Is anyone else totally obsessed with Riker and Allison? The duo danced the samba on April 20 to Jason Derulo’s ‘Want To Want Me’ and it was absolutely incredible — so why were they in jeopardy?
Fans were pretty shocked when Riker Lynch and Allison Holker, who received the best score of the night, landed in jeopardy on April 20 — and I was right there with them. While that doesn’t necessarily mean they were on the bottom, with the way he’s been improving each week (from great to ridiculously great), they should never have to feel worried.
‘DWTS’: Riker Lynch’s Spring Break Week Was Incredible
Two weeks ago, they danced the Paso Doble and got a 38 out of 40 — how does that equal out to being in jeopardy?
Plus, after this samba, Carrie Ann Inaba said it best: “You make me want to be a teeny bopper all over again because I am fan-girling out every time I watch you!” I mean, if that’s not the truth, I don’t know what is!
Riker’s Song Switcheroo
At first, I have to admit I thought it was weird that the pair asked for a new song just because Missy Elliot‘s “Work It” was too sexual for Riker.
However, I then realized how great it was that Allison knew her partner enough to know that it wasn’t appropriate for him, and understood. Surely, their new song worked out for them — they did amazing. They only had two days to practice it and nailed it. Who else can say that?
The pair have been nailing it week after week, so the moral of the story is that Riker should never ever be on the bottom again, unless he’s lifting Allison, of course! Every dance they just get better and better, no matter what style of song or dance it is.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Allison and Riker could win it all? Let me know!
