Great news, lovers of bearded and eyeliner-wearing musclemen: Khal Drogo is back on television.
The Dothraki warlord may be dead on Game of Thrones (no, that’s not a spoiler; he bit it way back in season one), but he’s very much alive on Dancing With the Stars.
During the competition’s TV-themed episode last night (September 19), the teams were tasked with choreographing numbers inspired by television theme songs. Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his celeb partner Amber Rose brought the drama by dancing a Viennese waltz set to the GOT theme while dressed as Khal Drogo and Daenerys “Khaleesi” Targaryen, respectively. Sadly, there were no dragons in sight, but it still slayed.
In the end, the duo earned a disappointing 24 points out of a possible 40. But even though the judges weren’t feeling it, Muva was all about her new platinum-haired alter ego, saying, “I love Khaleesi because she’s a powerful woman. She’s not going to stop until she gets the throne.”
We have a feeling that also describes Rose’s attitude toward winning the competition. Better look out, Vanilla Ice.
