Asaf and Marissa – Cha cha with Jean Marc- Oh lord. Asaf has to pick up Cha Cha? Travis says Marissa has a tough job doing Cha Cha with Asaf. Marissa has a VERY positive attitude about Asaf. No complaining. Good girl. That should get you votes. Twitch says Asaf is struggling, yet he’s proud of Asaf. Is this a redemption arc for Asaf? Marissa looks fantastic. Asaf needs more bounce in some sections. He’s really stiff, and a little slow on his turns. He’s relying on his sex appeal for this. He knows how to sell that. He does all the lifts, so props for that. He doesn’t have the technique, but he clearly tried this week. He’s come a long way. Marissa killed it though. Nigel said it didn’t feel like the cha cha. Obviously it was dumbed down for Asaf, Nigel. Nigel says it felt like “protection cha-cha”. LOL. Nigel thought Marissa did everything required of her. Nigel tells her to remember to look more at her partner. Nigel gives props to Asaf for working hard this week. Nigel thought it wasn’t good for Asaf. He says Asaf has to keep working hard. Paula says Asaf says he’s come a long way, and he gets an A for effort even though the dance didn’t work for him. Paula thought she looked sexy, but she looked like she was there for herself. Jason says they didn’t have a connection. He says Asaf has to flex his muscles to get some votes. RESULTS: Marissa is safe. Asaf is in danger.
