Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy weren’t the only ones to have a misstep on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars.
Though the pair’s tumble to the floor was the most obvious – and caused a collective gasp in the ballroom – other contestants admitted to having had trouble with their footwork too.
“We nearly had a fall,” pro Kym Johnson, whose samba with Hines Ward earned them one of the night’s best scores, told PEOPLE after the show. “I don’t know what was going on on the dance floor.”
