Seriously, if this is the "personality" we are going to get in large doses from him throughout the season, then he is going to turn people off to him and Tinashe in a big big way.

Dial it back man, at least a few notches.

brandon is an amazing dancer with a great personality. his first season as a pro and he gets tinashe? damn. they are definitely gonna be a killer duo. if they really want to win, he really needs to bring it with the choreo and they need to win over everyone.

Evidently, tptb wants Brandon to do well on his season as pro to get someone with the caliber of Tinesha. She is basically younger janet jackson with her moves, very professional and intricate. She is like a mixture Nicole S. and Maya from seasons ago. She is going to slay and im sure Brandon is not going shortchange her with choreography and content. They already seem to have a great connection from the interviews and videos I have seen of them, translate to the dancing and to the audience then they can easily go far and maybe even win.

brandon said that he is trained in all styles and he wants to show that in his choreography. he is not gonna take away from the traditional stuff but he will push boundaries. he said that there is not a couple like him and tinashe. that makes me excited.

Im excited to, with derek and mark out dwts was in need of some serious change up with choreography and surprises. I think Brandon will bring new and fresh ideas. He is young and versatile, not just a ballroom brat.

I think that's what TPTB want to do. Slowly introduce new pros who will get a good following right away, so they can "retire" some of the old dogs, who probably, cost a pretty penny these days...

I don't know anything about this guy, but if they gave him a ringer in his first season he must have potential. I'm looking forward to seeing this couple.

He and Brittany Cherry won DWTS kid battle around 2007.  So he's been doing ballroom for awhile.  Like the other Utah ballroom dancers, he's also cross trained.  I'm excited to see what he and Tinashe can do.

He's THAT Brandon?  No wonder he's showing so much potential as a newbie -- I remember the Paso Doble that he and Brittany did on the kid battle ten years ago.  As I recall, they were only about 16 or so, but their Paso was so sophisticated and adult that it made my jaw drop -- and the judges', too!

Incidentally, here's that Paso Doble I was talking about:

And I was wrong about their ages.  They were only about 12 when they competed here.
