SAN DIEGO, September 26, 2016 – Both Ryan Lochte and Rick Perry survived the first week elimination on “Dancing With The Stars,” with young Disney star Jake Austin going home instead. This was a direct result of lack of fan votes making the difference over the judges’ scores to determine the elimination. Have we convinced you of the need to vote?
While another type of “Get Out The Vote” takes center stage Monday night with the first presidential debate airing on ABC, “Dancing With The Stars” will step aside early to make room. Monday night’s show will only be one hour long from 8 to 9 p.m. in all time zones, with the debate starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Sorry West Coast, you lose out on ballroom time.
The competition will work a little differently this week because of the one hour show. Two couples will both dance the same dance style to different songs. After each couple dances, they will get their judges’ scores. Whichever couple scores the highest from each pair will be immune from elimination on Tuesday night. The other couple will automatically be in jeopardy.
At the end of the show, the six low scoring couples will need fan votes to help them avoid leaving on Tuesday night. Any votes for a couple who already has immunity will wasted this week. Only the six couples in jeopardy need your votes, so fans will need to pay attention to the results at the end of the one-hour show. If ABC has its act together, it will restrict votes to the six couples in jeopardy, but don’t count on it.
