Week 5 meant Guilty Pleasures week, and Melissa and Tony performed a Tango to "Toxic" by Britney Spears. Melissa was excited during rehearsals since she had never done a Tango before and really wanted to take this dance to the top of the leaderboard. The judges liked the dance, but as the competition was getting more intense their good dance wasn't great enough for first place.
Carrie Ann: 9
Carrie Ann loved Melissa's character, commenting, "Tonight you were absolutely gritty, absolutely in the character."
