It was a rough outing in the ballroom for three couples who competed on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.
Kendra Wilkinson, Petra Nemcova and Ralph Macchio each received scores of 22, putting them in a tie for last place.
Nemcova, 31 – who has lasted longer than the four other supermodel competitors on the show in the past – doesn't believe in what is considered "the supermodel curse." So, does she deserve another chance to prove that the supposed curse is wrong?

Kendra Wilkinson and partner Louis van Amstel had the honor of performing Dancing with the Stars' 1,000th competitive dance, a "Yankee Doodle"-themed foxtrot, on Monday night's show. But the milestone the reality star was equally proud of was hitting the ballroom floor with a sense of confidence for the first time.
"Finally, I got a dance that I was into! It was fun. It was happy and it was a celebration of my confidence," a beaming Wilkinson told PEOPLE minutes after the show. "My confidence went from night and day from last week to tonight. I'm so happy."

Elegance is in the eyes of the beholder according to Kendra Wilkinson, not in the eyes of Carrie Ann Inaba.
"We have our own definition," Wilkinson told reporters following the Dancing with the Stars elimination on Tuesday, after Inaba said she seemed to be "afraid of elegance" during her performance the night before. "Elegance is what [my husband] Hank [Baskett] sees, not what Carrie Ann sees. That's what I care about."
The reality star admits that right after Inaba's comment, she felt "like giving up."
"Another woman telling me about elegance eats away at my ego," she said. "I'm a huge Carrie Ann fan, and she's [usually] so sweet, but that one comment – I felt belittled at that moment and embarrassed."

Sometimes you just have an off night. And that seemed to be the case for Kendra Wilkinson, who landed at the bottom of the leader board on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.
"The scores suck," the reality star said of earning just 18 points – the night's lowest score – for her Viennese waltz with partner Louis van Amstel. "That's the way it goes. I didn't do a perfect job and I got the scores I got, and that's the way it goes."
After judge Bruno Tonioli's highly animated critique, head judge Len Goodman reminded him, "These people are beginners, Bruno. Don't be cruel."

Holly Madison's stint on Dancing with the Stars may have been short-lived, but she thinks her former Girls Next Door costar, Kendra Wilkinson, could go all the way to win the competition's coveted disco-ball trophy.
"She absolutely has a chance at winning," Madison 32, recently told PEOPLE. "She's a natural athlete and she's really competitive and she has a fan following, so I think she'll do really well and certainly better than I did."
Still, Madison says that no matter how Wilkinson fares, she should just enjoy herself.
"It's so much fun," Madison, 32, says about participating on the hit ABC show. "As soon as I heard Kendra was going to be on this season, I texted her and said, 'Try your hardest, but don't even worry about being competitive or how long you stay on the show.' "
