There’s nothing like a little last-minute drama to stir up emotions on a primetime reality show. This week on Dancing With The Stars, Tr3s fave J.R. Martinez suffered an unexpected ankle injury which wound up impacting his Paso Doble routine.
Dressed in a black Zorro outfit, Martinez definitely had the crowd on his side. But with a bum ankle in the mix, J.R.’s moves were a little off, leading to a less than perfect score from the judges.
As of right now, Martinez is one of the last four celebs standing on DWTS. His biggest rival is undoubtedly Ricki Lake, who scored perfect 10’s Monday night for her tightly choreographed Samba number.
But keep in mind, J.R. earned double perfect 10s for his Jive and Waltz sets last week. And, injured ankle or not, Martinez told the audience that he was still confident he could nab that mirror ball trophy.
“You always want to do well,” he said. “You never want to let an injury or something kind of getting in the way.”
