Chuck Liddell Knocked Out of Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

Chuck Liddell is used to putting up a tougher battle than this.

The Ultimate Fighting champion and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya, were knocked out of the Dancing with the Stars competition last night, despite having never actually finished last in the judges' scoring. But it's fans who make the final call.

"I had fun. We had a good time, made a run at it," Chuck said.

"It's hard to do, I made a shot at it."

Anna added: "I had so much fun working with you. You are a gentle giant. You are my bear and you are my hippo. You made me so proud each single week!"

All together now: Awwww.

Anna Trebunskaya and Chuck Liddell have danced their last.

Aaron Carter, whose loca lambada fell way short, edged out Chuck in the bottom two. Perhaps he needs to quit banging Karina Smirnoff and start practicing.

The judges' bottom-dwellers, Michael Irvin and Louie Vito, charmed their way to safety while a previously-mediocre Melissa Joan Hart and Mya led the pack.

The remaining 10 stars will dance twice next week, one group hustle and then either the paso doble or Argentine tango for their individual rug-cutting.

Also on the program last night? The announcement we were all waiting for on the edge of our seats: Jake Pavelka will be the next star of The Bachelor!


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
