Merely one week after having to dance for his life against Gavin DeGraw in the bottom two, Jaleel White is back on top of the Dancing With the Stars heap.
Tying for first in last night's Motown Week performances, White and Kym Johnson danced the cha cha to The Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg."
White admitted during rehearsal, "I've definitely been feeling a lot of stress this week and it's taken its toll on me." You wouldn't know it after this:
"You're back," head judge Len Goodman announced, proudly.
Bruno Tonioli, never one to hold back, added, "That was biggest sizzler of the season! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and you've come back big time."
Carrie Ann Inaba was the final judge to weigh in on the former Family Matters actor, saying, "Consider the A game brought to the table. Welcome back."
For Jaleel, who has battled tabloid adversity in the form of accusations by Bridget Hardy, as well as the standard DWTS scrutiny, it was a triumphant return indeed.
Sitting atop Monday's Dancing With the Stars scores, he's all but secured a place in the next round. How far do you think he can make it this spring?
