Hawt topics plus champagne = this… screaming, phones ringing, camera kicking, whispering in the background. OMG. freeze frame at 0:16. Brilliant.

I think it would be more of an issue if the dancers were any good. Neither of them were put through to the second round, even after dancing with women.
Their audition was horrific and as much as I wanted them to be fantastic (because there are AMAZING same sex ballroom couples out there) they really were not. Their technique was sloppy and they didn’t go out of their way to utilize what men can do as dancers.
Two men should be able to do stuff that a man and a woman dancing together cannot do because of the extra muscle, power, and strength. The routine was not choreographed in a way that showcased what either of them should be capable of being two men who are trained ballroom dancers.
Instead it made it seem as if they knew their abilities were not at a high enough level so they decided they needed a gimmick to garner more attention.
I don’t think Nigel should have made a derogatory comment because some of the most talented dancers in the history of the show have been gay (Blake, Nick, Travis, Danny, etc.) and clearly a large number of the people watching the show are gay…probably not wise to alienate those viewers.

I obviously had something to say about this issue – but watching this video I had a hard time focusing on the conversation…do you all have impossibly beautiful skin or what?

This episode was brilliant!
Studio Audience – hilarious
Donovan whispering in the background – hilarious
Phone Ringing – hilarious
But what really did it for me? Stage ONE of Kevin’s drunkness, when the talking with the fingers starts to creep out…

i love how you can see shards of the exploded balloon coming towards the camera @ .17-18 secs.

Allan… bless you for that fantastic compliment to the group- which I’ll pretend was meant for me as well as everyone else… even though it’s completely untrue. :)
This was, by far, the most fun episode I’ve been involved in thus far. Ha ha- that balloon popping was priceless.

I LOVE the whispering… so professional donovan ;) … i’m assuming it was patrick in your ear? haha jk.
I totally agree with Rich, Nigel is NOT going to be making too many of his- i’m sure- many homo friends happy with this one! While I do think he’s NOT homophobic and likely is great with his gay friends, it’s always interesting when issues like this come up and you can see how a person truly feels about people different from themselves. It was an in-the-moment comment, but I think often those are the most revealing, and do think less of him now.
