VIDEO: Tommy Chong Explains His Suggestive Remark on Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 11/11/2014 02:30PM

After wrapping up his suggestive dance with Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd on Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Tommy Chong capped things off with a suggestive remark to the judges – which had the audience roaring with laughter but left Burgess and Murgatroyd looking mortified.

What was he thinking?!

PEOPLE caught up with the Cheech & Chong star, 76, backstage after the show to ask him just that. And it turns out he's been reining himself in this whole season – acting out in rehearsals but holding back on the show in the interest of decorum.

DWTS: Who Got the Boot Before Tommy Chong?

Going with great news – rather than just a great performance – is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars. To that end, Monday's installment killed it with the bulletin that oldie but goodie Tommy Chong made it for another week!

But Chong getting to stay meant that a (high-scoring) celebrity had to go. So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson – who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances – was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom.

"I just feel really great. I feel strong and I'm anxious to get back to my day job on Switched at Birth," Thompson said. "I love this man [Artem Chigvintsev] and he's a new pro and I think he did a great job with me."

Janel Parrish's DWTS Blog: Val Chmerkovskiy Keeps Me Calm and We Dance On

Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

Last week's contemporary dance definitely was my favorite dance. I thought the choreography was the most beautiful we've done so far, and I love Romeo and Juliet. I love the story behind it, and the song and just the message behind the song – that everybody's free to love who they want to love. It's an emotional song, and it allows you to express emotions through dance, so I loved every second of that.

It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night's Tarzan – better known as Michael Waltrip – couldn’t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle.

The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show.

"It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma's heart and who she is as a person," Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. "I'm happy I got to be here and sad I have to go."

"I'm so emotional," added his pro Emma Slater. "He's made me a better person. You meet these people and he has a big heart. I'll be a better person for the rest of my life."

Her contract isn't up until the end of the season, but the judges and viewers hastened her departure by booting her celebrity partner Antonio Sabato Jr. on Monday.

How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket!

It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr.

No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy.

"I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here."
