Some of the premiere’s most-celebrated performers fell to the bottom of the leaderboard on Monday night’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
Taking on the Jive and the Quickstep, the remaining 11 contestants learned that they can only ride their personalities so far. Early crowd-pleasers Carson Kressley and Chaz Bono, in particular, failed to impress the judges with their technique.
“Your charm can only take you so far,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told the injured Bono, “but it doesn’t cover that fact that you didn’t dance quickly and this is a Quickstep.”
Bono earned the lowest score of the night (17), with Kressley and David Arquette only a point ahead of him with 18.
Two of last week’s weaker links, on the other hand, seemed to really turn things around. Both Elisabetta Canalis and Nancy Grace scored 21.
So who’s going home? The scores say it’s one of the three gentlemen with the lowest scores, but it seems a bit premature to say goodbye to any one of them. Tuesday’s results could bring the first surprise elimination of the season.
