Rick Fox Eliminated on Dancing With the Stars

by at . Comments

Last week's shocking elimination of Audrina Patridge on Dancing With the Stars certainly proved that anyone's fair game, but still, we didn't see this one coming.

Rick Fox is out the door now.

Despite earning personal-best scores this season and tying for the highest totals overall for his individual routine, the NBA star will be watching from the bench.

Cheryl and Rick are out the door somehow. Go figure.

Despite besting Kyle Massey, Kurt Warner and Bristol Palin, who doesn't even want to be there anymore, Rick apparently didn't do it for voters. Pretty shocking.

Too bad, because like Audrina, he's actually one of the better dancers this season. He's decent, works very hard, made strides and was genuinely fun to watch.

"It's been amazing. It's been a transformational journey for my relationship with my girlfriend and with my daughters," said Rick, who's now with Eliza Dushku.

Not sure we would have been so diplomatic.

How is Bristol Palin still around? Is there a conspiracy in play? Was it a GOP wave that swept Democrats out of the House this election night? A backlash among Laker fans after Fox showed up in his Celtic-green giant outfit (he played for both)?

We may never know.

We'll miss you, Jolly Green Giant.

All we do know is that scores and performances evidently mean nothing, otherwise Bristol the Pistol would likely be on a plane to Wasilla right about now.

She probably wishes she were, that's the irony. Maybe this is reverse psychological punishment for her half-assed efforts of late. You're STAYING!

We're kidding, mostly. But you do have to wonder what viewers are thinking with these past two eliminations. They both should still be here with us. Alas.

Who are you rooting for with Rick gone?


I do not own a crystal ball,but I will say it **again,
BP has been hanging around for the **scandal effect. What in the world??
There is no way,that this whinning,don't want to be there,stop in the middle of a dance,Miss Piggy can still be there outlasting seasoned performers. I did notice that Mama Bear did a promo last night. With the fan base that Cheryl has established, and the fan base behind Rick,we as the audienced are being cheated. The show is called DWTS,there is no way that Miss Piggy have the kind of call-in fan base to outlast dancers who are much better dancers,
and performers.There is No way!!
BP is being kept on this show for the scandal effect.Trust Me!!


This is a great show, but your voting procedure has got to go. Bristol Palin is not a good dancer and should be voted off. This should be about talent and improvement, not popularity or robo voting. You are losing your audience. Time to change before it happens.


at least Audrina tried and looked amazing on the dance floor. Bristol is a total embarrassment to your country


Rick and Audriana should not have been voted off before Bristol and Kurt! Time for a change in voting procedure?


I think the only people voting for Bristol Palin is her mother and her cronies. She STINKS! How could they leave her on and vote off Audrina and Rick. I think it is a fix. Not satisfied with the show and think it will lose a lot of ratings this way.
Don't even want to watch it anymore! It is a popularity contest, not a dance contest. ABC should be ashamed of themselves.


I am totally disgusted with the results of this weeks show. I was really horrified when Audrina was sent home last week, but with Rick Fox being sent home this week, I have had enough. Bristol Palin, although she has improved, should have been sent home weeks ago. I won't be watching again, even for the finals. This has been one of my favorite shows since Dancing started but this season has really turned me off.


I am done with your program. It is not about who improves in their dancing abilities, it is about robo texting. As this country's politics are corrupt, so is your show. Reality is only a word that means nothing when it comes to your show. This season will kill this program, Thank God.


I cannot believe Rick Fox was voted off.....Maybe Bristol Palin will win!


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
