Fans of Dancing with the Stars (on ABC) were witness to one of the their favorites - Kirstie Alley falling,  as her and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy began their routine.

If you missed it, you can watch it here.

Kirstie is one of the fan favorites and has been boasting of huge weight loss amounts since agreeing to start the contest.  Kirstie joked that she needs to win this competition if she is to hit her weight loss goals.  On average, Kirstie Alley has been losing 5+ pounds each week.

Despite falling, her and Maksim scored a 21, placing them in the middle of the pack.  Combining that score with her routine tonight and then adding in the fan voting, Kirstie should be sticking around to loose at least 5 more pounds.  But we'll all find out together on tonight's Dancing with the Stars elimination show.

Are you routing for Kirstie Alley to win?  Or one of the other Celebrities?  If so, which one is your favorite?
