First Dance Opinion: Moose and Squirrel Must Dance! She is funny and beautiful. I look forward to seeing her evolve as a dancer.

2nd Dance Opinion: I think Paulina found her inner latina or at least her tourist to Havana...I really like this couple but fear that she could be one of the 1st to go based on voting blocks. She is not the best of the dancers, but I think she will continue to grow if given time in the competition.

I really like Paulina, she reminds me of a the "everyday" person who would go out and try to ballroom. We would be a bit awkward most of the time, moments of pizzazz, and most of all doing it for the fun and exercise of it all. Love her sense of humor and being as beautiful as she is... not a stuck up biatch. :animated_rotfl:

For personality, Paulina is my favorite. The girl cracked me up with that line last night about not finding her inner latina but "channeling an American tourist in Havana who had one mojito too many". Who knew how funny she was?
