Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 13th season three weeks ago with J.R. Martinez, Chynna Phillips and Ricki Lake looking like they would become the three celebrities to beat this fall.
Last night reinforced this ... for two of the three.
Chynna fell short with a routine so lackluster she apologized for it openly - and may end up in jeopardy tonight if fans don't come to her aid. Her score put her near the bottom Monday.
As for Ricki and J.R., they formed a formidable 1-2 in that order, with Lake delivering without a doubt the best routine of the week and season, a tantalizing tango just shy of perfection.
With 29 points, she led by three over J.R., whose 26 was still good enough for second place by himself. The Iraq War vet and actor is showing he's more than just an inspirational story.
Chaz Bono, meanwhile, turned in his best performance of the season, buoyed by the support of his mom Cher in the audience. How did the rest if the night's scores shake out?
The scores for the fourth night of Dancing With the Stars performances were as follows:
- Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: 29
- J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: 26
- Hope Solo & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 24
- Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 24
- David Arquette & Kym Johnson: 23
- Chaz Bono & Lacey Schwimmer: 21
- Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani: 21
- Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: 21
- Carson Kressley & Anna Trebunskaya: 20
