It’s a new week and new dances. And believe it or not there are injuries. As Brooke Burke said it’s a little early in the competition for this. Check out each couple and what they had to struggle with and how they did last night:

Leah and Tony-

Dance: Rumba

I’m a fan. She’s hilarious in the rehearsal packages and with the judges. She is a competitor and has the potential to get to the finals and win this! And there is a lot of competition. She’s awesome!

Score: 8- Carrie Ann, 8- Len, 8-Bruno; Total: 24

Voting Number: 800-868-3411

Corbin and Karina

Dance: Quickstep

I said it last week. I like Corbin and I like Karina. But is it fair for him to be in this competition? Karina is so stoked that she pushed him into one of the fastest quicksteps I have ever seen on the show. Len thought it was too fast and you have to have a balance. But he got all the steps and it was great. It was so crazy.

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 26

Voting Number: 800-868-3406

Elizabeth and Val

Dance: Foxtrot

Clearly Elizabeth is a great dancer. She has the body and grace of a ballet dancer. It was really lovely to watch and she’s another contender.

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 8-Bruno; Total: 25

Voting Number: 800-868-3405

Brandt and Peta- 

Dance: Quickstep

Poor Brandt had a very challenging week. First off, earlier in the week he got robbed at gunpoint and ending up giving the thief his bag that also had his dancing shoes in it. That’s bad enough but he also had one of the injuries this week. He sprained his foot so he had to wear a boot during rehearsals. Talk about a little frustrating. But by the way they danced you couldn’t even tell there was an issue. (How do you think the thief reacted when he opened that bag and found dancing shoes? See crime doesn’t pay!)

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9- Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

Voting number: 800-868-3403

Valerie and Tristan

Dance: Cha Cha

I love Valerie and I love Tristan. But, unfortunately it was very hard to watch the dance this week. Even when the crowd boos the judges and their scores for her, she is fine with it. She says they are just doing what they have to do. As Tom pointed out she is the most understanding star they have had when it comes to scores. I love that she is just happy to be there. (Tristan is a great teacher because he is patient and seems very nice.) I’m done kissing Tristan’s butt…..for now!

Score: 6-Carrie Ann, 5-Len, 5-Bruno; Total: 16

Voting Number: 800-868-3410

Bill and Emma

Dance: Paso Doble

The Dance King of the Rednecks was on fire! He did a great job and has continued to improve every week! That’s what this show is all about. Len said it was his best dance so far and I agree.

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 8-Bruno; Total Score: 24

Voting Number: 800-868-3409

Amber and Derek-

Dance: Charleston

I’m a fan and I don’t agree with the scores for this one. The judges said that it was great but there was something with her footwork. I still think she deserved 9’s! I loved this dance.

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 8-Bruno; Total: 24

Voting Number: 800-868-3407

Jack and Cheryl-

Dance: Cha Cha

Last season I was at a taping where Derek slid down this long and high ramp from the top of the stage. And it was really crazy and cool. Jack did this and almost fell off the ramp completely. I got a little nervous for him. He does get all the moves down for the dance, but he is stiff. My favorite part though is when Tom interviewed his family and his sister Kelly said something like: “I never thought I would see the day when my brother would wear fluorescent pink. It’s making all my dreams come true!” I love the Osbournes! How can you not?

Score: 7-Carrie Ann, 7-Len, 8-Bruno, Total: 22

Voting Number: 800-868-3402

Christina and Mark

Dance:  Charleston

Anybody else get a little nervous when Mark had clown makeup on? When Mark has done cool, weird dances in the past, Len hasn’t been happy about it. But they got high praise from the judges and it was deserved.

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 26

Voting Number: 800-868-3401

Snooki and Sasha

Dance: Quickstep

Snooki was determined to get higher scores this week and they did. Sasha and her even did a one-handed cart-wheel together, while they held their other hands together. During the rehearsal package it didn’t look like they were going to do it, but they did and it was really great.

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 8-Bruno; Total: 25

Voting Number: 800-868-3412

Bill Nye and Tyne

Dance: Jazz

Last week, Bill Nye (I still can’t just say Bill, so sue me!) got hurt during the greatest dance of all time! He ended up tearing 80% of his quadriceps. The doctor did suggest that he should not dance because he ran the risk of having to go into surgery. But Bill Nye is a scientist and figure out a way that he could perform and protect his leg. Also during the whole show before they danced, he was getting therapy on the leg that was injured. He did not want to give up. And what a performance he gave. Bill Nye doing the robot is a priceless piece of television history.

Score: 6-Carrie Ann, 5-Len, 5-Bruno; Total: 16

Voting Number: 800-868-3404

So then it was time to eliminate a couple.  Instead of going through everyone, Tom announced three couples: Mark and Christina, Bill Nye and Tyne and Brandt and Peta. These couples were in jeopardy and everyone else was safe. First Brandt and Peta were safe. But in the end it was Bill Nye and Tyne who were sent home. And honestly it was probably the best thing anyway with the kind of injury Bill Nye has. I will miss him!

Next week Julianne Hough comes back to the ballroom as a guest judge!!!! That will be fun.  See you next week and remember to vote!

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
