'Dancing With the Stars': Your Hidden Gems of the season 13 premiere!

Studies have shown that Hidden Gems of the Week, EW.com’s collection of reader-submitted ridiculata, is the best way to enjoy Dancing With the Stars without ever having to turn it on. It’s a visual feast of sparkles, fringe, and stunning awkwardness. Ready to go down the rabbit hole? Behold this bountiful smattering of Visible Gems!

“Nancy’s daughter is digging for some hidden gems of her own: Bruno asked how (“how”, not “where”) her twins were doing and Nancy pointed to her kids in the audience, where her daughter was pretty intent on picking her little nose.” –Cindy, endorsed by Kelly, etm, socialandrea, Neko, kt, Jem Ho, Amy in Pittsburgh, april, PastorGuy, KristieD, Duckiez, Jenn67, brad, sarajaylafauci, Mccliza, Hiddle, monkey_girl03, glenn, KarenNJ, RedRobin, Presto, The Other Annie B, Anthony, F, AL

“Even Metta World Peace’s bowtie had chain fringe! Just when I thought they couldn’t put fringe anywhere else, the DWTS designers surprise me!” –kt, endorsed by iggy
“David A. looking like a ventriloquist dummy behind Ron A while he was getting his scores” –LB, endorsed by azmouse

“Bruno looking SO bored after Rob & Cheryl’s scores. He needs a refresher course in the “turn it on for the camera!” forced enthusiasm.” –Jem Ho, endorsed by Leila, PIMB, Mccliza

“J.R. Martinez doing the snake behind Kristin and Mark.” –gigi

“Chynna had gems glued in her hair part, which gave her the appearance of sparkly dandruff. There are some places gems just shouldn’t be…” –kt, endorsed by Amy in Pittsburgh, socialandrea, LAG Award Winner, Jem Ho, Michele, Mrs. Bergeron

“David Arquette is wearing the tiniest earring in the world. Under a microscope, you’ll find it is actually a mini-mirrorball.” –socialandrea

“Pee Wee Herman sitting next to Courtney and Coco.” –gigi, Presto, starsweeper, Anthony

“Was Chaz’s “chat area” really a kitchen in the pre- dance segment?!?!” –Xorp

“The new celebraskyboxmazzaine that had a cute DWTS mirrorball trophy design at the top of the staircase. I liked how subtle it was!” –Anthony, endorsed by socialandrea

    Did anybody see the camera shot of former competitor Kyle Massey applauding after one of the performances? I recognized him right at that moment! I didn’t see that at first but Nancy Grace’s kids picking on their noses during the camera shot at them was surprising and funny and a little gross. Maybe they had the sniffles or something. How come their dad didn’t bring some tissue with him to blow their noses?

    • Angela

      I saw him! It was after Chaz and Lacey (as Lacey was his partner).

      Also, I thought BOTH kids were picking their noses. I did a spit-take in my living room.

    • Mellissa

      Aw, c’mon, they’re three.

  • Anthony Covino

    YAY!!!! I was mentioned a bunch and got the last one!!! WOOt WOOT!

  • kt

    Thanks for including my gems Annie! My favorite caption though is: Bruce_Jenner_feels_left_out. lol

    • LAG Award Winner

      Thanks for reminding us of the Hidden Gems captions “behind” the screen grabs!! Had forgotten about them.

      • Jem Ho

        I can’t believe I forgot about those too! How could we??

    • Anon

      Keep your snacks close is pretty funny!

  • Jenn B

    You missed Derek’s bum. I think it’s trying to rival Mak’s!

    • sparklecow

      Never happen! Maks doesn’t have a rival in that department. He’s perfection personified.

    • Al

      Key word here is TRYING.

  • gigi

    Woo Hoo!! Two shout outs!! Thanks Annie!! P.S….The Jeepers Creeper Gem had me LOLing.. And that shot of Coco doing the shimmy dance..too cute! Enthusiastic Coco Arquette…ECA!!

  • SunBlitz42

    WHAT is going on on the judges table during LMFAO’s performance??? Is that Carrie Ann and Bruno??

    • SunBlitz42

      OMG, what just happened? Loved Tom’s WTF quip!

      • Brenda

        We need an isolation shot of them dancing.

  • Z

    Some of you people really have no life.

  • Squishmar

    Maybe the “Jeepers Creepers” shot is really one of Chynna’s “angels”.

    • Lyndsey

      Angels? Did I miss something Squish? I was doing a lot of flipping so I could check out Ashton on Two & a Half Men and then NCIS: LA (I so want to be Linda Hunt’s Hetty when I grow up, LOL)!

      • Squishmar

        Oh, it was some little article that EW had after the premiere… I don’t know if it will let me do a link…http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/09/20/chynna-phillips-on-dancing-with-the-stars-orphans-were-dancing-around-me-huh/
        It’s kind of sweet but a little nuts too. ;)

      • Lyndsey

        Wow!!! I appreciate the sentiment but what the heck was she smoking??! Definitely a little crazy though I guess you have to be when you’re married to a Baldwin! ;-) I do love Billy though…he’s always been my favorite.
        So have you picked favorites yet? I was impressed by Chynna & David’s dancing yet I’m smitten with Carson’s personality & antics! LOL! Thankfully I think this season is going to be far better than I initially thought after the cast announcement.

  • dee

    I still can’t believe Francis Ford Coppola produced the Jeepers Creepers movies.

  • juliaxx

    picking their nose was gross, but let’s give 3-year olds a break..

    • Presto

      I thought it was cute. She’s got the sweetest little haircut, too.

    • Mellissa

      Yeah, that was my thought too. I mean, it’s not like a grown up was doing it.

    • Edmonton Girl

      Don’t all kids pick their noses? Poor little things, that will probably haunt them forever.

  • tkemoses

    Was that really Mel Blount in the audience? Still? HInes Ward was last season, dude. Or could it be some doppleganger I keep mistaking for old Number 47.

  • KristieD

    So glad to have this show back on and great HG’s this week Annie!! Cant wait till next week!

  • Kelly

    Eeeee! How excited am I that my HG is the photo used for the revolving top stories thing on the main page?? That’s like my own little mirrorball trophy right there!

  • Jo

    Who was the lady in the audience that was crying after Chaz’ performance?

    • Mellissa

      His girlfriend.

  • Fred

    I thought Brooke stealing Ricki’s “high five” was a hoot. Oh Brooke, what would we do without you….
