'Dancing With the Stars' Finalists Visit 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' (Video)
The three remaining contestants of Dancing With the Stars, Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez, dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday.
Soccer star Hope Solo who was eliminated from the show that night, did not make a late-night show appearance as many other ousted contestants had in the past.
Kimmel asked the contestants if they were surprised that they were the final three left on the dancefloor.
“I know for a fact that I wasn’t a favorite of any of you guys,” said Lake. She called it “a miracle” that she was in the finals.
When asked if he thought he was better than his sister (Kim Kardashian) dancing-wise, Rob Kardashian said, “I would hope so.” Lake said that Kardashian gets “Most Improved.”
Kimmel asked each of them who was the favorite to win. Lake pointed at Kardashian. “Here’s the thing, I think he could win it because of all his fans and his sisters’ fans.”
Martinez talked about his military experience, and Lake, who is engaged discussed dancing at her upcoming wedding. Lake said her DWTS partner, Derek Hough, has offered to help her fiancé learn some moves. When Lake imppromptly asks the other contestants if they will come to her wedding, Kimmel can’t help but throw out a zinger about Rob Kardashian’s sister Kim’s ill-fated 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.
“Don’t have Rob at the wedding, he’s bad luck at weddings,” said Kimmel.
Kardashian seems to laugh along, sayin, “It’s all good I like comedy.”
“I would like to see an all-Kardashian edition of Dancing With the Stars,” added Kimmel.
As for the final competition, the three contestants said they will be leaving it all on the dancefloor. “All the chips are in,” said Martinez. “It’s now or never.”
