Judges comments on Ryan Lochte’s DWTS Season 23 Week 5 Salsa:
Pitbull: Let me tell you something firsts of all, you guys performed to Celia Cruz, the Queen of Cuba. My favorite part was with the neon paint and for that I am going with an 8. Wait, am I not supposed to say that? I’ll say it again, 8!
Julianne: I won’t tell you what score I am giving you, but you came out with so much commitment, the spray tan and neon lights. I was expecting a speedo. I’m so impressed with you, you really came out here and you nailed it.
Bruno: Dressed to impress, always work! That was a vibrant Salsa, it really worked! 27 tequilas later, but you enter into the spirit of it, FUN! And, that was what it is all about.
Carrie Ann: It was a great way to start off latin night, but I have to say the musicality was not that great tonight. I am telling it like it is, I’m sorry!
Judges scores: Carrie Ann: 7 Pitbull: 8 Julianne: 8 Bruno: 7 Total: 30/40 – Vote for Ryan Lochte & Cheryl Burke at 1-800-868-3411.
