How do the stars plan to improve this week in order to stay in the competition?

Some of the couples shared their strategies going into week six with ET! 

#TeamSTARK plans to continue to deliver surprises.

"I just love to create, so having someone [like Lindsey] who's down and who's up for it, we get along really well, enjoy coming up with music ideas together, concepts... that's the fun part for me," Mark explained. "The fact that she's just super down for anything and just throws herself 100 percent into whatever we do. That makes it a lot of fun."

#TeamGetchaPopcorn is focusing on having fun.

Week after week, Terrell continues to improve, and he credits it all to his pro partner, Cheryl. "I owe it all to her," he said. "I'm not a ballroom dancer."

"Everything we're doing in rehearsal, it's a lot of hard work," he added. "It's frustrating, it's exhausting, but at the same time, I'm enjoying it. It's a lot of fun."

#TeamFishUponAStar hopes to stay on top!

After receiving the first perfect score of the season last week, Jordan and Lindsay need to work extra hard to prove that they still got plenty of tricks up their sleeves. 

"I've never gotten the first perfect score of any season I've been on, so this is a first for both of us," said Lindsay, who has yet to nab a mirrorball trophy. "It's pretty cool we get to have that together because it's a big thing."

"At the end of the day, everybody's training is different," added Jordan. "Our goal is as partners is to get better every week. That's the ultimate goal, and thus far, we have managed to get a better score each week. Hopefully America votes for us and keeps us on the show!"

#TeamViVa isn't comparing themselves to their competitors.

"We're in a competition in our own," Val explained. "We're in our own little journey ... we have five weeks now worth of awesome dances. [Victoria's] got six cool, awesome, epic dances to be proud of."

"I just want to keep going," he added. "I have ideas for weeks for us, so I just want to make sure we're still in the competition, so we can realize those ideas."

#TeamFranneyPack is trying to avoid the tears.

Frankie and Witney admitted that placing in the bottom two last week was a terrifying moment. "We don't want to go home, so please vote for us because we don't want to go anywhere," said Witney. "Frankie almost cried. He had a little tear in his eye, I swear."

"I do not want to go home," Frankie exclaimed. "I'm having way too much fun. Honestly, this is my favorite thing I've ever done."

Social media teases.
