  1. Alex injured his Achilles tendon while rehearsing and was unable to dance for the July 7, 2010 performance show. After being automatically placed in the bottom 3 with Billy Bell and Ashley Galvan, Wong learned he would require surgery and at least 3 months of recovery time. Because of this he was forced to withdraw from the competition on the July 8 results show, thus sparing both Bell and Galvan from possible elimination.
  2. Galvan sustained an injury on Monday July 12, 2010. Unable to perform, she was automatically placed in the bottom 3 for the week with Billy Bell and Jose Ruiz. Ultimately she was forced to withdraw from the competition on the July 15 results show, thus sparing both Bell and Ruiz from possible elimination.
  3. Bell was cleared by doctors to dance, but elected not to perform. The judges decided not to eliminate anyone, forcing a double elimination in week 7.
