On last week’s episode of DWTS Riker performed a Viennese Waltz routine and the judges scored Riker a 39/40 for her performance. Julianne loved her performance and had this to say, “I am so blown away this week, each week you have gotten better, tonight there was something in control and you were vulnerable, that was your best dance.”
