Even though they probably were the most exciting couple of the night on Monday, Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy might be going home on Tuesday after receiving low scores for their dances the previous night.
The “General Hospital” actress and her pro partner, along with former NFL star Emmitt Smith and pro dancer Cheryl Burke, tied for the lowest scores of the night.
Depending on how the votes go, Monaco and Smith could be sent home unless they are saved by their fans.
Chmerkovskiy felt the judges did not score him and Monaco fairly, giving the couple some of the lowest scores of the night.
While the other four dance duos got a 10 from at least one judge for one performance, Monaco and Chmerkovskiy got no perfect scores.
Their surfer-inspired flamenco dance disappointed the judges even though they stripped down to bathing suits and ended up on a wet surface with water splashing them in the face.
"Kelly, I think you've been upstaged by the Speedos," judge Bruno Tonioli said. "Never work with Speedos or animals!"
As Chmerkovskiy covered his groin, he quipped, "I just want everyone to know that it's cold in here!"
The two shared a passionate kiss at the end of the second dance, and even if the judges didn’t like their dances technically, no one can deny their chemistry.
Monaco told Us Weekly the kiss was planned in advance.
"It was part of the choreography! We could have done anything, but we thought that fit and we picked that."
It "was a very tough week," the season 1 champ added.
The 36-year-old felt the flamenco "was my best dance yet this season. . . That's all that really matters!"
