Brittany Brannon (voiceover): Tonight... We have our stars competing in a special Game Day and Kanye West stops by for a song. After such a thrilling week of double scores, are we in for a surprise ending like we saw last week? (more clips shown) Find out. LIVE! This is... Dancing with the Stars!
Kendall: Hello, and Welcome to Dancing with the Stars! I'm Kendall Schmidt.
Brittany: And I'm Brittany Brannon.
Kendall: Tonight, we find out couple will be sent home after our Double Scores Week. Will our laggard contestants be put out of their misery or will we see some more of our contenders knocked out of the race?
Brittany: We'll find out later. But right now, we want to introduce you to something we have never done here at the DWTSGame before. All 8 of our remaining stars are about to take place in three fun activities throughout the hour in a special Game Day event. It promises to be a load of fun!
Kendall: Of course it will be! And to kick off Game Day, all of our contestants have paired up with other contestants to try their knowledge at a trivia challenge. Let's get started!
Kendall: To get started, we're going to lay a couple of ground rules. Rule One: You and your partner will have 30 seconds to talk things out before making your final answer, an answer in which you both agree upon.
Brittany: Rule Number Two: If you get the question right, you recieve 1 Game point. Get the question wrong and you get no points. The team with the most points by the end of the night wins this shiny little trophy! (holds up small trophy; audience 'oohs')
Kendall: Now, first up is Hank and Sandra! (camera goes to Hank and Sandra's table) OK, guys, Question 1! Many singers have done well on our game; some of them have even danced to their own songs. Which of these 4 singers never danced to one of their own song during their season of the DWTSGame? A: Ke$ha, B: Cher, C: Justin Bieber, or D: Adam Levine. Talk it out!
Sandra and Hank talk about it for thirty seconds; They are convinced that Ke$ha (A) has never danced to one of her own songs. They go with A.
Kendall: Sorry, guys! I was in the finals with Ke$ha, and that week, she danced a Tango to her song, Run Devil Run. So that is Incorrect! The right answer was C, Justin Bieber.
Brittany: Cher and Tina, Question 2! The Argentine Tango is famous for boosting the scores of many of it’s performers on our game. How many Argentine Tangos have gotten perfect scores on the DWTSGame? A: 1, B: 3, C: 6, or D: 10.
Cher takes over and tells Tina that the highest number is never correct, but that C sounds reasonable. They go with C.
Brittany: Well guys... That is correct! You get 1 point! (audience cheers)
Kendall: Now to Katy and Reese. Question 3: Last season, all 6 stars of the show, FRIENDS, took to the floor, with Jennifer Aniston winning. But which of these 4 placed the worst? A: Courteney Cox, B: Lisa Kudrow, C: Matt Le Blanc, or D: David Schwimmer.
Reese watched Season 20 and knows for certain the David Schwimmer was the first Friend sent home. They go with D.
Kendall: Congrats! That's right! Point 1 for you guys!
Brittany: And now... Tom and Steve! Question 4: During Season 3, the DWTSGame went off air after it received no votes at all while it was running. Who was the last star eliminated before the game took a 13 month long hiatus? A: Rod Blagojevich, B: Tim McGraw, C: Bristol Palin, or D: Fran Drescher.
Neither Steve nor Tom saw Season 3. They are, however, aware of who Rod Blagojevich is. They believe he was the last person eliminated. They go with A.
Brittany: Sorry, guys! Rod Blagojevich was the second to last person eliminated. The last person eliminated was Tim McGraw, so B was the correct answer.
Brittany: Tons of you voted online at dwtsgame4.weebly.com over the past three days with your votes. Sadly, votings are decreasing a little! (audience 'awws')
Kendall: We're going to reveal three couples that are safe to dance next week and one couple that has landed in the bottom-two.
