Another week, another theme on Dancing With the Stars Season 12. For Week 6, it’s Guilty Pleasures. Like Story Week, the celebrities get to choose their own music, this time based on their own personal guilty pleasures. The dances themselves are all over the map — Samba, Quickstep, Paso Doble, Viennese Waltz, and the first Tango of the season.
Check out what the final seven couples told On the Red Carpet about their guilty pleasures (lemurs? Toddlers & Tiaras?!) and how they feel about all these weekly DWTS themes.
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: Quickstep
Chelsea's biggest guilty pleasure is Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles and Toddlers & Tiaras. Mark's guilty pleasures are Domino's Pizza and the video game Mortal Kombat.
What is everyone dancing to this week? "It's all songs you hate to admit that you love,” Mark says. Mark loves the various themes this season "because I hate seeing a dance that's just a dance. I want to see a story."
The Quickstep is a full energy routine and Chelsea says it will be fun. They like the fast dances, but it will be the first time they'll dance in hold.
By the way, Mark wears Secret deodorant. Strong enough for a man...
Oh and Mark said he didn't know that his American Idol girl “friend” Pia Toscano would be performing on next week’s Results Show until he heard about it on Tuesday. He not only had nothing to do with making it happen, he didn't know in advance.
Mark is pelted with questions about his relationship with Pia and he gets uncomfortable. Poor Mark! Having said that, it's so on with Pia. It just is.
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: Tango
Chris is a big dessert guy and he says that's the beauty of doing DWTS because you can eat whatever you want. So he's not feeling guilty about eating lots of sweets anymore.
It looks like Chris and Cheryl will be the first couple to do a Tango this season. (The judges tend to like Tangos.)
Cheryl doesn't mind all the themes because it narrow things down a little bit with the style of the dance, the costumes, and choreography. Classical Week is her favorite theme so far. (Ours too! Do that one again!)
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson
Their guilty pleasures?
Kym: French Fries
Hines: Singing in the shower. "I really wanted to be a singer growing up." But he just didn't have the vocal chords for it.
For their Guilty Pleasures Week dance, Hines picked out some songs that he had tried to sing, but they didn't sound right. So hopefully they dance to the songs better than he sings them.
Kym really likes the weekly themes. It keeps things interesting and "keeps us on our toes."
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: Samba
Kendra & Louis had the Jive this week, but they didn't like their song, so they were allowed to change to a Samba. Kendra is ready to shake her booty.
Louis isn't sure how they are supposed to choreograph a guilty pleasure. His guilty pleasure is chocolate, which he and Kendra both agree is "boring” as guilty pleasures go.
Kendra says it feels like Halloween every week to do these themes.
On Tuesdays Kendra drinks a lot of wine. Louis suggests she drink wine on Mondays, too, since it makes her bubbly and happy.
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower
Romeo's guilty pleasure is getting massages — four times a week! Chelsie says she grew up playing Halo with five brothers, so her guilty pleasure is playing video games. (Hmm.... just like Mark Ballas.)
Chelsie says the changing themes make things more exciting because it gives the pros different inspiration.
Romeo says this week is going to shock a lot of people. "This song definitely means a lot to me and it's going to be a good week, that's all I'm gonna say. You're going to learn something about Romeo that you don't know about."
That he's a country fan or likes "chick music," as Chelsie puts it? Romeo brushes off the “chick music” comment, but he does seem to watch “chick flicks.” He calls himself "a hopeless romantic" who hasn't found his Juliet yet. Aww!
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: Paso Doble
Ralph's guilty pleasure: Checking out past DWTS routines on YouTube to better understand what he's supposed to dance next and... Epsom salt baths?
Karina loves the challenge of the different themes, but she wishes the judges would understand and accept the restrictions of the themes — instead of looking for pink ruffled sleeves during a Samba to "Sweet Home Alabama." (Burn!)
Ralph said their Guilty Pleasures Week song will make you "smile and jump out of your seat. It's gonna make you dance." Everyone knows this song within one note, Ralph says. It's the antithesis of the kind of music he normally listens to, but this is a song he always cranks up.
Karina says there's a really high note in the song and Ralph can actually hit that note himself. We may even hear him sing the note in their rehearsal package...
Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Samba
Kirstie's guilty pleasure?
Kirstie: "I think that my lemurs are my guilty pleasure because, you know, they're sort of exotic and not many people have them and I'm obsessed with them, so that's my guilty pleasure."
Maks: "I'm exotic."
(Don’t worry, Maks! We’re all obsessed with you, we just don’t feel guilty about it.)
Maks says they are basically blowing off the whole idea of a theme and just doing a classic Samba. "We're going a little Brazilian," Maks says — to which Kirstie makes a "You said it, not me" face.
By the way, Kirstie calls the recently eliminated Petra Nemcova the most beautiful person they've ever had dance on the show. "She's a real role model for everybody out there." Agreed!
