Kirstie Alley – Last Stand on DWTS Season 12
This week may very well be Kirstie Alley’s last stand on Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars. Last week she was tied with Romeo for the lowest score, but managed to survive. This week will really test her as she must learn two different dances the Argentine Tango and the salsa.
Kirstie Alley has shown she can dance. She started of this season of DWTS very strongly and in the first few weeks showed herself as being a contender even overcoming some crazy mishaps including a fall and a lost shoe. However, the last few weeks have not been nearly as kind to her. She has consistently been at or near the bottom of the scoreboard and was clearly surviving on her popularity alone.
What might be Kirstie Alley’s worst enemy is her age and physical condition. She clearly has the drive and desire to succeed, but her body seems to be slowing down and when you watch the rehearsal footage she seems to be worn out. She has had a great run on DWTS and has done infinitely better than most people would have thought she would do, but it seems that her gas tank is starting to run low. Add in the fact that most of the dancers left are very strong and she has large uphill battle to fight if she is going to stay on the show much longer. I could see her surviving this week if Romeo doesn’t do well. If those two go head to head at the bottom of the scoreboard her popularity could keep her around. Beyond that she will have to dig deep and really pull out a great dance if she wants to compete with the better dancers.
Tune in tonight at 8PM on ABC to see if Kirstie Alley’s days are really numbered on Dancing With The Stars or if she has another great performance in her.
