Dancing with the Stars season 17 is shaping up to be one hot, hot, hot season! There’s definitely going to be some feisty competition in the coming months, as there are a few contestants who not only have the moves and footwork but also possess some natural talent. We don’t know who to root for this season; there are so many awesome celebs, but we’re crossing our fingers for Leah Remini . . . . Because she could probably use a little pick me up after all that Scientology craziness she recently put up with.
Tonight’s the night when we’ll say goodbye to the first couple. There is a new format this season for voting off the dancers — since we only have one night. Beginning with tonight’s episode on Monday, September 23, one couple will be eliminated at the end of the show by combining the judges’ scores from the first round with the public votes.
If you missed last week’s episode, no worries. We recapped the show in full — CLICK HERE. We’re not sure who’ll be heading home tonight, but if the scores give any indication of a dancer’s fate, then Bill Nye (who received the lowest score in the first round) might be unlacing his ballroom shoes and foxtrotting out the door. Below is a list of all the dancers’ info. Be sure to check out their performances (videos). After your review, don’t forget to cast your vote: Who do YOU think will be voted off the show?
