Tonight, Rob Kardashian received his first perfect score for his freestyle performance. J.R. Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff also received a 30 for their freestyle, but it was Kardashian and his professional partner’s 27 for their waltz that gave them the lead with a score of 57.
- Robert Kardashian & Cheryl Burke : 27+30=57
- J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff : 24+30=54
- Ricki Lake & Derek Hough : 27+27=54
While Martinez and Smirnoff got full points for their freestyle routine, their cha cha cha got mixed reviews. Head judge Len Goodman gave them his lowest score of the night with a 7. Carrie Ann Inaba liked them slightly better with an 8. Bruno Tonioli gave the pair a nine.
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough were good enough to get nines from all the judges for their cha cha cha and also for their freestyle.
