DevelopmentsEdit

Injuries and illnessesEdit

This season was greatly affected by injuries and illness. Beginning with this season, the producers are imposing a maximum five-hour limit on rehearsals as an attempt to reduce injuries, which have been on the rise in recent seasons. Also, contestants must take 30-minute breaks after every two hours and they must take one day off a week. However, in an interview with TV Guide, Maksim Chmerkovskiy said "nobody really follows it":

  • Tom DeLay was reported with having a possible stress fracture in his foot on September 15, 2009, just one week before the competition. The injury did not keep him out of the competition. However, on the October 5 episode, Tom Bergeron stated that the slight fracture had become a full fracture, and DeLay later reported that he had stress fractures in both feet, but that he was not going to continue the competition because of his doctor's advice. On the October 6 results episode, DeLay formally announced that he would not continue as a contestant. He then accepted Bergeron's invitation to dance the Texas/country two-step on the season finale, health permitting.
  • Mýa had to go to the hospital for stitches for a deep cut on September 20, 2009, after a glass shattered in her hand. This injury did not affect her performance.
  • After the September 22 show, Debi Mazar was rushed to the hospital with a torn muscle in her neck and chest.
  • During rehearsal on September 28, Lacey Schwimmer "severely strained" her hip flexors and abductors. Her injuries required three weeks of physical therapy. She continued to dance on the show during her treatments.
  • After the October 19 show, Kelly Osbourne was rushed to the hospital with a foot injury sustained during her paso doble routine.
  • Prior to the October 19 show, Derek Hough was sidelined by a bout of flu. Maksim Chmerkovskiy stepped in to teach and dance with Derek's partner Joanna Krupa.
  • Prior to the November 2 show, Lacey Schwimmer was also sidelined by illness. Anna Trebunskaya stepped in to teach and dance with Lacey's partner Mark Dacascos.
  • Prior to the November 9 show, during week eight rehearsals, both Karina Smirnoff and Aaron Carter came down with the flu. Although this did not affect their ability to perform, they were eliminated that week.
  • In an interview on the finale, Mýa said that she was dancing on a sprained ankle for five weeks.