Dramatic elimination theme music plays
Kendall: The first couple safe to dance next week is... (camera pan the couples) ...Steve and Chelsie! (cheers; Steve gives Kendall a 'thumbs-up')
Brittany: The next couple safe to dance is... (camera pans couples) ...TINA and LOUIS! (cheers; Tina hugs Louis)
Kendall: Another couple safe to dance is... (camera pans couples) Sandra and Derek! (cheers; Sandra smiles)
Brittany: Now, let's reveal the first couple in the bottom-two. That couple is... (camera pans couples) Reese and Tony. (boos; Reese frowns)
Regular lighting returns
Brittany: Now, if you missed Wednesday's show, here's a little montage. Take a look...
A montage/recap of all of the dances from Week 8 are played. Confessionals are also played.
Kendall: Ah, some funny stuff! Right now, our musical guest is here, singing his recent hit, please welcome, Kanye West! (major cheers)
Kanye West performs "Power" while his many female dancers do some creative choreography.
Brittany: With pleasure! This round, we have our teams competing in a special Audience Scavenger Hunt! What we've done is surveyed our current audience and recorded down some of them that "stood out" (audience laughs). Our teams will have 3 minutes to find each person on the list and get their signature for their clipboards, The team with the most signatures at the end will get 10 points added to their total for the episode.
Kendall: On the list: a woman in a red suit, a set of male twins, a former DWTS winner, a man with a long white beard, a man in a cowboy hat, and a woman with multi-colored hair. So let's begin! 3, 2, 1... Go!
The stars, who are standing on stage, begin their scavenger hunt. Cher and Tina find the first person on the list, Brooke Burke, who is hiding in the second row behind the judges. They shake her hand and get her signature.
Katy and Reese travel up to the left balcony and find the man with the long white beard. He takes a picture with them and signs their clipboard.
Sandra and Hank are in the audience facing the dancefloor... They scurry around and find the woman in the red suit. The woman is so excited to meet Sandra (as she hugs her) and signs their clipboard.
Steve and Tom go to the audience on the lower right. They find the man with the cowboy hat, who gives Steve his hat in honor. They take a photo together and the man signs their clipboard. They get another surprise when they find the woman with multi-colored hair two rows back. She graciously signs their clipboard.
Time's up. The teams walk back to Kendall and Brittany.
Brittany: Congrats, Steve and Tom! You won that challenge! 10 Points to your team! Our third round is up soon!
Brittany: The next safe couple is... (camera pans couples) ...Tom and Kym! (major cheers; Kym hugs Tom)
Kendall: As you can see, we have 2 couples left up here, 2 spots left in the competition, and 1 spot left in the bottom-two. We will now call the name of the last couple that is safe from elimination. And they are... (camera pans Hank and Katy) ...Katy and Mark! (cheers; Katy is relieved)
Brittany: Which means Hank and Edyta will join Reese and Tony in the bottom-two. (audience 'awws'; Hank is emotionless)
Kendall: Well, luckily you don't have to just yet. Let's start our third and final activity. This time, our teams will pair into teams of four and compete in a relay! Two of our stars will start at the top of our staircase with potato sacks.
Brittany: They must slide down the stairs and run to the second star, who will go to the judges table and search their contents for a special '11' paddle. On the back is the name of an item and where in the studio it is hidden.
Kendall: Then the last two stars in the team will travel to that destination. One will find the item and the other will bring it back to either me or Brittany.
Brittany: The first team to finish the relay will get an extra 20 points and the trophy!
Tom, Steve, Katy, and Reese are Team 1. Hank, Sandra, Cher, and Tina are Team 2.
Tom and Hank start at the top of the stairs in their potato sacks. They slide down and run to tap Steve and Sandra, who run to Carrie Ann and Valerie's seats to search for the 11 paddle.
Steve's paddle says "tap shoe - celebriquarium". Sandra's paddle says "head dress - band". By the time we see Sandra's paddle, Katy and Reese are on their way to the celebriquarium to find the tap shoe. Cher and Tina practically fly to the band area to search for the head dress.
