“I would vote for Aly if she brought out McKayla Maroney for her freestyle, simply so that she could stand in the corner and give Mark her not impressed face.” —BlueEyes2204
“Aly and Mark’s freestyle is brought to you by Ke$ha.” —kellen, endorsed by duranmom, orville1970, Wiltasaurus
“Between the costumes, the stripper pole, and the music, I felt like it was like Mark’s Bollywood style mash-up of Tron and Showgirls.” —Jillibeans
“It looks like he raided Bruno’s weekend loungewear.” —FrigidDiva, endorsed by Jem H, Wiltasaurus
“Mark is literally peacocking this time with his blue, green, and gold sparkly outfit.” —Amy in KC
“Mark’s makeup is like a mini Phantom of the Opera mask.” —Colleen, endorsed by gemtastic15, Wiltasaurus
“Kym’s glamour shot in the opening dance. Fierce!” —kellen, endorsed by Fringe Fairy
“Not so hidden gem: Len is very pleased with himself over learning and performing Jacoby’s signature moves. If only Jacoby had taught him how to jump over Karina.” —Colleen, endorsed by duranmom, DonnaW
“I’m sorry but every time I hear ‘supersize’ freestyle, I think of one of the decoys (because they would, not one of Our Pros) working the drive-thru window asking me ‘Would you like fries with that McDouble?’ I think Fringe Fairy had a hidden gem of this last season — the troupe dancing with a giant Coke and fry carton I believe.” —Colleen, endorsed by Fridgedancer, duranmom, Amy in KC, Anthony
“Is that why Derek was dressed like a hamburger and one of the other dancers was dressed in a French Fry costume during one of the pre-ad breakaway scenes?” —JoMarch
