What the heck is going on?!
Not only was Tommy Chong not injured so badly that he couldn't dance, but it was announced near the top of the show that he and partner Peta Murgatroyd were safe! Sure, the guy's adorable, and he and Peta are adorable together, but he's by far the worst dancer still on the show.
Originally, it was thought that Tommy would have to drop out of the show due to an injury he sustained during last week's show. He explained tonight that there was a cyst behind his knee that had burst, and that a doctor had given him the go-ahead to continue dancing. His Viennese waltz got him a respectable 29, and his trio dance with Peta and Sharna Burgess – during which he did almost nothing but sit and wiggle his hips a bit – garnered a huge laugh from all the judges and a 28 out of 40. Their total for the night was 57.
Since Tommy was safe, we had to say goodbye to Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintse, who have been pretty good from the beginning and were nothing short of pretty good tonight. The pair earned a 34 for their samba and a 36 for their very sexy Paso Doble, which put them at a total of 70.
