The theme for week 4 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” was Disney Night. However, not everyone had a happy ending. Donald Trump’s ex wife Marla Maples and her dancing partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated at the end of the hour.
This is despite Maples receiving favourable reviews from the judges for her waltz to “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid.” Maples and “Fuller House” star Jodie Sweetin were both in jeopardy, as they had the lowest scores. But Maples ended up earning the lowest overall total, based on judges’ scores and votes from viewers.
Reacting to the elimination, Maples said she was happy to be a part of “Dancing with the Stars” as she had the most incredible experience on the show. “Tony has been the most masterful teacher,” she told host Tom Bergeron, reported Entertainment Weekly.
“We have had so much fun, don’t let those tears fool you, that was the tear of like, we made it through last week. Those were happy tears,” she added.
As for the high scorers, Ginger Zee and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy did a Foxtrot to the opening number of “Beauty and the Beast,” earning her 36/40 from the judges. Nyle DiMarco and his partner Peta Murgatroyd, touted to win Season 22 of the dancing reality show, too won a lot of praises for their Samba.
