'Dancing With the Stars': Who went home? Trick question

As "Dancing With the Stars" came to an end last night, it looked like Bill Engvall's underdog run was going to end, too.

The comedian and his pro partner, Emma Slater, had the lowest score among the eight remaining couples following Monday night's performance.

After Jack Osbourne was declared "safe" by co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, Engvall was the last celebrity left on the floor, so all that was left was the farewell dance, right?

Think again, as host Tom Bergeron immediately declared Engvall safe, meaning all eight couples will return to compete next week. So what happened?

Bergeron explained to viewers that "incorrect phone numbers" were shown last week to viewers watching in the Eastern and Central time zones, meaning viewers may have cast votes for the wrong couples.

The problem was fixed for Mountain and Pacific time zone viewers, but producers opted to throw out last week's votes. Contestant scores will be carried over to next week, although it's not clear how many celebrities will be eliminated on the next show.

Watch the video above to hear from the contestants on the surprise non-elimination, and the "Switch Up Dance Challenge" that kept everyone on their toes!

    The producers told Bristol Palin that if she wanted to be on the show again she had to leave her buttplug at home. Last time it flew out of her so hard that someone had a concussion.
