Monica is now officially a 'former' Pro, and this was posted in that section. So, your thread might be moved there too. :)

I'm glad she's doing it, should be fun.

I can't believe Adam Carolla is doing it.

They're not teenagers who are desperate to be "cool".

I believe it's a show where celebrities pair up with professional dancers and then are judged by a panel or smth.

Well movement was not one of Monica's strong points on the tennis court, let's see how that translates to the dance floor:)

Kristi Yamaguchi should do well since ice skating and performing in front of big crowds is not that different from she will be doing.

If movement you mean footspeed then Monica wasn't the best at it but she had better footwork, those little adjustment steps before the shot. Anyways, I would be curious too how this would translate. It would be nice to see her.

Well...we don't know that yet. Hopefully she does well and not get voted out early in the round.

How is that embarassing? It's all for fun and I could be wrong but maybe the prize goes to a charity. Hollyfield did it one season and although you cringe before he danced it turned out to be fun and funny to watch especially people you would never think of dancing.

Yeah, whoever thought that Emmit Smith would be so good. He was a lot of fun to watch.

Embarassing for whom? The last 3 winners have been former or current atheletes, I am not saying Monica will win, but good for her and I hope she does well.

Thanks! I didn't know Seles was such a good dancer...We don't know it either. She may be one of the -- sometimes two -- "Class Clowns" of the contest. (Each season there's a contestant or two who really seems to be there for ... comic relief.) Seles *might* be that type of dancer....

Guess you have not seen her lately. She has been in fantastic shape for a while and looking very fine I might add. The men danced last night so the women will have their chance tonite(Tuesday).

I'd be very surprised if Kristi doesn't win the whole thing.

Kristi's my pick, too.

Men: Taylor and "Mario" look like the favorites to me. (Penn looks like the "class clown" of this batch. He can't dance.)

Women: We'll see tonight.

(I'd have to move out of the house if I told my wife I didn't want to watch this dancing show. Sheesh!)

I could not agree with you more. I think she has really grown into a stunningly beautiful person.

Just saw Monica's performance and she didn't do too well, she tried her best though.

Bless her heart. :-?

She got 15 out of 30. :(

She looks very uncomfortable and stiff. She missed a *bunch* of her marks. She really doesn't have a lot of grace. The 15 was a "mercy" score, IMO.

I think she will be one of the 1st to go home, along with that loud radio personality. :(

Is this just coming on for you?

Kristi Yamaguchi's was the best of the night with all 9's.

Yes. I'm on MDT. (NY is 2 hours ahead of us.)

If I had to pick today, I'd have Mario and Kristi in the Final.

Monica looked great, but got the worst women's score of the night. She seemed incredibly stiff and nervous.

Priscilla Presley who seemed to dance horribly got great marks. It seems she will be the "Marie Osmond" of this season (the stiff they carry through the show because she brings in viewers.)
