Poor Ralph, it doesn't matter how good a dancer you end up being, you don't stand a chance since you have been partnered with the biggest b**ch on the show, Karina Smirnoff. Every year we watch her be a bad sport when things don't go her way. She is a really good dancer with a fantastic body and pretty face, but her attitude makes her UGLY!

I have been watching the show for a long time. I am so sick of the no talent, no dancers and people who just out and out DO NOT NEED to be on the show ever. Bristol Palin, Kate G., Jerry Springer, the astronaut(?), Cloris L. to name a few. Now they are bringing Kendra and Wendy Williams to next season. I am soooo disappointed in TPTB in bringing them especially after all those way better dancers were eliminated before B.P. Keep this crap up with who you are bringing and the rigging of the eliminations(had problems voting while BP was on the show almost every week). You are going to lose more and more viewers all the time. Kendra, why should we watch her reality show let alone her on DWTS, all she did was be a piece of azz for Hef and was not even skilled enough to be the #1. Wendy Williams might have been popular where ever she was before turning up with a talk show on some of my tv stations, but she is annoying and fake. Everything from the hair to the uniboob. She also looks like a DRAG QUEEN! These are not the type of dancers I and others like me are tuning in to watch. Sugar Ray, Ralph, great picks! Stop the BS, especially the Palin type crap that has been pulled.

Chris Jerico, Ralf Machiao, Sugar Ray and Hines Ward, I just may tune in and watch a couple episodes, and I hate dancing with the stars.

Do you have eyes?    

I was not excited til they announced Hines Ward. I predict Kendra's early exit, women won't vote for this porn reality star.
