Jeanine Wins! But I Still Feel Lost.

No shocker here. As I predicted, Jeanine Mason took home the title of "America's Favorite Dancer" last night. Whatever that means. I know. I know. I sound like a negative nelly. (Well now I'm just sounding like an 80-year-old woman.) But come on people. Was this really a surprise given Jeanine's infectious smile? Her perfect bouncy curls? And her heart-melting personality? (Okay. Now I just sound like a lesbian.) But Jeanine really was a clear favorite (to me at least mid-season) considering her competitors were ... well, um, what's the word I'm looking for here, ... blah? Yeah. Blah will do.

Or, is it because of the complete void of personality in this year's contestants? (Ade anyone?) Now I'm going to spring a guess and say that Jeanine is the sole dancer left leaping. She is the only one who sprouts any semblance of likability, after all. Ah well guys ... we tried.
