    As one of our members pointed out, leaving the 4th couple in 2nd place while the 5th
    couple starts is particularly hard on the original 2nd couple, as they only dance
    once as 2nd couple & twice as dancing couple. It is slightly fairer for the 4th
    couple to dance once as dancing couple and then slip to the bottom, as then the
    original 2nd couple are at least involved 4 times!
