‘Dancing With the
Stars’ Blog, Week 3:
Nerve-Wracking Words —
“You Are In Jeopardy!”
For the 19th season of Dancing with the Stars, Emmy-nominated dancer and choreographer and new pro, Allison Holker is sharing the inside scoop with In Touch readers — everything from show highlights and behind the scenes secrets to her experience dancing with Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett! Check back every week for more scoop from Allison!
What an incredible week for Jonathan and me — we pulled together as a partnership and grew closer than ever. We shared highs & lows and lots of emotions, but we were there for each other 100%.
But before we got to show everyone all the hard work we had put in to our dance, we had to hear if we were in jeopardy or not. And then Tom Bergeron said the words, "You are in jeopardy!" It was nerve-wracking, but we were ready to dance and show why we should stay in this competition. Jonathan performed his buns off in that tango and moved me across that dance floor with such ease. Jonathan became Jay Gatsby in our tango, and I was Daisy — we loved playing these roles. We nailed the routine and I was so proud of Jonathan!
But even with a great performance we still had to face the reality that someone has to leave the show. It was between us, Randy Couture & Karina Smirnoff and Antonio Sabato, Jr. & Cheryl Burke. Then...Antonio and Cheryl were safe. So it came down to just us or Randy & Karina. We were holding each other for dear life.
And then they said, "JONATHAN AND ALLISON you're safe!!!!"
We feel so blessed to still be here in the competition and we want to bring magic next week. The fans should be extra happy with what we have in store for them in our next performance. It's gonna be so 'fetch'!
