DWTS: Who Got 10s but Still Went Home?

Originally posted 11/24/2014 10:30PM

It seemed wrong to send someone home on a night when everyone got a 10 or two, but there can only be three couples in Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars finale.

Even though she was partnered with repeat winner Derek Hough, YouTube star Bethany Mota was the latest hoofer to leave the ballroom.

"I discovered things about myself, things I thought I could never do," Mota said. "I never thought I'd be this far in the competition. To be in the finals was the best thing ever."

Janel Parrish's DWTS Blog: My Goal Now Is to Win

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.

It's honestly surreal to be going into the finals tonight. I don't know how it happened so quickly. I feel like just yesterday I was having my first rehearsal with Val! It's amazing, it's exciting, and I'm also really sad for this journey to end.

I'm kind of surprised I stuck around this long. Honestly, my goal was just to make it through each week, and now I have a new goal, which is to win. Now that it's actually here and it's in sight, I want to go all the way and I want to go all the way with Val and I want us to win.

Getting eliminated from Dancing with the Stars can be a disappointing experience. But Lea Thompson admits it does have its perks.

Specifically, a free pass to devour everything in sight.

"I just ate everything," she told PEOPLE at The Hunger Games premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. "It wasn't like I was trying not to eat [while on Dancing]. It was just so nerve-wrecking I couldn't eat. I was so scared – and you don't get a day off for two and a half months!"

DWTS: Which Couple Didn't Make It to the Finals?

Originally posted 11/17/2014 10:15PM

The final five couples took to the stage for this week's Dancing with the Stars semifinals, and while each duo had impressive performances, one couple had to be sent home. This week Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd took their final bows on the dance floor after performing two dances to different types of music – one plugged and the other unplugged – for this week's theme.

"I've just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to!" joked Chong during his final send-off.

Here's how the couples fared:

The quickstep we performed last week was honestly one of my favorite dances we've done. I thought it was amazing. It was America's choice dance, so they chose everything down to our costumes and the song and the style, and at the end they wanted us to kiss, so we threw that in for America!

Even though Val had a little bit of a stumble during the dance, it didn’t throw us off at all. The poor thing, his patent leather shoes got stuck together, but we both just kept going and we were able to get back on track. I know Val felt really bad because of the slip, but I was like, "You're human! Sometimes humans slip. It's all good!"

Alfonso Ribeiro Might Have to Quit Dancing with the Stars Due to Injury

Originally posted 11/14/2014 03:15PM

The injury-plagued Alfonso Ribeiro may have danced his last paso doble.

PEOPLE has confirmed that the 43-year-old actor is now battling another injury after having pulled a groin muscle earlier this season. As a result, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star remains under medical supervision and may not be able to perform on Monday – or the rest of the season.

According to TMZ, Ribeiro hurt his back Wednesday after over-compensating for the groin injury he endured earlier this year while performing his iconic dance, The Carlton. He reportedly skipped another rehearsal Thursday so he could take further tests.

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?

Originally posted 11/10/2014 10:30PM

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."
