Not much actual strategy seemed to be at play, or at least nothing malicious. This is clearly not Survivor! For example, Apolo Ohno andKarina Smirnoff were given Hip Hop, which is one of his strengths, if you watched his Season 4 winning Freestyle. And considering former cheerleader/choreographer Paula Abdul will be a guest judge, something like Hip Hop will probably be right up her alley. Sabrina Bryan andLouis van Amstel gave Kirstie Alley andMaksim Chmerkovskiy the Charleston to be nice, although you’d never know it from Kirstie and Maks’ reaction. They acted as if they’d been shot! Guess they would’ve preferred the last option, Rock & Roll, which went to Bristol and Mark.
WHO IS DANCING WHAT?
Here’s the rundown of who gave which dance to which couple:
Bristol Palin &Mark Ballas — They were left with Rock & Roll, which was probably a good one to have. Kirstie and Maks probably would’ve loved to be stuck with that. But Bristol and Mark really wanted a Tango — not that that was an option. Then again, Rock & Roll isn't really a dance style, so they could easily come up with a Rock & Roll-themed Tango.
However, at the end of the night, it was revealed that Helio and Chelsie would be going home. So .. no Broadway performance?! Double bummer!
