DWTS: All-Stars Premiere - Who’s On Top & Who’s Dead Last
As we previously reported, Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, the show's 15th season overall, is the first to bring back former competitors. All will be judged with more scrutiny, having been on the show before.
On Monday, Dancing with the Stars season three champion Emmitt Smith showed he hasn't lost a step, coming in first with 24.5 out of 30 possible points for his cha cha cha to Chain of Fools with partner Cheryl Burke.
"You were born to dance!" judge Carrie Ann Inaba told the NFL's all-time rushing leader, while Len Goodman told the Dallas Cowboy great his was "the last dance of the evening, and the best!"

On the other side, Pamela Anderson, famous for playing a lifeguard, could have used a life-saver on Monday, as the shapely stunner stumbled to the night's worst score with just 17 points.
"It was a bit like a kid on a bike when you take the training wheels off," the diplomatic Len told the 90s sex symbol. "It was a bit shaky, but you didn't fall over."
The always-candid Bruno Tonioli chastened a sad looking Pamela she needed to "work harder" if she was to have any chance at success with the ramped-up format.
The full totals on the evening: Smith and Burke (24.5); Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd (24); Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel (22.5); Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough (22); Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff (22); Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower (21.5); Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (21.5); Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya (21.5); Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani (21); Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (20.5); Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (19.5); Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (19); and Anderson and Tristan McManus (17).
