Dancing With the Stars' second week of competition brought more ballroom high jinks and drama from our celebs, including NFL star Jacoby Jones passing gas and Olympian Dorothy Hamill struggling with a cyst in her ankle that moved her way down near the bottom of the pack.

Spotted in the crowd at Monday's show: Sherri Shepherd of The View, Sara Rue, Sean Lowe's fiancee Catherine, and Splash stars Louie Anderson and Katherine Webb.

Last week's scores from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were added to Monday's scores to set the leaderboard for Tuesday's first elimination of the season.

Here's how the stars are stacking up after two weeks of dances:

Zendaya, the teen Disney star who was at the top of the leaderboard going in to Monday's show, seemed to have a little trouble getting used to dancing in heels. Or that's what the show found to be her one weakness during rehearsals. Of course, she overcame it with her flapper jive, kicking and flicking all over the dance floor. "Great job!" said Carrie Ann. "You were fantastic," said Len. "A star is born, big time!" said Bruno. Scores: 9, 8, 9 = 26 + 24 = 50

Kellie Pickler used some old cheerleader moves, at the direction of pro Derek Hough's instruction, for their jazz dance. "The judges are either gonna love it or they're not gonna get it," he said. On the floor, they went last, usually a sign that they'll be really good. And they were. Sexy and fluid and modern, the dance showed off both their hot bods, as Derek danced shirtless and Kellie wore a sparkly silver corset top and boy shorts. They used a light saber and swirling fog to complete the look. "If you're just tuning in, we're playing find the body fat," cracked Tom Bergeron. The judges definitely got it, raving about the country singer's lines, feet and moves. "Kellie Pickler, you are a dancer," said Carrie Ann, standing up. "I'm blown away!" Len said, "Last week was a spark, this week was a fire!" Bruno: "Visually arresting ... extensions to take your breath away. Technically superb!" Scores: 9, 8, 9 = 26 + 21 = 47

Aly Raisman had to work on her face more than footwork, said her partner, USA TODAY blogger Mark Ballas. He wanted the serious gymnast to ham up her quickstep. And she did, smiling through the peppy number. Carrie Ann called it the "best quickstep of the night." Len said it wasn't an easy dance, and told her it was "terrific." Bruno liked her "elegance" and her "personality." Scores: 8, 8, 8 = 24 + 21 = 45

Jacoby Jones performed the first jazz dance of the season. But he also performed the first fart of the season, which he did while rehearsing with pro partner Karina Smirnoff. She refused to pull his finger, but that didn't stop him. On the dance floor, the two pulled off a number filled with razzmatazz, lifts and hand claps. The audience loved it, giving a lengthy ovation. Carrie Ann explained that jazz incorporates a lot of elements. And that was "rocking!" she said. Len said it was "fun" and suited his "strengths." Bruno said it was "like watching a headlining star at the Cotton Club. ... You're a performer, man." Scores: 8, 7, 8 = 23 + 20 = 43

Ingo Rademacher's quickstep had an old-time feel that got mixed reviews from the judges. "Bingo, Ingo," said Len Goodman, although he added the soap star's footwork was "hit and miss." Bruno said Kym Johnson gave him "such hard steps" and that's why he "messed it up a bit." Carrie Ann thought Ingo's "frame" was the problem. She liked his presence. Len argued with her a little bit. Scores: 6, 7, 7 = 20 + 20 = 40

Sean Lowe struggled with the speed of the jive he had to learn for the night. Pro partner Peta Murgatroyd had to keep yelling at The Bachelor star. "She gets in my face, but I probably need that," he said during rehearsals. And he also shared with her, "You wanna know something gross? I never took a shower yesterday or today." Ew. Their beachy jive showed off her figure in a bathing suit and his muscles in a lifeguard tank top. Sean managed to keep up pretty well throughout the dance, even pulling off a cartwheel at the end. Bruno liked his "presence" on the dance floor. Carrie Ann said it was "a solid performance." Len said he didn't get it, saying it was too theatrical and didn't have enough jive. Scores, 7, 6, 7 = 20 + 19 = 39

