“Don’t mess with the Disney kid ’cause I’m not as sweet as I look.”
That was Chelsea Kane’s message on “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday, Apr. 25. Luckily, her feet cashed the check her mouth wrote. Chelsea and her professional partner Mark Ballas scored their first 10 of the competition, the second one overall for Season 12’s contestants. (Romeo, who performed right before Chelsea, scored the season’s first 10).
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: We love Chelsea and Mark because they look like they are having so much fun. The perfect example? Their water fight during the pre-performance package where Chelsea completely soaked Mark.
What did the judges have to say about their high energy Quickstep to “Walking on Sunshine” during Guilty Pleasures Week?
Len Goodman: “You managed to fuse high energy with control. Full on and great fun. Well done!”
Bruno Tonioli: “That was so bright and luminous I’m getting a suntan! You have so much zest.”
Carrie Ann Inaba: “You know, sometimes magic happens twice! That was amazing. You guys were completely together. Way to go.”
After the performance, we learned Mark actually twisted his ankle earlier in the day during dress rehearsal. Mark said it really was no decision to dance tonight. “It felt okay, I put some ice on it,” he said. “I wanted Chelsea to have her turn.”
Carrie gave them a 10, while Bruno and Len each scored the couple with a 9. “That feels great,” Chelsea said of the 10. “Today was such a scary day and I was so worried about him [Mark].”
