Lolo Jones was the first celebrity to get the chop this season on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, and it's safe to say she's not taking it well.

The 32-year-old Olympic track star did the obvious thing immediately after being sent home, logging in to Facebook and unleashing an epic rant.

Jones, who has been widely hyped but has failed to deliver as an athlete on some of the biggest stages in her sport, was clearly stung by her DWTS exit.

Lolo's past failures to meet expectations were weighing on her. She writes:

"When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again."

"People are going to ridicule me. I'm so tired of feeling embarrassed."

When U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones' virginity became the subject of a recent story on HBO's Real Sports, she was instantly linked to NFL star Tim Tebow.

Not negatively, just because of the obvious.

Both are high-profile, good-looking athletes who are in the minority in saving themselves for marriage. They should date, right? A lot of people think so ...

Amazingly, when Tebow entered the New York Jets locker room last week, several of his fellow players immediately started chanting, "Lo-lo! Lo-lo!"

A dedicated Twitter user, Lolo Jones was among the many people who saw the New York Daily News' report on this and responded immediately:

Some memorable lyrics to that song:

"I've been alone with you / Inside my mind / And in my dreams I've kissed your lips / A thousand times / I sometimes see you / Pass outside my door."

"Hello! Is it me you're looking for?"

Right?! The 29-year-old Lolo Jones, who is of mixed-racial descent, then followed up with a second Tweet about her fellow athletic virgin:

Hmm. Well, there you go. If Tebow does in fact enjoy chocolate milk, perhaps a phone call after the summer Olympics is in order ...

She's got looks, class, brains and Olympic-level talent.

Lolo Jones still can't land a steady boyfriend, however.

Jones, whose real first name is Lori, has been looking online, but she admitted on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel that she hasn't had too much luck.

The biggest detriment, she says? Her virginity.

"It's something, a gift I want to give my husband," the 29-year-old hurdler says. "This journey has been hard. It's the hardest thing I've ever done."

"Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than studying for college has been staying a virgin before marriage. I've been tempted."

She says she's even considered its impact on her sport: "I've had guys tell me … 'Hey, you know, if you have sex, it'll help you run faster.'"

Lolo Jones didn't buy that suggestions, she says, despite how much she wants that gold medal. She then says, "If you marry me, then yeah."
