Despite hyping him up week one, the judges didn’t give Chaz Bono rave reviews — or scores — for his performance tonight. Plus, Nancy Grace accidentally let a nip slip!
Nancy Grace took ABC’s Dancing with the Stars to a PG-13 rating tonight! The normally outspoken talking head was mortified when one of her nipples popped out in full form after finishing her dance. At first she was unaware, but the camera quickly cut from her face to the audience and we could hear host Tom Bergeron coming to the rescue saying, “There we go, there we go. Let me just help you out there a little bit.”
Meanwhile, Chaz Bono has been one of — if not, the most — controversial celebrity to have ever competed on Dancing with the Stars, so it’ll be a big old bummer if he gets sent home in week two. However, the 42-year-old transgender advocate struggled tonight with all the pressure dancing has put on his joints and didn’t hold it together very well. However, while Chaz failed to impress, Ricki Lake shocked everyone with a sexy, fun and overall entertaining number that garnered her the highest scores of the evening. After watching week two, who do YOU think has what it takes to win the Mirror Ball Trophy?
Here are my thoughts on each performance:
Hope Solo: Hope started the night off with a jive to Avril Lavigne‘s hit, “Girlfriend,” which was super cute. The judges enjoyed it, but still told her she has much room for improvement. I thought her interview at the end was funny. “These soccer kicks to these dance kicks are two entirely different things!” she told Brooke Burke. 6, 7, 6 = 19/30
Kristin Cavallari: The Hills star channeled old Hollywood for her adorable quickstep. Even though she doesn’t have a performance background, Kristin sparkles on stage. “Last week nervous. This week, stunning, sophisticated!” Carrie Ann Inaba raved. 8, 7, 7 = 22/30
David Arquette: I’m still giggling like a school girl after watching David’s jive. Despite his horrible technique, he was having so much fun, I couldn’t take my eyes off the TV screen. If you haven’t watched it already, be sure to check it out. It’s the funniest performance of the night. I’d be devastated if he gets kicked off — he’s so likable! “You’re starting to find your persona,” Bruno said. 6, 6, 6 = 18/30
Elisabetta Canalis: It could just be me, but I don’t find Elisabetta likable at all. Last week, I was positive she’d get the boot, but somehow she hung in there! This week, Elisabetta’s dance moves improved, but her charisma (in my humble opinion) did not. Am I being too harsh? 7, 7, 7 = 21/30
Rob Kardashian: Rob seemed cautious to me on stage, like he was scared to be there. However, the judges raved about how much progress he made in one week. “It’s official, Rob Kardashian made it farther than Kim Kardashian!” Carrie Ann said. “You’ve got the dancing gene!” I don’t think this is Rob’s destiny, but I’m fine keeping him around for one more week. 7, 7, 7 = 21/30
Carson Kressley: Carson’s performance looked and sounded like a Kindergartener’s learning tape. The song choice was horrible and he resembled Pee Wee Herman. To top it off, I missed Carson’s charisma from last week. It seemed like he was trying soo hard; he didn’t sparkle. I like Carson, but I don’t know how long he’ll make it. Len Goodman pointed out that Carson worked the hardest out of all the contestants this week — and that breaks my heart. Do you think he’s a goner? 6, 6, 6 = 18/30
Ricki Lake: The studio audience went nuts for Ricki and so did I! I thought her jive to “Hey Ya!” was entertaining and quirky. I loved how she threw out the sexy moves and gave it so much personality. Plus, it wasn’t all charisma. “You’re the first person to do the kicks and flips tonight currently,” Bruno complimented. Carrie Ann raved as well. “Best jive of the night so far!” she said.
Chaz Bono: Chaz and Lacey sure brought the energy to the dance floor, despite Chaz’s screwed up knee. “The quickstep has to be fast,” Bruno said, critiquing Chaz’s speed. After all the hype, it seems like he’s having a hard time living up to expectations. I think we need to keep him around for a couple more weeks, but ultimately, he’s just not a dancer. 6, 5, 6 = 17/30
Chyna Phillips: Chyna has a bangin’ bod, so she looks fantastic in her costumes. However, she seemed a little loosey-goosey in her steps tonight. I think she’ll be around for awhile, but she’s certainly not my favorite. 7, 7, 7 = 21/30
Nancy Grace: I couldn’t believe how frustrated Nancy was getting with herself during rehearsals. It’s interesting to see how different she is on the dance floor than she is as a talking head behind a desk. She’s downright vulnerable! Although I wasn’t a huge fan of her performance tonight, the judges seemed pleased. “How refreshing,” Len raved. “Every dance has broken the rules of the quickstep! … That was a proper quickstep! Well done.” Plus, we’ll never forget her now infamous wardrobe malfunction…poor thing! 6, 8, 7 = 21/30
J.R. Martinez: Wow! It’s obvious why producers saved this jive for the last number of the night! J.R. proved to be the best dancer of the night once again. His moves were tight and filled with spark. The judges weren’t pleased with the choreography, but I’m not a dance pro, so I was thrilled with the performance. Next to Kristin Cavallari’s dance, this was my favorite. He’s fantastic! 7, 7, 8 = 22/30
