ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) — Last night on Dancing with the Stars, Halloween Night scared up some good performances — including two dances that received perfect scores — but ended with one couple facing their elimination fears.
Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber were sent home, after performing a haunted schoolhouse tango that got them a 24/30 from the judges.
"This has been the time of my life," Mary Lou said after the elimination. "I hadn't challenged myself in decades, and now I challenged myself. I'm off to a fresh new start."
As for the rest of the dances, the night was bookended by two treats. For the first performance, Milo Manheim and Witney Carson delivered an insanely good contemporary routine complete with creepy contacts and straitjackets. They earned a perfect score from the judges.
And for the final performance of the evening, Juan Pablo DiPace and Cheryl Burke jived like Egyptians in a performance judge Carrie Ann Inaba called “sheer perfection.” It was perfect 10s for them.
It’s no trick — for the first time in the competition “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile and his partner Jenna Johnson did not have the lowest score of the night. In fact, their Frankenstein-themed Argentine tango proved Joe can come aliiiive on the dance floor. It earned them their highest score yet: a 22/30.
The lowest score of the night this time went to John Schneider and Emma Slater, who gave an energetic but mistake-riddled paso doble, earning them a 19/30.
There were also some relationship revelations off the dance floor. Mary Lou revealed she went through a divorce this year after 27 years of marriage, while Alexis Ren admitted she’s developing feelings for her dance partner Alan Bersten. Alan agreed they have chemistry, but played coy about his own feelings, saying “time will tell.”
Here’s a look at the scores:
Milo Manheim, Disney Channel star, with Witney Carson, 30/30
Juan Pablo Di Pace, Fuller House & Mamma Mia! actor, with Cheryl Burke 30/30
Evanna Lynch, Harry Potter films star, with Keo Motsepe, 29/30
