MOST VALUABLE GEM (MVG) OF THE WEEK:
“Victor got caught up in the moment and kissed Jacoby!” —Lorie, endorsed by kellen, VictorsHot!!, orville1970, Lily, SpeechTeacher89, Peaceblove, Siobhan McNally, Anthony, Gemma K, Amber20221, Sugar, MLM, Matilda, Argem, TequilaSunrise, Kevin M. Kawa, karinchu
“Kellie and Derek did a really nice dance, and everyone was appreciating the beautiful moment…until they switched to the CelebAquarium and suddenly Victor jumped up and freaking BARKED or something in Jacobi’s ear. What the hell, dude?” —Cindy, endorsed by Wiltasaurus
“Was that a beer can in Sean and Peta’s rehearsal studio? Whatever it takes, right?” —kellen
“At the very beginning of Sean/Peta’s dance as Peta appeared, for a moment I thought she was some sort of spider rising up out of the smoke because her arms were not in the spotlight.” —gemtastic15, endorsed by Wiltasaurus
“Planet Mirrorballus looks like a giant Lite Brite with all of the lights onstage for Sean and Peta’s dance.” —Colleen
“Ooh, endorsed. Lite Brite, or Mirrorballus’ particular species of fat, stationary fireflies. Probably stationary because Smokey made them comatose, but.” —Wiltasaurus
“The true first sign that spring has arrived: Len’s lavender and yellow tie (and pocket square).” —kellen, endorsed by Bvonly2001, Wiltasaurus
“WHOA, LOOK AT THAT WOMAN’S EARRINGS.” —Cindy
“Sara Gilbert (Darlene from Roseanne) twin behind Carrie Ann.” —Liz, endorsed by HTTR
“Victor reminds me a little bit of Aladdin in those pants. He’s even got the storyline to go with it! He just mentioned how he sometimes didn’t have enough to eat…’Riff raff, street rat!'” —Amy in KC, endorsed by duranmom
“I endorse this, and wonder if Fringe Fairy will be spending an entire afternoon photoshopping Disney characters onto screengrabs. If so, then I feel reprehensible for saying that Lindsay could have been a good candidate for Jafar’s daughter or something due to her dark costume. Too much? Probably. But I can’t help wallowing in the nostalgia.” —Wiltasaurus
