Imagine this: Monday night, you're required to dance the sexy, intimate rumba with your beautiful dance partner, Anna Trebunskaya.

Now imagine that you're a very faithful person and you're dancing that sexy, intimate rumba on the 13th wedding anniversary with your real-life wife, Brenda Warner.

What to do? What to do?

"I'm gonna need a really nice gift, I am assuming," Kurt Warner said before Monday's telecast of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

Being on the show has been a labor of love for Warner. He wanted to appear on the dance show because he is "dedicated to impacting lives by promoting Christian values." In fact, Warner was so uncomfortable having to learn the sexy dance last week that Trebunskaya invited her own husband, dancer Jonathan Roberts, and Brenda Warner to the rehearsal.

Well, the hard work didn't really pay off as the duo didn't wow the judges Monday. They scored 34 out of 60, as it was a night of double scores -- technique and performance -- in the fourth week of the show.

The big winners Monday night were Jennifer Grey/Derek Hough (56 out of 60, including 2 perfect 10s), Brandy/Maksim Chmerkovskiy (48) and the surprising couple of Audrina Patridge/Tony Dovolani (46). Rick Fox, the other athlete alongside Warner, and his partner Cheryl Burke finished with 39 points.

Likely to go home Tuesday night will be Florence Henderson/Corky Ballas, Bristol Palin/Mark Ballas or Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino/Karina Smirnoff.
