It’s the reality elimination that is baffling everybody: how the hell is Curtly Ambrose surviving Dancing with the Stars while some of the show’s favourites are being turfed every week?
The towering Antigua-born cricketer is defying the odds (and most of the judges’ scoring) to remain on the show after last night again landing at the bottom of the leader board with just 9 points. Judges last night were agreed he was half a beat behind in his Jive routine.
Instead it was Michelle Bridges, who was strong on 22 points, who was sent packing. A week earlier another favourite, Olympia Valance, was cut from the show.
Host Amanda Keller described the elimination as another shock to the show, suggesting that favourites were not attracting votes because everybody presumed they were already safe.
Denise Scott returned to the show last night to help out after Grant Denyer was absent due to illness, and delivered the gags despite the short notice.
Next week Bindi Irwin will guest judge.
