MAY 6, 2008

Cristian de la Fuente's injured left arm wasn't enough to stop him from shooting to the top of the Dancing With the Stars leader board for the first time after last night's judging. Though doctors recommended immediate surgery on the injured wing, Cristian opted to continue in the competition. Thanks to brilliant choreography by partner Cheryl Burke and Cristian's determination, the pair pulled off two nearly flawless dances. Unfortunately for Jason Taylor, life at the top of the leader board was short lived. The N-F-L star and partner Edyta Sliwinska tumbled to fourth place after their sexy tango was canceled out by a so-so samba. Kristi Yamaguchi held steady in second place followed by Mario. Though the judges seemed pleased with Marissa Jaret Winokur's two dances, it wasn't reflected in the scores as she and partner Tony Dovolani landed in last place.

Tonight is the 100th episode of the show. In addition to the elimination, many stars of the past will be on tap to present the Top 10 dances of the series.

According to a new survey, more Americans would rather have FREE TIME... than money.

Most Americans said that free time was also more important than a successful career... getting married... and having children.

You, however, TOTALLY DISAGREED! 89% of the listeners in our poll said, "Show me the money!"
