Two Dancers Sent to the Hospital on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Hell Week (VIDEO)

Ryan Ramirez, 'So You Think You Can Dance'It was 'Hell Week' on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX), which is one of the most brutal boot camps of any reality show. The dancers work from sun-up to well past sun-down most days, and all that training with so little rest takes its toll.

This season saw two early notable contestants sent to the hospital. Sasha and Natalia Mallory auditioned side-by-side, and even took to the stage together for their solo performance in Vegas.

So it was no surprise that Sasha was ready to follow Natalia to the hospital when the latter's blood sugar dropped and the medics recommended she get checked out.

In the contemporary round with Travis Wall, Ryan Ramirez who's come so close to the Top 20 in the past, pulled her back and had people fearing a broken tailbone. She was terrified about missing the next round, but both dancers made it back into the competition and survived to the next stage of the competition.

Who were you most crushed to see sent packing? We're kind of sad to lose our Irish dancer, as well as our female breakers. We'd love to see a roster with a lot more diversity than the bevy of contemporary dancers, sprinkled with a few hip-hop and ballroom dancers for flavor.

I was sorry to see the Irish dancer go, and My Long shot Princess? From NY. I loved her spy dance audition. I was cracking up thinking of her being a super hero, or villain in a comedy movie. To tell the truth I was flipping between AMGT and SYTYCD My long shot on AMGT is the girl that sang Ava Maria, and on SYTYCD is the heavy set girl Natalie. She reminds of Benjies partner, and of course I just loved Benjie, I still do.

I like the show for its surprisingly upbeat tone. The competition has to be fierce to find one 'favorite' dancer. But dancers work in community and suppport each other. The judges foster growth and seem to like most of the people who are out there working their hearts out. One of the dancers was given a 'free pass' from the brutal contemporary session and was passed through for another chance. This show deserves credit for bringing dancers to the spot light. More often, the dancers with most talent are used as back up to a lesser star, singer or actor who can not dance. And dancers work much harder than most other stars.

I find it interesting that these people are willing to go thru this, but not one in a hundred is willing to go thru military boot camp to protect the country that has given them the chance to be on these shows.

Natalia is too fat and probably has diabetes and they should have let her go home but the ratings will go up because more people will watch the show to see her go back to the hospital . That's all that they care about.
As far as injuries, that's part of dance. As far as the judges being mean, apparently you have never been to a dance audition in Las Vegas for the big shows. Don Arden at the MGM, would say "Get that fat cow off my stage. " or "Okay youcan be in my show, but if you don't get a nose job within 6 mo. you are gone." So I think that these judges are pretty mild. Besides everyone knows that they start with 100, let 80 go, and still only 1 person wins.

Natalia needs to go. I'm not inspired. She dances alright but she isn't top 20 material. Maybe the others should cry!

I watched So You Think You Can Dance last night. It was so up setting the way the dancers were treated! Will not be watching any more! The judges should all be ashamed of the way they treated the dancers! Fox you need to select nicer and better judges! People are human and need to be treated with respect. Shame on all the judges!
