‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 25 Week 3 Recap: Maks Is Missing As Alan Fills In

Tonight we open on “Dancing With the Stars” with Tom Bergeron giving his condolences to those impacted by the massacre in Las Vegas. He tearfully says that while the show must go on, everyone’s thoughts and prayers are with Las Vegas as well.

There is no elimination tonight. Maks is also dealing with a personal issue, so Alan will be filling for him today. I hope everything is ok.

It is guilty pleasure week, so we will learn more about our celebrities. My professor in college called these ‘media confessions.’ Mine is 80s and 90s sitcoms—and I am currently binging them on Hulu!

Celebrity: Drew Scott

Claim To Fame: Property Brother

Pro: Emma Slater

Guilty Pleasure: True crime shows

Dance: Argentine tango.

Sammi:  I lied. This is his best week because it shows his improvement as a dancer as well as his personality. It was a teeny bit slow, but he really nailed it otherwise. The crime theme was cute as well…I just love his sense of humor.

Len: He loved the lifts, character and is on a roll with his dancing.

Bruno:  He cracked the case.

Carrie Ann: She is impressed with how he is growing.
