Bindi Irwin has done it again.

The Dancing with the Stars contestant scored her second consecutive 10, after earning the season’s first 10 last week with her tribute to her late father Steve Irwin.

Bindi, 17, was partnered with Val Chmerkovskiy rather than her regular pro Derek Hough – to pleasing results.

“I’m so proud of you,” an emotional Chmerkovskiy told Bindi as they embraced after their Cha-cha.

It was Chmerkovskiy’s brother (and guest judge) Maksim Chmerkovskiy who delivered the ten, making Bindi ecstatic.

“This is the most beautiful family on planet Earth behind the scenes,” Bindi shouted. “I love everyone here and that you so much!”

Bindi earned an impressive 37 out of 40.

“It is amazing to get those scores, and I’m so grateful,” Bindi told PEOPLE backstage. “But I think it’s more of a personal thing and each week has brought a different challenge, and I’ve been glad to try and push myself to reach those goals and do the best job I can.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
