Rob Kardashian says he hasn't lost any confidence, and has to "shake it" after week six of "Dancing With The Stars."
The 24-year-old television personality, and brother to reality star Kim, and two-time champion Cheryl Burke, 27, received 22 out of 30 from the judges for their Broadway-inspired Cha-Cha-Cha in week six of ABC's hit celebrity ballroom dancing series (read recap). The pair ended the night in fifth place.
"The judges have their opinions, and it matters, but you know I felt very confident, very good, it was very musical, Broadway - I feel like it was everything it should have been," Kardashian added. "I haven't lost any confidence or anything, I still feel good about it."
Kardashian went on to describe his comfort level with the dance moves and flashy costumes.
"I mean, I'm as comfortable as I can be, it's Broadway week," Kardashian added. "I'm wearing, well you don't see it now, but I was wearing a red sparkly - I mean, you know, you gotta get into it. She's telling me to shake it, so I gotta shake it."
Burke spoke up about fellow professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy's lashing out at the judges, and said she can understand where he's coming from.
"Maks has his opinion, and sometimes, you know, I agree," Burke added. "I mean we work so hard, and you know, it would be nice for us not to be criticized when we're trying to make our celebrities look good."
Contestant J.R. Martinez, known for his work in the military and roles in television shows such as "All my Children," and professional partner Karina Smirnoff tied with television personality Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough for the top score of 29 out of 30 for their Quicksteps. Both pairs received scores consisting of two 10s and a nine.
The seven remaining pairs will return on Tuesday, October 25 for an elimination episode where the sixth couple is expected to be sent packing.
