Another member of the “Dancing With the Stars” cast joined the 10 club Monday (May 2).

Ralph Macchio, who started the season strong but had faltered some in subsequent weeks, grabbed one of the highest scores Monday night with his quick-step routine with Karina Smirnoff. The judges had nearly universal praise for the dance, particularly for his footwork on the difficult dance.

Macchio also earned his first 10 of the season, from guest judge Donnie Young, and his total of 36 (combined with 30 from the group routines earlier in the show) tied him with Hines Ward for the highest score of the night.

We’re with the judges too — it was clearly one of the night’s best performances. What did you think? Does this mean that Macchio is once again a favorite?
