How quickly has All My Children’s, J.R. Martinez (Brot Monroe) become a crowd favorite? Literally overnight, the Iraqi war vet turned motivational speaker turned soap star, remained near the top of the leaderboard after the second week of competition in the ABC ballroom dance show, Dancing with the Stars!
On Monday night’s episode, Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff finished tied for second place with 22 of 30 points after an electric jive dance that impressed the judges. Former talk show host Ricki Lake topped the night’s scoring with 23 points. The previous week, Martinez and Smirnoff tied singer Chynna Phillips and partner Tony Dovolani for the highest score with 22 points.
Then last night on Tuesday’s results show it was Elisabetta Canalis, the ex-girlfriend of motion picture star, George Clooney, who got the boot on last night’s results show and was sent packing, meaning that J.R. is safe for another round, and we will get to see him dance next week. Way to go J.R.!
