Broadcast legend sent home in first dance-off

OPINION:

The name of the game is Survivor. In this game, fire represents your life. If your fire is gone, so are you.

So, the question was, what really destroyed celebrity’s fire would be put out tonight?

It’s hard not to feel that this season’s cast of Dancing with the Stars should wear team bandanas instead of ballgows, and fight for a bag of rice instead of a Mirrorball.

It’s cutthroat and the goal of the game is one thing – survival.

But how do you survive in this show? We have not figured that out yet. It still feels a bit like Who’s Line is it Anyway? Where everything is made up, and the points do not matter.

Despite the threatening snooping, we continue with another night of dancing, challenges and someone being voted out of the island.

First we started with a 3-and-a-half minute jive marathon, in which the last man wins. Rhys Matthewson admitted he never lasted 3 and a half minutes on anything and we had a bit of a laugh.

But it was our girl Brodie Kane and the lovely Enrique Johns who grabbed the win in an epic way. This is one couple who do not have to worry about their fire going out tonight because that dance floor is still burning.

Then Judge Lance Savali took the stage and reminded us why he is the coolest man in New Zealand. It’s like the Pete Davidson effect; I did not understand it, but now will.

Next it was the turn of Elektra Shock and anyone who can do high stairs on six-inch heels gets nothing but praise from me.

Host Clinton Randell then declared that he was away to count the votes and our nerves were shot.

It was Newstalk ZB host Kerre Woodham and reality TV star Alex Vaz who were in the bottom two last night.

It was time for them to dance for survival and we had no idea who would take it out.

Would it be Vaz, with all his height and positive feedback from yesterday? Or was that all just a red herring? Surely it would not be Woodham who the judges could go all the way last night?

Reformed heartbreaker Vaz gave it his all with some fancy footwork and Woodham had a blast and showed us why she’s one of the most beloved media personalities in Aotearoa.

James Luck chose to save Vaz and Lance Savali chose to save Woodham.

This meant that the final decision lay in the hands of Chief Justice Camilla Sacre-Dallerup, who decided to say “the tribe has spoken” against Woodham.

Woodham went away in the classy and hilarious nature we learned from the host, asking producers to give Dancing with the Stars pro Jared Neame next season another shot with a “bright young thing” , so he could see even more of his. skills.

But Woodham made himself proud this season, showcasing just how grueling being on a show like this can be, but also having a bloody good time in the process. While we know her for her fast wit and unparalleled repertoire, it was the softer side of Woodham that we liked to see in this season of DWTS.

She beamed with pride at every mention of her charity, Starship, and spoke about her Dancing with the Stars family with such respect that you could not help but have a little FOMO that we were not a part of.

It was host Sharyn Casey who might have said it best when she told Woodham she was the very definition of a Wahine Toa, and we could not even say it anymore.
