With 12 celebrity contestants and their professional partners still remaining on the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, Monday night made jive come alive – with decidedly mixed results.

If Pamela Anderson could do Monday night's cha-cha-cha all over again with partner Tristan MacManus on Dancing with the Stars: All Stars, she says she wouldn't change a thing.
Scoring an evening low of 17 points, Anderson, 45, told reporters backstage after the show, "Humans aren't perfect, and I think it was very brave of us to go that strong with our emotional connection about the dance."
"I think there was a lot of good stuff about it," she continued. "I take it seriously. I write down the song and think about my own personal experiences."
