Evan Lysacek and Nicole Scherzinger are the clear frontrunners this season on Dancing with the Stars, and led the pack with top two scores again in week four.
Perhaps because of their consistently terrific performances, we're almost taking them for granted at this point. Monday night's third-highest finisher, however?
Telling Pamela Anderson to "dance for the ballroom, not the bedroom," as Bruno did, is a lost cause. She is what she is, and that is actually a decent dancer.
Grinding on and looking poised to mount Damian Whitewood at a moment's notice, Pam still managed to be Pam and earn high praise from the DWTS judges.
Len said her rumba was "understated and had sophistication," while Bruno had to admit that Pam's "elegance and refinement can still be drop dead sexy!"
Pamela Anderson brings the hotness ... and technical aptitude.
The dance genres of "Passion Night" were tangos and rumbas, and the challenge twofold - on this night, the scoring system doubled, with certain moves required.
In the "Double Score Showdown," each pair could earn a maximum of 60 points (30 for technique, 30 for performance). Did anyone approach that gold standard?

Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya (Tango)
Score: Technical: 26 (9-8-9). Performance: 26 (9-8-9).
Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough (Rumba)
Score: Technical: 25 (9-8-8). Performance: 25 (8-8-9).
Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood (Rumba)
Score: Technical: 23 (7-8-8). Performance: 24 (8-7-9).
Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke (Rumba)
Score: Technical: 21 (7-6-8). Performance: 23 (8-7-8).
Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Tango)
Score: Technical: 18 (6-6-6). Performance: 21 (7-7-7).
Potentially in trouble
Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower (Tango)
Score: Technical: 19 (6-7-6). Performance: 19 (7-6-6).
Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel (Rumba)
Score: Technical: 18 (6-6-6). Performance: 18 (6-6-6).
Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska (Rumba)
Score: Technical: 15 (5-5-5). Performance: 18 (6-6-6).
Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani (Tango)
Score: Technical: 14 (4-5-5). Performance: 18 (6-6-6).
So who's going home tonight? Only Kate Gosselin could set the bar so low that the judges would term last night's mediocrity her "breakthrough," but such is life.
Even Tony wants her gone. But don't hold your breath, man.
If the dreadful efforts put forth the previous two weeks didn't get her kicked off, she'll probably stick around this week too. That means Aiden Turner is in trouble.
We'd also be sweating if we were Niecy Nash and Jake Pavelka. Neither were all that impressive Monday, and both likely lack the fan support of Erin and Maks.
