This week our couples danced to famous television theme songs. Also, Season 19 winner Alfonso Ribeiro (he’s also host of ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos) was back in the ballroom as a guest judge. In other news, Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kim Zolciak Biermann recently suffered a stroke, so we discover her fate with the show. Which celebrities improved and which ones haven’t? Here are the couples:

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson

Dance: Jazz
TV Show: Golden Girls (“Thank You for Being a Friend”)
Phone Number: 855-234-5605

  • This was a cute dance. I think they had fun with the Golden Girls theme. I thought one of his turns was awkward. But these two dance well together. Alfonso is right in saying that Carlos needs to let go more.

Score: Carrie Ann-7, Alfonso-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8 – Total: 31

Paula Deen and Louis van Amstel
Dance: Samba
TV Show: Gilligan’s Island
Phone Number: 855-234-5611

  • I thought this was a little weird for a Samba. I felt that there wasn’t enough Samba in the dance. It also looked like Paula was thinking in her head too much.

Score: Carrie Ann-5, Alfonso-5, Julianne-5, Bruno-5- Total: 20

Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Tango
TV Show: Mad Men
Phone Number: 855-234-5612

  • I thought this dance was really good. And the chemistry this week was even better. It was powerful and the energy was high throughout the dance.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Alfonso- 9, Julianne-8, Bruno-8- Total: 33

Dance: Jazz
TV Show: Breaking Bad
Phone Number: 855-234-5602

  • Mark created some crazy choreography. But you know what? Alexa did amazingly with what Mark threw at her. I agree that she could win.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Alfonso- 9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9- Total: 36

Andy Grammer and Allison Holker
Dance: Quickstep
TV Show: American Bandstand
Phone Number: 855-234-5603

  • Andy did a decent job on this dance. I thought there was a moment of unsteadiness but I thought the energy was high. He has some stuff to work on but I think he can just keep making improvements.

Score: Carrie Ann-7, Alfonso-7, Julianne-8, Bruno-7- Total: 29

Dance: Tango
TV Show: The Addams Family
Phone Number: 855-234-5607

  • I have to admit I didn’t love this but of course the song was perfect for Gary. He has improved and worked very hard. I know I have said it before but he kind of scares me.

Score: Carrie Ann-6, Alfonso-7, Julianne-6, Bruno-6- Total: 25

Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold
Dance: Tango
TV Show: True Blood
Phone Number: 855-234-5601

  • This guy really impresses me every week. It looked like he got all the footwork. Lindsay is doing a great job with this non-dancer. The judges discussed how amazing his technique was and I would concur.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Alfonso-8, Julianne-9, Bruno-8- Total: 33

Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony Dovolani

Dance: Samba
TV Show: I Dream of Jeannie

  • Because Kim had a mini-stroke, she couldn’t fly and subsequently couldn’t dance. So Tony ended up doing the routine with fellow Pro dancer Jenna Johnson. It’s too bad Kim had to withdraw from the competition because reportedly she will be okay next week.

Dance: Jive
TV Show: The Jeffersons
Phone Number: 855-234-5604

  • They originally were doing a different dance and switched over to this one. That means they had less time to do learn this choreography. Bindi has fantastic energy and she does amazing. Even though this wasn’t her best dance, I still think she’s a frontrunner.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Alfonso- 8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8- Total: 32

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Viennese Waltz
TV Show: Downton Abbey
Phone Number: 855-234-5610

  • I thought this was a beautiful dance. Nick worked really hard and also I agreed with Julianne, it was the best dance of the night. You felt every emotion and every step. Nick is showing that he is not just a guy from a boy band. He can be elegant and graceful, too.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Alfonso- 9,Julianne-9, Bruno-9- Total: 36

Hayes Grier and Emma Slater
Dance: Jive
TV Show: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Phone Number: 855-234-5608

  • I thought there wasn’t enough Jive in the dance. Hayes did okay but he lost steam in the middle of the routine. He worked hard but it wasn’t enough for me.

Score: Carrie Ann-7, Alfonso-8, Julianne-7, Bruno-8- Total: 30

The Elimination
The first couple in jeopardy was Andy & Allison. The second couple in jeopardy was Paula & Louie. The remaining couples are told they are safe. Since Kim and Tony had to withdraw, no one is eliminated!
