Yep, it was cruel but highly watchable. Louie is the Hiroshima bomb of put downs!
I enjoyed watching him on CBB, mainly because he was the most intelligent person in there and wasn't afraid to open his mouth when something irritated him, unlike others who were cruising under the radar.
I think I'd like him in real life too. He's no nonsense and what you see is what you get.
As for people 'hating' his dancing skills - well he's having the last laugh and laughing all the way to the bank at that
