The couple scored 17 points for their two step on Monday's show, but they weren't the lowest scorers.

"I had fun... It's difficult. It's hard to do," Chuck said.
"You are a gentle giant... I loved working with you... You made me so proud," Anna said about Chuck.
Judges' scores were added to viewers' votes and the celebrity with the lowest combined point total was eliminated.

The celebrities who will return next week:
Singer Aaron Carter and partner Karina Smirnoff, who were announced as being in the bottom two. On Monday's show the couple was criticized for not having enough "raunchiness" in their lambada. The couple earned 18 points for their efforts.
Snowboarder Louie Vito and partner Chelsie Hightower only received 16 points for their attempt at the two step.
Singer Donny Osmond and partner Kym Johnson earned 24 points for their Charleston.
Singer Mya and partner Dmitry Chaplin earned 28 points for their sexy lambada.
Actress Melissa Joan Hart and partner Mark Ballas scored 28 points for their Charleston. Melissa received her first 10 of the season from Bruno Toniolo.
Model Joanna Krupa and her shirtless partner Derek Hough earned 26 points for their raunchy lambada.
Singer Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel received 23 points for their Charleston.
Swimmer Natalie Coughlin and partner Alec Mazo earned 24 points for their bolero.
"Iron Chef America" chairman Mark Decascos and partner Lacey Schwimmer earned 22 points for their two step.
NFL star Michael Irvin and partner Anna Demidova earned 16 points for their bolero.
At the beginning of the results show, head judge Len Goodman chose the Charleston by actress Melissa Joan Hart and partner Mark Ballas as the encore dance of the week. Last night, Len said he wanted the repeat performance to be the lambada from model Joanna Krupa and her shirtless partner Derek Hough. Their steamy routine got the crowd's appreciation, but maybe Len decided it was too risque for a repeat.
Last week, actress Debi Mazar and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy and politician Tom Delay and his partner Cheryl Burke left the show.
In week two, model Kathy Ireland and her partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated. Guest judge Baz Luhrmann was on the panel in place of Len Goodman.
In week one, actor Ashley Hamilton with partner Edyta Sliwinska and singer Macy Gray with partner Jonathan Roberts were eliminated.
