Two all-star couples got the boot on Tuesday night, following Monday's Veteran's Day tribute.
Combining their scores from Monday and the previous elimination-free week, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were again in the bottom spot, just below Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff.
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd were uncharacteristically in the bottom three.
The first to go were Alley and Chmerkovskiy.
"The second time around was very special to me," said Alley. "I learned more about dancing, believe it or not."
They were followed by a mild shock, with the departure of usually high-scoring Marini and Murgatroyd, who couldn't overcome the recent rough patch.
"In the end, it was just an incredible experience," said Marini.
