Both Paige and Wanye topped the leaderboard tonight with a score of 24. At the bottom — Mischa (15) and Geraldo (13).
Find out who was eliminated after the recap below!
Mark Ballas had to sit out his dance with Paige VanZant due to a back injury he sustained during rehearsal. He is scheduled to have more testing on Tuesday — hopefully he’ll get the go-ahead to return although his fill-in, Alan Bersten was fantastic! (Score – 24)
Geraldo Rivera proved once again that he cannot dance no matter how hard Edyta tried to get him to loosen up. His Donald Trump wig was more entertaining than his dance moves – or lack of dance moves. (Score – 13)
Jodie and Keo’s Samba was a step up from last week, but Bruno and Carrie Ann pointed out that Jodie was still very tense. (Score – 21)
Marla and Tony’s performed the Argentine Tango and the former Mrs. Donald Trump may have missed a few steps, but she sure knew how to bring on the sexy! (Score – 20)
NFL star Antonio Brown had no problem lighting up the stage with his dazzling smile. Len thinks he has great potential — he just needs to work on his technique. Expect Antonio to be “boomin” on this show for awhile – perhaps a shot at the top four? (Score – 19)
Kim Fields was emotional during rehearsal and her nerves were on display during her Salsa with Sasha Farber. Her noticeable stop when a camera went around her on stage seemed to throw her off course. (Score – 19)
Nyle and Peta wowed the audience again this week, but they received some criticism from Len who thought their Rumba was a bit too “hectic.” They will need to step it up next week after a three point drop from last week. (Score – 20)
Mischa Barton still looked bored with the whole Dancing with the Stars competition this week. She just doesn’t look like she’s having fun at all. (Score – 15)
Boyz II Men singer Wanye Morris promised to bring his “A Game” this week and he did. All three judges loved his Salsa with Lindsay Arnold. Carrie Ann called him the “King of the Ballroom.” There is no doubt they will make it to the final four and probably further. (Score – 24)
Von Miller and Witney Carson performed the Cha-Cha-Cha and Carrie Ann thought he was “dancing too small,” but Len told him it was a “job well done.” (Score – 20)
Former NFL player Doug Flutie made a nice comeback this week with his Paso Doble. He increased his score by 5 points over last week’s performance. Still, there’s a lot more walking than dancing, but he’s far better than Geraldo and Mischa.(Score – 20)
Ginger was nervous she wouldn’t be able to show off her “sexy” tonight, but she did a great job. Bruno said that she brought on the “feel good” factor, but although she had a couple of missteps, her performance never faltered. (Score – 21)
