Sneak Peek of DWTS Season 12, Week 6: Couples Discuss Guilty Pleasures
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower
Romeo's guilty pleasure is getting massages — four times a week! Chelsie says she grew up playing Halo with five brothers, so her guilty pleasure is playing video games. (Hmm.... just like Mark Ballas.)
Chelsie says the changing themes make things more exciting because it gives the pros different inspiration.
Romeo says this week is going to shock a lot of people. "This song definitely means a lot to me and it's going to be a good week, that's all I'm gonna say. You're going to learn something about Romeo that you don't know about."
That he's a country fan or likes "chick music," as Chelsie puts it? Romeo brushes off the “chick music” comment, but he does seem to watch “chick flicks.” He calls himself "a hopeless romantic" who hasn't found his Juliet yet. Aww!
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: Paso Doble
Ralph's guilty pleasure: Checking out past DWTS routines on YouTube to better understand what he's supposed to dance next and... Epsom salt baths?
Karina loves the challenge of the different themes, but she wishes the judges would understand and accept the restrictions of the themes — instead of looking for pink ruffled sleeves during a Samba to "Sweet Home Alabama." (Burn!)
Ralph said their Guilty Pleasures Week song will make you "smile and jump out of your seat. It's gonna make you dance." Everyone knows this song within one note, Ralph says. It's the antithesis of the kind of music he normally listens to, but this is a song he always cranks up.
Karina says there's a really high note in the song and Ralph can actually hit that note himself. We may even hear him sing the note in their rehearsal package...
Kirstie: "I think that my lemurs are my guilty pleasure because, you know, they're sort of exotic and not many people have them and I'm obsessed with them, so that's my guilty pleasure." Maks: "I'm exotic." (Don’t worry, Maks! We’re all obsessed with you, we just don’t feel guilty about it.)
Maks says they are basically blowing off the whole idea of a theme and just doing a classic Samba. "We're going a little Brazilian," Maks says — to which Kirstie makes a "You said it, not me" face.
By the way, Kirstie calls the recently eliminated Petra Nemcova the most beautiful person they've ever had dance on the show. "She's a real role model for everybody out there." Agreed!
Cheryl doesn't mind all the themes because it narrow things down a little bit with the style of the dance, the costumes, and choreography. Classical Week is her favorite theme so far. (Ours too! Do that one again!)
Another week, another theme onDancing With the Stars Season 12. For Week 6, it’s Guilty Pleasures. Like Story Week, the celebrities get to choose their own music, this time based on their own personal guilty pleasures. The dances themselves are all over the map — Samba, Quickstep, Paso Doble, Viennese Waltz, and the first Tango of the season.
Check out what the final seven couples told On the Red Carpet about their guilty pleasures (lemurs? Toddlers & Tiaras?!) and how they feel about all these weekly DWTS themes.
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: Quickstep Chelsea's biggest guilty pleasure is Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles and Toddlers & Tiaras. Mark's guilty pleasures are Domino's Pizza and the video game Mortal Kombat.
What is everyone dancing to this week? "It's all songs you hate to admit that you love,” Mark says. Mark loves the various themes this season "because I hate seeing a dance that's just a dance. I want to see a story."
The Quickstep is a full energy routine and Chelsea says it will be fun. They like the fast dances, but it will be the first time they'll dance in hold.
By the way, Mark wears Secret deodorant. Strong enough for a man...
Oh and Mark said he didn't know that hisAmerican Idolgirl “friend”Pia Toscano would be performing on next week’s Results Show until he heard about it on Tuesday. He not only had nothing to do with making it happen, he didn't know in advance.
Mark is pelted with questions about his relationship with Pia and he gets uncomfortable. Poor Mark! Having said that, it's so on with Pia. It just is.
