Charlie White was eliminated on the Dancing with the Stars results show Monday night, but that's not why the Olympic ice dancing champion is upset.
Well, he is upset, as in disappointed. But he's not pleased with the way it went down, being pitted against longtime partner Meryl Davis in the waning moments.
While he said he wasn't rooting for Meryl to get the boot - "No, not at all!" Charlie insists - he's "not happy" with producers putting them in the bottom two.
"The thing is, you don't know if it's always the bottom two," he said. "Honestly to me, that felt contrived. I wasn't happy they pitted me against Meryl like that."
"I think our love triumphs over what makes for an interesting moment. I love that girl. We have been through 27 years and won an Olympic gold medal."
Aww. An early frontrunner to win the Mirror Ball trophy this spring, White admitted he was sad that he didn't make the top four and next week's finale.
"I'm disappointed because we had a few more special tricks up our sleeve for the finale and certainly getting this close, it's tough," Charlie lamented.
"I guess that's a lesson learned: don't save anything until the end."
Who do you think will win Dancing With the Stars Season 18?
