'My butt is the secret weapon to my Samba': Rob Kardashian comes out as a front runner in DWTS after using his special 'assets'

By Jade Watkins

His sister Kim Kardashian has made a name and millions for herself partly due to hers.

And now it seems younger brother Robert Kardashian is following her lead.

The 24-year-old reality star shimmied and shook his behind on Dancing With The Stars last night to his full advantage.

In fact, he came out as one of front runners on the live show, scoring one of the top scores of the night.

Rob called his advantage early on in rehearsals.

The reality star, who had be told off countless times for sticking his bottom out during his performances, realised his 'assets' would be beneficial to his Samba with partner Cheryl Burke.

Wowing%20the%20crowd:%20Rob%20used%20his%20behind%20to%20wow%20both%20the%20crowd%20and%20the%20judges%20in%20his%20first%20live%20performance%20

Happy: The 24-year-old certainly seemed pleased with himself following the performance

'It's my time to peak,' he said during rehearsals. 'Apparently my butt is my secret weapon to my Samba.'

Rob used his behind as well as his newly found dance skills to wow both the crowd and the judges in his live performance.

'Holy cow! ... It's a booty, booty, booty, Bootylicious... Fantastic!' gushed judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

'That's how you turn a handicap into an 'asset',' added Bruno Tonioli.

Emotional:%20Following%20the%20top%20score,%20Robs%20mother%20Kris%20Jenner%20was%20seen%20bursting%20into%20tears%20from%20the%20crowd,%20clearly%20proud%20of%20her%20son

Cheers: Kris was joined by her husband Bruce Jenner, who sat alongside Rob's sister Kourtney and her tiny tot Mason to cheer Rob on

The couple scored one of the top scores of the night with a 28 out of 30.

Good genes? Rob's sister Kim Kardashian has made a name and millions for herself partly due to her famous behind 

Following the top score, mother Kris Jenner was seen bursting into tears from the crowd, clearly proud of her son.

She was comforted by her husband Bruce Jenner, who sat alongside Rob's older sister Kourtney and her tiny tot Mason.

Before his second dance, the Argentine Tango, Kris told how Rob had to deal with growing up in a household of all girls.

She said she was proud of what he had so far achieved in the competition.

'He entered the competition as a boy. What I see now is this man,' she said proudly.

For his second spin on the ballroom floor, Rob was also praised for being masculine.

'There's no way to fake good dancing,' said Carrie Ann. 'That was good strong dancing, good strong leading.'

'You started out as a goofy outsider. Now you look like a leading man... slick, dark, handsome, in control.' Bruno added.

For the other contestants on last night's show, weeks of intense performances and rehearsals seemed to had taken it's toll.

Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Hope Solo were all suffering from injuries.

Hope particularly was trying to cope with major shoulder pain, a result from an injury she'd received during her career as a World Cup Soccer champion.

During rehearsals the 30-year-old was seen being given three Cortisone shots from her doctor.

'I'm in pain pretty much the entire time on the dance floor,' she revealed.

During the live show, Hope and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy's Pase Doble was criticised for lacking finesse and fluidity.

'Because it had so much attack, it lacked finesse,' Len Goodman said.

Criticised:%20During%20the%20live%20show,%20Hope%20and%20partner%20Maksim%20Chmerkovskiys%20Paso%20Doble%20was%20criticised%20for%20lacking%20finesse%20and%20fluidity%20

'I think you nailed the character of the dance, but what I thought was a little out of synch tonight was the hold,' added Carrie Ann.

The pair received a low 21 out of 30 for their first score.

Before Hope's Argentine Tango, she opened up about her troubled father.

Her mother told how Hope and her brother were kidnapped by her husband, who was later jailed.

Better:%20Maksin%20placed%20Hope%20on%20the%20judging%20panel%20during%20their%20Argentine%20Tango%20

Better: Maksin placed Hope on the judging panel during their Argentine Tango

It was then revealed that the sports star then later fell into depression in 2007, after her father passed away.

