Week 1 - DWTSGame Season 6
 
Brittany Brannon (voiceover): Last season on the DWTSGame, 18 couples took to the dancefloor in an all-out-dance battle. After weeks of surprise eliminations and hard competition, actress Julia Roberts surprisingly emerged as the people’s champion! This season, another 18 stars will battle in the ballroom, with all of our contestants potential winners. Who will flop and who will fly? Live! This is Dancing with the Stars!

The opening sequence is shown. Christina and Jonathan perform a drop-and-roll. Jeff jokes around with Cheryl. Bill lifts up Anna. Jesse spins Kym. Jodie and Tony perform an elegant pose. Morgan and Edyta also do a graceful pose. Elizabeth and Neil do a sultry pose. Alec spins Linda gracefully. Katherine and Maksim perform a sexy move. Conan tries to give a good move but Lauren is laughing too much. P!nk and Louis do a dramatic, Paso style move. Joan and Corky pretend to do a sultry pose. Kelly and Derek perform a sexy move. Deion picks up Tiphanie and spins her. Jordin and Mark do a fun move. Justin and Karina do a sexy pose. Patrick throws up Kendra. The DWTSGame Logo is shown.

Brittany: Hello and welcome to Dancing with the Stars! I'm Brittany Brannon, runner-up of Season 20!
Jennifer Aniston: And I am your new co-host, Jennifer Aniston, winner of Season 20! Good to be here with you, Brittany!
Brittany: We love having you here – even if you did beat me (audience laughs)! But we also can't wait to meet our stars. With many famous actors, singers, and even a former President, this cast will NOT let you down!
Jennifer: It pleasures me to say this! Please welcome the stars of Season 6!

The stars come down the stairs in this order: Deion Sanders, Linda Hamilton, Jodie Foster, Christina Applegate, P!nk, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Gillies, Matthew Morrison, Kelly Rowland, Patrick Warburton, Jeff Bridges, Conan O'Brien, Jordin Sparks, Joan Rivers, Bill Clinton, Katherine Heigl, Justin Timberlake, and Jesse Eisenberg.

Jennifer: I am seriously looking forward to seeing these guys dance!
Brittany: Me either! Now, this season doesn't just have new stars and a new host. No, no (shakes head; audience laughs). Audience, let's meet our brand-new judging panel! The first new judge is the DWTSGame producer who knows what to look for in the contestants this season. Please welcome Natalie Sanders!
Jennifer: Next is the former Dancing with the Stars pro who knows how to push around the stars. Please welcome Elena Grinenko!
Brittany: And she is the unofficial “Miss Mean” of the DWTSGame, giving her opinion on everyone, even starting a few fights on occasions. Please welcome back Valerie Hashburntar!
Jennifer: So Valerie, back on the panel for another season, happy you weren't on mine and Brittany’ season! (laughter) What are you looking for this season?
Valerie: I want to see real talent this season. I want another final where nobody can expect the result!
Brittany: Elena Grinenko, an actual professional dancer on the panel, who has dealt with dancing divas in the past (laughter), what should come out of the stars in Season 6?
Elena: Determination, courage, and ability. Someone who can listen to their partners! That, to me, will make a winning dancer.
Jennifer: And Natalie, the CREATOR of DWTSGame! What you are expecting from our stars?
Natalie: I wouldn't want to say because anything can happen on this show! Who knows what the public will vote for! If Betty White can make the semi-finals then there’s hope for anyone!

Jennifer: There you are! Our judges for the season! But now, it‘s time to give them something to judge. Who’s up first, Brittany?
Brittany: The first dance of the season goes to the man who’s considered one of the most versatile athletes in sporting history. He was voted #34 in the greatest NFL stars of all time. He even released an album of his music in 1994! How will his fast feet transfer on the dancefloor? It's NFL's Primetime Player, athlete Deion Sanders, and his partner Tiphanie McNiff!

In his VT, we see some of Deion's NFL moments and clips of his songs from the 1990s. Tiphanie is very happy to have Deion (an NFL player) as a first partner, even if they are on opposing teams, and thinks he's doing a great job.

Brittany: What a wonderful beginning to the season! Let's see what our judges thought.
Natalie: Wow! Such a fun way to start the season off! I know NFL players don’t always start out the most graceful, but give it time. Maybe we’ll see some good things from you!
Elena: Pretty good job, but I'm not impressed.
Valerie: I was very impressed, actually! NFL stars come out fighting Week 1, and you did exactly that.
Brittany: Great start to the season! Up you go to Jennifer!

Natalie: Good job, Linda! Love your movies. As for your dancing… I can see a lot of timidness and nervousness. It took away from the fluidity of your dance; I saw a few stumbles. Work on your confidence and maybe we can see a ‘Julia Roberts effect’ for you!
Valerie: Well done, Linda! I think this was a good first dance, and who knows how you could carry on in this competition?

Natalie: Wow. Can’t believe I get to judge MORGAN FREEMAN’S dancing! What a career highlight! Now, with your age, I can understand there would be a little lack of fluidity in your performance.

Natalie: An Elvis song! Funky! Jeff, like Patrick, you didn’t give us the finest quality of performance, but hey, it’s the first week, I’ll cut you some slack. Next time, try keeping up with Cheryl! It’ll work!

Natalie: Oh Conan… Ooh. That just… Ah… I don’t know how else to put it… It wasn’t very good. Disjointed, all over the place, and trying to be funny when it just shouldn’t have. I think you missed the mark, bud.
Elena: You are extremely funny in what you do and you didn't disappoint tonight. You made me laugh, but unfortunately there was not that much Salsa in it. Sorry!

Valerie: Joan, I love you, but I have to say that dance wasn't very good. I couldn't take it seriously whatsoever.
Natalie: Well, Joan… I’m sorry. I think you think that you didn’t do well. Something about it just seemed awkward and unmemorable. I’m sure you were trying to be classy and comical at the same time, but sadly, it just didn’t work.

Total: 25

Jennifer: Wow. that was an AWESOME first score! I didn’t even get a 9 for my first dance! Highest score so far, back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen, the final star tonight is the actor who has starred in such films like Zombieland, The Social Network and 30 Minutes or Less. But can he show an impressive performance tonight? It's The Social Star, actor Jesse Eisenberg and his partner Kym Johnson!

In Jesse's VT we see clips of his movies like The Social Network and Zombieland. Kym notices Jesse's a bit timid but hopes he will build up to be a good dancer from his experiences.

Voiceover: Dancing the Waltz, Jesse Eisenberg and his partner, Kym Johnson.

Jesse is wearing a white suit. Kym is wearing a white dress. The pair dances to “You're My Number One” by Enrique Iglesias. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: Wow, let's see if you are number one tonight! Judges?
Valerie: Well done Jesse, I think you were quite shy and self-reserved so you should do better, to be honest.
Natalie: Jesse, you seem a little nervous about being here. Let’s try and work on your people skills this season, babe! I think next time, you just gotta let loose. Then, I think you can work some real magic! Nice way to end the show, though!
Elena: I don't think you wore comfortable doing this dance. It was not bad, but a bit boring.
Brittany: Well up you go to Jen!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: Congratulations you guys, last up on the night! Scores are in.

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Natalie Sanders: 7
Elena Grinenko: 6
Valerie Hashburntar: 6

Total: 19

Jennifer: Nice scores to end the night. Let’s take a look at tonight’s dances real quick!
