Sadly, it was Alley who was the first star of the night to be sent home. The actress, 61, said it was an "honor" to be asked back on the show for the All-Stars competition.
"It was very special to me," she said. "I wanted to thank Maks because he's so patient with me."

"In the end, it's just an incredible experience . . . I tried my very best," the actor, 36, said. "I want to thank my wife . . . without her, I'm really nothing."
