Sean Lowe tells Dancing With the Stars partner he didn’t shower
But no matter: His jive was enough to earn him 20 points out of 30.
In a clip after last week’s debut on Dancing With the Stars, hometown Bachelor Sean Lowe told partner Peta Murgatroyd, “It’s a start. We’ll do better next week.”
And he was right — even if it was just one point better. The duo earned a 20 out of 30 from the judges after their lifeguard-rescues-bathing-beauty jive routine. Lowe was definitely less stiff from the week before, so it’s clear that he’s a fast learner. What we also learned from this performance: Dude can execute a cartwheel. Shakily, but it was there.
“Sean, save me, save me! Shark!” yelled the ever-boisterous Bruno Tonioli. “You have that kind of charm and charisma on the dance floor.”
Carrie Ann Inaba was also happy with it, although she noticed that when he got a bit out of sync with his partner, “you fall out of the music. If you work on that — mmhmm, watch out.”
But cranky Len Goodman “didn’t get it at all,” complaining that “clever things and theatrics” took over the actual dancing. Cut to Lowe’s fiance Catherine Giudici in the crowd, vehemently booing. Which was kinda cute.
So Team Murgalo has ended up with 39 out of 60 points, having combined their scores for the past two Mondays. This leaves them decidedly in the middle of the pack, so their chances of surviving tomorrow night are pretty rosy.
Not so rosy: Lowe’s underarms. “You want to hear something gross?” he asked his partner as they toiled away yet again in the studio. “I didn’t take a shower yesterday or today.”
We could have, as a nation, gone forever without knowing this.
