It just goes to show you that at the sticky end of reality TV competitions, no one is safe. Maria Menounos and her professional dance partner Derek Hough were eliminated at the semi-final stage, despite near perfect scores taking them to the top of the leader board the night before.
The different between first and last placed couple was only three points so it makes the competition interesting going in to next week’s final
The judges chose to see William Levy and Cheryl Burke’s Samba again because it was absolutely perfect. Then it was on to the results.
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas were quickly announced as safe, as were William Levy and Cheryl Burke – a relief as it would have been a bit embarrassing if he got eliminated right after the judges asked to see his ‘perfect’ dance again!
But what’s that? In jeopardy were last night’s highest scoring couple, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough, joined by Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd. The latter two were who I really expected to leave the competition last night. But no, we had to say goodbye to our highest scoring couple with the judges, even though they scored a perfect 30 score for their Argentine Tango.
What do you think to Maria and Derek being eliminated? Who’s your favorite to win the mirror ball trophy now? (Mine hasn’t changed all season and she’s still in it to win it!)
