Dancing With the Stars Week 6: Weigh in on the Highly Unexpected Results!

Oct 21 2013, 10:00pm CDT | by TV Line

It was “Switch-Up Challenge” night — aka “Hot mess in the ballroom!” — on Week 6 of Dancing With the Stars, a meaningless term which, translated into English, meant that the eight remaining couples were tasked with one new dance and a “surprise” challenge. The latter twist involved an improvised (and thus, rehearsal free) number for crucial bonus points! Have our Season 17 cavalcade of stars ever been more stressed out?

Let’s high-kick right to the highlights:

DANCE OF THE NIGHT: Brant Daugherty’s jaw-dropping tango earned the second “10 from Len” Goodman of the night (and a 28 overall), while Amber Riley’s tango scored perfection from Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli (and showers of boos for Len’s unexpectedly cranky critique). But here’s the top dance of the night:

Elizabeth Berkley Lauren & Valentin Chmerkovskiy: OK, Elizabeth’s wide-eyed, perky blonde perfection can be off-putting, but her ‘fessing up so authentically to her post-Showgirls shame (“I got really good at pretending things were great.”) won me over tonight. That, and her sexy, truly sensational cha cha cha, which led Bruno to kiss her hand (“So sexy it just killed me…it was brilliant!”), and left Carrie Ann (“You were like a white panther, insane!”) literally breathless. Len was equally blown away, and her well-deserved trio of 10’s was the first perfect score of the season.

But now for the moment of truth, tonight’s results:

ELIMINATED
…Nobody!/>

Holy anti-climax! Tonight’s non-elimination was supposedly due to a technical problem during the end of last week’s broadcast in the Eastern and Central time zones, which may have resulted in some votes being cast for the wrong couples. “In fairness, we’ve decided to discard all of the viewer votes and not eliminate anyone this week,” explained a sheepish Tom Bergeron. All of tonight’s scores WILL carry over to next week, however. OK, got that, everyone?

Now it’s your turn. What do you think of tonight’s non-elimination shocker? Were you impressed, distressed, or just confused by the Switch-Up Challenge? And how did Tom get stuck doing that awkward live commentating? Sound off in the comments!
