This is exactly what producers of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" wanted: no clear-cut leader and no clear-cut followers.
On Tuesday night, two of the final seven couples will be sent home on the dance-elimination show.
The three contestants who are athletes -- Olympic speedskating champion Apolo Ohno, football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith and Olympic gymnastics champion Shawn Johnson -- were once again in the middle of the pack.
Ohno and partner Karina Smirnoff scored 29.5 in the tango and 29 in the jive with Smirnoff and Sasha Farber.
What a fun night! My pops was in town, friends and family. Fun filled dances with lots of energy and I even ziplined down the stage. #DWTS
