Artem Chigvintsev's DWTS Blog Week #2: 'I Don't Think The Judges Scored Us Fairly'

Every week, professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev will be writing a blog for JustJared.com and sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from Dancing With the Stars.

For week two, Artem dishes about his Quickstep with celeb partner Maureen McCormmick, where they paid tribute to The Brady Bunch and even recruited Maureen‘s on-screen mom, Florence Henderson for the performance.

“The best behind the scenes moment of the week was for sure when one of the troupe dancers [Hayley Erbert] totally fell during our dress rehearsal! I posted it on Instagram yesterday.

“Our costumes this week required a lot a googling of the 70′s. We took advice from Maureen because she knows best. This week I really felt like we overcame Maureen‘s nervousness. She did much better! I think the judges didn’t score us fairly. But I could be bias.

“This week’s inspiration was the Brady Bunch! This week I’m just continuing to learn more patience. The biggest surprise of the week was Sasha [Farber] and Terra [Jole]. She did great!”

Artem Chigvintsev Thinks Maureen McCormick Deserved Higher 'DWTS' Premiere Scores - Read His Week One Blog!

Every week, professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev will be writing a blog for JustJared.com and sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from Dancing With the Stars.

For week one, Artem opens up about his Viennese Waltz with partner Mauren McCormmick, set to “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” which earned them 22 points.
