It’s week two on Dancing With The Stars, and unlike the first week, there was more at stake last night as somebody will be eliminated tonight.
This week, the dances were the quickstep or the jive. When it came to the scoreboard, not much changed from week 1 as the leaders of the pack performed well while others remained in danger of elimination.
There was a three way tie for first place with Romeo, Hines Ward, and Chris Jericho each earning 23 points. While Hines received praises for his quick step, judge Len Goodman went as far as to declare Romeo’s quick step “the best dance of the night.”
Meanwhile, the top scorers from last week, Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio, fell a bit this week, garnering 20 and 21 points respectively. Ralph received some criticism for his jive with Carrie Ann Inaba telling him he needed to be “sharper.” Kirstie received praises from the judges for her energetic quickstep with partner Maksim, which ended with a “spontaneous” kiss by the way. “I love watching you dance,” said Carrie Ann.
As for Kendra Wilkinson, she continued to struggle, only improving a point from the previous week, with a score of 19. Wendy Williams also showed some slight improvement with a score of 17 for her high spirited jive. Also scoring 17 was
hotness Mike Catherwood, though the cumulative total from both weeks puts him at the bottom of the scoreboard. And model Petra Nemcova scored another 18 for the second week in a row.
The stars’ scores this week will be added to last week’s points. That total will be combined with the viewers’ votes to determine who’ll be the first to go this season. The results show airs tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Chris Brown is also scheduled to perform on the show.
