With another week in the books, the stakes get higher and higher. Two teams tied at the top of the leaderboard with 29s, with Corbin Bleu & Karina Smirnoff wowing the judges with a Cha Cha and Amber Riley & Derek Hough performing a fiery paso doble despite an ailing knee. With the team dances judged very tightly (27 to 30), the individual scores took on greater importance.

With last week's show seeing no eliminations, it was time to send another couple home. Though they received a 27 for their samba, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi & Sasha Farber went home, with Snooki bidding the crowd a tearful goodbye still decked out in her zombie costume from the Spooky Bom Bom team dance.
Amber Riley & Derek Hough - Paso Doble (29 points)
Corbin Bleu & Karina Smirnoff - Cha Cha (29 points)
Bill Engvall and Emma Slater - Quickstep (23 points)
