'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Six Elimination

by Katy Kroll, posted Apr 27th 2011 2:40AM
Wow. Just "wow." That's all I have to say about this week's 'Dancing With the Stars' results show.

OK, I'm kidding. I do have more to say ... because Guilty Pleasures week literally blew my mind. A pre-show Hanson bonus? 'American Idol' castoff Pia Toscano and rumored boyfriend Mark Ballas performing together? A New Kids on the Block-Backstreet Boys super-group mash-up (aka NKOTBSB, as they call themselves)? Cha-ching!

The over-the-topness of the night softened the blow of the big WTF moment when it came down to the elimination. Really, voters? You saved Kendra Wilkinson once again? Shame on you!

Caught in the crossfire of Kendra's busty, booty-shakin' stripper-esque performance was poor Chris Jericho, who danced his last dance Monday night after pulling in the lowest scores. This was the third time he sweated it out under the spotlight as one of the bottom two, so it wasn't a total shock he went home. But, seriously, Kendra should have been the one who got the boot.

Admittedly, even if Kendra had been kicked off this week, chances are Chris would go in the next round. So, what was truly troublesome was that personal favorite Ralph Macchio found himself in the bottom two for the first time.

Ralph started out so strong this season, but now each week he seems to take a step backward. Yeah, this week's setback technically wasn't his fault, since his partner, Karina Smirnoff, was the one who messed up, but overall it's looking less and less like he'll walk away with the mirrorball trophy. Though there's still hope he'll make it to the finals at least.

But let's get back to the Kendra situation, because it's really upsetting that she keeps skirting elimination. For some reason, the judges and viewers want her to stick around. However, at this point, it's really all about the show's producers pushing her forward each week.

Her safe status became obvious during a special hour-long recap that aired before the results show. The writing was on the wall as soon as a group of female pros shimmied onto the dance floor wearing the same skimpy outfit she wore during her 'Livin' la Vida Loca' routine, and judge Bruno Tonioli picked her as the season's "dark horse."

Then the judges collectively chose her lead-footed table dance as their favorite performance of the week. Tough nut Len Goodman even called it "unbelievable" and one of the series' "hottest dances ever." Are you kidding me?

I had nothing against Kendra before she joined this season of 'DWTS,' but her bad attitude in week four and the way the judges have consistently swooned over her sloppy footwork has made me a hater. If she doesn't go home next week, this season is doomed.

Do you agree? Take the poll below and comment on whether you think Chris deserved to go.

'Dancing With the Stars' airs Mondays at 8PM ET and Tuesdays at 9PM ET on ABC.

Does any one know the name of the song Ralph and the group did the cha-cha dance too?

It's hard to argue the Kendra did the best of this particular week. The Samba was made for her (of all of the remaining contestants except one) and, given the theme (Guilty Pleasures) and the song choice (Livin' La Vida Loca), it was a done deal for her if she could shake her bootie and remain on the beat with any kind of decent choreography (which Louis did provide). The pure T & A of it sold well and we all know that T & A sells well on TV these days. I'm sure the producers were doing cartwheels that Kendra was not voted off after that performance. I think Chris deserved to stay more than Kendra but after she knocked that dance out of the park, it would be unimaginable that she wasn't voted in for another week ... unless those who abhor the "sex sells" approach to modern entertainment. I'm not a huge fan of that approach but it is hard to deny the facts.

Pia can hit incredible notes but her voice just does not draw me in the way others in her same "genre" or "style." Charice Pempengo and Kelly Clarkson both have similar ranges and the same demographic. There's always room for more than one singer in a category but to be a category-killer you have to be a real standout from your contemporaries and I just will be surprised if Pia can pull that off. I think Charice has a much better chance in this regard. Her voice is richer and more expressive and her connection to the music seems more credible.

It should have been Kendra leaving instead of Chris. Kendra is lead footed and has nothing going for her other than her
boobs and her behind.Carrie was right when she insinuated that kendra has no class. Even Lewie told Kendra that he was angry when she said that she didnt care anything about class. It sure shows. She also has a crude mouth on her, onweek saying she was emotional because it was her period. The next week telling Lewie that God did not give her the boobs . No kidding !! Give her a pole and she will be right at home . Im sure Len got a good view looking up her skimpy costume. What a pig she is .

I absolutely hate Dancing With the Stars. They definitely play favoritism and even though I am not the one to make everything into a race thing, if she was a female black celebrity, Len def wouldn't have let that **** slide . he would have called it to hip hop. Her footwork was horrible and u would never see that much ass shaking in the actual ballroom competition. This show makes me sick and if I ever see Len Goodman, i'm gonna tell him that he is a racist bastard who doesn't know good dancing if it kicked him in the ass...they are lucky that I love Romeo and he is the only reason why I keep watching this garbage

Kendra may be cute, but she has an attitude that's off putting. Who knows who her voting public is--probably a million teenage boys, or younger. She needed to have left before the last few "kiss-offs". Petra and Sugar ray were getting more confidence. Chris Jericho had one "not so great night", but overall could very well have been in the finals and he's so good to look at!.

As for the judges, Carrie Ann is the only one with any logical critique behind her comments. Len, though probably right in his comments, is just too harsh and condescending. Bruno, tho funny at times, needs to be medicated. I mean, there's enthusiastic and then there's over the top enthusiastic. He can also be somewhat vile (as he was towards Kendra after her performance atop the desk on Monday night). I was even embarassed for her (just a little) but what he said and did was uncalled for.
