No one wants to be first to leave Dancing With the Stars.
Monday was the last chance for the 11 contestants to prove themselves before the competition starts thinning out, one head at a time.
Last week was a revelatory one, with stars such as Ralph Macchio, Kirstie Alley and Hines Ward making dazzling first impressions, but it only means so much once the voters start picking up the phone and clicking away online.
So, was it just beginners' luck last week, or did these three keep up their end of the odds-making bargain after tackling substantially harder quicksteps and jives? And how about those who didn't fare so well last time? Any major improvements tonight?
