'Dancing With the Stars' Maksim bares his chest; Erin Andrews scores double nines

maksim-shirtless-erin-andrews2.jpgBefore Len Goodman scolded Nicole Scherzinger for her botafogo-lacking, over-sexed samba, he laid into Erin Andrews for, well, not being on Scherzinger's level.

"She should be competing with Nicole!" exclaimed Goodman to Andrews' partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The Russian pro dancer upset Goodman on Monday's (April 26) "Dancing With the Stars" by stripping down to his bare chest during the samba. "I'm fed up, Maks, with shirts coming off," said the disapproving judge. (Although evidently none of the judges seemed to mind when Jake Pavelka went pantsless last week. Hmmm.)

The use of a blindfold in Chmerkovskiy's April 5 routine also got a big thumbs down from Goodman. And it would seem that the judge is taking out his frustrations over Chmerkovskiy's clothing and prop choices on Andrews.  

"I've given you a seven every week," Goodman said to Andrews. "You should be getting eights, nines and tens!"

Alas, Andrews received yet another seven from him.

But just as with Scherzinger's routine, Goodman was the only judge who frowned upon her performance. Bruno Tonioli said, "It's not her who choreographed the routine," and then gave Andrews props for doing it "all the way through." Carrie Ann Inaba thought Andrews "nailed it," adding that she personally "loved it." Tonioli and Inaba both awarded her nines.
