Kari, I also feel the same way about Cheryl. I use to really like her but now I just feel "blah" about her. Can't really pinpoint the change. Pretty much the same thing with Mark also. Love Derek and Maks!
I wasn't disappointed with Elisabetta going home. I didn't really care for her. I did feel sorry for her partner Val though because I'm sure he would have like his first season on the show to last a lot longer and maybe even beat his brother.
