Dancing With the Stars Review: Guilty Pleasures Abound

by at . Comments

Karina Smirnoff fell, Chelsea Kane shined and Kendra Wilkinson shook it up real good last night on Dancing With the Stars' "guilty pleasure night" Monday.

Taking a spill that sent herself and Ralph Macchio tumbling from the top, Karina Smirnoff's fall was the second major professional mishap of the season.

Was it worse than Maksim Chmerkovskiy's a few weeks back? He and Kirstie Alley recovered fine then, and Karina and Ralph appeared to do the same.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Kane and Romeo proved they're contenders and that Kirstie, Ralph and Hines Ward don't have a clear monopoly on the top scores.

Romeo lived up to his moniker with Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," while Chelsea rocked "Walking On Sunshine" in a yellow dress and glasses.

Kendra Wilkinson also found her element with a samba that made her stripper past actually look like an asset, and probably survived another week.

Watch Chelsea and Kendra below, then check out Monday's leaderboard ...

Here are the night's scores, with the typical logjam at the top and total question marks as far as who's getting eliminated on Dancing With the Stars:

  • Romeo and Chelsie Hightower (Waltz): 28
  • Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas (Quickstep): 28
  • Hines Ward and Kym Johnson (Viennese Waltz): 27
  • Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Samba): 26
  • Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel (Samba): 25
  • Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff (Paso Doble): 24
  • Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke (Tango): 22

What do you think? Who's going home? Who's safe as can be?
