It was a bad week for Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke, who placed last with 22 points out of the seven remaining couples on the show, and is in grave danger, unless he's able to really rally voters, of being eliminated.
Because Jericho's popularity came from wrestling fans, an audience that didn't to a great degree cross over, he started out in the hole with voters, doing worse in the voting than he did with his scores although according to sources who would know, his teased eliminations in two recent weeks were not as close as portrayed on television. But this week, he will need a strong fan voting to stay alive. He has gained both in popularity with the fans and with the judges each week, until tonight, where judge Carrie Ann Inaba said she believe the pressure got to him and he wasn't having fun.
