Dancing with the Stars Episode Recap: Monday, April 26, 2010


The remaining seven couples luck out with two routines on Dancing with the Stars. Each pair must perform either the samba or the Argentine tango before they all face off in the swing marathon. How did everyone fare? Find out below!


It's a shame Kate missed out on learning two routines, says the masochist in me. After last season's successful (albeit cluttered) mambo marathon, we get the swing marathon this time, and I, for one, can't wait - if only to hear Tom's awesome golf-announcer voice.


But first, the main routines:


Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower: Samba


Chelsie takes Jake to meet samba dancers to get into the spirit, where he learns to shimmy and shake his tail feathers. Jake's goal this week is to close the gap between him and the the leaders, Nicole and Evan, because, as he admits, he's not as great of a dancer. Pants are on this week, but Jake's shirt is unbuttoned. Is he the first male on Dancing not to wax his chest? Maybe it gives Chelsie better grip as she repeatedly pushes off his chest. Jake's got the hips working, but is sort of overdoing it to a degree. Dude really needs to lay off the caffeine before he hits the floor. His footwork is also a little stiff for such a chipper dance. It's all going fairly well until he twirls into a step by the judges' table. Will he ever dance a clean routine? Len likes that he's showing more confidence and polish, but wants him to get into rhythm of the dance. Bruno says he lacks bounce and didn't wiggle correctly aside from his pelvic gyrations. Carrie Ann loves that he performs at the max, but wants him to ride the music "like the ocean." What? In Jake and Chelsie's defense, who wants to ride that crap music?

Score: 21
