DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Has a Comeback, Kaitlyn Bristowe Overcomes Injury, One Couple Is Eliminated

On Tuesday evenings second night of competition in the new season of Dancing with the Stars, three former soap stars took to the ballroom dance floor in a night which also featured for the first time this season … the viewers vote counting for 50% of the total score, and one couple being sent home.

The “drama” of the episode was if former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ankle would be OK enough for her to dance her routine.  With her being placed at the end of the show and then “wowing” everyone – it was hard to know how bad the injury was, but, as she detailed on the show she did receive a cortisone shot before performing and changed shoes to help her get through.

Meanwhile, Chrishell Stause, the former AMC, DAYS and Y&R star, currently on the reality hit, Selling Sunset, showed improvement, while ex- Passions, Desperate Housewives and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe continued to bring the heat – although the judges want him to dance with less use of his facial expressions – and Daytime Emmy winner Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marley, AW)  continued to be having the time of her life from her performances.

Here’a what went down…

Kaitlyn Bristowe and partner Artem Chigvintsev (Foxtrot): Performing to Leann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” and with the uncertainty of if she would dance at all, Bristowe, who wanted to be a dancer, got major kudos from the judges for her dramatic lines and moves fluidly through the dance floor and closed the night – combined total score of last week and this week 42 out of 60

Anne Heche and partner Keo Mostepe (Foxtrot): Performing to One Republic’s “Counting Stars”,  Heche revealed this was one of her favorite songs, and she also revealed this dance was to honor her two sons.  Although the judges did not feel Heche delivered as strongly with this performance than in the season opener, Anne still looked like she was enjoying every second of being on the floor – combined total score 36 out of 60

Chrishell Stause and partner Gleb Savchenko (Rumba):  Stause showed her vulnerability including sharing a story from her childhood past.  Then then duo danced to “This Is Me” from the Greatest Showman.  During the performance, Stause looked more fluid on the floor than the previous week and was praised for her improvement  – Combined total score 31 out of 60

Jesse Metcalfe and partner Sharna Burgess (Foxtror): This duo performed to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and played up their chemistry on the floor. The critique from the judges had more to do with Jesse not looking so intense, and also his posture, but all told they did well – Combined score was 38 out of 60.

Now to the first elimination:  Carole Baskin and Charles Oakley were the celebrities in the bottom two.   It was up to the judges to decide which celebrity would be saved.  Bruno picked Charles, but Carrie Ann picked Carole, leaving Derek to cast the deciding vote … and he saved Carole.

So what did you think of how Chrishell, Anne and Jesse did on last night’s DWTS?  Did the right celeb get sent packing? What did you think of Kaitlyn’s dance and ankle injury? Comment below, but first check out their dances.

They keep announcing Heche as “Emmy-nominated” when she is in fact an Emmy winner for Another World! Very ridiculous that no one caught that…I actually wonder if Heche even remembers that she’s an Emmy winner.

How can anyone forget how fantastic Anne was on AW??? Yes, they need to say Emmy Winner. Honestly, I have fast forwarded through some of the show (Tyra) so I may have missed that. Will be on the lookout next week.

Chrishell was fantastic. She really seemed like she enjoyed and connected with the dance. Good for her. I was nervous for her though in the eliminations as she was announced safe towards the end.

I was a bit surprised Monica (cheer coach) was safe as I didn’t enjoy her dance.

I am fast forwarding through a lot of Tyra. Her questions don’t seem to hit the mark and it seems sometimes like the stars can’t hear her or maybe they’re just in the afterglow of their dance.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Premieres on Disney+; Who’s Looking Good After Night One of Competition

The aging ballroom-dance competition franchise, Dancing with the Stars, premiered on Monday night in its new home on the Disney+ making it the first live series to hit the streaming service.

This marks the shows 31st season and now viewers will experience a commercial free competition/reality series complete with the producers figuring out ways to kill time to get the dance duos up to the Sky Box to talk with new co-host, Alfonso Ribiero.

