Diane Mizota: I never thought I'd say this, but thank goodness Lil' Kim is in this competition! Not only does she continue to grow every week, but her costumes provide just that extra bit of intrigue! She had her second near nip-slip of the season when her nipple petal/pasty was trying to escape her overextended bra after a lively jive. Even Tom Bergeron took notice, blocking her from the cameras as she remedied her wardrobe malfunction. Sexy cop occupational hazard, I suppose.
Chuck and Julianne's rumba was hot, but their real life couple status rendered it a little more explicit than enticing. A little too much Red Shoe Diaries and not quite enough left to the imagination. And may I just add, there's nothing sexy about a man in a lace shirt open to the navel. NOTHING.
Shawn, Melissa and Gilles remained in the top positions with solid performances as ever.
LT was slightly less wooden than previously and Ty narrowly escaped elimination after struggling with his jive.
That left Steve-O as the latest to be sent packing. Oh, Steve-O. Let's reminisce. The triumph over injury. The newfound sobriety. The mime outfit. Making out with your dog. You proved to be so much more than just a guy who attaches live baby crocodiles to his nipples, you showed us real heart and sincere effort. Now, who's left to delight us with phrases like, "Manstruate" and "Cheetah print banana hammock"? Sigh. You may not have been the most gifted dancer in this competition, but you were certainly one of the most intriguing, interesting and endearing, and you will be missed.
