The couple took on a sexy samba, which despite being the fourth week of the celebrity reality dancing competition, left most of the judging panel in awe. Last week, Misty May-Treanor dropped out of the competition due to an injury and as a result, no couple was eliminated during the third week of “Dancing.” As a result, all the couples were forced to add last week and this week’s scores together, putting Brooke and Derek at the top of the leaderboard for the fourth week in a row, with an impressive 54 out of 60.
’” Judge Len Goodman, who in weeks past championed the couple, felt the dance, which saw Brooke shake her booty across the dance floor in a tiny skirt and sparkly bikini top, was “too erotic” for his tastes.
Their two-week total of 48 out of 60 landed them in second place. “That’s my big line.” But Warren Sapp and his partner, Kym Johnson, proved they are still after a place in the finals, which are still weeks away.
“You come out and people love you, but you took it a little too easy.
The two were given a perfect score by judge Len Goodman who was thrilled by their moving ballroom dance.“Simply the best dance of the season,” Len raved, following their performance.
And even though Derek had passed out after tripping during an earlier rehearsal, his moves helped Brooke shine in front of judge Carrie Ann Inaba as well.“Brooke, you are quickly becoming my favorite dancer,” she said just before the couple received a total of 28 out of 30 points from the show’s three judges.
“Your inner beauty manifests itself when you dance and you are a pleasure to watch.”But former football player Warren Sapp proved he wasn’t ready to admit defeat.
Warren, who hit the floor with professional Kym Johnson, also danced a moving Viennese waltz, which netted the pair 25 out of 30, and super-praise from Carrie Ann.“I think I have a crush on you,” Carrie Ann gushed.
