Dancing With the Stars Week Two: Who's On Top?

by at . Comments

Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 13th season last week, with J.R. Martinez and Chynna Phillips leading the way and Chaz Bono, the first-ever transgendered contestant on the show, holding his own.

Last night was a different story.

Chaz battled knee problems all week and ended up in last place, while Chynna stumbled a bit. J.R. continued to impress, but not enough to occupy the DWTS top spot for a second consecutive week.

That honor went to Ricki Lake.

The former Hairspray star jived her way to a first-place 23, cementing her place as one of the favorites this season. Elsewhere, a number of stars improved significantly upon their opening efforts.

  • Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: 23
  • J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: 22
  • Kristin Cavallari & Mark Ballas: 22
  • Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani: 21
  • Elisabetta Canalis & Val Chmerkovskiy: 21
  • Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: 21
  • Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 21
  • Hope Solo & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 19
  • Carson Kressley & Anna Trebunskaya: 18
  • David Arquette & Kym Johnson: 18
  • Chaz Bono & Lacey Schwimmer: 17
