DwtS 8, Week 5: Results

Just a quick recap tonight, since I’m fighting a seemingly endless cold — and losing!

The American people are more fond of mimes than I thought. Steve-O wasn’t in the Bottom Two this week, despite earning the lowest judges’ scores. Instead, Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska and David Alan Grier & Kym Johnson had to stand under the harsh red lights.

Ultimately, David & Kym got the boot, and DAG didn’t look happy about it. When Samantha Harris asked him to sing for her one last time, DAG refused. It was refreshing to see a celebrity who’d put so much time and emotion into DwtS show his disappointment, instead of acting as though everything was okay. I like the celebs who take the process seriously, and I’ll miss DAG’s effort.
