Dancing with the Stars 6: Week 9 Loser

Marissa Jaret Winokur, Tony Dovolani

On last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the four semifinalists had the opportunity to showcase their improvement.  Their dances - chosen at random - were all repeats of styles they had done before. 

By night’s end:

  • Jason Taylor got a 28 for his Foxtrot (formerly 22) and a 27 for his Paso Doble (26).  Total = 55.
  • Cristián de la Fuente was coincidentally assigned the same two performances he attempted the night of his injury.  Despite horrible flashbacks, he earned a 27 for his Viennese Waltz (25) and a 29 for his Samba (21).  His total of 56 topped the Miami Dolphin.
  • Underdog Marissa Jaret Winokur scored a 26 for her Quickstep (21) and a 26 for the Rumba (25).  Total - 52.
  • Kristi Yamaguchi racked up a 28 for her Jive (down from her perfect 30) and a 29 for her Tango (27).  Her total of 57 was the best of the evening.

Although no one wanted to see it happen, we all knew it was the Broadway star’s time to go.  The bubbly actress managed to escape several eliminations thanks to her infectious personality, but a win in the finals was not something Marissa could do with a smile alone.  Regardless, Winokur should be proud of her accomplishments during this season.  Keep in mind—she started 8 weeks ago with a total of 18!
