DWTS Season 29 Discussion Thread in Dancing With The Stars Posted October 15, 2020 1 hour ago, *Wallace said: Ooh i agree with everything you said. Having a double elimination at Week 2 to get rid of Carole and Charles would have been very ideal and easygoing. And yeah I was also thinking having one a Top 10 into Top 8 would have been good too. i personally like having DEs with an even amount of couples for some reason. Your format sounds and works well for me. And yeah with us getting just one season now ( ), I wouldn't mind them extending the season a little longer until early December. Especially when we have such large casts like this. I have a theory that they didn't start with a double elimination because they were trying to make it easy for Carole (the big ratings draw this season) to last at least a few weeks, no matter how terrible she was. They were gonna try to milk that as long as possible. She still got kicked off week 3 though. And so, because of that, I was kind of expecting a double cut week 4. I figured they'd want to quickly burn off some filler contestants (which would have taken out Anne AND Monica that week which I would have been okay with haha), but that came and went... So now I have no idea what they're doing.
