We have a gigantic TV and a high-def channel package, so we can choose to watch a regular version or an HD version when shows are broadcast in both.
Dancing With the Stars is broadcast in HD. And I'm watching it.
That I'm watching it is a little weird in itself, but it's not why I'm writing. The weird thing is that I discovered that high-def TV doesn't add 10 lbs the way regular TV does. We were watching Paulina Porizkova's performance on regular TV, and Nick came in and switched over to the HD version. Paulina went from looking positively chubby to the svelte supermodel she is. Nick and I both noticed it and did a double-take.
I think I'm voting for Leeza Gibbons to be the first eliminated, not because I don't like her (though her Goddess Party montage was certainly memorable) but because I think I like everyone (either the celebs or their perky pro-dance partners) a little better. Leeza and her guy are just a bit bland.
