Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Good (Nicole), The Bad (Kate), and The Hot, Hot, Hot (Erin & Jake)!

by at . Comments

With each passing week, Evan Lysacek and Nicole Scherzinger look more like the like cream of the crop, making everyone else feel like they're dancing for third.

Dancing with the Stars saw its highest individual score of the season last night, courtesy of the Pussycat Dolls frontwoman's "Tango perfection" as Bruno said.

She was just one point short of technical perfection, posting a 29. That was good enough to beat Evan's 27 in the Rumba, hardly a shabby performance itself.

Then we had everyone else. Uptight stiff Jake Pavelka actually loosened up a bit, channeling pilot Tom Cruise (fittingly) in Top Gun on the show's "Movie Night."

Jake with no pants? Nice, if only to make Vienna Girardi jealous of 20 million viewers. Erin Andrews remained clothed, but finished just behind The Bachelor.

At the bottom of the barrel, there was this debacle ...

More Bad Dancing

No, no, no.

Kate Gosselin is so bad at dancing, she obviously received the lowest score, though we wonder if other scores might be skewed to bring them closer to hers.

Cases in point: Neither Neicy Nash nor Chad Ochocinco's routines were that bad, yet they sit firmly in Kate's range, rather than the middle tier. Is the fix in?

You be the judge. Last night's scores and pics after the jump ...

THE ELITE
  • Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough (Tango) - Score: 29 (10, 9,10).
  • Evan Lysacek & Anna (Rumba) - Score: 27 (9,9,9).

SECOND TIER

  • Jake Pavelka & Chelsie Hightower (Cha-Cha) - Score: 23 (8,7,8).
  • Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Jive) - Score: 22 (7,7,8).
  • Pamela Anderson & Damian Whitewood (Quickstep) - Score: 21 (7,6,8).

IN DANGER

  • Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel (Jive) - Score: 18 (6,6,6).
  • Chad Ochocinco & Cheryl Burke (Quickstep) - Score: 18 (6,6,6).
  • Kate Gosselin & Tony Dovolani (Foxtrot) - Score: 15 (5,5,5).

So who's going home tonight? Even with Kate at the bottom yet again, she is probably safe. For whatever reason, people really want to keep Kate on.

That leaves Neicy Nash and Chad Ochocinco at risk, and we also wouldn't be all that surprised to see Pamela Anderson (not deservingly) get the boot.

PLEASE!!!KATE IS RUINING HER KIDS LIFES, THE KIDS ARE NOT THAT CUTE, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN THEY GROW UP? ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE KIDS SO THEY CAN BE ON A REALITY SHOW? KATE NEEDS TO FACE REALITY AND GO BACK TO NURSING AND SHOW HER KIDS WHAT LIFE IS REALLY LIKE. I THINK SHE IS A LOSER, SHE IS REALLY PUTTING HER KIDS MENTAL HEALTH IN JEOPARDY.....ONLY TIME WILL TELL...

Kate please go, please do something nice and just leave if you are not voted off. Get a job and do something with your life instead of using your kidsfor money. I liked the way you said that they look forward to watching you on Mondays. You wanted to tug on the heart strings of moms didnt you???

I support Kate mostly because i get mad at people thinking they have right to judge someone they personally do not know and think all the tabloid crap is "real truth". She is attempting to support her kids and make the most money while she's in pubic eye; at least she's not living on welfare! Mothers have right to work at anything legal they want to and plenty of corporate types use nannies and all the house-hold help they can afford while they travel for biz. But if Kate isn't even going to make best efforts anymore she needs to get off DWTS. She has new book and new TV shows to promote. Also, she always wears the ugliest costumes! It is time for her to move on. I have been watching DWTS only because of her and Jake. Why don't all of the sexy-type women on there just dance in the nude and fornicate on the dance floor. This isn't really a show about dancing. It's a show about sexing.

omg!!! Kate sucks sooo bad she's not getting better and if she stays on what's going to happen when she has to do two dances??? We are all going to have to watch two crappy dances instead of somebody else who deserves to be there. Also she complains that she spent all her energy with her kids, wow who cares Evan is on tour now for skating and has to do both!! Such a complainer she better get kicked off I'm sick of having her walk around the dance floor.

It's going to be a repeat of last year (Donnie "I suck at dancing" Osmond)won just because people liked him more, NOT because he can dance. Kate will place high this year just because she sucks so bad people are voting for her for spite (George Lopez and co.) The people that vote for these losers are the one that are killing the show. They must pay pretty good bacause I can't believe that the pros will still do this show. If Kate wins I guarantee that the pros will be fed up and that this will be the end of the show. I guarantee that I will never watch again!

THE JAKE AND KATE SHOW, NOT DANCING WITH THE STARS. JAKED CANNOT DANCE AT ALL, HE RUNS OR WALKS, AND HOW IN GODS NAME HE GOT A HIGHER SCORE THAN ERIN AND MAKS I WILL NEVER KNOW. HE IS JAKE THE FLAKE. AND HOW HE SPEAKS TO CHELSEY IS UNCALLED FOR. HE APPARENTLY CANNOT TAKE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. AND KATE SHE HAS TO GO. SHE CANNOT DANCE AT ALL AND THE WHINNING AND WHOA IS ME IS GETTING OLD. I WATCH THE SHOW FOR THE DANCING AND NOT LISTENING TO HER OR JAKE. PLEASE LET KATE GO HOME TONIGHT AND JAKE NEXT WEEK.

Don't get me wrong, Erin's body is to die for BUT her face is another story. Does anyone else find her face ugly?? I guess I say that because she's always talked about as so pretty but she looks like a guy to me.

Its so fixed!!! you know Kate will be in the top five at least!!! Between the show rigging her scores and votes, her fanbase voting...she is good to go far for whatever reason

It's FIXED. Kate didn't deserve anything higher than a three. They gave her a 5 just for walking around the stage. At least Niecy and Chad DANCED.

I'm really trying to give Kate a chance and hope she gets better each week, but.........she still looks soooo stiff...its like watching her in slow motion! Its horrible to watch. She just won't loosen up!

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
