Judges Comments: Len: “Loads of energy, all the way home.” Julianne: “Oh my gosh, you are both so innovative. You need to work on figuring out your height difference though.” Bruno: “It was like twinkle toes on the field of dreams. The content was excellent, but tighten up on your hold next time.” Carrie Ann: “I agree with Bruno, it was fantastic, not as good as last week. You have a new glow but do watch your chin, bring it down.”

Judges Comments: Bruno: “The all American girl, wholesome like apple pie. I loved the nostalgic look, very very well played. When you throw your free hand, retrieve it faster.” Carrie Ann: “I am actually torn up about this dance, I think we lost a little something that makes you so spectacular. It was too safe and agree with Bruno about your arms.” Len: “Better to be safe than sorry, I liked the mix. I liked the whip on the turns, I liked the dance very much. Maybe it needed a tad more flare.” Julianne: “I get the frustration, it is exhausting and tiring, but don’t forget who you are. You did an awesome job, agree about your arms. Overall you are so awesome.”

In the last few weeks you have improved.” Bruno: “You two are bad ass hot and cool at the same time.”
