"Fuller House" star Jodie Sweetin wowed the crowd and judges in this week's "Dancing with the Stars" episode by going through her nearly perfect routine despite recently suffering from an injury. Although she admitted that the experience was painful, she said that she's determined to carry on with her rehearsals and her routine.
Monday night marked the sixth week of the 22nd season of "Dancing with the Stars." For this week, Famous Dances Night, which means contestants had to perform dance routines from pop culture.
For their performance, Sweetin and her partner Keo Motsepe chose to do the dance routine from Pink's "Try" music video. But, as they practicing a particular part in their routine, which involved Sweetin supporting the weight of Motsepe, the two fell and the latter fell on the former's foot. The incident caused Sweetin to squirm and scream in pain.
"I was in so much pain," she told U.S. Weekly according to U.S. Magazine. "I thought for sure, with the way I rolled my foot and [Keo] fell on the outside bone, that that was it. I was in so much pain I thought there was no way that the bone couldn't be broken."
Fortunately, after being rushed to the hospital, she found that there were no broken bones in her foot and that she can still continue to rehearse. However, the doctor warned her to be careful with her movements.
"I got X-rays, and luckily it's just a bad bone bruise," she told People. "The doctor told me that it would be painful if I wasn't careful, but I was allowed to return to rehearsal."
"I want to make sure that we do a great job with the routine, but more importantly I have to be careful I don't injure myself more and jeopardize my chance at continuing to compete," she added.
Then, on Monday, viewers and judges saw just how technical Sweetin and Motsepe's routine really was, which mainly involved a lot of lifts and gravity-defying moves.
Still, despite the setback she encountered last week, Sweetin and her partner were still able to impress the judges with their performance, earning a score of 25 out of 30.
