Host Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews launched the 13 in teams of 4 or 5 and introduced who was protected and who was in jeopardy, primarily based on Monday’s judges’ scores mixed with the in a single day viewer votes. I used to be certain that Joe Amabile and Jenna Johnson could be in jeopardy, contemplating that they’d the bottom judges’ rating of solely 14 out of 30. Foolish me! Joe’s fan base should be monumental as a result of he and Jenna have been declared protected! What?!

After which Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten, who had a judges’ rating of 21, have been in jeopardy! I suppose it’s as a result of she is a mannequin and social media character, and never in “The Bachelor” nation like Joe. That is going to be a loopy season.

Following the jive by Alexis and Alan, Carrie Ann Inaba stated she was extra impressed with Alexis tonight than Monday evening and that she was “amazed” the pair was in jeopardy. Bruno added that she gave an incredible dance Monday, then got here again and did it once more.
