SCD 5: Garth Weighs Out (Pics Added!)

Written by TVSA Team from the blog Strictly Come Dancing 5 on 21 Nov 2008

The cast of Strictly Come Dancing 5 pulled out all the stops to deliver a nail biting quarter-final episode last night (20 November 2008), which saw ex-Gladiator Garth Collins becoming an ex-dancer after a head-to head with 5FM's Anele Mdoda.

This was the first occasion where the final five were expected to bring two flawless attempts to the dance floor, from a selection of styles chosen from the Latin and Ballroom genres.

When the judges' scores and viewer votes were tallied, the two couples who failed to impress the judges also failed to make an impression on the voting public.

After the dance-off, the judges chose to keep the following of the two celebs in the competition:

Tyrone Watkins: Anele (for her natural rhythm)
Salome Sechele: Anele (for her discipline and timing)
Dave Campbell: Anele (for understanding exactly what is expected in this competition)

Head judge Lillian Phororo did not have to excercise her deciding vote; immediately eliminating Garth and his dance partner Hayley Bennett from the competition.

As usual, when judges' scores and viewer votes were tallied, the two couples with the lowest combined scores had to perform their routines again during a dance-off.

The judges' scores (before viewer votes were added) were as follows:

Tessa van Duuren & Grant Esterhuizen
First Dance: 37, Second Dance: 37 (Total: 74)

Rob van Vuuren & Mary Martin
First Dance: 30, Second Dance: 32 (Total: 62)

Cindy Nell & Jonathan Broadway
First Dance: 29, Second Dance: 30 (Total: 59)

Garth Collins & Hayley Bennett
First Dance: 26, Second Dance: 25 (Total: 51)

Anele Mdoda & Brandon Eilers Le Riche
First Dance: 24, Second Dance: 26 (Total: 50)

Garth and Hayley brought a Cha Cha and Rumba to the floor.

When commenting about the first dance, judges agreed that although there had been a vast improvement in his skill, he was still lacking technical refinement, although the couple did manage to capture the fire the style prescribes.

As always, there was consensus that the couple's extravagant and over-the-top outfits was a ploy to draw attention away from their shortcomings.

Their 2nd attempt with the Rumba left the judges ice cold.

Tessa van Duuren's Rumba with partner Grant Esterhuizen got the season's highest score to date – 37 out of a possible 40. Even the judges applauded.

Their confidence and victorious attitude remained during the Waltz, equalling the Rumba's score. With the trophy in sight, Tyrone suggested they dig deep to rekindle the "sizzle".

Rob van Vuuren and Mary Martin's dedication to winning was again illustrated by their Cha Cha, which was fun and playful and enjoyed by all the judges - except for Tyrone who got jaws dropping when he described it as "spastic".

Their Rumba did manage to embody the passionate Latin-lover the style is supposed to depict in a delicate, sensitive and intense dance to Kelly Clarkson's "Because of You". Lilian was in tears.

Judging from the audience reaction to Rob's efforts, we can probably expect to see him in the final.

During Season 2 of the show, Tamara Dey dramatically injured a knee ligament while performing with dance partner Brandon Eilers Le Riche.

This year Brandon once again chose Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life" for his Rumba with current partner, Anele. And once again the seemingly jinxed track accompanied her falling flat on her face.

Judges applauded her courage and professional conduct when she got up to "let the show go on", but also found her paces bland.

Dressed in a creamy dreamy gown for her second dance, the Waltz, she redeemed herself.

Cindy Nell and partner Jonathan Broadway chose a convincing Waltz for their first dance.

Their second was a delightful Quickstep and the judges loved it... except for Tyrone who thought she "will have to pull a rabbit out of a hat if she wants to see the final".

Sandy Ngema tried to get Cindy's opinion about the judges' comment, but the beauty queen opportunistically chose to rather punt her new slimming salon.

