Chaz Bono’s Sassy Samba on DWTS

He’s still in the running after multiple weeks on “Dancing with the Stars” and Chaz Bono earned a standing ovation from the audience last night for his Samba.

Joined by partner Lacey Schwimmer, the 42-year-old author/activist tried his best to add some flash to the spirited dance number.

Lacey explained, “Chaz’s weakness with the samba is mainly just him being shy. Him shaking his butt in front of millions of people is not his forte.”

And after Bono and Schwimmer received straight 7s, judge Bruno Tonioli declared, "You've got the bounce going. It was like a dribbling basketball! You were giving the wiggle, which is not easy to do."
