Andy Dick and his pro partner Sharna Burgess felt a little Dancing déjà vu on Monday, when the judges once again gave them a harsh critique.
“I’m angry, because, for example, Bruno – he stands up every week and says something mean to be funny,” Burgess, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after Monday night’s show. “You’re here to be a judge, to tell us how to be better.”
Burgess does commend judge Carrie Ann Inaba for her feedback.
“As far as her giving us a five, yeah, that sucked, but she had constructive criticism at least,” Burgess said. “And if she put so much importance on those dead arms, then trust me, we won’t have any next week.”
She adds, “I hate seeing Andy be berated week to week for things that aren’t dance related.”
Burgess wouldn’t be surprised if she and Dick, 47, are the couple sent home during Tuesday night’s elimination.
“It’s tough,” she said. “We were in the bottom two last week. Sean was, but Sean just did a great rumba. He got all eights. He did fantastic. It was a beautiful routine by Peta, so who knows? Maybe it wasn’t enough for us to get through. I really hope it is because I know Andy has more left in him.”
But Dick is hopeful they continue in the competition.
“Next week, with what she has planned, we could get eights or maybe a nine or something,” he told reporters. “I swear we can squeeze a 10 out of the judges if we get freestyle.”