The heat is on for next week's episode - the producers also hinted at a surprise twist to the proceedings. The Tango, Paso Doble, Jive and Foxtrot are the options for the dancers, and they will have to do the two they haven't yet attempted during the series.

Gang of Instrumentals will be the show's special guest act.

Oh yah Cande, its just that i thot she had so many flops izolo and even if Garth eqinile i thot Anele was supposed to leave. But what is this twist, dont you think they'll eliminate 1 and have 3 couples in the final?

mjj
21 Nov 2008 08:30

just a question reagrding Cindy's score - are they a true reflection of what happened last night? Sorry i didn;t watch......

The reason i'm asking is because she started slow..... and if i remember well in the first 3 episode she did not get good scores.....

ps: that girl is beautiful

Is it possible for strictly come dancing to strictly play the original soundtrack because I can sing better then the 2 singers they have.

And they are doing a great injustice to the dancers timing should not only be the dancing the music plays a crucial role in dancing.Thats is where timing , rhythm and all the elements for a great dance comes from.

"Rob & Mary you guys rock!!!!!!!"

"Grant jy represent ons coloureds my ou jy is a force to be reckoned with. "Daai chick se sommer you make her feel like a natural woman, jy is mos n menneer boet"

Ek wonner wat se jou wifey he he he he

But Garth looked so hot in that uniform bathong: LMAO Belz, you clearly luvvv Garth...you've been memezing his hotness since from day one....Yeah, he's got a great physic..the tight asss and all...

Oh yah Cande, its just that i thot she had so many flops izolo and even if Garth eqinile i thot Anele was supposed to leave: Ke laka leo...I didn't understand how they could score her (1st dance) 24 after she fell and all and they give Garth 26!! Even in her second dance she was just stumbling all over...haaaii suka, not fair...

just a question reagrding Cindy's score - are they a true reflection of what happened last night? Sorry i didn;t watch...... Yep!! she looked and danced like a princess...she definitely killed that waltz dance...

hahahahh that's a good one, I can't believe I keep missing the show, but as of next week, I'll try and be at home to watch.

JUDGES are too hard on Rob & Mary and they are exegarrating Tessa & Grant...37 for each dance???
That's exactly how I feel, Tessa's dancing is being over exaggerated, but ke it's fine, we will make sure Rob & Mary wins with our votes. Tessa can atleast be no.2, coz I don't deny the fact that she is also good.

U & me both Cyris, I also wish they could just leave the singing to the real artists, coz when Nonhlanhla sings, i unserstand wexactly why she is an unknown nobody in the music industry..........she is BADDDDDDDDDD, absolutely terrible!!!!

In my mind, there is no doubt that Tessa dances the best.  I think her scores are right - she does not have the "popularity / celebrity factor" of the rest of the folks on stage, so she is working double hard to win - and guess what?  It shows -  every time she walks out on that floor.

Rob can, and has, danced much better.  It looks like he is distracted, while Tessa is all focus.  He does not seem to be as enthusiastic as he was - although ons can understand he is probably getting tired.

What's up with punting a slimming club ?   Nah Cindy!!!! I expected much more professionalism than that.  That was a cheap shot - which I think she can hardly afford at this time.  She more than anyone will need votes to win.

Anele, what i can say...  such a personality !!  She has surprised everyone, I'm sure.  Consummate professional, knowing that she is not the best dancer carries herself with such PAZZAZ !!  Incredible.  She has rhythm in her soul...  It's a beautiful thing to see.

But I'm sure going to miss Garth, incredible hulk of a gentleman.  Of all the contestants he really surprised me the most.  Well done!!

'til later !

Oh geez I missed it. Love Anele, and big ups on the You Tube comment. Pitty her blogs have not really earned her a loyal fanbase, otherwise we'd even be filling our facebook statuses with her number.

Phela remember Tessa is doing nothing else but dancing at the moment, so obvously she's gonna be more focused, the Rob still works & dances.

