Laura: Flutie struggled last week. What do you think he needs to do to keep from being eliminated early?
Becca: I think he'll take the judges comments to heart which will help. The main things he needs to work on are his posture and his musicality. He has rhythm, but he needs to get better at shifting from one move to the next.
Laura: How much do you think the fact that his performance was at the beginning of the show last week will hurt him?
Becca: I think that it won't really affect him, but there are so many contestants now that it could hurt him.
Laura: I was initially thinking that his personality could carry him through, but it seems like a lot of the contestants are extremely personable. It's also tough for him that there are two other football players, splitting whatever sports voter contingent there might be.
Becca: I think that the fact that this is Latin night could help him, since his dance is going to be more strong and aggressive.
Laura: I feel like the judges are kind of judging them based on how much they like them as humans. So hopefully that is good for Doug?
Laura: Oh no. He did not look great in his intro. I think he feels more awkward about this than he expected to.
Becca: He looks so intense and ready to go waiting on the sidelines.
Laura: Oh man. That outfit.
Laura: Well they're certainly telling a story.
Becca: That was a pretty traditional dance, so that's a plus. He really went for it and didn't shy away, which I liked.
Laura: Yea, he definitely did better than last week.
Becca: He's used to football footwork, so he does need to work on being on the balls of his feet.
Laura: Do you feel like he took their advice from last week and integrated it?
Becca: I do, his posture was a lot better. I think it is good that they gave him technical criticisms because it gives him something to work on to keep getting better.
Becca: Those were good scores. I think he'll stay.
Laura: I think he really wants to get better and will keep improving if he sticks around.
Laura: I knew it was going to be Geraldo that was eliminated, but it was still stressful having Doug in the bottom three :(
Becca: I think that since he is good at taking criticism he should have a good chance to stay in the competition because he's going to work hard. But the fan vote is definitely needed for him!
