Is  this the first time skai has not been the most viewed ?

You would be correct on this. That was rather surprising to see. 😮 But i think all the Katilyn/Artem vs. Carrie Ann drama helped Kaitlyn get the most views this week.

People are being messy in Chrishell's comments on her Insta, they are so trashy. Asking her if she broke them up or if she slept with Gleb. Let Chrishell be!

Ugh that's so upsetting but hardly surprising of people. :/

Their daughter Olivia just turned 10 this week and their other daughter Zlata is only a toddler 🥺.  I hope their parents disable the comments on their daughters’ IG accounts, Zlata probably doesn’t use it since she’s so little but Olivia might go on hers and see comments from strangers about her parents’ split.  

No wonder Elena wasn’t posting about voting for Chrishell & Gleb this season, she usually supported Gleb and his partner in past seasons.  

That would be a good idea for them to block the  comments.


Omgg whoaa, I had no idea about this. 😮 But wow, that would have been very telling for those that follow her. 😮

Hmmm ok not surprised we're getting a redemption round of dances. This is why I am bummed the couples didn't do two individual dances last night because we're gonna miss out on another style the couples could have done.



I think i predicted a lot of these styles right so yay!


- Kaitlyn Paso redemption definitely makes sense, especially with the CA drama that erupted from her last Paso. I can see this being great for her. Never imagined a Contemporary to that song (and not my favorite song  choice tbh) but with that song choice, I can certainly see Chris loving this. :giggle: 


- Yayy I've been wanting a Skai VW for such a long time so yay this happening! 😄 Don't know the song. A Cha-Cha redemption makes sense. Ugh wish I could have guessed that.


- Kinda surprised Justina has a Tango redemption as her previous Tango was really good and was amongst my faves from her, but she's got a more traditional song so I see this being even better. Ooh I remember someone doing a Contemporary to this song - it was a weaker dancer I can't recall. Maybe Alek or Chris Soules? Justina's will be great.


- Love Nelly's Jive song and he should have fun with that. Hmm kinda surprised the Paso is his redemption dance as the judges loved his previous Paso and called it his breakthrough. This song will have more of a Paso feel. But it makes me think of Bethany's Paso, which was one of my faves from her.


- Nev getting a Foxtrot redemption is def the right choice and an obvious call there (which I hope i predicted). Love both songs for both of his styles, and I can certainly see him nailing and delivering a great Contemporary.


- Johnny Salsa redemption makes sense, and I figured it would be a Latin style now that I thought about it now lol. Ooh he should do well with a Jazz too.


Ooh and also ugh too many Contemporary dances. Although I am sure they will all be great.

What kind of SYTYCD8 realness @ the amount of contemporaries?

LMAOOO at this. :dead: I guess since we didn't have a SYTYCD this year, they wanted to treat this episode as one. Like how we had 3 Jazzs on 80s Night. :haha:

If Hannah won with James right there than Kaitlyn should but honestly she's the better dancer. I have a feeling she's destined for 3rd. Nev is winning. 


The scary thought is Nelly winning or getting 2nd place.  Which sadly, might happen because these judges and voters are insufferable sometimes.

kaitlyn is destroying everyone in youtube views :dead:  even if they're not the best metric of votes i honestly think she could take it this year

I am just about to put together my Youtube stats later on tonight..... and yeah wow she is killing it on the views all of a sudden now. :haha: 


I do think it's between Nev and Kaitlyn, leaning towards Nev winning it.

If a Bachelor contestant wins two years in a row I really hope we can take a break from them for S30.

Ugh yeah I'm in one and two was about this. 


A part of me really wants to see Tayshia on the show next year, as I love her more than Hannah & Kaitlyn - though not sure of her dance background. But would also want at least a break of a Bachelor Nation person or some mediocre that poses no threat to win. :haha: 

21 hours ago, ungodlyhour said:

i see 2 futures:

1) tayshia on s30

2) s30 is all-stars and we get at least 3 bachelor nation contestants





I wouldn't be surprised with any of these happening lol.
