The new season of “Dancing With the Stars” premiered last night . . . and the big question has been answered: CHAZ BONO ain’t half bad. In fact, he was kinda GOOD.
The judges LOVED Chaz’s upbeat attitude, and the way he threw himself into his dance. Technically, he wasn’t the best out there . . . but he wasn’t the worst, either.
He ended the night with a total score of 17 . . . which put him at about the middle of the pack. “Queer Eye” star CARSON KRESSLEYalso got 17.
The WORST dancer last night was Laker RON ARTEST . . . or METTA WORLD PEACE if you prefer. He got a 14.
Then came GEORGE CLOONEY’S ex-girlfriend, ELISABETTA CANALIS, who was surprisingly BAD. She got a 15.
Another PLEASANT surprise last night was NANCY GRACE, who danced better than probably ANYONE expected.
Nancy and ROB KARDASHIAN each got a score of 16.
The dancers to beat at this point are CHYNNA PHILLIPS and actor (slash) Iraq war vet J.R. MARTINEZ . . . who tied atop the leader board with 22.
Women’s soccer minx HOPE SOLO was right behind them with 21.
RICKI LAKE got 20 points.
KRISTIN CAVALLARI earned 19.
And DAVID ARQUETTE . . . who you can tell is going to be one of the most FUN contestants to watch this season . . . finished with 18.
One of these people who is NOT CHAZ BONO will be going home tonight.
