Well crap, I thought she was preggers in the old fashioned sense, then I got to the part about the surrogate. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it would have been so much more impactful to the show if she were actually carrying the baby. Honestly, no disrespect to the woman intended, but I think she will be the first or second one gone. She's not that good, and she is a relatively unknown person to most people. Those folks don't usually stick around long.

Wow she made it through another week. Nothing personal but she should have been the one leaving. She made it to the Finale.

Nothing surprises me anymore. If Marie Osmond could make it to the finale, anyone could.

I was very surprised she made it to the semi-final over Mario, who is a much better dancer. Some of the stars who agree to be on DWTS are not necessarily well-known to the audience for this show, but even so, most of the decisions are pretty rational anyway. But just like seeing Marie Osmond make it last year, I feel Marissa is not good enough for the semis in this group.

I love Tony but glad that Marissa was the one eliminated. I was so afraid that the fans would mess up on this one and get rid of one of the stronger dancers.
