Chris Soules Is Improving Rapidly On 'DWTS' But Will It Be Enough?

After earning the lowest score last week, Chris Soules made a huge Dancing With the Stars comeback on Monday night. His Argentine Tango earned a 28, which was a full seven points higher than his score last week. It was also his best score of the season. It's clear that Chris really wants this, so he's putting in the work to improve and pulling out all the stops. He even shed his shirt in hopes of channeling the sexiness of the Latin Week dance.

His efforts paid off with the judges who were impressed with his improvement since the previous week. "You are the comeback kid!" Julianne Hough shouted in encouragement. "It was so on point and I'm so impressed." Judge Len Goodman had nothing but praise as well. "You did exactly what you're supposed to do [and] for me that's the best dance you've done," he said.

But while a 28 is a great score for Chris Soules after his 21 last week, it's not necessarily enough to keep him around. Viewer votes only count for so much, and so far the Bachelor's judging scores have been pretty low or middle of the pack. He's going to have to keep working really hard if he ever wants to achieve scores in the 30s like frontrunners Rumer Willis or Riker Lynch.

It's a hard road ahead of him. But if Chris keeps working hard, hopefully he'll continue to improve. With a seven point advancement over last week, who knows how far he can go if he makes it through Monday's elimination? Everything could come up roses for the Bachelor.