"Grant jy represent ons coloureds my ou jy is a force to be reckoned with. "Daai chick se sommer you make her feel like a natural woman, jy is mos n menneer boet"Ek wonner wat se jou wifey he he he he (CYRIS)

(LMAO)  I (the wifey) am over the moon with the results of last night, I cannot tell U how HAPPY I am, cos all the time that Grant is Sacrificing with our little girl & I is well worth it. Tessa is looking better & better every time I see her dance & it's DEFINITELY showing with the judges scores!

Tessa is working very hard IF NOT the hardest out of all these CELEBS, DON'T GET ME WRONG, I'm not saying everyone else is not working HARD but remember she's UNKNOWN & for her to get any votes from the viewers she has to really work at it. Do U ever see her being PROMOTED even if she wins in the weekly shows??? NO!!! Everyone else get lots of AIR PLAY, PUBLICITY & all that jazz. So she DESERVES the scores she received from the judges. & Hopefully, bloggers, viewers, friends & family alike also see that she's working hard & will start voting for her. 

I must also say i'm gonna miss Garth's tight BOOTY as well, He & Hayley always had a GOOD SHOW for us & made it interesting. Anele & Brendon have this WONDERFUL energy they bring to the floor every week without fail & I must say I've found such a HUGE liking in her, she gets onto that floor & she DOES IT! I LUV IT! I think I scream almost as loud for her as what I scream for Tess.

Rob & Mary are brilliant & I hope ((wink wink)), they go through to the Finale with Tessa & Grant, BUT HEY Look out for Cindy & Jonathan!

MY LOYALTY, I MUST DECLARE, LIES WITH TESS & HUBBY THO! So die res van julle moenie jela nie vang tips! Peace Out!

It's a given that ur hubby will be in the finals, but i must say I really hope it's Mary whp wins at the end, she has such dedication in her work and Rob is just a fantastic partner for her.

Tessa is working very hard IF NOT the hardest out of all these CELEBS
As I said, that's coz all she does is dance, dance dance, so obviously it's gonna show!!!!!

21 Nov 2008 10:25

21 Nov 2008 10:26

O BTW, Tessa is not doing JUST the  dancing, she's got Horses (stables) that she looks after. Her own as well as other people's horses & she's getting paid for it so that QUALIFIES as a job doncha think?! Horses (animals) I would think are much harder to work with than people, cos people's moods & attitudes U can see animals on the other hand is not that easy, so please people cut her some slack.

And so finally the Big GARTHS  picture on TVSA has gone Grey- Must admit, Mr MuscleMan/Universe/Bum or Captain of Team 10 did BLOODY well to survive 8 weeks of SCD

I mean when you look at the list of ppl that proceeded him, you wonder how he did. Its simple really, all you need is a talented Hayley and the will to expose yourself in tights and circus clothing to over 2 million + ppl and be judged on your performence.

Garths journey on the show has been extremely emotional and yesterday after the show at News Café, I saw a man who had congoured the world even though he bowed out of the competition early.   Well done BIG GENTLE GIANT, you’re an inspiration!!!!!!!

I had to the honor of being a guest on SCD last night and saw the show from a totally different angle. For one, I am was glad I was sitting in the audience and not having to stand in the side wings of the stage. I had no tension and my stomach was not in knots nor did my feet hurt of constant abuse doing the ‘Sliding Door or coco-rutchers” maneuvers I had to do when I was till in the show. More importantly I did not have to fake a smile for the camera hiding the fear on my face.

1st up was Garth and Harley doing the Cha –Cha. I knew that this week would be a huge challenge for the big guy bcos when it comes to Latin Dances, Garth is as stiff as the Statue of Liberty. Brother man started of with sizzling act but ended up grilling his hands courtesy of the special effects gone wrong, fact that not many ppl picked up on the matter, shows that Garth is a true actor, he danced through the burn pain and impressed Lillian. In his 2nd Dance, Garth played TOM CRUISE in TOP GUN. Certainly looked the part but dam those pants and top were extremely too tight!!!! To me it seemed as though Garth decided to employ some gym warm up exercises instead of dancing. He did a number of Lunges and even squats while the adorable Hayley who’s boyfriend was called a “Moffie” by Ian just before the start of the show, did her thing! Part of me was kicking myself and wondering how could I let Garth of all ppl beat me in SCD, but as I mentioned before, knowledge and experience goes a long way, and that’s the trump card Garth had in Hayley.

