Mason native Brant Daugherty continues to impress “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba — but we don’t know how much support he’s getting from viewers.
The 2004 Mason High School graduate from ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” ranked fourth again tonight, with 23 points. Former “High School Musical” dancer Cobin Bleu was first tonight with 26 points.

Inaba called Daugherty’s rumba with Peta Murgatroyd “incredible.” She added: “You can move…. You were wowing us.”
Judge Len Goodman said he “liked” their dance and chemistry. “You’re a terrific looking couple. Your presence on the floor is terrific.” But complained that his feet were “pigeon-toed” while dancing.
Daugherty had to sweat out the final minutes, being the last of nine celebrities to be declared “safe,” and advance to next week’s show. (It’s never clear if they announce the safe couples in chronological order, or just for dramatic impact.)
Eliminated was ESPN analyst/former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, who deserved to go. He got the lowest combined scores from viewers votes last week, and judges votes this week and last week.
The ranking tonight:
26: Corbin Bleu
25: Elizabeth Barkley Lauren, Christina Milian
24: Jack Osbourne, Lean Remini, Amber Riley
23: Brant Daugherty
21: Bill Engvall
20: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
19: Valerie Harper
18: Keyshawn Johnson
17: Bill Nye the Science Guy
