After a few close calls the past couple of weeks, Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy dazzled with a Halloween themed Samba. I think from this point on, it’s a win for Hope in that I think she’s already progressed farther than expected. Of course, it could be said that even stepping onto the dance floor the first week was a win for Hope. I’d love to see her win this, but I suspect the judging will really get tough as we’re getting closer to naming a winner. Kudos to Hope for making the final 5.
