Ralph Macchio Dances Through Injured Knee on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ [VIDEOS]
Actor Ralph Macchio had to channel his inner Daniel Larusso from The Karate Kid. Ironically he injured his knee in almost the same place his character in the movie was hurt. But that didn’t stop him from hitting the dance floor on Dancing With the Stars. With only 9 hours of training this week, he managed to make it through the dance but with the lowest scores. Ralph has had a rocky few weeks. His partner fell a few weeks ago, he came back big the following week. Now he’s dealing with a serious knee injury. Watch his waltz and judge for yourself on how he did.
From the bottom to the top. Chelsea Kane received the first two 10’s of the season with her waltz and leads the pack this week.
Kirstie Alley got her groove back. Her tango had attitude and the correct steps, for her best dance yet. She’s just one point behind Chelsea and tied for second with Hines Ward.
Hines Ward hammed it up for his foxtrot this week to tie with Kirstie for second place.
Romeo may be in trouble this week. His tango was great and an improvement from last week, but was it enough?
One more will go home one week before the semi-finals. My prediction is Romeo will have to hang up his dancing shoes. Even though Ralph has the lowest scores, he’ll get lots of votes for dancing through his pain, despite his score. Kirstie has been a fan favorite since week one and had her best dance yet, so I don’t anticipate her leaving. Chelsea was in the bottom two last week, so she may be in trouble too, even though she has the highest scores. She doesn’t deserve to go yet, but stranger things have happened.
Tune in to ABC tonight at 9 to see who goes home. Or tune us in tomorrow and we’ll let you know.
Who do you think is going home?
