Tony Dovolani and Maksim Chmerkovskiy both felt that the judges scored them unfairly, but Leeza Gibbons gets the award for the most hilarious rebuke of Len: "And if he thinks this was my worst dance ever, I beg to disagree. He needs to look at my Fox Trot again."

In other DwtS news, Joey Fatone talked with Access Hollywood about his remarkable weight loss. And Karina Smirnoff’s romance with Mario Lopez is apparently still going strong.
