She's been touted as a tomboy who has a penchant for sports and rap music.

And Kendra Wilkinson had to face her fears of becoming ladylike on the dance floor on last night's episode Dancing With The Stars.

After charming the judges with a challenging cha-cha last week, the second round of the competition was the Former Playboy Playmate and reality star's biggest challenge.

Battle: Kendra revealed her struggle to be ladylike on last night's  Dancing With The Stars

In rehearsals, the mother-of-one broke down in tears as she struggled to come to terms with the task.

'I don't feel beautiful, I feel like a boy,' she cried.

'This is so much more about dancing for me, this is about being someone I never thought I could be.'

Kendra looked stunning in her strapless gown and her hair in a pretty up-do as she took to the floor with partner Louis Van Amstel.

But while Kendra tried to do her best to be lady-like during the routine, she was told that she neglected her technique.

'It is tough being a lady isn't it?' Bruno Tonioli questioned the 25-year-old during judging.

'You tried your best, but you were very tight... You messed up your steps numerous times.'

But Carrie Ann Inaba was impressed by her 'polished' performance.

Poised: The former Playboy model did an elegant jive with partner Louis van Amstel

'I saw more than just choreography,' she said. 'I saw new-found elegance.'

As always Len Goodman couldn't help but make a cheeky remark: 'Your posture was a bit hit and miss, but occasionally your chesticals were digging into Louis.'

Boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard also didn't have much luck with his jive steps with partner Anna Trebunskaya.

The 54-year-old was criticised for his sloppy dance moves in a scathing review by Len.

'After that performance I think that you are in jeopardy... it lacked refinement and and dance quality,' he said.

Bruno said that it lacked any strength: 'It was softer around the edges, it needed more punch.'

But Carrie Ann enjoyed Sugar Ray's James Brown impersonation.

'If I just watched you face alone, I would say borderline ten,' she said.

Disney star Chelsea Kane and her partner Mark Ballas did a circus inspired jive for their round on the dance floor, which came with mixed reviews.

Too casual: Chelsea and Mark's performance came with mixed reviews with the judges saying it lacked any kind of 'technique'

'I love this type of choreography and there is a time and a place for it... and tonight wasn't it,' Carrie Ann said.

'I didn't see enough jive in it.'

Len agreed that the performance was too casual and lacking in any technique.

'It was too much messing about and larking around,' he said.

But Bruno disagreed with both of his fellow judges: 'I like the weird and wonderful side of it... I really enjoyed it.'

Wrestler Chris Jericho who is known for his masculine physic and incredible strength, surprised the judges with his light feet.

Petra%20Nemcova

Daring: Supermodel Petra Nemcova continued on her role as the season's princess but this week went a little bit risqué with her belly baring outfit much to the delight of judge Bruno Tonioli

Supermodel Petra Nemcova continued on her role as the season's princess but this week went more risqué with a belly baring sparkling outfit.

And while the judges were worried that her height would hamper her ability to do the quickstep, she  managed well with Dmitry Chaplin, despite her 'lack of bounce' and hesitation.

But Bruno told the 25-year-old that she needed to work on her core strength.

'What you have to do is work on your core,' he said.'But your performance was great tonight.'

Before her live performance, Kirstie Alley once again made it clear that losing weight was her main incentive to win.

'I have 40 more pounds to lose, so I have to make the final,' she said. 'I have a double incentive to be here.'

And while the 60-year-old Cheers star's high-cardio performance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy may have caught her out-of-breath, she showed that she was the consummate performer.

Not just good looks: Despite being blown away by her appearance Bruno told the 25-year-old that she needed to work on her core strength

'Kirstie you are so in your element... you are so in tune,' said Carrie-Ann.

'The connection with you and Max will be unstoppable.'

Bruno agreed, but said that she needed to focus on her talent abilities rather than her weight.

'You don't need to worry about that when you have talent,' he said. 'You can do it and believe in yourself.'

Determined to come back from his disastrous performance with dance partner Lacey Schwimmer last week,  Radio show host Mike Catherwood mused 'it is jive or die time'.

And while the pair steamed it up on the dance floor with their sexy performance of the quickstep, the judges all agreed that it was 'all over the place.'

'Mike I have to say... you looked like a fly on stuck on fly paper,' said Bruno.

'You have to think the whole routine', suggested Carrie Ann.

But the king of the dance floor definitely belonged to rapper Romeo.

The judges were blown away by the 21-year-old 's performance with Chelsie Hightower.

'That was the best dance of the night!' praised Len.

Bruno was equally excited: 'I tell you Romeo, you are the one to watch... you just went into many of the facets of the dance.'

Chat show host Wendy Williams showed more of what the judges were looking for in her round with partner Tony Dovolani; her personality.

'That was what we wanted to see, Wendy Williams out there on the dance floor having fun,' said Carrie Ann.

 'It was good to see a little bit of who you are... it was step in the right direction,' added Bruno.

After an impressive performance with Karina Smirnoff last week, Karate Kid star Ralph Macchio surprisingly failed to impress the judges with his energetic and excited jive that according to the trio, distracted him.

'It was ok... you overdid it,' said Len. 'You attacked the dance too much and it just got a bit frenzied. The jive requires extreme precision... and you lost timing twice.'

And just like last week, former NFL footballer Hines Ward dazzled on the hand of Kym Johnson, scoring one of the top scores of the night with 23 points.

The couple carved up the dance-floor to the tune of Stevie Wonder's Part Time Lover.

Bruno got off his chair to praise the 35-year-old.

'Forget part-time lover, think full-time dancer!,' he exclaimed.

Len also agreed: 'You had good movement around the floor, I was very impressed!'

Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskay, Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani and Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer all received the lowest scores with 17 points, while Hines Ward and Kym Johnson, Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke, Romeo and Chelsie Hightower were at the top of the leader board with 23 a piece.

Tomorrow night one dance partner will be voted off.

Rapper Chris Brown will also perform.
