Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas performed a Western-themed quickstep on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars but their low-scoring performance, which earned just 18 points, put them in danger of getting the boot on Tuesday's elimination show.

Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who scored 21 points for their jive, were in second-to-last place on the second week of competition. His brother Val Chmerkovskiy and partner Kelly Monaco rounded out the bottom three with 22 points for their quickstep.

So who was eliminated at the end of Tuesday night's episode?

Poor Joey.

He was so nervous about the elimination last week because I made him freak out. I felt bad about that. He just knew that I was nervous all day and he said, "Kym, I think we'll be fine," and I said, "Joey, we're fourth from the bottom. We could be gone."

Dancing with the Stars rehearsals have been great. Obviously I danced with Joey in season 4, so it's really nice to be reunited with him. There's definitely a lot more pressure because it's the all-stars, but it's fun because we're all in the same rehearsal space. We have different rooms, but we see everyone there. It's like one big, happy family.

Jaleel White and his Dancing with the Stars partner Kym Johnson may have gone through behind-the-scenes drama during their time on the show, but White says he has always respected the ballroom pro.

"Kim works hard," the actor, 35, told reporters backstage Tuesday night after he and Johnson were eliminated. "Every time I was going home to go to sleep, she was going off to choreograph. She'd be coming up with some dance. We'd be rolling up out of here, and she'd be going back to work."

In fact, White liked to bring his daughter Samaya, 2½, to rehearsals to show her an example of hard work.
