 Sabrina Bryan dismisses injury and takes top spot on Dancing with the Stars Sabrina Bryan dismisses injury and takes top spot on Dancing with the Stars

Sabrina Bryan has overcome a minor arm injury to finish first on the second week of Dancing With The Stars: All Stars on Monday (01Oct12). The actress was voted in by the fans to join the competition this season, and Sabrina proved to the viewers that they made the right decision. For their second week on the dance floor, Bryan and and partner Louis Van Amstel decided to step up their game by incorporating more difficult moves to keep up with the immense amount of talent on the field. In rehearsal, the pair managed to fly up three steps of stairs, but Van Amstel lost his grip, and Bryan fell on the ground with a cut on her arm. Determined to move out of seventh place, the former Cheetah Girl decided to keep the trick in. Luckily, the pair nailed the maneuver during the live show, and walked away with the highest score of the night, including scoring the season's first nine, and receiving a 26 out of 30. Judge Bruno Tonioli gushed, "Is it Ginger Rogers at her best? The variations were incredible. A dazzler." Also overcoming an injury was actor Gilles Marini, who pulled his hamstring even before the season started. The injury started to flare up again, and Marini was required to seek medical help to tend it. He was eventually cleared to dance, and the French hunk took on the Jive as if he had no injury at all. The judges gave Marini a score of 25.5, landing him right behind Bryan, and in the exact same position he was in from the previous week. Receiving the lowest score of the night with an 18, was Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas. Although Palin admitted she felt at ease and related to the song choice of Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson, it was not enough to impress the judges.
