The couple only managed to earn 18 points for their solo dance this week and were on the losing team during the group dances. When you mix that with the fact that Victor and Lindsay had been in jeopardy almost every week lately, Victor and Lindsay were the obvious choices to go.
The rest of the results
Early on in the show, top scorers Kellie and Derek found out that they were safe. Aly and Mark found out mere seconds later.
Zendaya and Val got their results a little bit later — of course they were safe. Sean and Peta, however, landed in jeopardy in the same group.
It wasn’t until after the half-hour mark that Victor & Lindsay and Ingo & Kym got some results. Victor and Lindsay landed in jeopardy while Ingo and Kym were declared safe.
The final grouping consisted of Andy & Sharna and Jacoby & Karina. While Jacoby and Karina were safe, Andy and Sharna joined the others in jeopardy.
When it came time for the final results of the night, we learned that — surprisingly — the low-scoring Andy and Sharna were safe. This meant that Sean & Peta and Victor and Lindsay were the bottom two. But with Sean and Peta declared safe, Victor and Lindsay were the only ones left for elimination.
While a single night’s scores and rankings do not always predict who will go home, the “DWTS” leader board is an interesting indicator. Each score is out of 60 points (from the solo dances and the group dances).
1. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough — 54 points (29+25)
2. Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas — 52 points (27+25)
3. Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy — 51 points (29+22)

The show began with Ollie Murs (a British singer) performing “Troublemaker.” Later on, will.i.am performed “#thatpower.”
The week 6 encore dance was the Team Paso. You know, the one with all the naked torsos. Apparently, that’s what the fans on Twitter chose to vote for. Good choice, fans!
Were Victor and Lindsay the right ones to be eliminated? Were you surprised to see Sean and Peta in the bottom two? Why do you think voters keep saving Andy Dick?
