MMFATA: Bonus Round!...

Having been at my mother's house for the weekend, I have been relegated to watching only channels 4, 5, 7, 9, or 11 due to the technological stone age in which she lives. Tonight, therefore, brought us an hour and a half of Dancing with the Stars-- a show I have never been able to bring myself to watch, in part due to the crappy covers of once-popular hits. After napping during the first chunk of it, however, I awoke from a hazy stupor to reveal the one thing that would have had me watching all of this time: a bonafide hottie in the form of contestant Chuck Wicks.

Okay, so to be completely honest, my friends aren't talking about him. As far as I can tell, no one is currently talking about him. After all, when his contestantcy (is that even a word??) was announced, there was a minor uproar regarding his real-life romance with dancing partner (and also sometimes country singer) Julianne Hough, asking if it is even fair that he compete with that pre-existing advantage...but that "controversy" died down pretty quickly upon news of contestant after contestant dropping out due to injuries. Who knew that in the days of televised football and cop dramas with both stunt combat and stunt driving, a dancing show could be the most dangerous thing on TV?? Anyway, the point is that there may be nothing overtly threatening about Wicks, but that doesn't automatically make him boring or therefore not worthy of headlines or photo spreads. With Clint Black refusing to take off his stupid big black hat on NBC's current celeb-reality show, Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, Wicks is a refreshing change in the country music genre!

Where is my proof? Just see below!
