Monday night's performance got Arquette pretty stellar reviews from the judges. Judge Len Goodman, the guy that compared Chaz Bono to a cute little penguin, told Arquette he "turned himself into a dancer." Carrie Ann Inaba called his improvement "phenomenal."
In fact, it was Nancy Grace who received the lowest score that night. Dancing alongside her partner Tristan MacManus, Grace garnered only 21 points. The judges also criticized her missteps. Bruno Tonioli said, " Nancy my darling, I think the devil got you. Your shoes are too small!”
Right, her shoes. That must be it.
Because Arquette did so well, after it was announced he was going home, he said, "this whole thing has been incredible. But there must be some mistake because this is my show."
Nope, it was true. Everyone's favorite estranged spouse wasn't necessarily their favorite dancer.
“I came here to get to know more about myself, face my fears, and have America get to know more about myself, and dance,” Arquette said.
The actor added he learned “Self worth, a pride in standing up for myself, sort of opening myself up. D.W.T.S. was an experience of a lifetime and it’s something everyone should challenge themselves with because you learn a lot about yourself."
So now that we're getting rid of the dead weight (aside from Nancy Grace), who's competing for the top spot? Ricki Lake has been doing consistently well on the show, and on Monday night's episode, she regained her status as the show's frontrunner. Rob Kardashian has also been proving that the Kardashians actually have other talents. Talents that don't involve Tweeting about QuickTrim or otherwise "branding" themselves.
Something tells me it's going to be between these two in the end.
Oh, and it should also be mentioned that Justin Bieber took the stage on Tuesday night. He performed a festive rendition of "Fa La La" with Boyz II Men. Yes, Boyz II Men is still around, apparently. And if that wasn't enough, the Biebs also crooned the audience with his hit, Never Say Never. There was also pyrotechnics. The audience went freakin' bananas. It was Justin Bieber, after all.
