Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff were eliminated during tonight’s elimination episode on Dancing with the Stars All-Stars. If you missed the results show we recapped it here for you!
On last night’s show Apolo and his professional partner Karina danced the Big Top Jazz and the Rumba to Man in the Mirror – Apolo and Karina’s first dance was awkward and they lost their footing in the beginning. The three judges gave differing critique, with Carrie Ann calling it “really sloppy”. Len awarded 9 points, Bruno awarded 9.5 points, and Carrie Ann awarded 8.5 points. The total for their first dance was 27 – the second lowest score for the first dance, and a below average score for the season.
Their second dance, however, picked up the pace and saw them being awarded a total score. Len thought it was “fabulous”, Bruno thought they “nailed it”, and Carrie Ann said, “That’s what I am talking about, you don’t have to ever dance in this competition!” GRAND TOTAL SCORE – 57 – THE SECOND LOWEST SCORE OF THE NIGHT
Whenever reality television show ideas dry up, they bring back previous contestants to compete on an All-Star show off. This television method has been implemented on America’s Next Top Model, Survivor, Bachelor/ette, Big Brother and millions of lesser important late night reality television productions. This was the first time in DWTS history that an All-Stars season was being produced – it was an attempt to rekindle the famous DWTS fire and bring back viewers who lost interest in the show for the past five seasons. However, the downtrodden 15th season of the popular show might have been the swan song we’ve all been waiting for.
What do you think, was their elimination uncalled for? Were they eliminated before given a chance? Let us know in the comments below.
