Chris Jericho, Former WWE Star, First Eliminated from Celebrity Duets

There were no steel chairs or choke holds that could help Chris Jericho last night.

The ex-WWE Champion was the first celebrity contestant eliminated from FOX's Celebrity Duets. Unlike the wrestling world, no script could save this star.

Jericho is the lead singer for Fozzy, but that hard rock experience didn't play much of a role on the show's premiere. He received a lukewarm response from the judges for his take on "Mendocino County Line," sung without feeling alongside country music star Lee Ann Womack.

Up next was "Signed, Sealed and Delivered," a duet with Peter Frampton. This tune drew a few props from the audience, but it just wasn't enough. Having been stuck with Carly Patterson as the final two celebrities, Jericho was then given the boot. But not the wrestling kind.

While it's early, Queer Eye Jai Rodriguez emerged as the judges' favorite. But that won't matter next week: fans take over the voting. And any chance Paris Hilton had of winning gets flushed down the toilet.

Just like the lunch of former best friend, Nicole Richie.