Next up was Tessa and Grant – What a winning combination. The duo simply rocked. Horse lady looked dangerously beautiful and certainly channeled all her energy to the winning flag. They scored the highest for the night and was this season first couple to score a 10. They’re Rumba was by far my favorite dance for the night. Quitting her job to do Strictly Come Dancing has certainly paid off and I can’t wait to see her lift the SCD trophy in two weeks time. Watching her dance is simply beautiful, to me, she is at her happiest when she is on the dance floor. Her performance was so good, Dave almost hard a heart attack from excitement.

Twakkie and Mary had a speed wabble of note in the first dance. I think the couple are in their burnout stage and need to really pull up their socks if they want to win. Funny man Rob seemed rather disturbed in the rehearsals and was not hi usual self. I hope he finds his earlier form or else he will he will end up being the 1st looser. Rob peaked too soon, and now he is letting it slip away. COME ON TWAKKIE – BRING IT ON!!!!!! They re 2nd dance THE RUMBA brought a genuine tear to Lillian,

Anele and Sweeney Todd - These two tried to modernize a Matrix maneuver but fell flat on their arse. I don’t even think Anele knew what was going on until she hit the deck, she was simply a passenger without a seatbelt in an accident. But like the pro she is, she got up and continued even though dazed and confused. Brandon needs to be clubbed in the head for not even providing a proper landing pad for her! Their 2nd dance w

Hey there Taury *jumping up & down like a lunatic*, it's o good to see u and it's so like u to write an article within an article like that. 

Well done BIG GENTLE GIANT, you’re an inspiration!!!!!!!
That is so true, Garth has such a cool personality, I wish Anele or Cindy left instead of him.

Quitting her job to do Strictly Come Dancing has certainly paid off and I can’t wait to see her lift the SCD trophy in two weeks time. 
It shows in her dancing.

Anele and Sweeney Todd - These two tried to modernize a Matrix maneuver but fell flat on their arse. I don’t even think Anele knew what was going on until she hit the deck, she was simply a passenger without a seatbelt in an accident.

THE BIG GENTLE GIANT IS BACK!!!!! 

Walter Gelderblom sent a message to the members of STRICTLY COME DANCING 5 (SABC 2, South Africa).

--------------------
Subject: COMPUTER GLITCH SEES WRONG SCD COUPLE ELIMINATED...

The producers of SABC 2’s Strictly Come Dancing have just confirmed that an electronic calculation error during last night’s live show (20 November 2008) resulted in the wrong couple (Garth Collins & Hayley Bennett) being eliminated from the show. This is the first time in the show’s history that such an error has occurred.

Collins & Bennett were pitted erroneously against 5FM’s Anele Mdoda and partner Brandon Eilers Le Riche in the dreaded dance-off. Tessa van Duuren and Grant Esterhuizen is the couple that should’ve been in the dance-off against Anele & Brandon.

As the end credits rolled, producers discovered the error with the formula used to consolidate viewer votes & judges’ scores – while they were still busy conducting their standard verification checks on the results.

“Episode 8 in the series is the most challenging, as we have to cover 10 dances under extreme time pressure, which all compounded last night to create the ‘perfect storm’. Production along with auditors have only a few minutes to establish the ranking, and votes are so close that there are positional changes up to the last minute. The electronic formula used to calculate the scores and ranking was not updated from last week’s episode – meaning that the wrong formula was used to enter the points and calculate the final score. We always do a hand-check with the auditors as well to verify the results, but by the time we discovered the error, the credits were already rolling,” explains executive producer Kee-Leen Irvine from Rapid Blue (who produces the South African-version of the show for SABC 2).

