It seems like everyone's true feelings are finally coming out, and it's not lookin' good for the judges!
In the last episode, Maks went off when the judges continued to–what he feels–berate the dancers more so than their job requires (watch above).
And apparently he isn't the only one who feels that way!
Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer explain:
Lacey: A lot of us wish we would say stuff and we never do — we're afraid of it. Regardless of what Maks said, and if he hurt people's feelings, he had the courage to stand up for him and his partner, and I think that is amazing. It's hard to hear your friend bullied by three people who we're supposed to respect. It's unnecessary and rude, especially with all the bullying going on in the world. I'm not going to speak poorly of the [judges'] profession or what they have done in their careers, but they have no business saying the things that they do.
Chaz: It's a bit insulting. One judge in particular week after week paints me as this… I don't know… chubby, cuddly little Ewok, little penguin. That's not about my dancing. If you want to talk to me about my dancing and how I can improve, I have no problem with that. That would be fine!
Interesting thoughts here! We wonder if any of the other contestants have the balls to stand up and speak their mind too — pro or con!
What about U? Do U think Maks stepped out of line or do the judges really dig a little too deep??
