There will be no eliminations this week, all couples will move on to week 2.
Judges comments on Doug’s DWTS Premiere Foxtrot: Carrie Ann: “You did it but I could see you struggling, you had a few stumbles but you did go. People love underdogs here, but it is week one.” Len: “It had sparkle, it had gleam, next week you are doing Paso Doble, that is going to be your dance, come back strong.” Bruno: It was choppy waters, but work on the timing, the musicality, it can only get better.”
Judges scores: Carrie Ann: 5 Len: 5 Bruno: 5 = Total 15/30
