Getting to the final four on 'The Bachelor'
"The Bachelor" continued its tour of FIFA's CONCACAF region last night with a stop in Belize. This is a "crucial" week, one of the six remaining contestants notes, as Ben must eliminate two women in preparation for next week's "hometown" dates.
This week, there will be three "intimate" one-on-one dates with no roses on the line, as well as a group date where one of the three women on it will advance to next week.
The first one-on-one goes to Lindzi the horse lady, with the clue being, "two halves make a whole." I presume they'll spend their day putting bagels or English muffins together.

Which celebrity bid adieu on 'DWTS'?
Time finally ran out for Carson Kressley on last night's "Dancing With the Stars" results show.
The fashion guru, whose wild, personality-driven routines entertained fans but annoyed the show's judges for lack of technique, was the latest celebrity eliminated from the popular ABC series.
Kressley, who scored the lowest following Monday's routines, told CNN after the show that he was somewhat surprised by his departure.

'Dancing With the Stars' goes retro
It's '80s week on "Dancing With the Stars," meaning Monday's episode pledged to honor every adult contemporary radio station in America.
And what better way to do that than by bringing out The Bangles? Lead singer Susanna Hoffs looked great for 52, but she didn't seem sure whether her tunes required singing or spoken word performances.
The actual competition began with Hope Solo, who performed a tango to Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." Finally, someone brought Tommy and Gina's story to the stage! Unfortunately, Hope again let her power get the best of her, making her dance a bit clunky and uneven.

Surprise elimination stuns ballroom on 'DWTS'
It doesn't take a lot to upset the audience 0f "Dancing With the Stars." As soon as a judge starts criticizing a celebrity's performance, the "boo birds" rain down the auditorium.
So when reality TV star Kristin Cavallari was eliminated from the show last night, the crowd let the voters at home have it. Even the judges were shocked at the sight of Cavallari and soccer star Hope Solo in the bottom two, with judge Len Goodman noting that both had potential to contend for the Mirrorball Trophy.
Cavallari had been one of the better dancers this season, performing the highest-rated quickstep last week and finishing in a tie for fourth among all performers Monday. But host Tom Bergeron noted that Cavallari may have been a victim of fans opting not to vote for her, thinking she would be safe for next week.

The celebrities get personal on 'DWTS'
Monday's edition of "Dancing With the Stars" had the celebrities perform routines inspired by an important year in their lives, and J.R. Martinez performed what may have been the most emotional dance of the competition.
The actor and Iraq war veteran paid homage to 2003, the year he was seriously injured while serving our country. The rumba, which Martinez said was a tribute to the troops "that didn't make it home," resulted in a lengthy standing ovation and plenty of tears. Judge Bruno Tonioli also complimented Martinez for doing some of the intangibles that most celebrities miss when performing the rumba.
J.R. Martinez's score: 26/30 (Carrie Ann Inaba 9, Len Goodman 8, Bruno Tonioli 9)

The next eliminated contestant on 'DWTS' is...
A strong quickstep and praise from the judges weren't enough to keep Elisabetta Canalis around on "Dancing With the Stars."
The Italian actress, best known in the United States for being George Clooney's ex-girlfriend, was the second contestant eliminated from the ABC competition last night.
Canalis was left in the bottom three with David Arquette and Chaz Bono, both of whom scored lower than Canalis after Monday's competition. But Canalis may have been hurt by lack of name recognition, as well as memories of her disappointing cha-cha from last week.
