Indeed - I've read interviews where pros on DWTS have alluded to their pay being dependent on how long they are on the show. I believe there's an additional bonus for winning, and a smaller bonus for...

Nitpick away! That's what I initially thought, but her Cuban ancestry was mentioned so many times on the show and DS that I thought she may have moved to America as a young girl (e.g. age 14 - for...

To add to the discussion, UK immigration rules are constantly changing - what may have been the norm 5 years ago probably no longer applies. For a non EU migrant worker, there is a minimum annual...

His thinking was clearly misogynistic, but it was much broader than that, which is what I meant by it being a red herring. For example a man with a persistent...
