Does anyone watch the Showtime show Gigolos? Is there a fandom for this show? Is anyone else obsessed w/ Vin the way I am? All of the gigolos on this show are so out there and self obsessed and oblivious and Vin is super self aware and super snarky and I feel like he’s so representative of what I’m feeling/thinking when watching this show.
Since I guess you watch the show, what do you think of Meryl and Charlie’s chances? And the partner switch thing? :)
I do in fact still watch this show for some reason. I didn’t really watch the Olympics, so I don’t really know much about Meryl and Charlie. But from a partner perspective, Meryl is going to get a LOT of facetime and a LOT of talk - Maks is probably the most infamous and talked about professional in DWTS history. He’s incredibly entertaining and incredibly talented but a massive hot head, loves to break the judges rules (and get his partner penalized score wise because of it), etc. But, he’s definitely one of the most powerful professionals on this show - he’s a demanding presence. I definitely recommend looking up some of his old routines (specifically, ones with Mel B from the Spice Girls - they were amaaaazing together. Also, him and Kirstie Alley).
Can’t speak much for Charlie/Sharna because Sharna is still relatively new - I think this is only her third season I believe. She was partnered with Andy Dick 2 seasons ago and actually took him fairly far in the competition.
I’m SO thrown off by the partner switch thing. They’ve had to do this in the past due to pros getting injured and it’s kind of thrown things off a bit, at least for me - I remember someone from Iron Chef having to dance with a diff partner on a live show (his partner had the flu) and it was just….weird. But, on the other side of it, the last few years they’ve started doing group routines with a star and two professionals (their set partner and an eliminated pro) and those have been fairly entertaining. I think this is definitely a ploy to try to get people to tune in (ratings have been dropping, but it’ll be interesting, at least!
just in case people don’t know, the composer of frozen is bobby lopez, a renowned filipino-american songwriter, and if he wins best original song tonight then he will be the first man of colour in history to win an emmy, grammy, oscar, and tony
Aww I didn’t know Bobby Lopez was the composer for Frozen! You get that EGOT, girl.
Sources tell Variety that while no deal is done yet, the “Girls” actor is close to signing on to play the villain in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Exact details are unknown, but the character is said to be in the vein of iconic “Star Wars” villain Darth Vader.
I read that as “Adam Devine” and got really excited. :(
