Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy had the Samba for Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 2.

In their video package, Val said he thought he hadn't made Danica stand out enough in Week 1, and he blamed himself. Val said he made a "ridiculous" Samba routine at a professional level; his goal is a standing ovation. The pressure definitely got to Danica, who started to break down a little.

The dance was solid. Maybe not as mindblowing as Val wanted, though. Danica was really good, but not out of this world good. But hey, it's only Week 2.

Bruno called Danica a gorgeous jungle cat, beautiful to look at but not quite tamed. Carrie Ann thought she dominated the Samba, and said certain movements were flawless, but she can get lost when she spins out from Val. Len told her to straighten her legs more, but it was "terrific" overall.

Score: 24/30.
