There wasn’t much dancing to be had on last night’s elimination show, but DWTS creators still managed to fill up two hours of space last night.
In between recaping the premeire night’s dancing scores and comments, music performances by Justin Bieber and Pitbull, viewers also got to see some behind-the-scenes action at the dance rehearsels.
And they were HILARIOUS.
Case in point: Kelly Monaco’s parnter Val Chmerkovskiy had no idea she’s a soap opera star on General Hospital and has been over a decade. When she tells him where she works his response is, “You work in a hospital?” He covers up his blunder with an even bigger one, admitting he doesn’t know much about her since he’s “half” her “age.” Nice flirting moves there, Val.
If you think that little scenario was cringe-worthy, you didn’t witness Chelsie Hightower’s exchange with her partner Helio Castroneves. It’s apparent Chelsie concentrated more on her dance moves in school than her geography because she was surprised Helio knew how to speak Portuguese. Which most Brazilians do, but Chelsie thought he would speak Spanish, even though he’s not from South America. On the bright side, she got the highest score of laughs for the night, even if they were at her expense.
One person who wasn’t laughing was Pamela Anderson. She and her partner Tristan MacManus (who also received the lowest score on debut night) were sent home and will not be returning next week. Says Pamela of the ruling, “I was ready for it. We got the lowest score…But [Tristan and I will] keep dancing. We’re going to dance together again. It doesn’t end here.”
