Ralph Macchio: Dancing With The Stars 2011 Trickery

I’m still not 100% sure if the Dancing with the Stars 2011 producers were messing with us when it came to Ralph Macchio last week or if they were just as shocked as the rest of us. Did they really know he could pull that off and purposely edit his rehearsal footage to look bad, or were they genuinely shocked as well?

During the DWTS week 1 rehearsals Ralph Macchio seemed to be a little tired, a little out of synch and a little behind. He, like all of the contestants early on, struggled to get the steps down and even joked that while his face his young his body is not and he was wore out. Then he hit the dance floor and he and partner Karina Smirnoff tore it up. Their Foxtrot was high energy, on point and brought the crowd to their feet. It also sent them home with a 24 – the highest score of the week.

Can Ralph Macchio pick up where he left off this week? With that stellar performance last week he is no longer a dark horse or an unknown quantity, he now has to be considered one of the favorites to win this thing. If he can continue to improve and perform as he did last week he has a real shot. He has everything you need to win the Dancing With The Stars competition: the clear ability to execute the dances, the love of the public (who doesn’t love the Karate Kid?) and a partner who will push him to get better.  I know we are just one week in, but it won’t shock me to see him go deep into the competition and challenge for the mirror ball trophy.

You can watch live tonight at 8PM on ABC to see Ralph Macchio and his fellow dancers do their second dances of the season on Dancing with the Stars.
