Kendra Wilkinson on Dancing With the Stars: A Lukewarm Debut

by at . Comments

Considered the odds-on favorite going in, Kendra Wilkinson's Dancing With the Stars debut did not meet the high expectations set for her last night.

We imagine she'll only get better, and that she'll have the fan support (Hugh and his thousands of bunnies alone should help) to last a while at least.

Boasting that she's "got moves for a white girl," the reality star with the stripper past danced the cha cha with partner Louis van Amstel Monday.

She promised a hot routine - "classy hot, not club hot" - but lukewarm may be more accurate. The judges had mixed reviews for K-Dubs. Here's why:

Kendra finished with 18 points, well back of leaders Ralph Macchio and Kristie Alley. You can watch ALL of last night's DWTS routines here on THG!

I don't know, I definitely think the judges were overly tough on Kendra and Louis relative to the rest of the pack. That choreography was heads and shoulders above anything else that was danced that night. Yeah Kendra was nervous but she actually danced through that monster of a piece which shows she can handle non-watered down routines. Her technique was not perfect for certain, but then again it wasn't terrible either and definitely among the top half in the group. I am sure her nerves will calm as the season progresses, but I give her props for daring to tackle a routine like that.

I watched enough of the new season to see that the greatest dancer and choriographer, Derrik Hough was not part of the show. With out him in the lineup, it is just another long drawn out reality show. How could you not have him back? When he comes back on the show, I will come back as a viewer. Until then, there are a lot of good show begging for my attention.

I WISHED I HAD SEEN IT. I HEARD THAT KIRSTIE DID GREAT. I WANNA KNOW HOW DID CHELSEA KANE AND ROMEO DID.

the best dancers of the night technically were the oldest two, Ralph Machio & Kirstie Alley. Kendra looked stiff & terrified, Heinz Ward was all smiles, which is great but dancing was off.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
