sept17 DWTS THIS ONEDANCING WITH THE STARS
RECAP FOR OCTOBER 1, 2017
By Sammi Turano


Hello and welcome to ABC’s Dancing With The Stars! Tonight we open with Tom Bergeron giving his condolences to those impacted by the massacre in Las Vegas. He tearfully says that while the show must go on, everyone’s thoughts and prayers are with Las Vegas as well.

All of us at TVGrapevine send their thoughts and prayers to those impacted by this senseless act of violence.

There is no elimination tonight. Maks is also dealing with a personal issue, so Alan will be filling for him today. I hope everything is ok.

It is guilty pleasure week, so we will learn more about our celebrities. My professor in college called these ‘media confessions.’ Mine is 80s and 90s sitcoms—and I am currently binging them on Hulu!

Celebrity: Drew Scott
Claim To Fame: Property Brother
Pro: Emma Slater
Guilty Pleasure: True crime shows
Dance: Argentine tango.
Sammi: I lied. This is his best week because it shows his improvement as a dancer as well as his personality. It was a teeny bit slow, but he really nailed it otherwise. The crime theme was cute as well…I just love his sense of humor.
Len: He loved the lifts, character and is on a roll with his dancing.
Bruno: He cracked the case.
Carrie Ann: She is impressed with how he is growing.
Scores: 8-7-8=23 out of 30

Pro: Sharna Burgess

Bruno: He really popped tonight.
