I'm not all too thrilled with Sabrina being "voted" to the All Star cast. I wasn't a fan of her the first time and I probably won't be again.

My votes are still going to Helio.

I'm disappointed too. I wonder if there isn't some clause though in the voting procedure, where the producers can override and have final say over who gets picked, or who ultimately wins. This way, they maintain final control in case there is any trouble.

Back when Sabrina was voted off, there was some website that purposely banded people together to vote on all reality shows for the loser, or most hated person, to purposely skew the votes and keep a person who would have gone home on.

You combine that with not enough people voting for Sabrina that week, and someone else (who would have gone) moves right past her and stays.

In terms of drama & tension for the show, it sounds really splashy to her her come back and see how far she would have gone.

We knew Kyle was really good, and sometimes he dances with the ensemble dancers, do he has been continuing to dance. No drama there.

Carson, as fun as he would be, wasn't that good of a dancer. So he'd be possibly booted off rather early.

Sabrina would last as long as kyle, with people rooting to see she can go this time. IF the producers stepped it, in makes sense why.

Personally (putting on flame suit ) I think there SHOULD be a little bit of an override procedure where the judges ultimately have final say over who stays and who goes.

I can think of at least twice (Bristol and Master P. ) when "fans" have banded together and made sure that those lesser dancers stayed on WAY longer than they should have. Because of that, much better dancers got booted out too early.

I believe that, to finally get rid of Master P, the judges had to resort to scoring him 2's and 3's.

E. Smith will win. The man just has too many fans and he's a cool dancer, looks like he's having fun.

And in Bristol's season, they had to give the judges an extra dance or something that allowed them triple points, or something like that, where no mater how many people voted for Bristol, the judges votes pretty much outweighed all the viewer votes.

She is pretty much the wild card again on the show. With another big election coming up, the tea party may try to vote for her again to send some kind of message to support her mom's party, and not because Bristol is a better dancer than anyone else on.

It will be a shame if better dancers are booted off before her again.

I have resigned myself to the fact that Bristol will stay on longer than better dancers just because of her mom's fans. I just hope that the producers bring back the bottom two dance-off for the middle of the season (week 5-7). If they do, she'll go as long as she's in the bottom two.

I would have preferred Kyle but I'm OK with Sabrina being the final star. I remember being shocked when she was voted off. I think I was voting for Mel B.

I'm going to respectfully disagree. Peopy b might say that this is a dance competition, and they would only be partially correct. The judges scored based on dance. The viewers are supposed to vote for their "favorite". No one ever said that we had to use dance ability to choose who our favorite was. I don't always vote for the best dancer. I usually vote for the person that makes me laugh, the person who is clearly working their butt off but just hasn't quite had their moment yet, or the person who has shown himself or herself to be truly sweet and humble. I have voted for Carson, Mark Cuban, Cloris, and yes, even Bristol. I wouldn't think it smart to have the judges overrule. The fans of the show have said who they want to keep. You start telling them that in an essence, you don't care about their opinion and they will likely stop tuning in.

That's why I like the mid season dance-off. It is a combination of both a popularity contest and a talent contest. Many of the talent based reality shows have that kind of format.

Just make me hurl now. He's got to be the biggest IDIOT!! His facial expressions aren't appealing. And the glasses. Is that going to be his new accessory this year? Last year it was the hats, this year the glasses. He needs to just dance.

Not a single one of the other teams is doing anything goofy to draw attention to themselves. They are all doing the standard poses. If they were just standing there blowing on their smokin' guns, I wouldn't have any issue with the pose. But it's him wearing those stupid glasses, the over pukered lips and the eyebrows arched sky high that make it too much. Bristol looks just fine.

The only one's with pictures not posted are Kirstie/Mak and Sabrina/Louis. Wonder what's up with that.

I think Kirstie had been out of the country until recently.
