More results! Maria and Derek got spanked for not dancing in hold enough. But the other judges more than made up for it with 10s. Derek knew they might get in "trouble" for their samba, although I don't think he predicted the 7 from Len. Even the other dancers were shocked at that one. Rewatching Melissa's dance from last night, she really screwed up A LOT in the beginning and she knew it. Melissa has to give a confessional while sitting in between Maks and Val, shirtless. They both kiss her cheek and she asks for a cigarette. That actually made me laugh. Although all I could think about was how sweat y they probably are.
So with Maria and Derek and Melissa and Maks on stage, which couple is in jeopardy? Maria looks terrified. Maria and Derek are safe, so that means Melissa and Maks are in jeopardy along with Katherine and Mark.
And it's time for the final elimination of the night. Will it be Melissa or Katherine? It will really be a shame if Katherine goes before Melissa. Even if I think she's boring, Melissa has had like half a decent dance this entire season. I can't imagine that Katherine has the fanbase that Melissa does in this country, though. So who is it, show? Tell me! Melissa and Maks are going home. That's fair. As I stated in yesterday's recap, she's been terrible. She did much better last night but it's too little, too late. Katherine is just sobbing.
Melissa is crying too, and Brooke reveals that it's her birthday. I used to have a headshot of Melissa Gilbert on my bedroom wall during the Little House years. Of course, she's unrecognizable these days and after reading her book, I don't admire her quite as much as I once did. I just got a weird vibe. Anyway, she is pro and says that she's so happy to have made it as far as she did. Maks has kind words for her, and they take the stage to say goodbye along with Roshon and Chelsie. And that's it! I really hope Donald comes back and takes this whole thing. I'm officially on Team Driver now.
