Mike Catherwood, Wendy Williams, and Sugar Ray Leonard were all at the bottom of the scoreboard when they met their makers on “Dancing with the Stars.” So, does that mean that one of this week’s lowest-scoring couples – a tie between Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff, Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin, and Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel – was eliminated?

***SPOILER ALERT***

Indeed it does.

The fourth celebrity dismissed from the dance floor was Petra Nemcova and her partner Dmitry Chaplin. “It’s been life-changing journey for me and I met amazing friends,” Petra said, adding that she’s glad to have had a forum to promote her charity, the Happy Hearts Fund.

Though, in the post-show interviews, the superhappy supermodel said that her Fund might have been what sent her home. She explained, “Today, which kind of surprised me a little bit, that I talk about Happy Hearts to get votes,” she explained. “That hurts because it’s not true. It’s who I am. Happy Hearts is my life. It’s not to get votes, so that’s maybe something that didn’t translate completely.”

That said, she was thrilled to give the charity what it needed: more exposure. “There is a reason for everything in life. I believe that what’s happening is that something new and beautiful is beginning. I was asked to be places where I can make the most difference where I can be the best service to others; I came here to raise awareness about happy hearts fund. That has been achieved. So many more people know about happy hearts fund and the work we do to rebuild the lives of children after natural disasters,” she added.

Joining the couple in jeopardy were, shocker, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and, another shocker, Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke.

Elsewhere on the results show…

DWTS” and “American Idol” Unite (sort of): Big announcement! “American Idol” loser Pia Toscano – who’s been dating Mark Ballas – will sing on “Dancing with the Stars” next Tuesday while Mark dances.

Boy Bands Collide: ’90s heartthrob flashback alert, when New Kids on the Block and The Backstreet Boys also be perform next week on “DWTS.”

Encore, Encore! Len Goodman surprised many by picking Romeo and Chelsie Hightower’s “New York, New York” Fox Trot. Yes, it was good. But we’re still uncertain who the rapper’s fan base is and if he’s really connecting with the audience or not. Also: How did Hines Ward feel about not getting the encore even though he scored the highest? Hmmm.

Quote of the Night: Maks calling himself “sex on a stick.” He went on in a funny bit – narrated by booted babe Mike Catherwood – about how he’s not cocky, he just can see himself in the mirror and sees how sexy he is. Funny … because it’s true. Petra’s reaction: “Not oh my God, but oh my Maks.”

Blooper of the Night: Brooke Burke strikes (or strokes) out again! She couldn’t get a handle on the word “incomparable” last week, and this week’s trouble came in the form of a little word called “choreography.”

Maks & Lacey’s Misstep to Toby Keith: The country singer performed “American Soldier” accompanied by married pros Anna Trebunskaya and Jonathan Roberts, and “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Lacey Schwimmer and the “Dancing with the Stars” Dance Troupe. And, yes, that was a faux pas with Lacey and Maks. Oopsie. Frankly, I’d like to see more dance pros dancing rather than this new fangled Dance Troupe.
