Answer: Meadows Field Airport

Kristi Yamaguchi and partner Mark Ballas racked up the first perfect score of the season with their jumping jive, putting them at the top of the competitors on last night's Dancing With the Stars.

Judge Len Goodman called Mario's steamy rumba "raunchy." Despite the comment and an illegal lift, the judges rewarded him with second place.

Cristian de la Fuente redeemed himself from his finish in the bottom two last week with an impressive fox trot that landed him and partner Cheryl Burke in third.

Marissa Jaret Winokur continued to improve, and the judges took notice giving her elegant waltz a score of 26.

Jason Taylor and Shannon Elizabeth, who were tough to beat in early weeks, tied for fifth place.
Though the judges praised her as an inspiration, Marlee Matlin's mambo suffered from poor timing and put her in last place.
