Len says it was a bit too "careful" and Bruno tells her she needs to go for it more. Wynonna tries to sneer/snarl seductively at Bruno and she looks like my cat that had one of his upper fangs pulled and now sometimes his lip doesn't close right over the bottom fang on that side. Carrie Ann thought she did a good job of giving it her all.
Scores: Carrie Ann: 6; Len: 6; Bruno: 6
Huh. I didn't that was that much better than D.L.
Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess: Foxtrot
Andy Dick talks about his drinking and drug use right up front, and tells us he's currently sober. He calls this the "biggest opportunity he's ever had." Good for him for realizing the chance he's getting to rehab his public image, but I think he might be exaggerating. And he's crying on Day 3. I'm worried for him already.
He's a little awkward, but he's got a good frame for dancing, slender and elegant. Bruno says it was like watching "Woody Allen do the Foxtrot" with "skittish charm." Bruno enjoyed it "in a very crazy way."
Carrie Ann says he "touched her" with that dance. Careful, Carrie Ann, if he's still on probation somewhere, that might violate it. Len says it had no fluidity.
Brooke asks if Andy's worried about the pressure of the show driving him back to drink. Andy calls her on it, saying, "Oh, you went there." Andy, it's not you, she's a woman that doesn't know how to read a room or interview at all.
Scores: Carrie Ann: 6; Len: 6; Bruno: 6
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff: Cha Cha Cha
Their introduction package begins with his 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. It still looks impressive. Jacoby explains that his dad left when he was only 2 (and we see a cute, cute, cute picture of baby Jacoby in a stroller). We meet Jacoby's mom, Emily London-Jones, and she's wearing this great tweed suit and tells us if Jacoby has any dance skills, he got them from her. And then there's a sweet clip of the two of them dancing in her dining room.
On the first day of rehearsal, Karina asks Jacoby about his knee surgery. He had to start rehearsal later than the other contestants. Karina's freaking out about the reduced rehearsal time.
They've got the Cha Cha Cha (to Flo Rida's "Good Feeling") and start the dance on a square platform at the top of the stage. It's exploding with fireworks and they've darkened the audience area and given everybody glow stick thingies and it's all so much.
It's a fun routine and Jacoby seems to be having fun and looks comfortable. He's got some good hip moves and a face that really connects with the audience.
Carrie Ann loves it and tells him, "You've got some moves." Jacoby is doubled over gasping for breath and Carrie Ann is afraid he's going to faint. She says the routine looked like a "medley of touchdown dances," but she's smiling as she says it, and points out that they only had one week to practice.
Len rips Jacoby's technique. I don't think there's any part of Jacoby's body he doesn't criticize. His mom is in the audience along with some men I assume are friends and family and she's booing Len's criticism. Jacoby responds with a joking, "I love you, too."
As Bruno says he thinks Jacoby could be the "screaming sex machine of Season 16" (and how long do we think Bruno worked on that line), Len rolls his eyes and blows a raspberry. Bruno does want him to work on his foot placement, as apparently Jacoby's pigeon-toed. That's been a problem for a lot of the former football players, hasn't it?
Jacoby is still sucking wind during the interview with Brooke, explaining that there's "no play in the NFL that lasts a minute and a half." Because Brooke still and always is terrible at this, she follows up with a question that Jacoby just answered.
Scores: Carrie Ann: 7, Len: 6, Bruno: 7
Nobody gets eliminated this week. Everybody will be back to perform a second dance next week and the votes and scores from both weeks will be combined to eliminate the first couple next week on March 26.
