DWTS 13, Week 3: Ricki Lake leads

Tonight on “Dancing with the Stars” it was all about sexy and personal stories. The song was supposed to reflect the most memorable year of the celebrities life.

Ricki Lake with her partner Derek Hough had the top score with 27. Lake is 42, the same age as Chaz Bono, and her jive was the high score and highlight of last week.  This week, Lake and Hough had the best score for the rumba.

At the bottom of the leader board was again Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer with 18 (6, 6, 6). They got 17 last week with the quickstep that wasn’t very quick and had very few steps in it. This week, with the slower but more sensuous rumba, they only improved by one point. Not good, but we know Bono has fans.  Are they really doing him a favor by keeping him in?

During the live shows, the judges will give each couple a score based on several factors, including technical execution. But the judges’ scores alone do not decide a couple’s fate.

Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online voting will open at the top of each performance show so that viewers can vote for their favorites. Phone and text lines will stay open until 30 minutes after the end of the show in your local time zone. Online voting will remain open until 11AM (Eastern Time)/ 8AM (Pacific Time) the following day.

In the Dancing with the Stars Results Show, the couple with the lowest combined score from judges and viewer votes will be eliminated from the competition. The scoring is divided evenly between the judges and the viewers at home, ensuring unpredictable outcomes at the end of every show. When the final two couples remain, the ultimate dance-off will determine who wins the trophy.

Viewers can vote via phone and text message for their favorites ONLY on the night they perform; online voting ends at 11AM ET/8AM PT the day following the performances. The Dancing with the Stars Results Show will premiere the week of competition on Tuesday, September 20 at 8|7c.

To vote by text message, text the word “VOTE” to your favorite couple’s number below from your AT&T phone. Message and data rates may apply.


Lines open at the beginning of each show for viewers to phone and text vote for their favorite couples and will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show in each time zone. The whole country can vote.

One (or more) couple(s) will be knocked out of the competition each week there is a results show. The couple with the lowest overall score is knocked out of the competition.

The scoring and format of the show is unique to the series and is not based on a standard dance championship.

PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATING COUPLES:

Each week every couple receives points from the judges and votes from the public. For every couple we determine the share they received of the total points given by the judges on the night of the performances, and the share they received of the public’s votes and add these two shares together. The couple with the lowest combined total is eliminated from the show.

For example if couples A, B and C respectively receive 38, 26 and 14 points from the judges, we calculate what share these points represent of the total awarded by the judges on the night. In this example the judges gave 78 points in total, and each couples’ share of 78 points breaks down as follows: A: 38 points = 48.72% of 78; B: 26 points = 33.33% of 78; C: 14 points = 17.95% of 78. Let’s suppose that when the public votes are tallied, each couple has the following shares: A= 20%, B=40%, C=40%. To determine who’s eliminated, we combine these two shares for the total:

Couple A: 20+48.72%= 68.72%
Couple B: 40+33.33%= 73.33%
Couple C: 40+17.95%= 57.95%

In this example, the bottom two couples would be A and C, and C would be eliminated.
