'DWTS' Results Recap: Kelly Monaco's Subtle Strategy Can't Be Beat (VIDEO)

Kelly MonacoLet me ask you a question -- Is this the best season of Dancing With the Stars ever or is this the BEST season of Dancing With the Stars EVER? I mean, past seasons were always entertaining and enjoyable to watch, but this All-Star cast has really stepped the competition up a notch.

Instead of being able to predict who is going home each week, hearing who winds up in jeopardy during the results shows has definitely brought a few surprises. And one thing is perfectly clear -- whoever winds up winning the mirror ball trophy this season has to have some serious talent. And oh yeah -- picture perfect looks and major sex appeal doesn't hurt either. Just ask Kelly Monaco.


Does that girl have everything going for her or what? First of all, it's pretty hard to ignore that she's drop dead gorgeous. At 36, she looks way better than most 26-year-olds -- and she's got a figure just about any woman would kill for. And then there's the whole semi-innocent flirty thing she's got going on with Val Chmerkovskiy.

Let's face it -- DWTS viewers love the idea of partners hooking up -- and these two definitely act like they're doing it. (And they totally are, don't-cha-think?!?) Couple Kelly's looks and possible blossoming romance with the fact that she won the very first season of Dancing With the Stars, and you've got yourself the perfect formula for winning the whole she-bang once again. (Girl has some major strategy going on.) Even though all of the contestants got to choose each other's dances for next week -- Kelly's recipe for success is virtually impossible to duplicate.

Just in case you weren't paying attention last night (or if you simply want an encore viewing) -- here is Kelly Monaco's sexy Paso Doble.

On to the results -- tonight's double elimination proved even further just how much harder contestants are going to have to work to make it to the finals this time around. I have to admit, I was pretty sad to see Drew Lachey go home -- and I can't help but wonder if he'd still be around if he'd been paired with Cheryl Burke instead of Anna Trebunskaya.

But honestly, how in the heck did Helio Castroneves wind up going home instead of Bristol Palin? (And Sabrina Bryan didn't deserve to be at the bottom either -- but at least she's safe for another week.)

I genuinely like Bristol, I really do -- but Helio definitely out-performed her this week (and every week thus far for that matter). But as I said last week, Bristol has absolutely nothing to lose. And if I had to guess, I'd say she'll probably stick around for at least two or three more weeks.

Were you shocked that Drew and Helio were the eliminated cast members tonight?
