Dancing With the Stars Results Surprise: Who Got the (Undeserved) Chop?!

by at . Comments

With Chaz Bono in last place for the second consecutive week on Dancing With the Stars, and by a large margin no less, we thought his run on the show was over.

We thought wrong.

Chaz and Lacey Schwimmer ended up with the lowest score of the week Monday - 18 points - well behind the next lowest stars, Carson Kressley and Nancy Grace.

When the audience's votes were factored in along with the scores, the show's first transgendered contestant was spared. But what about those other two?

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas
Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya

Carson Kressley was in fact in the bottom three, but he was there along with the beautiful-but-boring Kristin Cavallari and Hope Solo, not Nancy Grace.

That's DWTS for you. Week after week, it's anyone's game. So who got the axe among these three competitors when the week's results were unveiled?

Follow the jump to find out ...

Kristin Cavallari, despite a solid score of 24 that tied for third place Monday, couldn't muster the votes to stay. Is America just not a fan of her or
The Hills?

"This is truly crazy," head judge Len Goodman said of the Dancing With the Stars results, which prompted some booing in the audience. "It's just madness."

"I'm a little surprised to be honest but I've had such a great time and it's been an awesome experience," said Kristin, who was cheered on by Jay Cutler.

"I was really proud of Kristin," her partner Mark Ballas said. "She had great potential and she absolutely killed it last night. I'm honored to be her partner."

Do you agree with Kristin's elimination? It is, after all, America's call. The scores do carry weight, but only partially. She didn't close the deal with voters.

Did Kristin Cavallari deserve to be voted off DWTS?


Sunshine 1, i'm just glad Chaz can do an arm extension..lol!! i haven't voted for him yet?? But if Nancy Grace keeps running her mouth..it's a thought!!


Berta, your sooo wrong..controversy seems to be what this show thrives on!! 1st Bristol Palin...now Chaz. Their one of the top rated shows this fall! The X factor started too soon or i may be joining them if we the public get to vote. When the competition actually starts!!


Actually, the judges score have some to do with it. But take it or leave it like when you vote for President, with it's faults..i'll take it. i love having some sayso..actually, the fact that Kristin Cavalleri is slamming DWTS is how Yahoo put it..now, it makes me glad she was voted off. Because truly, she was no star..at least not to the 30 up and bunch..i had to look her up to see who she even was!!

This show is, was, and always will be a popularity contest, nothing more. The voters determine who stays, who goes, and ultimately who wins. The judges scores and the talent of the dancers have nothing to do with it. That being said, even though Kristen didn't have the lowest score or the worst dance she isn't all that great. I thought she was rather stiff. But, that is my opinion. =)


The producers are to blame for this fiasco. They intentionally cast "controversial" people to boost ratings and buzz. But then when that tactic bites them in the results, they are horrified that identity politics trump talent.


Chaz needs to go, it is taking away the purpose of the show to see who can really dance, these dancers work hard to better themselves just to be elimnated this show is promoting an agenda, I hope the ratings go down so they can't get anymore sponsors. How do we know if the right people are getting the votes, the producers can fix this anyway they want. I didn't think this was a popularity contest, the rules need to be changed. I am thoroughly disgusted and will not watch anymore


Chaz can't dance..... I don't know what he is doing on the show... tries to walk thru the steps, hand and arm extentions are SLOW, has not sense of rythme.... It is a joke that he scored higher than a 2 or 3 by the onset judges.... Not fair to those that have talent.


These shows need to actually NOT be America's votes. It takes all legitimacy out of it...and turns it into a popularity contest.


Once more DWTS leaves me wondering about the legitimacy of its voting practices. Are the votes manipulated by behind the scenes individuals to suit their PR purposes ? It certainly seems that way! I don't blame Chaz for this fiasco. He has put himself out there for criticism from the beginning, and I admire his courage in doing so. He seems to have worked hard with his partner, Lacey, whom I also admire, but it is so obvious that he just simply doesn't have what it takes to be a dancer. Is DWTS so desperate to have celebrities in the audience that they are willing to stoop to this?


I am so disappointed with DWTS. I have watched from the very beginning but this could be my last. I want to watch to see the stars inprove each week but when you let the most improved dancers go and keep the ones that can't dance is a waste of my time. The judges keep making comments, like you are so entertaining to watch . This is a dance show not a comedy entertainment program. So now you announce that Cher will be in the audience next week, does that mean Chaz gets through another week and then maybe you can get her to sing on the show too.


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.
