For those of us who have watched DWTS ever since it began, we know how Bruno is over the top with his praise and criticism. He is enthusiastic to say the least! So ... when he said that Chaz was like "a cute little penguin trying to be a big menacing bird of prey," it was a commentary on his dancing and his performance. The tango is the ballroom version of the paso doble and both are dances of seduction and the passion of love and hate. Chaz didn't pull any of that off. He actually did look like a cute little penguin in his tux and like a cuddly Ewok in his furry vest but not a fat troll as Chaz interpreted it. Chaz is fat. Who can deny that? He can't dance well. Obviously. He's not an actor and couldn't manage to play a role required of some of the dances. He's the daughter of iconic celebrities who had a double mastectomy and takes testosterone. His girlfriend said that's made him more aggressive and angry. 'Roids, anyone? Legally he's a man, however that's done, who wanted to help others in the same situation who could be inspired by his appearance on the show. That's a separate issue. Bruno is gay, flaming even, and has probably been around transgendered people. Not the point. They were all very PC about Chaz. That's just how Bruno gives critiques. Cher admits that she never watched the show before Chaz was on and took offense at the criticism of the judges when they were actually kinder to Chaz than to many other celebrity competitors who are and have been on DWTS. There are probably others who had their feelings hurt, too, but it's part of being judged, isn't it?
Maks is another deal altogether. He blows up at the judges periodically. Bet there were all kinds of fireworks when he and Karina were engaged!
