Dancing with the Stars Episode Recap: Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011 Season 13, Episode 3

After only one performance to prove themselves, it's time to eliminate the first couple of Season 13. Did Ron/Metta overcome his low score? Or did we have a shocking boot? Find out whose first dance was their last.

It's the second straight season that there's no "shocking" result tweet from Tom, so either he's been ordered to keep his mouth shut or the result is clear as the sky is blue. I'm going with the latter.

We get right down to business following a killer pro number. I love how efficient results show are at the beginning of the season.

First two safe couples:
Ricki and Derek
Elisabetta and Val

Rob and Cheryl are still in jeopardy, which I find hilarious since Kim was under the impression he was safe an hour ago and tweeted so based on the "Meet the Cast" recap show. Kim clueless? You don't say.

Guys, if you haven't heard yet, this cast hearts each other. Like for real. Whenever they do cozy packages like these — Ron wants to hit the club with Nancy! Rob reads books before bed! (Like Dr. Seuss? I kid, I kid. Sort of.) — I always think of which seasons the cast didn't get along, some of which are obvious (ahem, Jake).

Next two safe couples:
Hope and Maks
Kristin and Mark

Metta and Peta are, unsurprisingly, still in jeopardy. (So is he going by "Ron" only for performance shows? Or was it a one-time thing? I'm confused.)

Time to meet the new faces in the Dancing troupe. I would love to name them had ABC done us the courtesy of chyron-ing their names, but there are two Aussies in the mix, and we know they always make things cooler.

Next three safe couples:
Chynna and Tony
J.R. and Karina
Chaz and Lacey

Big group hug all around! It's actually super adorable. Lacey was totally prepared to hear "still in jeopardy." Chaz, like yesterday, seemed ready to go with the flow, but it was great to see him smile with relief and everyone envelope him.

Next two safe couples:
David and Kym
Carson and Anna

Nancy and Tristan join Rob and Cheryl, and Metta and Peta under the Red Light of Doom. Rob and Cheryl are safe, leaving two newbie pros in the "bottom" two. Aw, poor kiddies. (As per usual, the remaining pairs aren't necessarily the true bottom two.)

And the first couple going home is... Metta and Peta.

So much for that lockout job. Metta's all smiles and no tears. "Peta was great. She was awesome," he says. "I had a great, great time."

"I just mourn all of the antics we're going to miss," Tom says.

But not the terrible dancing, right?

What do you think of the results? Was Metta the correct boot? Did you feel bad for the newbie pros left standing at the end? Is Carson sewing his costume already? Did you love the Chaz lovefest? What books do you think Rob reads before bedtime? Who's your current pick to win?