Tyra Banks is back in the ballroom as your main host along with judges Carrie Ann, Bruno, Len and Derek. On the season opener, there were some terrific starts by some celebrities and their pro partners, and there were also some not so good ones.

After the first night of dancing, two couples landed in the bottom two – former Real Housewives star, Teresa Giudice and Pasha Pashkov, and Sex and the City actor, Jason Lewis and Peta Murgatroyd.  The judges eventually saved Giudice and sent home Lewis.

However, let’s recap some of the night’s brighter moments which featured: Wayne Brady (Let’s Make a Deal and ex-B&B), Actress Selma Blair, The Bachelorette Gabby Windey and TikTok star, Charli D’Amelio.  All the competitors danced to songs that really gets them going in the premiere.

In the most emotional moment of the night, that brought tears to everyone’s eyes, was the performance of Selma Blair and her pro partner, Sasha Farber who turns out to be her neighbor in real-life.  Blair, who is battling MS and was diagnosed with the disease in 2018, shared her biggest issue with dancing is her problem with balance. However, Selma danced a beautiful Viennese Waltz with Farber and  28 out of 40 score.

TikTok sensation, Charli D’Amelio, has been dancing since she was very young.  She is now 18.  Dancing the Cha-Cha, along with Mark Ballas, proved to be the hit of the night and the producers saved the best for last.  Charli and Mark scored a 32 out of 40.  We should note: Charli’s mom, Heidi is also dancing in the competition.

Wayne Brady wound up in second place after the judges voting with his Cha-Cha; which featured some pop and lock moves with partner, Witney Carson.  Judge Bruno exclaimed: “Welcome to Wayne’s dance floor! Performance level through the roof. You’ve got it and you know what to do with it!”

It’s a big week for “Bachelorette’ Gabby Windey. Tomorrow night is the season finale of her season to find love, but on Monday night, she showed us why she has some moves to be a threat in the competition for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.  In the pre-dance package, we learned Windey was a Denver Broncos cheerleader for five years.  She then danced the Jive with pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy and scored a 28 out of 40.

Don’t count out the first ever drag queen to dance in the competition, Shangela, either!  Dancing with partner Gleb Savchenko, Shangela brought it to the dance floor and the crowd went nuts, scoring 28 out of 40 for their Salsa.

Former 90210 and Days of our Lives star, Trevor Donovan while having a fear of dancing, performed better than expected along with his pro partner Emma Slater, taking on of all things, the Quickstep. Donovan and Slater scored a 21 out of 40, and remained in the competition.

So, who do you think has a solid chance of taking home the Mirror Ball Trophy? What did you think about watching DWTS on Disney+? If you didn’t watch the season premiere tonight, will you check it out on the streaming service? Comment below.

In another move to shake up the ballroom dance floor competition, Dancing with the Stars, it was revealed today on Good Morning America, that Alfonso Ribeiro would now be joining Tyra Banks as co-hosts for its upcoming season.

As previously reported, Dancing with the Stars will stream on Disney+ making it the first live series to be on the platform. The dance show had previously aired on ABC for the past 30 seasons.

Ribeiro is actually a former ‘Mirror Ball’ champ taking it home in season 19, and current host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

There has been no premiere date set for DWTS season 31, but ahead of that, in a statement, Ribeiro shared: “Dancing with the Stars has been such an important part of my life for so many years, and I am ecstatic to officially re-join this tight-knit family as co-host. Tyra and I have a longstanding friendship that I hope will resonate with all of the fans at home as we kick off this new season on Disney+.”

Banks added: “I’ve known Alfonso since I was 19 years old and he always puts a smile on my face whenever I see him. Having such a fun-loving, longtime friend as co-host warms my heart. Plus, he’s won the competition before, so he knows exactly what the stars are going through. Bantering back and forth with him live is going to be so much fun!”

Judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough are also expected to return for season 31.
