Disney Night - It's the Wonderful World of Corporate Synergy! The nine celebrity and pro-dancer couples compete on the fifth week of the 2019 season. For the first time, Sleeping Beauty Castle will be featured in the show's opening number.
Sean was overscored and overpraised. Are they inflating his scores to justify his staying week after week?
No; I think they're giving him a "kind send-off". They already know the scores and have made their decision and don't want to look like ogres for beating him down just before getting rid of him.
(Not that it's not the right choice. I think he's funny and trying his very best, but he really does need to go home instead of better dancers)
I think they know he’s on his way out and I think they also really appreciate that unlike many of the political / news people that have done the show in the past he’s actually tried and showed some respect to the show.
