Battle of the Blades, Season 2, Episode 3: the good, the bad and the snuggly
We are tempted to begin this blog post “Dear Candace Cameron Bure” after the former Full House star and current wife of BOTB front-runner Val Bure tweeted last week’s “The Good, the Bad and the Snuggly” instalment. But enough about our ’80s television obsessions and on to the CanCon at hand.
We return to our regular “who should stay, who should go and who should get it on” assessment, but first, a couple of questions:
1. Did anyone understand the idea behind Val and Katia’s bizarre cup and straw props? (Candace, if you’re reading, feel free to explain.)
2. What was up with Johnny Weir’s toucan hairdo? (The American Olympian was in the audience and will perform on tonight’s results show.)
3. Why all the hideous pleather? Val’s shirt! Theo’s bodysuit! Even judge Sandra Bezic got in on the action, wearing a dress that Rihanna would have trouble pulling off.
Who should stay: Shae-Lynn and Patrice
They scored the highest marks of the competition thus far, and this time we’re in total agreement with the judges. The theme of the week was “Just Dance,” and Shae-Lynn and Patrice (who performed a beautiful on-ice foxtrot to Nat King Cole) seemed to be the only pair that got the memo. The graceful lifts, elegant glides and an overall feeling of cohesiveness prove that the previously untouchable Val and Katia may face some serious competition. (Sorry, Candace.)
Who should go: Violetta and P.J.
They started strong on week one, but since then the brawler turned TV host and his pixie-esque partner have been steadily declining. This could have something to do with P.J.’s shoulder, which has apparently been giving him a lot of trouble (the things you learn in a behind-the-scenes massage room segment!). But it’s not just him. This week, Violetta stumbled during a pretty basic footwork sequence, which should be grounds for dismissal given her figure skating pedigree.
Who should get it on: Kyoko and Kelly
Why? Because Kelly has got to loosen up, and perhaps some off-ice nookie would do the trick. Again, his staccato arm movements belonged in one of those painfully awkward Mentos commercials. He’s obviously a fan favourite, but we’re not sure we can handle another fist pump.

I totally agree on Kelly arm movements! It’s like watching your dad dance!!!
The good: Val & Kat…the bad: this week Jamie & Theo…Jamie seemed almost embarrassed that Canadians sailed them thru on votes when their mistake was so glaring.
The costumes were all horrible, but don’t mix up the costumes for the routines…face book groups agreed that Jamie & Theo were in the bottom two…judges agreed that Val & Kat were second from the top…get over yourselves.Simple because some is Canadian did make them the best!
Courtney………..Please believe that raised arms and pumped fists only come from winners! You also had a correct statement, He’s obviously a fan favorite! However, your other remark, which I do not believe you meant to be derogatory, was out of line. Kelly has a beautiful wife and 3 beautiful children.
Jamie and Theo stayed in because of performance, and because they are two of the most well known figure skater/hockey players there are in Canada. I felt the choreography for Val and Kat was lacking. I understand the cup and the straw thing… they are obviously at a club.. just listen to the music. I felt that PJ just wasn’t into it anymore, it was a good decision as to who left the show.
I am finding some of the “teasing” comments made towards Theo Fleury to be extremely immature and in poor taste. We are all aware that Theo has impending legal issues to deal with, and I know we all have the greatest respect for Theo We wish him courage and strength in dealing with these matters. However, a skating competition is hardly the venue where Theo’s difficulties need to be constantly brought up,,, or explained,,, nor should it be a venue where we need to listen to Theo being the brunt of junior high school tyes of teasing bullying behavior..
pj violetta george and annabelle are the best skaters there they rock the russians won but THEY BROKE THE TROPHY
