It's tough to decide which celebrity is actually deserving of elimination on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars. They are, after all, All-Stars and therefore (presumably) good. But someone has to go in week 1. And here are our picks.

Most Likely to Go Home

Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus
Score
= 17
With the lowest score of the night and a rather off performance, Pamela and Tristan are in a great deal of danger. Of course, Pamela's sex appeal might carry her for a week or two. But it will be hard.

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
Score
= 19.5
Can Bristol's supporters in the Tea Party carry her in this All-Star season? We will find out over the next few weeks. If they can't, Bristol is in trouble. She was out-danced by most of the competition and -- while greatly improved -- still isn't much of a performer.

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson
Score
= 20.5
Joey definitely has his fans, and the performance was a lot of fun. But Joey and Kym had both low-ish scores and the misfortune of dancing first. That puts them in danger.


Most Deserving of Elimination

Pamela and Tristan
They really were the worst dancers of the night. It's unfortunate, since Pamela is interesting and Tristan is adorable. But it does seem like they're the ones to go first.


Should Be Worried

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Score
= 19
With such a low score, any other couple would be in serious danger of elimination. But Kirstie and Maks are super-popular and always crowd-pleasing. The voters will probably forgive mediocre dancing for a few weeks.

Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower
Score
= 21.5
His season was awhile ago and he's a racecar driver, so there's a chance that many in the audience are less familiar with Helio than with other celebrities on the show. If that's the case, we need to see more personality for Helio to be safe.

Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya
Score
= 21.5
Drew has that "greatest dance of all time" cache going for him, but he has to live up to it if he wants continued support. It's probably enough for week 1 though.

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy
Score
= 21.5
People didn't expect too much from the season 1 winner. But she did an awfully good job despite those low expectations. Hopefully surprise (and soap opera fans) will be enough to move Kelly through.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
Score
= 21
Despite a lovely performance, Melissa and Tony had scores on the lower end of the group. And it's not certain that Melissa has a lot of fans. She was far from the worst this week, but Melissa needs to be careful.


Probably Safe... For Now

Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel
Score
= 22.5
Their scores were good, Sabrina was the fan choice, and everyone still feels bad that she was eliminated early in her original season. There may not be fan support in the long-term, but Sabrina should be good for at least the first week.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough
Score
= 22
Their scores were only this low because their foxtrot wasn't exactly a foxtrot. But Shawn and Derek had an excellent performance sure to be a hit with the  fans.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff
Score
= 22
The dance went well, and everyone loves Apolo. This guy is competition however you look at it.

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd
Score
= 24
Um, did you **see how sexy this performance was? There is absolutely no way fans will send Gilles home for a very long time.

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke
Score
= 24.5
The final dance of the night and the highest scores combine to make Emmitt and Cheryl untouchable. As it should be.
