think the chemistry between Meryl and Maks is a showmance?

I definitely think that it’s starting to creep into that territory.

Oh well whaddya know, your favorite couple is Derek/Amy? I'm sooo surprised! Oh, & your two least favorite just so happen to be Maks/Meryl & Val/Danica? Whaaat?! I'm SHOCKED! Hahahaha NOT. Biased much? It's SO clear to every one of your followers: you're one of those crazed Derek-stans. Next time, you could at least try and be a little less predictable... This might as well just be another one of those DHough-fangirl blogs. Are you also a 16 yr old who runs a pro-Derek twitter account too? LMFAO

Well well well. I thought I was done with y’all this season. Why don’t we just make this easy. You come off anon, message me and I’ll block you. Problem solved right?

First off let me get this straight so no one else makes this stupid mistake. If you don’t like who I like, fine. I have absolutely no problem with that. If you have a problem with who I like, then don’t follow me. No one is telling you to follow me. And no one is keeping you here. I’m not going to change who I like because a select few of you Chmerkovskiy fans (yes it is only you all who do this) don’t like that Derek is my favorite pro. But it’s not Derek that makes the partnership for me. It’s he and his celeb together. As it has been for all of the pairings that I like.

And I said I like the entire cast minus two couples. So why you zero in on one couple is beyond me. As for all of that other crap you wrote, I’ll just ignore that. Because you’re just being a troll.

Who's your favorite couple this season?

Amy and Derek because I just love her story and what they’re doing together. Candace and Mark and Charlie and Sharna are close though. I’m also really starting to like Nene and Tony and James and Peta. Drew and Cheryl are cool too. Basically I like them all except Val and Danica (and even she’s growing on me a bit even though I find her extremely boring and not engaging in the slightest) and Meryl and Maks.

Something about Meryl and Maks rubs me the wrong way. I don't think it has to do with Meryl because she seems really sweet and I think she has a good chance of winning. I pretty sure it's the way that Maks acts around her that bothers me. It seems as if he's always trying to hug her, or kiss her, or basically touch her and I'm sure he genuinely likes her but I feel like he needs to chill and stop with the PDA. It's slowly turning into some kind of subtle showmance and idk how I feel about that.

I’ve seen so many people comment on this so you’re not alone. I don’t really see it myself because they’re my least favorite couple this season and I tend to zone out after they’re done dancing. I just listen to their scores and critiques and interview (sometimes) and stuff. But I do get the feeling that there is a showmance trying to slide in between them and I just don’t want that to happen. I hate showmances so much. Either you’re in a relationship or you’re not (and I know that they aren’t). Don’t tease it for votes or anything like that. It’s sickening. And doesn’t Meryl have a boyfriend anyway?

Do you know how the partnerships are chosen on DWTS? I don't think it's random, even though sometimes it might be. One thing that kinda disappoints me is when they let people who everyone knows won't be able to win not because they have no talent, but because of their physical state i.e Bill Nye last season and Billie this season.

It’s not random. The first thing they match up is heights. That’s really the most important piece. If it were random, you might get Nene with Mark and that would look all kinds of awkward and their ballroom dances would suffer. Then I think they match up personalities as best as they can. Sometimes, stars can request who they want. And it can end up being really good (Jennifer and Derek, Kirstie and Maks, Kelly and Louis) or it can turn out to be really bad (Liz and Val, Leah and Tony). And physical state has nothing to do with winning. It’s all about talent and likability. Jennifer had pins in her neck and almost couldn’t compete the night of the finale because her body was so broken down. And she still won. Bill Nye on the other hand just wasn’t very good, even before his knee injury. And Billy Dee, well bless his heart. He had two hip replacement surgeries and is 77. The fact that he was able to even get out there and do any sort of dance was a feat within itself. I’m pretty sure he knew he wouldn’t get far anyway. He probably just signed on to do the show for fun.

Yes! It was the contemporary or something when Peta came out with that amazing routine for Brant. It was as if after that dance something really clicked and she started to really teach him. I think they could have made to to at least 5th or even 4th if it weren't for Leah and Bill, especially if she kept choreographing the way she was and the fact that Brant had a lot of potential. So, are you starting to warm up to Peta this season?

Yep. Even though I’m happy Bill and Emma made it as far as they did. That was a fun journey to watch. Leah on the other hand, not so much. And it’s not so much that I’m warming up to Peta. I liked her in season 14. She just severely disappointed me with Gilles in season 15 and season 16 and half of 17 were just bad. Now she’s going back to how she was with Donald and even though she’s still not my favorite pro or close to it, I am appreciating what she has been doing thus far.
