Dancing With the Stars Episode 3 Fantasy Recap: What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas

On Dancing With the Stars Episode 3, we said goodbye to Charo and Keo Motsepe Foxtrot – (6-6-6-6) – 24  the queen of cuchi cuchi and the most vocally aggressive contestant this season. Although she wasn’t the strongest dancer, Charo showed us the passion, heart and charisma it takes to be on Dancing With the Stars. She also helped show us why there’s a five second delay.

Vegas Baby! It was wild! David surprised the most with his hot rendition of “Magic Mike” — he took off a lot more clothing than I expected him to.

It was made clear — if your fantasy team consists of the male celebrities this season, you’re probably not doing ideal. The ladies are bringing the heat — Normani, Simone, Nancy and Heather all want it and are killing it on the dance floor. They’re not backing down and it’s evident it’ll be an all ladies final if this continues. Rashad has the best shot of being the lone man in the finals, as I don’t see Nick or Bonner making it that far in the competition.

The “Most Memorable Year” is next week’s theme and is usually the one that brings out the heart in everyone. I’m looking forward to the sentimental video montages.

Dance Breakdowns

Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Foxtrot – (8-8-9-9) – 34

They saved the best performance for last. That was the character of the Foxtrot at it’s finest. That screamed Vegas. It also screamed MIRROR BALL TROPHY. I think this young lady is destined for the finals and perhaps the Season 24 winner. We will see. Len, I agree, more in hold. Tricks are easy — holding yourself in closed dance position, maintaining rhythm and timing takes far more effort.

Heather Morris and Alan Bersten

Tango – (9-8-8-8) – 33

Secretly hoping that Maks doesn’t make it back for a few weeks. I agree with the judges that the chemistry of these two definitely shined through tonight. I absolutely loved the choreography and they did Britney some big justice. She’s another one gunning for the finals. Could it be her? Perhaps. Keep it up Heather!

Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev

Samba – (8-9-8-8) – 33

Nancy? She just took 10 years off her image with that performance. As I said, she needed to portray a more youthful energy here and she did just that (she must be a loyal reader). Loved her content, technique and her partner’s physique. Parts seemed unsure to me, slightly stiff, but overall her biggest improvement yet in the season. She’s one to watch. Well deserved points for Nancy.

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber

Quickstep – (7-8-9-8) – 32

I told you — no lifts! They’ll come right after you for that. However, I agree with Julianne — accurate feet, clean, sharp, quick movements — an overall amazing performance. I think her energy is fine, so I disagree with the judges on that. She deserved more points – Quickstep is no walk in the park. Don’t worry — Simone isn’t going anywhere. Next week look for her to shine during her most “Memorable Year” which we all know was Rio 2016.

David Ross and Lindsay Arnold

Jazz – (8-7-8-8) – 31

WITHOUT A DOUBT the most memorable performance of the night. Yes, Carrie Ann is right, he’s got some serious game. I got my wish of a “Magic Mike” sequel. David has won me over this season because he’s not afraid to go WAY out of his comfort zone. He’s got hips. It was rhythmical. I guess it was jazz. Actually good. Is he on your fantasy team? He’s on mine and I couldn’t be happier because he’ll be around a few more weeks. Love the potential and improvement that he continues to show.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater

Samba – (7-7-7-7) – 28

Don’t fear — Rashad will be in the final. He had a bad week: Yes, he knows he went wrong Bruno. Yes, he wasn’t on time. Yes, it looked pretty good. The vertical bounce wasn’t there and it resembled more of a salsa than anything else to me. Don’t confuse my critique with negativity – this guy is going all the way. Hopefully he’s on your team because his scores will only stay in the top tier of all the gentlemen.

Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd

Tango – (7-6-7-6) – 26

Shirtless (almost) Nick — told you! Truly his best yet and as I expected. He’s meant for dances like this. I look forward to seeing him progress. I don’t think he’s going to win but I do believe he can work hard and make it a few more weeks. Relax even more Nick. The fun you’re having IS starting to show.

Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko

Jive – (6-7-7-6) – 26

I continue to dislike this woman — why? Someone needs to advise me otherwise ASAP. I do believe the judges were generous on her score. Yes, it’s a hard dance — we heard you Erika — but it was sloppy. I agree that the synchronization and the flicks were not on par. Feelings apart it’s a routine I won’t remember next week. I believe Erika is nearing her end in the ballroom — especially when you put her next to the remaining ladies in the competition.

Mr. T and Kym Herjavec

Foxtrot – (6-6-6-6) – 24

One of the surprises of the night for me. Who knew Mr. T could embrace the true feeling of a floaty, jazzy, happy,bubbly Foxtot? He did it. Yes, it could’ve been smoother. Yes, the choreography was fairly basic. But progress is being made and that’s what matters. Unfortunately I believe T’s time in the ballroom is coming to an end though. Perhaps he’s saving his best for the “Most Memorable Year” dance next week? Doubt it.

Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess

Charleston – (6-6-6-6) – 24

The unfortunate disappointment of the night — and my worst prediction from last week. Bonner really put forth the best he could given his restrictions of no above the head movements or lifts. He lacked energy required in a dance such as Charleston. I agree with the judges — he couldn’t done more in regard to character and technique. An accurate score from the judges. I don’t think he’ll be going anywhere next week. Bonner has turned into my season 24 favorite and the person I stalk most on Instagram. Follow him @bonner_bolton!

We hope you enjoyed Dancing With the Stars Episode 3 as much as we did, and check back early next week for our Episode 4 Preview! Also, if you are still interested, it’s never too late to create your own fantasy league with Fantasizr.
