Dancing with the Stars Episode Recap: Tuesday, April 3, 2012 Season 14, Episode 5

Dancing with the Stars boots its second couple of the season. But with only five points separating the top from the bottom — and a five-way tie at the bottom — is there a shocker in store? Plus: What's the new results show twist?

OK, seriously, who is dressing Brooke this season? Is this Barbie goth she's going for? Major disappointment after yesterday's gorgeous red gown. Also, she has an amoeba on her shoulder.

Len starts off by saying no one deserves to go tonight after last night's performances, but Tom immediately shatters everyone's Mirrorball hopes by saying that's not gonna happen. Are we still on happy pills, Len?

First three safe couples:
Katherine and Mark
Maria and Derek
Roshon and Chelsie

Gavin and Karina are in jeopardy.

I hope no one put away their Kleenex from last night because we have another tearjerker story. Anna and Jonathan (please rehire him, show!) have choreographed a waltz for their friend and fellow dancer Julia Ivleva, who was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. It's a beautiful, heartfelt tribute that only makes me miss Jonathan more. Why won't you rehire him, show?!

Next safe couples:
William and Cheryl
Jaleel and Kym

Gladys and Tristan are in jeopardy. Not that I think Jaleel is in the bottom, but it's interesting that producers didn't put him in jeopardy just as "punishment" after his reported tantrum, which he says was "totally exaggerated."

Twist! Brooke gets the honor of revealing the next safe couple in the celeb-quarium, which she can't get through without fumbling.

Next safe couple:
Sherri and Val ... and Sherri nearly pops her head (and weave) off. Is she seriously gonna do this every week? Because I'm over it.

Another twist! Tom reveals that the dance-off is returning next week for three weeks, with the bottom two couples performing one last time for the judges, who will then determine who goes and who stays. So they're basically trying to ensure that Katherine and William don't leave anytime soon. I kid, I kid. (Not really.) The Dancing purist in me would rather they let the chips fall where they may, but at least it will give more purpose to an hour-long results show.

Next two safe couples:
Donald and Peta
Melissa and Maks

Jack and Anna are in jeopardy.

Gladys and Tristan are safe, leaving Gavin and Karina, and Jack and Anna as the bottom two.

And the couple going home is... Jack and Anna.

Jack's a better dancer than Gavin, but it's hardly a surprising elimination. He wasn't terrible, but not a standout and predictably got lost in the shuffle after going first. He thanks Anna, gives his daughter Kerry another shout-out and wishes everyone good luck. Can Anna please get a contender again next season? I need my Anna fix through at least midseason.

What do you think? Did Jack deserve to go? Did you get something in your eye watching Anna and Jonathan's dance? Are you glad they're reinstating the dance-off? Will Sherri's head completely fall off during Rock Week next week? Who's your current pick to win?
