Recap & Complete Scores DWTS October 3: Not a Dry Eye in the House

Last night we saw all the performances for Week 3 of 2011 Dancing with the Stars, October 3, and we couldn’t wait to see what would happen on “Personal Story Night” which we knew would be a tearjerker. We weren’t wrong and now we’ll give you our usual recap and scores for DWTS.

Last week it was Ricki Lake and Derek Hough who gained top place on the leaderboard with Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer languishing at the bottom, so who would trip the best light fantastic this week? Latin or Standard dances were required last night to accompany the stories that were sometimes tragic, sometimes moving and always entertaining. On to the performances then and our scores are always Carrie Ann first, Len second and Bruno third.

Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke took to the floor first with a Foxtrot and a performance dedicated to Rob’s father, and improved yet again with points of 8, 8, 8 – total score 24. Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani came next and also gained better scores than last week with 8, 9, 9 – total score of 26. They danced a beautiful and elegant Rumba. Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer also chose to honor his father with the song being one that Sonny Bono wrote. They also chose to dance a Rumba but despite a lot of effort Chaz failed to shine again. The judges admired him but not the dancing and he scored 6, 6, 6 – total score of 18.

Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas were next up and danced a Samba, again a step-up from last week with points of 8, 8, 8 – total score of 24. Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya and Kressley remembered 2003, the year he came to be known in “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” They danced a dramatic Tango and Carson’s technique has really come on a treat and received points of 8,7,8 – total score of 23.

We all knew that J.R. Martinez’s ‘personal story’ would be uplifting and inspiring and he danced a Rumba with partner Karina Smirnoff. J.R. told of his injuries from fighting in Iraq, his following fight against depression and how his mother helped him to get over his ordeal. The performance was dedicated to all the men and women who didn’t get home and their families and there was not a dry eye in the house by the end. As well as the emotion J.R. danced extremely well to gain 9,8,9 – total score of 26 and a standing ovation.

Nancy Grace and Tristan McManus had a hard act to follow but she spoke of her near death-experience when pregnant with her twins. They danced a Viennese Waltz gaining 7, 7, 7 – total score of 21. Ricki Lake and Derek Hough danced a Rumba following Ricki talking about her home fire last year and subsequently meeting her fiancé. Another great performance with impressive choreography saw them head to the top of the leaderboard again with 9, 9, 9, – total score of 27. Hope Solo spoke about the loss of the U.S. women’s soccer team at the World Cup and then danced a Cha-Cha with Maksim Chmerkovskiy that earned them 8, 8, 8, – total score of 24.

Finally we got to David Arquette and Kym Johnson and they’d scored pretty low again last week so would they be able to improve? After David spilled his heart about his turbulent year including his marriage break-up and addiction problems he spoke of the inspiration he gets from his daughter. David and Kym danced a charming Rumba to receive 8, 8, 8, – total score of 24, a vast improvement.

So once again Ricki and Derek take top spot and Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer are at the bottom. I can’t help feeling Chaz is in trouble this week and it may be his time to go, following Elisabetta Canalis getting the boot last week. We’ll find out tonight in the elimination show. What are your thoughts about DWTS last night and who shone for you? Let us know with your comments.
