"Dancing with the Stars" returned to ABC on Monday with Latin Night featuring all seven remaining couples on the dance floor.
Last week, "DWTS" fans bid farewell to Drew Carey and his professional dance partner Cheryl Burke, and in week seven, no couple was safe from suffering the same fate of elimination. After consistently low scores and fans' votes, "Real Housewives" star Nene Leakes and her partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated on Monday.
As the 18th season of ABC's dance competition winds down, the dancers and their celebrity partners are working hard to stay at the top. Monday's episode also saw Ricky Martin serve as a guest judge, and fans could vote for their favorite couples to dance twice.
The remaining "DWTS" competitors include Candace Cameron-Bure and Mark Ballas who are fan favorites, as is "The Wonder Years" actress Danica McKellar and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. However, the starlet recently sustained an injury, and requested fans' support via Twitter ahead of Monday's show.
"So... I broke a rib in yesterday's #DWTS rehearsal," McKellar wrote on Twitter on Friday, April 25. "Trying my best to pull thru and could use your prayers!! #wanttokeepdancing"
Later on, the actress added, "Had rehearsal today... It's tough dancing with a broken rib. @iamvalc choreographed an amazing routine- fingers crossed I can pull it off!"
Despite the injury, McKellar promised to do her best, and fans flooded Twitter with praise following the performance.
"Thank you all for your incredible outpouring of love, prayers and support for a speedy recovery of my broken rib," the actress added via Twitter.
Other remaining couples on season 18 are as follows: James Maslov and Peta Murgatroyd, Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Charlie White and Sharna Burgess, Amy Purdy and Derek Hough.
"DWTS" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli returned as judges for season 18's, while host Tom Bergeron is joined this year by co-host Erin Andrews. For the first time in "DWTS" history, the competition features a new game-changing twist called "the switch up" where viewers can vote to change the celebrities and professional dance pairings.
Next week's "DWTS" will see "Dance Moms" famous dance instructor Abby Lee Miller guest-judge.