Andy Dick was proud that he "didn't drink" after week one. His confidence was up. "I hope we blow the audience away!" he said in rehearsals. His jazz dance had a Mad Hatter theme. Performing to Lady Gaga's Poker Face, Andy incorporated silliness along with all sorts of crazy moves, and the crowd loved it. The judges? Said Len: "That was a laugh." Bruno "loved it." Carrie Ann said it allowed him to be "wacko" and "nail it." Scores: 7, 6, 7 = 20 + 17 = 37

Wynonna Judd's motivation for this week? "To not pee my pants," she told partner Tony Dovolani, as she had to learn the quickstep. "It's the hardest physical work I've done in a long time." She cried in rehearsals, overwhelmed with it all. "I'm falling apart." The two drove into the ballroom dressed as police -- Wynonna's red bra was busting out of her cop uniform - with sirens and flashing lights before tackling their dance to Neutron Dance. It wasn't quite as bouncy as most quicksteps, but Wynonna breathed a big sigh of relief when it was over. As she tried to catch her breath, Bruno told her she kind of stopped at the end and must keep going until the number is finished. Carrie Ann said she has great posture. "Now all we need to see is to up it a notch. You're playing it very, very safe." Len said the "engine was running, but she never got out of first gear." Scores: 6, 6, 6 = 18 + 18 = 36

Victor Ortiz was super frustrated during rehearsals, at one point saying, "I can't get the damn footsteps!" He wanted to walk out, but partner Lindsay Arnold talked him back. Their lively jive was red hot (they both wore red), even though his footwork was off at points. Said Len, "It could have been sharper ... cleaner." His attack of the dance made it "scruffy." Bruno said it was like a "zumba dance" and criticized his "bum" and his feet. Carrie Ann, meanwhile, somehow banged her head on the table. But she liked his "charisma." Scores 6, 6, 6 = 18 + 18 = 36

Lisa Vanderpump's partner, Gleb Savchenko, promised to be a "Russian dictator" during rehearsals for the jive. "I'm trying to hold up physically," she said. "It's not easy!" On the dance floor she was a flight attendant to his sexy pilot. She tried to keep up with him, but she was stiff. "It was a bumpy ride," admitted Lisa afterward. "It was a little bit wooden," said Len. "Didn't have enough flow ... It wasn't brilliant." Bruno told her to "contain it." Carrie Ann said Lisa holds herself with such "refinement," but has to let loose a little more. Scores: 6, 6, 6 = 18 + 18 = 36

Dorothy Hamill is having problems with a cyst that's been there "for a while" where the "nerve goes over the bone," she said, favoring her ankle. It left her unable to dance for much of the rehearsal week. "I just don't know if my body's going to let me continue dancing," she said, frustrated. She valiantly tried to pull off a jive with partner Tristan MacManus by wearing flats and powering through. But it was a far cry from last week's winning performance. Afterward, she stuck her bottom lip out and put on a sad face. Bruno called it a "brave attempt." He noted that she lost her "footing so many times." Dorothy nodded as he spoke. Carrie Ann said that what she most sensed was "fear," and that was worse than the ankle trouble. Len said it had "promise" but it was filled with "mistakes." Dorothy seemed to be crying through her smiles. Scores: 5, 5, 5 = 15 + 21 = 36

(We tweeted a get-well wish to Dorothy right after her number and she replied with, "I'll be okay. Just don't want to let Tristan MacManus down.")

D.L. Hughley had a hard time learning this week's quickstep, but partner Cheryl Burke refused to take out any moves. "Does it have to be a marathon of stuff?" he said to her as things getting tense in rehearsals. "What do you want me to do?" shouted Cheryl, walking out after D.L. cursed. The next day Cheryl promised to listen to him. D.L. said he was "humiliated" by last week's scores. "I am determined to redeem myself," he vowed. On the floor, he was much improved. Bruno: "I can really see you worked very hard on that. ... You're not Fred Astaire .. but you did a good job." Carrie Ann: "I could see all the work. ... Good job." Len said the show is about improving each week. "Well done." While waiting for their scores, D.L. told host Brooke Burke-Charvet of their rough week, "We were doing our Whitney and Bobby imitation for a little while. (Now) we're doing great. We're back together. And no restraining orders!" Scores: 5, 5, 6 = 16 + 12 = 28
