The Highlight Reel! See all the top moments of Latin Night with Dancing with the Stars Double Dips!
New Partner, No Problem: Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas were slated to do a Salsa to “Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar featuring Lucenzo. Unfortunately, Mark was injured so troupe member Alan Bersten jumped in to sub with just two hours notice. You would've thought they'd been dancing together for years!
Bringing His Wany-A-Game: Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold did the Salsa to “Echa Pa’lla” by Pitbull. Wanya said he wasn’t going to bring his A-game. Instead, he was gonna bring the whole alphabet. After a week of training in multiple cities, the team wowed the crowd with their routine.
This Girl Is on Fire: Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe performed a Samba to “Bun Up the Dance” by Dillion Francis &Skrillex. With flames shooting skyward behind her and a bare-chested partner beside her, Jodie got things off to a hot start on Latin Night!
What the Hectic: Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd did the Rumba to “Stole the Show” by Parson James. The beautiful, flowing routine had the crowd gasping throughout and cheering when it was done though Len felt the dance was too hectic. You be the judge.
Playing the Trump Card: The Donald was in the house for Geraldo Rivera’s unique routine. Len used the word “trumpery” to describe the routine. Bruno said it was impressive for all the wrong reasons. Geraldo admitted that he was going for the laughs with his routine. Unfortunately, there was no chuckling with some low scores and ultimately the first elimination of the season. Check out his last dance.
A Fine Ending: Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy did a Samba to “Sorry” by Justin Bieber. They wrapped up the evening in fine fashion with a fast-moving routine. Carrie Ann knows there was a slip-up in the middle, but Ginger never let it show. See for yourself!
