Latin Night of Dancing with the Stars featured several 10s, a wet Argentine Tango, and a spicy performance by Pitbull, Flo Rida and Lunch Money Lewi$ (who sported a waffle brooch). But not everyone left the ballroom Monday wanting to Salsa into the night.
After a blah blah Cha Cha, Amber Rose became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show. Her ouster came after a particularly damaging rehearsal package, when she’s seen walking out on her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy after she couldn’t learn the steps.
“It was such an amazing experience and people don’t know this about me, but I’m really shy in a lot of ways,” Rose told host Tom Bergeron after she was ousted. “I think that showed on the ballroom floor. I tried my best.”
It was obvious during the rehearsal package that the competition was weighing heavy on Rose, who walked out on Chmerkovskiy after he lost his cool and punched the mirror when she wasn’t following his direction.
“You just did everything super perfect, you are not going home. You are going from the beginning to the end,” he protested as she began to cry. “If you’re done, then we are not going to be ready. Amber, I’m not going to let you go. You have to do it for you, you have to do it for me.”
She bugged out, anyway.
The duo clearly rallied on Monday, but their Cha Cha — performed to “Bla Bla Bla Cha Cha Cha” by Petty Booka — only earned 28 out of a possible 40. So long, gal!
The night’s biggest highlight was a very moist Argentine Tango performed by Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko. Dancing to Selena Gomez’ “Hands to Myself,” the duo borrowed a page from Flashdance and performed half of the dance while soaked.
“Now that is chemistry!” exclaimed judge Julianne Hough. “You set the record for the hottest Argentine Tango.”
“Pulsating with lust!” added judge Bruno Tonioli. “Driven by unsatiable desire!”
