One All-Star couple must exit the ballroom after just one dance this season. Of course, Emmitt and Cheryl get to do their first dance twice, as they are the judges’ pick to do an encore of their hot cha cha. After hearing some stories about why the stars came back to the ballroom, it’s time to get into the elimination process.
Shawn & Derek, Apolo & Karina and Joey & Kym learn they are safe. But Bristol & Mark are in jeopardy. Helio & Chelsie are coming back next week, as are Kelly & Val. Drew & Anna, however are in jeopardy. Emmitt & Cheryl, Gilles & Peta and Sabrina & Louis all learn they are safe. Pamela & Tristan are in jeopardy, while Melissa & Tony and Kirstie & Maks will live to dance another day.
Bristol & Mark, Drew & Anna and Pamela & Tristan take center stage to learn their fate. When all the votes were tallied, it’s Pamela and Tristan who must leave the ballroom. Pamela gives a gracious goodbye and promises to keep dancing.
