Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus were voted off Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, but she left a lasting mark on the show, and her partner.

She said she came to inspire and enjoy the party. Done and done.

The Dancing With the Stars results matched the scores from the past two weeks. Valerie Harper was in last place both times. But she remains a winner.

The 74-year-old delivered a message of hope by savoring life after she was diagnosed with brain cancer and given three months to live earlier this year.

She reacted in characteristic fashion to her elimination last night. As the audience and her fellow dancers cheered and cried, Harper simply beamed.

After a fourth week of performances live on ABC, the Dancing With the Stars results are in for the third Monday night elimination of the 17th season.

So who's the odd man (or woman) out this time around?

Combining both scores from Monday's episode and public votes from last week, the Dancing With the Stars results show is harder to predict than ever.

With Bill Nye gone, Valerie Harper was on the block.

Six points shy of their nearest competitors last week, it would take a monumental effort from the Mary Tyler Moore Show actress to get back in this.

Was she able to do it? Or did another contestant surprisingly end up on the outs? Follow the jump for this week's Dancing With the Stars results ...

Dancing with the Stars' Brant Daugherty revealed that his recent triumph turned to terror as a man came at him with a gun after the results show.

"After the show I got dropped off and was walking up to my apartment when a man followed me up with a gun and told me to give him my stuff," he said.

"It was a complete random occurrence of events and it led up to one of the worst nights of my life - after having such a great night last week on the dance floor."

Brant, who was in the bottom three on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, was robbed at gunpoint after the previous week's broadcast.

Police say they haven't gotten a report like his in his "very safe neighborhood," which makes one wonder if Brant was specifically targeted in the attack.

There's a reason Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has not been in danger on either Dancing With the Stars results show this fall. The new mom has got the moves!

Thanks to an impressive one-handed cartwheel in tandem with partner Sasha Farber, Snook earned her highest score of the season last night. Watch:

The end of their Charleston to "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" routine was impressive, and earned them impressive 25 points out of 30 last night.

Can Snooki be a real contender to win the Mirror Ball? Are you surprised that the famed Jersey Shore club-goer can do a dance that doesn't involve Twerking?

Bill Nye the Science Guy was given the boot on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, but at least he went out in style with his final routine.

After ignoring doctors' orders to stay off his torn quadricep, the 57-year-old opted instead for a modified “jazz” routine to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”

It was ... awkward. And ridiculous, yet brave and sort of awesome.

Karina Smirnoff spoke of the “superb job” Bill's partner Tyne Stecklein did at crafting a story and dance around essentially a man with a peg leg.

It was pretty impressive, if you look at it from Tyne's end.

Despite Nye's best efforts at wooing the judges with his strange, hobbled sex-robot routine, the duo was the second to be voted off the show in Season 17.

After a third week of performances live on ABC, the Dancing With the Stars results are in for the second Monday night elimination of the 17th season.

So who's the odd man (or woman) out this time around?

Bill Nye on Dancing With the Stars

Combining both scores from this week's episode and public votes from last week, the Dancing With the Stars results show is harder to predict than ever.

Heading into tonight, the Bills (Nye and Engvall) brought with them the lowest scores, and seemingly the poorest prospects for advancing to next week.

The Science Guy was also nursing some torn ligaments, further dimming his prospects. Did either of them surprise us? Let's get to the DWTS results ...

After suffering a torn ligament from falling mid-routine on Monday's episode, Bill Nye the Science Guy is down but not out on Dancing With the Stars.

The 57-year-old is "in good spirits and is really hoping he can continue to compete."

Nye, a fan favorite on the ABC show, "stepped on the cuff of these fancy slacks and I went down," he said following his nasty tumble earlier this week.

"We'll do R.I.C.E. - just rest, ice, compression, elevation [and] see where we get."

The injury sent him to the hospital after the Dancing With the Stars results show.

Julianne Hough will be back on Dancing With the Stars, the show that made her a star in her own right, if only for a guest stint on the judges' panel.

The 25-year-old will guest judge at least one Dancing With the Stars episode this season while head judge Len Goodman is away on other business.

Len will be judging the British series Strictly Come Dancing, so the former DWTS pro and Footloose actress will fill in while he's absent on ABC.

“She’s just as, if not more knowledgeable than what’s going on over there,” said Mark Ballas, Hough’s former partner, gesturing over at the judges’ table.

“She’ll be honest, whether you’re family, a friend, or whatever to her."

Leah Remini said the Church of Scientology is hoping for her to fall flat on Dancing With the Stars after her public defection from the religion this summer.

“The church is looking for me to fail so they can say to parishioners, ‘Look what happens when you leave,’” she told partner Tony Dovolani in a taped segment.

“They’re waiting for me to fail.”

At least through the first Dancing With the Stars results show of the season, the actress had the last laugh, easily coasting into the third episode.

Leah, who called her exodus a “big change for me and my family,” said that with Scientology, “You’re used to taking a lot of negativity on yourself.”

Combining both scores from the Season 17 premiere and public votes from last week, the first Dancing With the Stars results show of the fall was a wild one.

First, the couples all danced routines that ranged from top tier (23-26 points, seven couples) to lower tier (17-20 points, five couples), with the stakes high.