After their second spin on the dance floor, Hope and Maks got a much more positive review.

'It was far far better than the Paso Doble,' Len said. 'When you got out on that floor I wasn't disappointed.'

The dance scored them 24 out of 30.

Action star J.R. Martinez also injured himself, twisting his ankle in rehearsals the weekend before.

Whilst attempting to do a move with partner Karina Smirnoff, he fell to the floor in a heap.

Of course, the incident worried the couple in regards to their Zorro-themed rendition of the Paso Doble.

The damage had clearly taken it's toll on the 28-year-old Iraqi War veteran, who was seen staggering off the floor at the end of the energetic live dance.

'The role play was great,' said Bruno. 'The one thing was the posture... It wasn't quite there the whole way through.'

Carrie Ann believed that his injury affected his posture.

But Len was harsh about the ballroom spin: 'This dance didn't suit you at all. It was more zero than Zorro,' he said.

The couple got a 23 out of 30 for their first dance.

J.R. told his story of joining the army ahead of his Argentine Tango.

One of his fellow soldiers told of the tragedy following a serious accident, where the 28-year-old was burnt badly and left permanently disfigured.

Much%20better:%20During%20his%20second%20performance,%20it%20appeared%20that%20the%20actors%20ankle%20had%20stopped%20giving%20him%20so%20much%20grief,%20and%20he%20was%20heaped%20with%20praise%20from%20the%20judges,%20who%20gave%20him%20a%20whopping%2027%20out%20of%2030

Much better: During his second performance, it appeared that the actor's ankle had stopped giving him so much grief, and he was heaped with praise from the judges, who gave him a whopping 27 out of 30

Friends and colleagues then spoke of J.R.'s amazing positivity and ability to overcome tragedy.

During his second performance, it appeared that the actor's ankle had stopped giving him so much grief, and he was heaped with praise from the judges who gave him a whopping 27 out of 30.

Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough had also been suffering from injuries for weeks.

The former talk show host was particularly concerned about 'breaking Derek', as she continued to muse about her weight.

Perfect%20score:%20Ricki%20Lake%20and%20Derek%20Hough%20scored%20a%20perfect%2030%20for%20their%20Samba

Perfect score: Ricki Lake and Derek Hough scored a perfect 30 for their Samba

But for their first dance, the Samba, the duo, who both slipped into eye-watering bright yellow outfits, nailed it, scoring a perfect score of 30.

'Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous,' Len gushed. 'You have just taken a giant step into the final.'

'Sizzling hot, bright and brilliant,' added Bruno.

In her personal tale, Ricki talked about her fluctuating weight.

Svelte:%20Ricki%20looked%20sensational%20in%20a%20red%20asymmetrical%20dress%20for%20her%20Argentine%20Tango%20with%20Hough

Svelte: Ricki looked sensational in a red asymmetrical dress for her Argentine Tango with Hough

She revealed that at her heaviest, she weighed 260 pounds, but later lost a staggering 100 pounds.

It was then when she got her own talk show, The Ricki Lake Show.

Last night, the star looked sensational in a red asymmetrical dress for her Argentine Tango with Hough.

'Ricki, I don't think you know how good that was,' said Len. 'Because it was really, really good.'

She scored a near perfect score of 29.

Relay:%20At%20the%20end%20of%20the%20show%20all%20four%20couples%20faced%20off%20during%20the%20Cha%20Cha%20Relay

Relay: At the end of the show all four couples faced off during the Cha Cha Relay

At the end of the show all four couples faced off for the Cha Cha Relay. 

Hope and Maksim scored the lowest score of four, while Rob and Cheryl got a perfect score of ten.

The couple's scores were added to their individual scores, and in the end Ricki and Derek got the highest score of 67, followed by Rob and Cheryl with 65, J.R and Karina with 56 and Hope and Maks at the bottom of the leader board with 49.
