Jason Taylor earned a near-perfect score last night on Dancing With the Stars and has now emerged as the favorite to win it all.* I didn't watch any of last night's proceedings. I watched some college basketball game instead. But apparently, JT appeared to stumble sometime during his routine. However, the judges were blinded by his devastating good looks and all around awesomeness and gave him a 10,9,10 anyway (pretty much the same criteria I have for not wanting the Fins to trade JT away)**
Some fans of the show, however, are calling bullshit on all the Jason Taylor goodness and let their feelings be known on the DWTS blog:
connie: Get a grip. Youve got to be kidding. Jason and Edyta were terrible. What a disappointment in the judges. This show must be fixed. Jason looked really bad. The judges must be getting kickbacks. I'll never watch this show again. Crooks! You are all Crooks!
shamrick: carrie ann and bruno can give jason a 10 since he stumbled. that is not right. i have lost respect for them as judges. i also will not watch the other show they sponsor. they need to go or do their job. a stumble cannot justify a 10. everyone knows that.
Rita: Jason sucked!! The scoring was very unfair. It is ridiculous to give someone a 10 when they stumble and have bad posture.
ginger: oh,my...Jason was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!
So it appears that on one hand, some fans are beginning to get irritated and think that the judges are being too biased towards JT, which could end up costing him the competition. Yet on the other hand, JT keeps giving random women in America everywhere spontaneous orgasms.
That spells "Win" in my book every time.
