'DWTS' Recap: Ricki Lake Leads The Semi-Finals With Rob Kardashian Close Behind

Tue, November 15, 2011 2:41am EDT by 10 Comments

We’re down to the final four and after tonight’s performances, Rob Kardashian proved he could very well take home the top prize!

Kim Kardashhian wasn’t kidding when she tweeted that her brother’s first dance of the night was his best. Rob Kardashian‘s Samba performance with Cheryl Burke even made his mother Kris Jenner tear up!

Rob Kardashian: Rob’s butt action during the Samba earned him some major points. “Bootylicious,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. 10,9,9=28/30. Rob wowed the crowd and the judges with his Argentine Tango, his second dance of the evening, with Len saying, ” You started as a goofy outsider, now your’e looking like a leading man!” 9,9,9=27/30. Rob and Cheryl won the third and final dance, the Cha Cha Relay, giving them an extra 10 points. Their total score: 67

Ricki Lake: Ricki’s Samba performance with Derek Hough earned the duo a perfect score (10,10,10) with Len saying, “You have just taken a step into the finals!” Ricki’s Argentine Tango earned her another top score (10,10,9). “Ricki, I don’t think you know how good you are,” said Len. Ricki and Derek came in second with their Cha Cha relay performance, giving them an extra 8 points. Total score: 67

J.R. Martinez: He may be the best dancer in the competition, but poor J. R. suffered a major setback when he twisted his ankle during rehearsals. His first performance of the Paseo Doble with Karina Smirnoff earned him his lowest score to date: 23 points, 8,7,8. “I know you suffered an injury, but we can only call it as we see it,” Len said. Carrie Ann said that J.R.’s posture was compromised by his twisted ankle. But we think he earned a perfect score with his optimistic attitude! J.R. made a comeback with his second performance The Argentine Tango scoring 9-9-9. You could tell by the look on J.R.’s face that he was in a lot of pain, but he still managed to capture the third spot in the Cha Cha Relay which gave him an extra 6 points. Total score: 56

Hope Solo: Hope was in so much pain during rehearsals, she decided to get shots that she had been saving for the Olympics.
The judges thought Hope was too aggressive during her first performance of the Paso Doble with Max. 7, 7, 7. Hope did a little better with her second performance earning 8,8,8 and came in last with her Cha Cha Relay performance. Total score: 49

Make sure you vote for your favorite!

I know Rickie Lake seems to be the judges’”darling”, but I don’t enjoy watching her. To me she is “wooden”(her face too.) I know she’s thinking about technique (shoulders down – arms up etc.), but when I was watching her much acclaimed waltz, I felt like I was watching a mannequin. Also, She was cast in “Hairspray” because the creator was looking for a heavy girl that could dance. I don’t care if it was a while ago, dancing in a musical professionally means you shouldn’t be a contestanton DWTS.

Enough with the “I’m better than anyone else” ! Buying their daughter,at the age of 16…a $90,000 Range Rover!!
They are not in-touch with the 99%. Please all American
“STOP” supporting these crazy, none talent folks. They are not movie stars, they aren’t even “STARS”. BOYCOTT,is the only way to stop the madness.

DWTS needs to get rid of Carrie Ann as a judge. She just loves to poke at someone to annoy the crap out of them. She needs to go big time.

I agree with Halina 100%. Rob cannnot find himself with the Kardashian family. And what makes all of them so famous. What did they do? Sex films. Whow, that really sounds like alot of talent to be shown around the world.

Rob should win. He started out as an underdog and progressed each week. JR & Ricki started out well & have
just maintained or slipped because of an injury. This
show reflects the will of a person to challenge themselves to do something they have never tried before. BRAVO Rob
you have done a fantastic job!!!!!! Hope you win it all.

I think that Hope should win. The judges are extremely tough on her & she/Maks have done everything in their power to improve. They just can’t, cuz the judges are too harsh & ignorant especially Carrie Ann. Hope has done well & she is a star where as Rob is a nobody along with his whole family. This show is supposed to be stars not some family like Rob’s. Sure he’s nice guy & has done well, but really, is he a star. As for JR – now there’s the real start out of the whole bunch. If Hope doesn’t win, lets hope the judges, along with the voters open up their eyes instead of their big mouths & choose the right one to win.

Why does he have to find himself?? That’s ridiculous !!! Perhaps he needs to grow up and get a “real” job …..

Rob isn’t lost – just confused being brought up with the kind of family he was brought up in. Really, dressing him up in girls clothing & showing that off. Interesting……
