'Dancing with the Stars': Romeo (and Hanson) dominate Guilty Pleasures Week

After a patriotic week that was occasionally a little too over-the-top to watch, “Dancing with the Stars” rebounded with a show all about guilty pleasures -- Hanson was the house band, we saw footage of Bruno Tonioli in underwear, and there were also a few of the best dances of the season.
All in all, it was a good way to spend Monday night.
Kirstie Alley: In kicking off Guilty Pleasures Week, Kirstie danced to a hit song that pretty much no man would ever admit to listening to -- Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.” It was fun, flirty, and even had more hip action than you would originally expect from a 60-year old actress. The biggest surprise? This was all for a samba, which is widely regarded as one of the toughest dances. Score: 26
Chris Jericho: As someone who counts anything by Journey as a guilty pleasure, this was something that immediately brought excitement to our minds. However, the dance just felt substandard. It was solid, but Jericho didn’t bring any of his wrestler excitement to the tango, which came with some high expectations thanks to the song. With a fan base in question, Jericho’s future could be in trouble. Score: 22
Romeo: Here’s the opposite side of the coin. As someone who can’t stand “Titanic,” this on the surface looked like it was going to be a complete and total cheesefest. Instead, it was touching, moving, and it was almost easy to imagine that these two were an actual couple in real life. (Hey, Romeo did get a kiss -- even one on the cheek by Brooke Burke.) He also got the first 10 of the season from Carrie Ann Inaba. Score: 28
Chelsea Kane: After a brilliant performance by Romeo, it seems almost as if the judges may have scored this quickstep a little too high. Chelsea and Mark were pleasant enough, and the dance even was technically solid. At the same time, it really didn’t have the sort of “magic” that Carrie Ann was suggesting outside of being pleasant. Pleasure along does not equal a 10. Score: 28
