Charise and Henry, I hate to disagree with you two but Danny was arrogant. Technically no one on his season (season 3) could hold a candle to him; every time he went for post dance interviews you could see it in his face, he wanted no part of being told something wasn't good.
I didn't read it as arrogance, but I didn't save the shows and can't watch them again to see if I would read him differently now.
We will never know if the voters agreed, but Nigel's remark may have brought sympathy for him and kept him from the bottom for the rest of the show until it was down to him and Sabra. I think voters may have thought it was time for a woman to win, but they may also have just not wanted to vote for Danny.
Anyway, Jody, I've no problem with you disagreeing. And we do agree about his dance skill.
