Thank you to everyone who voted for us! We live to see another week! I’m so excited. It was nice to be the first one to be called safe. You can relax for the rest of the night, but you’re still tense wondering who is going to be leaving.
I’m really sad Steve Guttenberg is leaving. It’s never easy to see anyone leave and Steve, obviously, is so well-loved with all of us. He was such a positive person to have around. He loved being here. He was enjoying every minute of it and he brought it all into perspective for us as far as, “Hey, this isn’t a competition. We’re also here to enjoy it and have an experience.” We’re all going to really miss him.
I loved Steve’s “mango” with Jonathan Roberts. That was hilarious! It was great of them to go out there and joke poke fun at themselves. They’re both great sports. I don’t know if Steve wants that to be his last dance though… or maybe he does!
How many of you were fooled by our April Fools' Day hobby skit? Some people have said they really believed it at first! It was really fun to shoot. The competitive hot dog eating was Mark’s idea — leave it to my partner to do a humiliating thing to me! I couldn’t really eat all the hot dogs so I had a garbage bag full of chewed up hot dogs! I actually do like hot dogs — but not 18 of them at once!
Next week we’ll do the paso doble. It’s another intense, passionate dance and I’m ready to bring out the emotion the judges are looking for!
See you next week! Thanks again for your support!
