Next up are Maks and Kirstie versus Chelsea and Mark. Chelsea and Mark are first, and they look good. There's a little glitch on a turn, but their ending is spot-on and really punctuates the routine. Kirstie and Maks are up next. I'm pretty sure they just revive a piece of their original cha cha routine, and it seems way under rehearsed. Kirstie doesn't know where to put her arms and misses a few steps. This one's got to go to Chelsea and Mark. As an aside: can someone tell Mark that it's time he starts wearing big boy pants that go all the way to the ground? Those short pants with the colored socks are so smurfy. Bruno thinks Chelsea was clean and sharp, but Kirstie had great musicality. Carrie Ann agrees they are opposites, because Chelsea is sharp staccato, while Kirstie is sensual and voluptuous. Len thought Chelsea was clean and crisp, but Kirstie had good hip action and great rhythm. The judges claim it's a tough decision, and yet, all three vote for Chelsea and Mark.
The winners find out their song right now, and have only the commercial break to work out the routine. While Tom explains this, Maks is trying to distract Tom by touching and kissing him. That won't work, Maks. Tom is a professional. Oh. Oh, God. And then it gets so awkward that I actually had to fast forward through part of this because I wanted to throw up. So they go to Brooke, who is with the two couples. Each gets a song, and then Brooke is supposed to do a coin toss to determine who gets to decide the order. Except Brooke doesn't understand how coin tosses work. Hines calls tails, and heads come up, and Brooke is like, "Okay, Hines! First or second?" Hines tries to go with it and says they'll go second and then everyone is staring at each other and I'm covering my face with a pillow because it's TERRIBLE. Someone is obviously screaming at Brooke via headset. Why did they let Brooke do the coin toss! Finally Hines rescues the moment and Brooke realizes her mistake (or they told her via headset). Chelsea chooses to go second and everyone laughs to dissipate the awkwardness. Whew! I seriously broke out in flop sweat just watching. Ouch. Fire Brooke Burke.
