Former Bachelor contestant Chrystal Chenery has pipped Simon Barnett to top the Dancing With the Stars leaderboard at the end of week six.
Chenery and partner Jonny Williams received a pair of 10s for their cha-cha to the Prince song Kiss for a near-perfect score of 29.
Close behind them on the leaderboard was Simon Barnett, who matched his top score of 28 from last week with a samba to Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar On Me, and actress Siobhan Marshall, who danced a salsa to the Whitney Houston anthem I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
Less successful was Ben Barrington's pasadoble to Another One Bites the Dust, which received the night's lowest score of 20. Shane Cameron and Jay-Jay Harvey both scored 23.
