Dancing With the Stars Season 5 Episode 0 (11/12/07)
On this week's Dancing with the Stars...
- IndyCar champ Helio Castroneves finally scored his first perfect 30 with his dynamic, fun quickstep. It’s as if he’s been drafting, saving his energy for the push to the finals. And it began this evening.
- Close behind is Melanie Brown. She scored a 27 on her sharp, powerful tango and a 29 for her very fun mambo.
Helio scored a 27 on his first dance — the paso doble — which also was impressive.
- Jennie Garth started slowly with a 24 for her jive. Like Jane Seymour last week, the actress can’t quite pull off the more energetic, playful dances, but does well with the more serious ones. She got a 26 for her foxtrot.
-Marie Osmond, who’s father passed away last week, may get the sympathy vote this week, but got little sympathy from the judges. Her rumba filled with emotion only scored a 24; and her jive got 25. She needs to be voted out finally.
- As mediocre as Marie was, she wasn’t as forgettable as our favorite, Cameron Matheson, who got a 27 for his Viennese waltz and a 24 for his cha cha cha. Might he be in trouble?
