Is he dancing with a woman? Or a man? I'm just wondering because it seems that all they keep going for is controversy because the ratings are dropping. (Yes, he's a funny guy and very OUT, so I don't see that as a slam, more of a question of curiosity and the desire the show has to be outre at times to get more attention.)
(That show jumped the shark after the second or third season. I'm not sure why it's still on. Those are not "stars" dancing! And most of it's really, really bad dancing.)
Not watching this one. For some reason I was looking for a news report, The Reno Air show accident IIRC, on Headline "news" and had to sit thru NG dithering on and on and on about DWTS for 10 minutes to get 30 seconds of actual news.
No thanks. Carson or not. Hasn't been any good since Jerry Springer was on it.
When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.
LOVE Carson! I just wish he would do another makeover series maybe for Animal Planet called perhaps "QUEER EYE FOR THE SHOW GUY" though addressing competitors of all genders, to address the abundant (shudder) inappropriateness seen in some shows regarding turnout - both horse and rider. Also, some of the "W-M Peeps" styles of audience members (double shudder). Why no one should wear flip flops around horses (triple shudder). What's up with showing undernourished horses. What the judge sees across the arena that you don't see when you look in the mirror. Why wearing a black helmet on a very hot day is a very bad idea. Yeah - ones for Carson alright!!! Why wearing some colors of habits on some colors of horses make you look a) fat, b) like a giant raindrop trotting down the rail, c) who? where? I didn't see her in that class, disappeared again....
...and why judges are welcome to check boots as appointments on sidesaddle riders but aprons shall not ever be lifted above a handspan above the ankle...
Carson - go for it! You KNOW you would have a huge audience and I bet you could get some fantastic sponsors of show gear/clothes!

Sorry, dance is if anything more nepotistic than horses, ergo I must keep voting for Tristan and Nancy until they're gone because Tristan and I worked for the same studio in Boston. (And he's a sweetheart-only DWTS pro I knew before he was on the show and he really deserves to be there.)
Plus I don't recall Tristain ever being a massive PITA about messing with the schedule (I was the receptionist/working student), and such virtue must be rewarded.
ETA: Velvet, of course he's dancing with a woman. (Anna Trebunskaya.) While the precentage of gay guys in ballroom is much lower than people think (drastically lower than hunters or figure skating--in fact IIRC all the DWTS male pros this season are straight and Louis's the only regular I know isn't) they dance with women. It's like pairs skating (ironically the skaterfen get their knickers in a twist about OMG HOW COME YOU CAN'T HAVE SAME-SEX BALLROOM COUPLES IN REGULAR COMPS when skating doesn't allow it in either couples discipline). If you're male (in whatever respect; Chaz Bono is dancing with a female pro) you dance with a female partner.
Are you kidding? I don't know whether to laugh or throw something through a window.... So much wrong with this but for all intensive purposes...
And we can toss "instensive purposes" after it out the window; it's "intents and purposes." Pet peeve.
Chaz lives and acts as a male, ergo he's functionally male (in the social-function sense, not the physical, as he hasn't had THAT sort of surgery), ergo he dances the male part. Lacey's not sleeping with him, she's dancing with him. It's no different than dancing with a straight male you're not attracted to, which happens all the time in dancesport. If anything it's a lot nicer to dance with someone where there is no chance whatsover of that getting in the way.
Carson shows saddlebreds? Can he come over to hunter/jumper land and liven up the fashions a bit? At least a little color variation?
