Maria not only continues to slap dicks off on DWTS she continues to put up perfect scores as well. After a trying week Maria and her partner Derek Hough put it together. Via Us Magazine:
When her partner felt stuck trying to come up with another original routine, Menounos took him aside for a pep talk. "You're the best at this," she told Hough. "You just have to shift your mind. That's what champions do." Their positivity and hard work paid off--big time. Following their sexy Argentinian tango, Menounos and Hough received another perfect score, earning 10s from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Len Goodman. After their performance, Menounos choked back tears. With his arm around his emotional partner, Hough told host Brooke Burke Charvet that the Extra anchor continues to astound him. "She's been an absolute warrior from day one," he beamed.
