The season's second Dancing with the Stars results show dealt viewers somewhat of a surprise when it was revealed that Elisabetta Canalis was ousted.

George Clooney's ex isn't complaining or making excuses, though.

"Maybe dance isn't my thing. I'm not going to lie," the Italian actress told People backstage after being eliminated Tuesday night. "This show was challenging for me because I had to learn how to ballroom dance."

"I've never done it before. I hope to have learned something."

Canalis' partner Val Chmerkovskiy stood tall by his prótége.

"There are a challenges for everybody," he said, chalking the loss up to her unfamiliarity. "There were huge challenges for her. We're a proud nation."

"We're a welcoming nation, but [Americans] have our idols and our own fan base. This show is about people and fans. We can't compete with that."

"Yesterday, we did [well]," he said. "But unfortunately they gave our score to five other couples. That killed all of our chances [of staying on the show]."

At least she can go out knowing that her best routine was her last, even if she only did two. Here's what turned out to be her final performance:

Elisabetta Canalis bounced back strong on Dancing with the Stars. She quickstepped all the way from one of the worst scores last week to one of the best.

"The gears were grinding, the engine was hot and the pistols were pumping," Bruno Tonioli said, no doubt aroused by the Italian TV personality's routine.

Len Goodman admitted her dance was "not great," he acknowledged there was some real improvement - good enough for a seven (she scored 21 in all).

Watch the model's energetic routine below:

Chaz Bono posted the lowest score of the week (17) and Ricki Lake the best (23). Who do you think will be eliminated on this evening's DWTS results show?

The Kardashian sisters are as confused by this week's Dancing with the Stars results as we are by their fame.

After brother Rob Kardashian was ranked in the bottom three on Tuesday night - saved from elimination when fans voted off Metta Peace instead - the siblings took to Twitter and expressed their outrage.

"There is NO way Rob Kardashian was trending worldwide last night and in the bottom 3. Impossible!" Kourtney wrote. "HOW IS ELISABETTA SAFE?!??! HOW?! Seriously!!!"

Khloe Kardashian had the answer for her shocked sister, Tweeting: "Shows are rigged all the time."

Finally, Kim chimed in with an abuse of the English language: "Rob in the bottom three is impossible! He did soooo good!"

Allow THG three responses to these reactions:

  1. Kourtney, trending does not mean one is popular. Rob may have been trending because people were curious about the brother of the girl who got famous for having sex with Ray J on video.
  2. Khloe, the show might be rigged. Viewers also might dislike your talent-free family.
  3. Kim, unless you are referring to charity work Rob did during commercial breaks, one cannot do "good." One can only do "well."

Despite a past laden with naked photos, no one said much when Brooke Burke was cast on Dancing with the Stars.

But complaints have been pouring in from certain circles now that Chaz Bono, the transgender child of Cher and Sonny Bono, has been named a competitor on the new season of this ABC hit.

So far, both Bono's mother and Lacey Schwimmer have come to his defense. And we can now add George Clooney's ex to that list, as fellow cast member Elisabetta Canalis tells E! News of Chaz's inclusion:

"I'm so happy to be on this show with him. He represents a big community, so we need it on TV. We need to talk about it, we need to see people."

Do you agree? Where do you stand on the issue?

Chaz Bono's joining the Dancing With the Stars cast gave the show major publicity, but it wasn't just done as a stunt or a favor to the LGBT community.

Based on what we know of past seasons and those who have made long runs on the show, Chaz - if he can dance at all - could be among the favorites.

Below, THG breaks down the prospects for the man formerly known as Chastity Bono (with girlfriend Jennifer Ella, below) and the rest of the dancers ...

Chaz Bono and Jennifer Ella

Favorites: David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Ron Artest, Hope Solo, Ricki Lake

If anyone has the notoriety that they can utilize to gain interest and build fan support, it's Bono, who will be paired with a female professional dancer.

David Arquette is probably the show's second biggest "get," especially after his separation from wife Courteney Cox and subsequent bizarre behavior.

We don't know if either one can dance, admittedly. But assuming there's any kind of rhythm there, each could go on fairly sustained runs this fall.

George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis has joined the cast of the upcoming 13th season of Dancing With the Stars, according to E! News.

Officially, ABC does not comment on casting rumors prior to its official unveiling of the new cast, who will be announced on Bachelor Pad August 29.

However, insiders say the Italian model will be on board, unlike Snooki and Queen Latifah, who were said to be on board, only to deny the rumors.

DWTS could be about to get a lot more beautiful.

In June, George and Elisabetta Canalis called their two-year romance quits. Maybe he can be talked into sitting in at the judges' table this season?

Okay, definitely not.

Interestingly, Elisabetta would be following in the footsteps of Clooney's rumored new girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, who starred on Season 2 of DWTS.
