Mark says it’s not ideal, but they’ll take it. They kind of have to take it. There isn’t really an appeal for the judges’ scores.
Now it’s Hélio and Chelsie dancing a jive. In a not at all scripted moment, Chelsie says that Hélio is known for being fast. That provides a nice segue way into Hélio and Chelsie at the racetrack. Nothing really interesting happens there. Hélio is really flying under the radar.
Again, this just seemed off to me. Maybe I don’t understand the jive at all. I’m sure it was amazing and they’ll get straight 10s. Carrie Ann says something about Hélio’s body catching up with his charm. I have no idea what that means. Len says that he has “style with a smile.” What is with Len and the rhyming tonight? Bruno called it a delicious treat of a jive. Then he twitches a bit. I wonder if Bruno talks like this when he’s just at home. I like to imagine he does.
Carrie Ann – 8
Len – 7.5
Bruno – 7.5 (he didn’t yell the HALF this time, so I just wrote it normally)
Apolo and Karina are dancing their quickstep next. Nothing really interesting happens in their rehearsal. They just rehearse. Stop being normal, Apolo! I can’t make fun of you if you’re not a train wreck!
That was definitely the better of the two quicksteps we’ve seen tonight. Granted, it’s not that hard to be better than Bristol.
Len gives Apolo a gold medal! Bruno says something about hard work. He’s pretty calm through this critique, but I still can’t understand him. Carrie Ann thinks that Apolo put on his competition pants tonight.

Wait, so Sabrina is now called a “singer”? Seriously, the woman released a dance training video! Just call her what she is – a ringer! Sabrina and Louis are dancing a quickstep and have a boring rehearsal just like Apolo and Karina. Then Louis drops Sabrina and her arm hurts. They have to decide whether or not they will keep that move in the dance.
“Black Betty” seems like a weird song choice for a quickstep. Also, what the fuck was up with the water cooler part in the beginning? Was that planned? It would seem kind of stupid seeing as the audience probably didn’t see that part. Also, the smile that Sabrina had on her face the entire time just didn’t fit with the song or the dance. Other than those few style things, the dance was really good. They looked really tight and together. They kept the scary move in at the end and it worked. It also shows us how well Sabrina’s boob tape works.
Bruno compares Sabrina to Ginger Rogers. Carrie Ann screams a lot. Why is she so amazed that Sabrina is good? The woman is a professional dancer. She SHOULD be good. Len loved the upper body control.
