Judges Comments:

Len: In all the basic steps your footwork was correct. It just had a roughness about it.

Judges' Comments:

Len: It wasn’t a great first dance. You’ve got to get slicker.
Bruno: You have a great presence, but the cha cha cha was poor. The footwork was out, the content was out.
Carrie Ann: You beat Jerry Rice’s charisma. You’ve got to fill it with way more dance moves.

Judges' Comments:

Len: Your hair’s not what you expect in a ballroom. I was surprised you could hear the music with it all hanging down. Your technique was very good. I enjoyed your dancing very much.
Bruno: It was so cute. It was like watching a little dancing hobbit. If you carry on you’re going to be really, really good.
Carrie Ann: I didn’t expect that from you. You obviously have not danced before. I really enjoyed it, it’s truly fun to watch.

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: The footwork was poor, the hands terrible, and the timing went
Carrie Ann: You’re not graceful yet, but you were smooth

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: You can play an audience like a master fiddler – full-frontal theatrical, and it works. But the foxtrot wasn’t as good as the theatricality.
Carrie Ann: You’re obviously going to be a fan favorite
Len: For me, too theatrical, too much razzmatazz

Judges' Comments:
Bruno: You’re crazier than Sarah Palin. The little cha cha you did was not bad, the rest, I am not sure.
Carrie Ann: That was surreal. You’re very light on your feet, you have a natural grace to you. You’re rockin’ it for the older crowd.
Len: Parts were magic, parts were tragic.

Waltz Relay:
4th place, 4 points
