Ox Notes: May 20, 2008

After last night’s Dancing with the Stars 6 Finals, Jason Taylor wrote in his ESPN blog, "Kristi will win."

Kristi Yamaguchi didn’t sound so sure of the outcome in her OK! blog. And Mark Ballas’s parents told TV Guide that Mark’s early ouster from Season 4 gave him a healthy degree of paranoia this season.

DwtS pro Jonathan Roberts told TV Squad that he’s rooting for Kristi & Mark to win, as are Diane Mizota and Joey Lawrence of the Yahoo! Buzz Session.

Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, and The Insider all have interview videos from last night’s shows (warning: Cojo conducts the interviews for The Insider).

In other TV news, networks’ paucity of completed pilots is limiting the number of American shows foreign buyers are purchasing for next season.

Survivor lowered its age limit for applicants from 21 to 18.

Gordon Ramsey told TV Guide that he’s pissed at Fox for casting Hell’s Kitchen contestants that are "flamboyant," but lacking in cooking skills.

Maybe he’ll lighten up a bit when he sees Fox’s upcoming American version of the game show Hole in the Wall. This TV Guide article includes a clip from the Danish edition.
