Everyone’s favorite ballroom dance adventure returned last night after voting Pamela Anderson off last week.
“This season, the hits just keep on coming,” said Judge Len Goodman.
Which is actually a fair assessment. Everyone is better than average this season, what I’m trying to say is, nobody is as bad as Kate Gosselin. Well, maybe Bristol Palin. More on her, later.
On Monday night the dances were the jive and the quickstep.
Sabrina Bryan and partner Louis Van Amstel took home the highest score, namely because Sabrina Bryan was an actual DANCER before she joined the Cheetah Girls, which they don't tend to highlight ever. Sabrina earned the first 9 of the season from judge Carrie Ann, Sabrina took home a total 26 points.
Despite a pulled muscle in his thigh, Giles Marini, the sexy actor that he is, pulled off a high-energy jive with Peta Murgatroyd and scored a “fabulous” (Len’s words) for a total score of 25.5 points.
Shawn Johnson’s gymnastics history is proving to be her “Secret weapon” and lead her and partner Derek Hough to a 25 point score for their cute ‘50s-style jive.
The other Olympian, Apolo Anton Ono, did a quickstep with incredible footwork with partner Karina Smirnoff that earned him a 24.5.
Carrie Ann told Melissa Rycroft that she was “meant to jive” for what was the “fastest jive” any of the judges had ever seen. Melissa and partner scored a 23.5 points.
We’ll skip over the lesser know “celebs” and check in with Drew Lachey and his punk jive that Carrie Ann called “edgy.” It wasn’t great, earning him a 22.5 point score.
Kirstie Alley feared all episode that she was “too old” citing that she’s lived three of Shawn Johnson’s lives. Carrie Ann tried to tell her that age = experience, but no matter how much of a pep talk they gave her, she scored a low 21 points.
And finally, the lowest score of the evening went to Bristol Palin. Despite a western-inspired dance to “Red-Neck Woman” (Palin is country-ish? Right?) she just didn’t have the technique to cut it and scored an 18. Ouch.
No matter, her rabid Tea-party fans will ensure she makes it to the finals.
