Dancing With the Stars Week Five: Back to the '80s

at . Comments

J.R. Martinez, Chynna Phillips and Ricki Lake looked like the celebs to beat from the beginning of this season of Dancing With the Stars. Last week, Chynna was surprisingly sent packing.

Might Ricki meet a similar fate after a middle-of-the-road effort last night?

We doubt it, but you never know, and she didn't do herself any favors on '80s night. J.R. occupied the top spot again by a healthy margin, with two other gents tied for second place.

Those gents? The surging Rob Kardashian and David Arquette!

Kim's little brother is really becoming a pleasant surprise this fall, trying harder and harder and getting better and better. He's in it to win it, he says, and his dancing backs that up.

Arquette, meanwhile, is not one for the faster, step-heavy routines, but he brings the passion to the romantic dances like last night! All three of those guys, plus Ricki, should be safe.

As for the other four dancers, all bets are currently off ...
