Monday night was rough for Dancing with the Stars partners Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Hope Solo.
Aside from earning a score of 20 and being ridiculed for performing their “worst dance of the season,” Chmerkovskiy, 31, didn’t exactly charm viewers with his negative outburst in response to the judges’ criticism.
But even though the duo had a less than stellar night, they still performed one point higher than fellow competitors Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, who ended up at the very bottom of the leaderboard.
Were voters turned off by Chmerkovskiy’s meltdown? Or did consistent low scorers Schwimmer and Bono bid the ballroom adieu?
