We were reminded of Kellie Pickler‘s ‘Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader’ video last night while listening to ‘DWTS: All-Stars’ pro Chelsie Hightower as she struggled with languages spoken in various countries.
The blonde beauty was shown in a rehearsal video clip with her celebrity partner, Indy racer Helio Castroneves. He mentioned to her that his native language is Portuguese. She responded, “I thought you were from Brazil.”
He attempted to explain that was due to settlers who arrived from Portugal back in 1500. He likened it to the fact that they speak Spanish in South America. Hightower got wide-eyed and said in an incredulous tone, “They speak Spanish in South America?”
Tom Bergeron beamed as she tried to explain what she really meant. He warned, “When you’re already in a hole you need to stop digging.”
Chelsie later tweeted, “I had a VERY blonde moment tonight on national tv. Lol. I’m really not that dumb guys.. No seriously I have a high school diploma.”
The first elimination took place last night – see who went home.
