Despite some harsh criticism from the judges on Monday night, including having Carrie Ann Inaba brand her moves "boring," Tony-winner Marissa Jaret Winokur was saved from elimination on "Dancing With the Stars."
Judge Bruno Tonioli said Marissa’s Monday night jive with partner Tony Dovolani “looked like a rehearsal.” But the two bounded back and were sent through to another week of competition.
And Marissa’s ticket to next week wasn't the only surprise of the night. Steve Guttenberg and Jonathan Roberts unveiled the "Mango” live on the “DWTS” stage.
The two opened the show in a cheek-to-cheek man-on-man tango.
The dance was a big hit with the fans and the men themselves, who ended up rolling around on the floor with laughter as the dance concluded.
But it would be his second to last dance “The Gute” would make on the show. Not long after, he and partner Anna Trebunskaya were eliminated from the show.
“You totally embraced the show and I think you deserve another crack,” Judge Len Goodman said before “The Gute” got the bad news. He handled it well though, smiling and hugging his cast mates.
“Dancing With the Stars” returns to ABC next Monday for its fourth week of competition.