As a result, the producers have reinstated Garth & Hayley, who will return to the show next week. The exact format and elimination procedure of the show will then be revealed. All votes from this week will be added to next week’s.

"The importance of the role of the auditor is self-evident. We are confident that Rapid Blue’s controls are effective. Fortunately the error was identified timeously and we are pleased that no-one has been compromised," states Claire Kriel, manager for Grant Thornton – the auditors verifying results for Strictly Come Dancing.

The remaining couples in the show are:
Tessa van Duuren & Grant Esterhuizen
Rob van Vuuren & Mary Martin
Cindy Nell & Jonathan Broadway
Garth Collins & Hayley Bennett
Anele Mdoda & Brandon Eilers Le Riche

Its soo disappointing guys!!!! SCD cant afford to have such mistakes..
Tessa?? even when she is 1st with the judges score she can still be in the dance off??

Beyonce
21 Nov 2008 21:09

Cande- problem is you need both the judges and viewers votes. Tess has the judges( and very deserving) but not the viewers- simple because we dont really know her, so she does not have a huge following/fanbase like abo Garth, Anele, Cindy Nel etc. To tell you the truth I only saw Tessa for the first time on SCD

<<"As I said, that's coz all she does is dance, dance dance, so obviously it's gonna show!!!!!>>>

Hey Nonny, what's your grind with Tessa? As i understand it, she's busy with TV ads & running her stabling business ...... but does it matter whether she works or not. The girls loaded with talent and being relatively unknown, she's clearly working her butt off to get the recognition she deserves. If the public are honest enough and go by the talent and performances then Tessa and Grant are the winners by FAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. 
Here's just hoping the voting public have as much integrity as Tessa does!!!

Why I ask is it that in Season 5 of such a highly rated program is there NOW a "technical glitch"?Do these producers really think we're that STUPID!yes i suppose this calls for more viewers & ratings are probably going to soar for about 1 week & then what??Are people really going to fall for this?do people really want garth for the winner?can viewers not see the differnce in the dancing?

Cindy, rob and tessa are by far the better dancers in this competition. anele's time is also up cos she has lost that sparkle that she had. is it because hayley and hhp won a season(or something) so NOW she cannot loose? agge man come on it's a competion, u cannot win everytime u enter. as it is she's doing all the work and granite just stands there ke tsipa nd ngesonto eleholule wazama ukwenza tswalatsa. cindy is really the one to look out for but i think tessa is the BIGGEST competition so they will rather get rid of her. rob is the star of the show. it seems like every time tessa and grant do well people try and push them down, way down! don't people listen to judges anymore, those peopl;e are ther for a reson, they know dansing better than anyone so shouldn't we listen to them if only for an idea of what a certan dance is about.

Would they give a couple a hi score if they not worth it? i don't think sowhy would tyron have told rob that his s[pastic, if tessa is really a favoret why would she have been in the dace off, and would they have really told cindy's partner, jonothin, that he's choreogrefy lacks imagination? it seems though that ther is a favoret and the people that be want their favorit, favorit to win.

So tell me again why are we voting? it definitly isn't for my heatlh cos it's gone down the tube since my favorit got voted off. i think i'll vote for the 2 top couples robisto (twakkie, robbie, the man with the master plan) nd mary nd tessa nd grant, (u talk about garth's a$$ have u seen this man's?? nd he's very easy on the eyes too, yumm yumm).

i am a silent observer nd finaly felt the need to say my say, i don't belong to nobodies family, im not anybody's fan just a like my name says: i c the truth

That is exactly how I feel TRUTH, I think they are being kind to Anele coz of her weight.

Hey Nonny, what's your grind with Tessa?
@ Micklain - I've got no beef with Tess Tess *it's already crystal clear that she will eitherbe in 1st or 2nd position*, I just believe Rob & Mary are more deservant.