It's a nail-biter as we see both of them fumble in their respective areas. Cher and Tina are curtious and try not to disturb the band. Katy and Reese take the more violent approach and almost destroy the celebriquarium.
Katy screams as she discovers the tap shoe behind a couch, in a small crevice. Katy and Reese move the couch to get the shoe. Reese sprints to Brittany.
Cher gasps as she finds the head dress hidden beneath the drum set. Tina quickly puts the headress on and runs to Kendall. And the first person to reach a host is...
Tina! Team 2 wins the relay! Team 1 graciously accepts defeat.
Brittany: Valiant effort by Team 1 who ends with a combined total of 11 points!
Kendall: But only the team with more points wins.
Brittany: And so we present to Team 2... the Game Day trophy! (audience cheers; Hank, Sandra, Cher, and Tina are handed the small trophy)
Kendall: Guys, how does it feel?
Hank: God, sliding down the stairs was so crazy!
Sandra: I almost fell flat on my face running to Val's desk!
Cher: God, that was so much fun!
Tina: Ay Carumba! I'm keeping this head dress!
Brittany: Well, congrats!
VT plays. Everyone agrees last week's surprise elimination of Rihanna threw off everyone's prediction on who would win. Now that there is no Rihanna, almost all of the remaining say the winner will be Sandra and Derek. Sandra, on the contrary, thinks Katy will steal the win in the end.
Kendall: Before we start the elimination, who do the judges think should go? Carrie Ann, what if Reese were to leave?
Carrie Ann: If Reese were to leave, I would be so upset. I'm rooting for Reese! I'm so upset that she's been having a rough couple of weeks. I think that if she stays we'll really see her shine. (audience cheers quietly, Reese is bummed)
Brittany: Len, you went from giving Hank a 10 last week to an 8 on Wednesday... Would you miss him if he left?
Len: Well, it's no doubt that Hank started out very promising, and last week was just amazing, but this week, that Jive really killed you. If you were to leave tonight, it would really be a loss to the show. (audience cheers quietly; Hank has a stern look)
Dramatic elimination music plays
Kendall: (camera goes to Reese) Reese and Tony. Reese, your Quickstep didn't help or hurt your controversey from last week whatsoever. This is your second time in the bottom-two. Has America given you just enough votes to keep going, again?
Brittany: (camera goes to Hank) Hank and Edyta. Hank, last week you amazed the judges and the audience with a perfect Waltz that left us all breathless. You traded that in this week for a Jive that put you near the bottom of the leaderboard. Has this one bad dance become the end of your dancing journey?
Kendall: (camera pans Reese and Hank) Reese and Tony... Hank and Edyta... On this eighth week of competition, the couple with the lowest overall total and therefore leaving right now is...
Elimination music plays and camera pans in
Kendall: Reese and Tony. (audience 'awws' and gives Reese loud applause)
Brittany: Which means Hank and Edyta, you're safe. (Hank still is mad about landing in the bottom-two; Edyta hugs Reese and Tony, Hanks only shakes their hands)
Brittany: Reese, what a trooper! You sure put up a fight. Is there anything you'll take away from this experience?
Reese: I'm just glad I went out on a good note rather than with a sour fight. It was an amazing journey that I am always going to remember and really goin to miss! And, Tony, I'm so sorry I couldn't get you another trophy!(audience 'awws')
Kendall: So Tony, no trophy to add to the case for this season. Any words for Reese?
Tony: Well, this season, I figured out that if you take puppies, rainbows, and glitter and put them together, you won't get something as sweet as Reese Witherspoon. (audience 'awws') She has been such a nice person and so willing to try new things. Each week working with her was a whole new journey and I'm just proud I got to experience it with her. (Reese crys and hugs Tony; audience gives them a standing ovation)
Brittany: But for now, I'm Brittany Brannon.
Kendall: And I'm Kendall Schmidt!
Brittany: Good night and thank you for watching!
