Welcome to a special tequila-drenched episode of “The Host’s Leaderboard,” my weekly chat with Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron. We’re so wasted!

On week 8, Tom gifts us with a Walter Brennan reference, reminds us of a Karate Kid/DWTS plot connection, SWEARS because the internet is not the same as liiiiiiive TV, and plugs his book! Okay, Romeo. I’m already on the edge of my seat for Tom’s expert mime exhibition, tentatively scheduled for the last episode EVER.

Press the “play” triangle to hear my imaginary friend in all his alternate-universe glory!
