On tonightâ€™s episode of Dance Your Ass Off, the contestants faced their greatest challenge to date as they performed two very technically demanding routines. They danced the cha-cha and the Viennese waltz, and fortunately, a surprise dance instructor helped them out. Each of the Dance Your Ass OffÂ contestants also received a Hollywood makeover and a photo shoot to make them feel like stars!
The first Dance Your Ass Off contestant to shake her booty was Shayla, who danced the cha-cha with Mario to â€œGimme Moreâ€ and she was a tigress! The dancing was sexy, and two of the judges gave her a 10! Her average score was 9.7.
Alicia and Italo danced the Viennese waltz to â€œThe Trouble with Love Is.â€ Although Alicia is getting better, she was still a little awkwardâ€”but sheâ€™s never short on enthusiasm. The judges liked what she did overall, but technically she was off. The judges gave her an average score of 7.
Ruben and Hilary did the cha-cha to â€œWaiting for Tonight.â€ Ruben has lost so much weight, he moves with ease and grace! He looks fantastic! The judgeâ€™s average score was 8.7.
Pinky and Mr. Lucky were up next dancing the Viennese waltz to â€œIâ€™ll Be.â€ Pinky looked beautiful and a lot more comfortable on the stage. Lisa Ann and Danny gave her a 10. Her average score was 9.7.
Alicia and Italo danced the cha-cha too â€œCanâ€™t Get you Out of My Head.â€ She was so passionate, and even attempted the splits. The judges thought it was hot and Lisa Ann and Danny gave her a 10, which made her average score an 8.4. She lost 1.62% of her body weight, so with her prior dance score averaged in, her overall total was 10.02.
To date, Alicia has lost 45 lbs.
Ruben and Hilary danced the Viennese waltz to â€˜Ordinary Day.â€ He seemed a little stiff, but remained very classy and elegant as usual. The judges loved it and Mayte and Danny gave him a 10, for a final dance score of 9.2. The percentage of body weight Ruben lost was 2.79, so his overall score was 11.99.
He has lost an amazing 66.9 lbs!
Pinky and Mr. Lucky did the cha-cha to â€œJust Fine,â€ and Pinky looked and danced fantastic. Her percentage of body weight lost was 1.17, and her total overall score was 10.67.
Overall, Pinky has lost 25.9 lbs.
Shayla and Mario were up next dancing the Viennese waltz to â€œFallin.â€ Shayla looked gorgeous, but didnâ€™t look as passionate as she usually does. The judges overall average score was 10.39. She lost 1.19% of her body weight, and since the beginning of the show.
To date,Â Shayla has lost 31.6 lbs.
Shayla, Pinky, and Alicia were in the bottom three, but when it was all said and done, Alicia had the lowest score and, sadly, she went home.
Donâ€™t miss the season finale next week, when one of the three remaining finalists wins $100k and all of the eliminated contestants are back to have fun on the dance floorâ€¦
