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!"

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:

Janel Parrish's DWTS Blog: You Pour Your Heart Out on the Dance Floor Every Week

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.

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!"

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.

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."

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."
