J.R. Martinez Slips Slightly on Dancing With the Stars

by at . Comments

Call it the DWTS version of the Sports Illustrated or Madden curse.

Actor and Iraq veteran J.R. Martinez, who has tied Ricki Lake for first place in previous weeks and held the top spot when she hasn't, fell a bit short of expectations last night, right after appearing in a glowing cover story for People magazine.

Nevertheless, his score of 25 was far from shabby - even if it his recent efforts made it feel "substandard" as Len said - and he likely won't be punished by viewers for the group dance that netted him a modest 23 for 48 points in all.

Take a look at J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff's routine Monday:
