Historically, ‘DWTS’ Has Refrained From Eliminating Anyone on Disney Night
Due to the magic of DWTS‘s family-friendly Disney night, the show traditionally does not eliminate any couples during that week of competition. In past seasons, they have set the couples up as though they are going to eliminate one celebrity, announcing who is safe and who is in the bottom two before revealing that no one goes home on Disney night, giving all the couples a pass for the week.
While it’s possible that a couple will be eliminated at the end of the night, based on the scores and votes they received last week, don’t be surprised if no one goes home this week. If no one gets eliminated at the end of Disney Night, it is likely that the votes and scores from week 3 will carry over to week 4 to help determine who gets sent home next.
Last week was the first elimination of the season. At the end of week 2’s performances, host Tyra Banks revealed that Carol Baskin and Charles Oakley had landed in the bottom two after combining viewers’ votes and the judges’ scores. The decision about which couple to send home each week is left up to the judges this season, so Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough had to vote who to save and who to eliminate. Ultimately, the judges chose to save Carole Baskin, and Charles Oakley and Emma Slater were the first pair eliminated from the season 29 competition.
New episodes of Dancing With the Stars season 29 air on Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
