Bristol and Mark will dance the Paso Doble, which is a lively dance modeled after the drama of the Spanish bullfight. It will look something like this –
and then, they will dance the Slow Waltz –
Both of these dances should not be a challenge for Bristol who grasps the technique of the dances very quickly and retains the steps in her mind. We will pray that she will continue get into the character of these dances and wow the audiences and the judges tonight.
Bristol and Mark are by far the most deserving of the the 4 couples competing tonight because Bristol started with nothing but sheer will to try something completely new to her. Her 3 competitors are all performers and entertainers and dancers and singers and actors, you name it, they have done it.
Brandy is a singer and actor. She had the leading role in Cinderella and she danced in that movie. Sweet Kyle is an actor. Drama queen Jennifer is an actor who attended The Dalton School in New York City, where she studied dance as a child. Her parents are actors and choreographers. Now, do you see why Bristol is the least likely to be the winner in the eyes of the ‘Hollywood types’?
Bristol came to the show with determination and nerves of steel just like her mother. We can be proud of our vote for her because she is the real deal.
When asked, What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you’re going to win? She answered:
“I’ll be starting from square one. I don’t have any formal dance skills so I think the biggest challenge will be training my feet to follow my head. There’s no doubt this will be tough, but I thrive on the challenge, expanding my boundaries and trying new things.”
God be with you, Bristol and Mark!
