There was no topping a topless Donald Driver on Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
The bare-chested Super Bowl champ delivered a powerful paso doble that scored big points with the ladies and the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba predicted it would go down as one of the most memorable dances of season 14. He topped the leaderboard with 27 points.
In Driver’s rearview mirror were Disney star Roshon Fegan and injury-plagued Maria Menounos (did you know she’s Greek?), who both netted a 26.
The judges weren’t as quick to hand out the big scores during Rock Week. Some competitors weren’t turning in their typical big performances, either. Katherine Jenkins and William Levy fell short. Melissa Gilbert’s partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, just fell.
It was a rough night for team Gilbert-Chmerkovskiy, as the “Little House on the Prairie” actress was taken to a hospital for what she said was a mild concussion and whiplash sustained during their their dance.
Gilbert scored a 22, putting her near the bottom. She’s trailed by Gladys Knight and Sherri Shepherd.
