Kate Gosselin's partner, Tony Dovolani, walked out of a rehearsal, saying, "I quit," and "I've never been questioned as a teacher before" in a clip that aired Monday night. He returned to practice and the two performed a second-week jive to "I'm Still Standing," but Gosselin didn't show much improvement from her debut. Tonioli called the dance "a nightmare."
Goodman told her that "nerves are breaking you at the moment. What's the worst thing that could happen? Come out and go for it. Go out fighting."
"The Bachelor" Jake Pavelka was praised for his "great energy" by Tonioli, and Inaba said he was "a joy to watch."
Even Goodman said the pilot showed "a lot of potential."
Forty million people watched the first night of "Dancing With the Stars," making it the most-watched premiere ever. The star-studded cast also included NFL star Chad Ochocinco, actor Aiden Turner and host and comedienne Niecy Nash.
Watch "Dancing With the Stars" Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
