Dancing With the Results: Wait, What?!

by at . Comments

After Monday's Dancing With the Stars performances, which saw Maria Menounos and Derek Hough receive the first perfect 30 of the year, it seemed all but certain that Melissa Gilbert and an injured Maksim Chmerkovskiy would be in the bottom two.

Their 21-point tango left them in last place, a full three points behind Jaleel White and Kym Johnson and four behind Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

Which two pairs were in the bottom two, and who was safe on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show? More than a few people were surprised.

Melissa and Maks were declared safe, leaving young Roshon and Chelsie to go up against fan favorites Jaleel and Kym in the dance duel for their lives.

After the two performed dueling rumbas, the judges made their decision.

"This is not easy. Side by side you guys are pretty much equal," said Carrie Ann, who chose Roshon and Chelsie to stay. Len and Bruno made it unanimous.

And just like that, Jaleel White's run on Dancing With the Stars ended.

"I really only thought I'd last about three dances this competition," White said after his elimination, "so to get this far – I've made incredible friends, the fans have just been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan ... I'm glad they saved him."

What do you think: Should Jaleel have gone home?
