Warning: the following text contains the spoiler to tonight’s Dancing with the Stars grand finale! Highlight the text if you’re OK reading it…

I’m embarrassed to admit that the first reality competition show I’ve gotten into is Dancing with the Stars — but I have to admit it to be able to then say that this is the most rigged piece of crap I could possibly imagine putting on television. I mean, nevermind that Kelly Monaco — who is pretty much a stripper out there — actually got to the finals, but then she got three tens (the only tens given in the entire competition) for her dance in which there were at least two obvious mistakes?!? And then they win it all?!?!? Total, complete horseshit, I tell ya’; they got their asses handed to them out there every night, and the finals were no different. But I guess the 50% of the votes that came from the viewers saw her breasts rather than her dancing. I guess that’s what I get for tuning into reality shows!


Unbelievable!!! My wife and I counted FOUR mistakes? Did the judges watch the same dance we did. Just about ruined the entire competition….

It didn’t matter anyway… The rules say a tie goes to the team with the higher viewer ranking, and they won the viewer ranking based on last week’s performance. This week’s dance was irrelevant.

The 10’s were BS though.

It was a total miscarriage of justice. The rigged, pathetic judging ruined it for me throughout. I was consistently annoyed that the judges never credited people for fulfilling the technical requirements of the dances being performed.

I think this proves that General Hospital fans have much more power than Seinfeld fans.
