Dancing With the Stars Results: The End of Chaz Bono?

by at . Comments

After a tense week on Dancing With the Stars that saw Maksim Chmerkovskiy call out Len Goodman and raise new questions of favoritism, who got the chop Tuesday?

With J.R. Martinez and Ricki Lake sitting pretty at 29 points, the other five dancers were pretty much all in jeopardy heading into the dreaded DWTS results show.

Last night saw Maksim Chmerkovskiy man up and apologize for his comments Monday, but would that be enough to save his partner Hope Solo from elimination?

Was last night the end of the line for Hope, Chaz or Nancy?

Of the top seven celebrities remaining, J.R., Ricki, David Arquette and Rob Kardashian were safe, with one of the three couples now watching from the sidelines.

Chaz Bono had the lowest score of the week, with Hope not far behind. Did one of them get the heave-ho, or did the slowly-improving Nancy Grace fall from it?

Follow the jump to find out ...

Chaz Bono, despite a very strong run this fall, has been sent home.

"I took so much away from this," he said. "This was an amazing journey that really pushed me and showed me I could do so much more than I ever thought I could."

"I came on this show," he continued, "because I wanted to show America a different kind of man. And I know that if there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different."

"So I dedicate everything I did to the people out there like me, the kids and teens who are struggling. You can have a wonderful, great life and be successful and happy."

"You get all 10s for that, my friend," said classy host Tom Bergeron.

So after all the controversy, Chaz Bono went out on top, although prior to the results show, he had some criticism of his own for the judges the night before.

"We were upset, not with the scores but with the comments toward me personally," Chaz said of Bruno Tonioli's likening him to a cute, fluffy penguin.

"We thought we did a good job. The judges always have a favorite or two," partner Lacey Schwimmer added. "We are just not that couple this season."

"For Middle America who knows nothing about ballroom dancing," she explained, "they think [the judges] know everything about ballroom dancing. And when they make comments like that, it does influence how people will vote."

Do you agree? Are the judges biased? Comment and vote below ...

Did Chaz Bono deserve to be voted off Dancing With the Stars?


Thank goodness Chaz got voted off. About time! This is a dancing show folks and he/she could hardly swing her fat belly and behind around the floor. Poor Lacey she certainly is a professional. I think Chaz is pathetic and feel sorry for he/she but I want to see people on the show that have the ability to improve every week. The judges can be funny but Chaz is sooooo sensitive right? Come on everyone why did we have to suffer thru this every week when his/her own mother only showed up once! I still love the show the professionals are terrific and the Tom is great. Also, the judges are a good mix and people need to lighten up or don't go on the show!


There is no reason for anybody to say hurtful things or hurtful names to someone. especially when they are out there in front of so many on TV as it is. it takes courage to do this and they should be commended for it. I could not do it and am really proud to watch those who do. I am prouder still of those that get insulted and called names and hold their composure and their voice. There is no reason for name calling comment on their dance what they did wrong and what they did right. help them to learn and do better. I am getting really tired of Bruno and his rudeness and they learing he does to the young girls. he knows dance and should know better than that.

I found it very interesting that Chastity's complaint (in so many words) was that had she been an overweight woman, people would have embraced her being on the show and taking off weight. --She is a woman. She has all the mannerisms of a woman. And that is what was being noticed in her dancing. She was a woman, dancing as a man; and no, it did not go over well at all. --She is a very sad woman, dressed as a man. And I will not be surprised if some day she retracts everything and blames all of her confusion on her mother and comes out with a book that is titled, "My Journey Back To Womanhood." I hope that they both figure things out and come to be saved in Jesus Christ, some day. I feel for both of them. ...Debra J.M. Smith - "Informing Christians" Journalist


I personally didn't like watching she/he dancing but he did it and now he is gone and that is the way it should be.


People have a right to their own opinons ph , so you are just as much a hater as the next person with the names you are trying to spell , Im glad that big he/she if off , didn't watch the show with it on it now maybe I will ..


Bruno owes Chaz a public apology. He was out of line and has been so many time over the 13 seasons. No person deserves to be riduculed in such a cruel manner. Time for him to go...or way past time. Tom Bergeron had ample time to cut to a commercial but no. Was it for ratings, Tom? Did you think it made for good TV? Bad call. Max talked about people that have just walked around and not gotten called out like this year. Remember Cloris Leachman?.....pitiful. But sure did get a laugh.......and they kept that poor excuse for entertainment on and on way past her time. Many other examples but the point is made. Let's go on or just quit watching. Chaz bashing needs to end right here.


Learn how to spell first RANK before you call people names yourself!! You are no better than the haters on this page...Go back to School


Urggg !!! This thing thinks he/she is a man is unbeliveable , it still has a vagina and that didn't even help with it's dancing , I just couldn't watch the show with that thing on, Nancy Grace, Hope Solo pleaseeeee these dancers I mean wanna b's sux ..take this show off the air already and bring back better programs , what a waste of 2 hours of your life !!!!!!!


Chaz shouldn't take offense to Bruno's comment about looking like a fluffy penguin. Had he been truthful he would have said that Chaz looked like a fat penguin. I don't mean that to be cruel be he is terribly overweight and very fortunate to have lasted this long on the show. Other much better dancers were unnecessarily voted off way too soon. The judges need to have more to say about who stays and who goes. I have to believe that losing the better dancers early in the competition has an effect on the ratings.


The comments were a bit rude . granted (but come on that one judge is always like that sure it was not personnel). but if judged only by his dancing and that is how it should have been.. - he should have been gone a lone time ago.. NO offense Chaz .. Besides after Monday nights dance he looked as though he was going to have a heart attack.. I was worried omg..
