‘Dancing With The Stars’ Recap: Lamar Odom & Peta Muragatroyd Are Eliminated
Dancing With The Stars was back for another episode of Season 28 on Tuesday night. The episode aired the second elimination of the season during week 4 and was an injury-free episode.
There was a lot of praise from the judges. Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold received high marks from Len Goodman on their dance. The former press secretary and his partner Arnold earned 21 out of 40 points for their performance. “You attacked that dance. You weren’t scared to get out there,” said Goodman.
Kate Flannery and Pasha Pakov scored a 26 out of 40. James Van Der Beek and Emma Slater scored close to Flannery and Pakov with a score of 28 out of 40. Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Val Chmerkovskiy were a bit ahead with a score of 31 out of 40. There was some repetition with the scores as well. Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber, Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko, Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten, and Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson all scored the same: 32 out of 40.
At the end of the night, the two teams with the lowest scores were Karamo Brown and Jenna Johnson and Lamar Odom and Peta Muragatroyd. The Queer Eye host and his partner performed a tango that was loved by guest judge Leah Remini. “You really turned on that kind of leading man attitude,” she told Brown. “There were no mistakes tonight.” Ultimately though, they received a score of 28 out of 40, putting them as one of the lowest-scoring couples of the night.
Odom opened up about his struggles as a dancer, but his Viennese waltz was still only given a score of 4 by both Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, reaching an overall score of 20 out of 40. Remini seemed to have empathy for Odom’s hard work after giving him a higher score. “I’m getting emotional, Lamar,” she said. “Because I don’t know if everybody knows how hard you work and how hard this is for you.”
The night’s eliminated couple — based on the scores they received from both this week and last, as well as a lack of live audience votes — was Odom and Muragatroyd.
