Vanessa Lachey and Maks Chmerkovskiy dance next, performing a paso doble to “Game of Survival” by Ruelle.

Len Goodman says it lacked paso doble content, while Bruno Tonioli calls it a “fright fest.” He warns her, however, to watch her control. Carrie Ann Inaba reminds her to keep her balance in her movements, but encourages her to continue being “strong and powerful.” They score a 24 out of 30.

Things are getting creepy and kooky in the ballroom as the eight remaining couples celebrate “Halloween Night.” On Monday, the stars will dance a paso doble, jive, Charleston, tango, Viennese waltz or contemporary routine to capture the spirit of the scariest night of the year. Couples will also participate in team dances, lead by captains Drew Scott and Terrell Owens. An elimination will occur at the end of the night. Drew Scott and Emma Slater are currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 30 out of 40 points. At the top of the leaderboard are Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas, who earned a perfect score for their sci-fi Argentine tango during “A Night at the Movies.”

According to ABC, Lachey is a 1998 Miss Teen USA winner who has since hosted or served as a correspondent for several television specials. “For two seasons, Lachey was the New York-based correspondent for Entertainment Tonight, the #1 syndicated entertainment newsmagazine in the world. During her time with Entertainment Tonight, she reported on the latest news regarding music, film, television and fashion.” She will be competing against her husband Nick.

The star-studded lineup for the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars” includes former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, Hamilton’s Jordan Fisher and “Property Brothers” co-host Drew Scott. Other stars include Victoria Arlen, Nikki Bella and Frankie Muniz. Fan-favorite pros Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke also return to the dance floor this season, along with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.

The judging panel features Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine which couples will go home and which ones will advance to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
