You might not have thought of Kristi as a schemer during the 200th episode celebration of Dancing with the Stars last night, but one viewer did. Over at Movieline, Louis Virtel wonders if former Dancing with the Stars champion Kristi Yamaguchi sabotaged the show by selecting all the lower-end dancers.
Writes Louis: "When Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno picked three pairs of remaining dancers each for the team cha-cha-chas, Ohno smartly chose Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough as the first duo for his squad. Yamaguchi selected next and chose… Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas."
He continues: "What. The worst team on the show? Really, Kristi? Are you just trying to make Bristol feel good? [...] Yamaguchi rounded out her team with Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke (eh) and Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer (meh)."
Still, despite this bizarre strategy, all things seemed to work out in the end. "But the joke’s on me, because Yamaguchi’s team scored a collective 24 while Ohno’s team racked up a 27. If the Audrina Patridge Rule of Voter Randomness comes into play, that gap is not nearly enough to ensure that the one of the lesser-scorers will go home."
What do you think DWTS fans? Was Kristi's performance as team captain a little underwhelming?
