Pinky is the next to go, which means Shayla and Mara are in the bottom two and Pinky is not! How did this happen?? Pinky says Shayla is her biggest competition because she apparently forgot Ruben existed. She and Mr. Lucky are dancing to "Hot N Cold." Is that a Rihanna song? Aren't these all Rihanna songs? It's hard to tell. Like every other song, this one does not really go with a tango, and Pinky is obviously not totally comfortable with the moves until they get to the chorus and there's some bouncy fast moves for her. The crowd loves it, but Mayte starts off by saying that she could see where Pinky was struggling at parts. She enjoyed it overall, though, and gives Pinky a 7. Lisa didn't think there was enough "technical tango time" and gives her a 7 as well. Danny liked the "unconventional tango" moves but wanted to see more of the traditional stuff as well. And then he gives her a 9, so he clearly loved it. Or he just really likes Pinky. Anyway, that's a 2nd average of 7.7 and a total dance average of 8.0. She'll have to lose some serious weight to stay in the game, and she does! 6.4 pounds! Didn't Ruben get that, too? And Alicia? I think the scale is broken. Assuming that it isn't, she lost 3.7 percent of her body weight for a total of 11.70 -- 0.10 higher than Ruben! Ha! Take that, ringer!
Back from break, it's time for the bottom two. Mara will dance first. She says Alicia and Ruben are her biggest competitors here. Apparently, she thinks that "Shayla" is pronounced "Alicia." She's dancing to "Hey Sexy Lady." The dance features a rip-away skirt and Mara's cleavage. It looks like a fairly conventional tango after we're done with the prop work, and Mara tries hard to nail the intense tango face. There's nothing spectacular, though. Mayte claims to like the posture and the attitude, though, but she's said things like that and then given someone a "sexy 6," so who knows? Lisa liked the Pasa Doble and Flamenco elements of the dance, as well as Mara and Paul's partner work. Danny says that Mara's posture and arms have improved, but he noticed her sinking into her ribcage at times. That sounds painful. Mara steps on the scale. She lost 2.9 pounds for a percentage of 1.21. Hmmm... not good. We'll see if it's enough.
Shayla is last. She talks about how awesome she is and how she's been stepping up every week with new tricks and stunts. And then spraining her ankle, so maybe dial it back a bit with the stunts, hmm? Shayla and Mario are dancing to "Poker Face," but a really terrible Dance Your Ass Off back-up singers version of it. Shayla does a great job of showing off her long legs and keeping them nice and straight. Lisa appears to be in awe from the rhinestone egg. Shayla ends it with Mario holding her upside-down and her boobs somehow not falling out of her dress. Mayte says that Shayla embodied the tango for her. Lisa continues to make implications about Shayla and Mario's possible behind-the-scenes relationship and also loved it. Danny says Shayla has a "quiet confidence" that makes her performances even better. Looks like 3 tens for Shayla! She gets on the scale and is devastated to lose just 2.4 pounds, although that's still 1.31 percent of her body weight so it's not too too bad.
