    Who else is going to be glued to the TV and watch "Dancing with the Stars"?
    JUSSSST a leetle bit of schadenfreude if she gets "kicked off the island'.

    Looking for the next big thing.. ... @suzieswimcoach www.suziedodsswimcoaching.com

    I heard that this morning. NOT excited. I normally watch (I know, I'm a nerd)... Maybe fun to see if she finds ways to mislead the voters or get around the rules? Or perhaps she'll just inspire us all to dream a little bigger.

    I normally don't like to be snarky, but the husband cracked me up when we heard that DN is going to be on "Dancing." He said he wonders if she will sit some dances out but still convince everyone that she did the whole thing. Or perhaps she will insist on having her own camera crew. Sorry...

    Will she need any outside help with jumps? Her legs aren't that strong and did almost nothing during her swims.

    I notice Dolphin Club's Twitter account tweeting in support of DN!

    These past few DWTS comments have resulted in me clicking the Like button more so than any other time since the MSF were born. Love it!

    But at least DNOWS is giving Dancing With The Stars updates.

    To be fair, the stormtroopers were for Billy Dee Williams.

    @IronMike, loved the blog. One thing you forgot was that not only will she declare herself the winner by her own rules, she'll win by setting a world record.

    And, she's done..

    I held firm in my refusal to watch. My wonderful mother texted me the good news last night. Glad I can start watching again- my Monday nights were empty without DWTS. I think we should get Jamie Patrick on there next fall after his mega swim! :-)

    Thank you DWTS for not making us suffer through another dance by DN during the season finale! Even better she may have been the only celbrity who didn't get any air time! (I didnt watch the first week but did tune in to see her be the 1st to be eliminated and then could enjoy the remainder of the season). Some fantastic dancing this season!
  • ssthomasssthomas DenverCharter Member
    I'm with you @firebah! I was super glad I only caught a glimpse of her. I boycotted the first episode and enjoyed the rest of the season tremendously. The finale was so much sweeter not having to watch her dance again. :-)
  • IronMikeIronMike Moscow, RussiaCharter Member
    Oh damn, I stopped watching after she left. Not really my show (SYTYCD is much better). Didn't know there was a chance she'd be on the finale.
