Good thing they're quick on their feet!
Dancing with the Stars suffered a major setback this week when Tamar Braxton was forced to withdraw from the competition just a day after Alexa PenaVega was eliminated.
While this may not sound like a huge peril to casual Reality TV viewers, ABC is actually scrambling to figure out how to fill the required number of episodes despite being down a contestant.

Luckily, the remaining competitors — Alek Skarlatos, Carlos PenaVega, Bindi Irwin, and Nick Carter — are pretty flexible and have agreed to add a third dance to next Monday's packed episode.
In addition to a regular routine and a choreographed threesome with eliminated pros, the stars will have to face each other one-on-one with Alek going head-to-head against Carlos and Bindi battling Nick.
Unfortunately, this means Alexa will not be returning to the competition, but it should be nice seeing Karina Smirnoff, Mark Ballas, Peta Murgatroyd, and Emma Slater back on stage for the trios!
Who's your pick to win DWTS this year??
