Dancing with the Stars Episode Recap: Tuesday, April 19, 2011 Season 12, Episode 9

Dancing with the Stars' American Week wraps up as one more couple is cut. Did anyone in the three-way tie at the bottom of the leader board exit the ballroom? Plus: Maks confirms he's sex on a stick.

We get down to business right away (and by the way, could Brooke's dress be any tighter?) The two couples that didn't tie with anyone else face off.

First safe couple:
Hines and Kym

Kirstie and Maks are in jeopardy.

Romeo and Chelsie deservedly get the encore, but the best part of it is Toby Keith walking aimlessly on the makeshift stage waiting to perform. Dude clearly wants to be anywhere but Dancing. Maybe that scowl threw off Maks and Lacey, who mess up their cowboy routine. So Maks avoids a faux pas with Kirstie but still manages to record three mishaps in a row. And here I thought John Travolta cured them. At least Anna and Jonathan were basically perfection on the floor during the second number. P.S. Can Jonathan please come back next season?

After Romeo's international man of mystery alter ego (obviously, he attends the Meryl Streep School of Accents) threatens to put superglue in Hines' toothpaste, the second-place scorers learn their fates.

Next two safe couples:
Chelsea and Mark
Romeo and Chelsie

Chris and Cheryl are still in jeopardy.

Filler time! Psycho Mike returns to "expose" the conspiracy behind Dancing eliminations. Like producer intervention? Nope! The truth about the cast: Hines farts, Romeo can charm the bra off Chelsie (though he looks like he's never seen a bra before) and Len curses. But nothing tops Maks confirming what we all knew: "I'm like a stick that has been dipped in a boiling pot of sex." So that's how they make sex on a stick!

After a Macy's Stars of Dance tribute to New York City, the bottom-dwellers hit the stage.

Next two safe couples:
Ralph and Karina
Kendra and Louis

That leaves Petra and Dmitry in jeopardy.

Next couple safe:
Kirstie and Maks

Petra and Dmitry, and Chris and Cheryl are not necessarily the bottom two.

And the couple leaving is... Petra and Dmitry.

Not surprising when it was between these three. Though I would've booted the perennially miserable Kendra, Petra didn't seem long for this, especially after Kendra displayed her staying power last week already. Are Hef and the bunnies power-voting? Plus, models don't have the fan bases that actors, musicians, athletes or even (sigh) reality stars do. This is what America's come to. Still, Petra should've outlasted Kendra. She was gracious, adorable, sweet and had potential, not to mention the right attitude. She says it's been a life-changing journey and that schools supported by her Happy Hearts Fund have started dance-athons.

Next week's theme is guilty pleasures (how fitting), but the bigger news: Pia Toscano will sing on the results show, accompanied by a performance by her "close friend," as Tom advertised, Mark. "Close friend"? Is that what we call it these days? And the biggest news: New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys will perform as well. Be still my heart! NKOTBSB FTW!

What did you think? Was Petra the correct boot? How miserable did Toby Keith look? Why are Anna and Jonathan so flawless? Should Hines be wary of his toothpaste? What are your guilty pleasure songs? Will next week be Mark and Pia's giant coming out party? Has Maks been dipped in a boiling pot of sex? Who's your pick to win it all? Vote below!
