It’s a definite possibility with his celeb partner Ricki Lake! Just two weeks into the new season, Ricki, who has lost over 12 inches from her waist since rehearsals started, led the leader-board with the high score of 23! Ricki received praises from the judges for her energetic jive. Carrie Ann Inaba called it the best dance of the night while Len Goodman called it “an improvement from last week.”
Tying for second place were J.R. Martinez and Kristin Cavallari, each with a score of 22! JR’s score for his high energy jive ties his score from last week. The Hills’ alum Kristin shined with her quickstep despite receiving some criticism from Len. “It was not as good as you look,” he told Kristin.
Also showing improvement this week was Rob Kardashian! Following his jive performance, Carrie Ann called him the best dancer!… in the Kardashian family. “It’s official: Rob Kardashian is a better dancer than Kim Kardashian,” said Carrie Ann. “No offense to Kim, [but] you have the dancing gene, honey.”
Despite suffering a nip slip/wardrobe malfunction, Nancy Grace showed vast improvement in her dancing! After landing in the bottom two last week, the 51-year-old news anchor came back strong, earning a score of 21 for her quickstep.
Chaz Bono didn’t fare so well as he ended up in the bottom of the pack after receiving praises from the judges last week. With a score of 17 points for a quickstep routine that judges deemed too slow, Chaz finds himself in last place. “I’ve moved faster through the car wash,” said Len.
