WARNING: DANCING WITH THE STARS 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD!
Please be aware that this post contains Dancing With the Stars spoilers for week 6. Please stop here if you don’t want to know what happened in the DWTS 2012 elimination results for Tuesday!
The eight remaining Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast celebrities will find out on Tuesday night who will be facing elimination this week. Who ends up in the bottom from DWTS 2012 week 6 will depend on a combination of the judges scores and the votes of the viewers. Those ranked last will battle it out in a dance-off for the judges to determine who will go home in the Dancing With the Stars elimination results this week.
Going into Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars 2012 elimination results show, the difference between the top and the bottom of the DWTS 2012 leaderboard scores is currently a very wide margin of over 40 points. From the Dancing With the Stars scores from the judges so far, it seems fairly obvious who should be safe and who is in danger of going home, but the voters have previously shown this season several times that they don’t always agree with what the judges think.
Who was the unfortunate celebrity victim from the Dancing With the Stars 2012 elimination results on Tuesday night? Well, you might just be rather surprised at who got sent home! My prediction for who would be the target of the Dancing With the Stars elimination this week was certainly all wrong.
This week on Dancing With the Stars 14, five couples were tied for last place going into the elimination results. Jack Wagner and Anna Trebunskaya; Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus; Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy; and Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff all scored 24 points out of 30 with their routines from Monday night’s ‘personal story’ performances.
Who was the first celebrity to be eliminated from Dancing With the Stars 2012? Well, there were four celebrities this week with pretty abysmal scores: Gavin DeGraw, Melissa Gilbert, Gladys Knight and Martina Navratilova. So who got the boot? Read on to find out and see what they said about being the first to be eliminated!
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
If you haven’t watched the first Dancing With the Stars 2012 elimination yet, stop here! We don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t had a chance to cozy up with your DVR yet.
Being eliminated from Dancing With the Stars this week was a shock to reality TV star Kristin Cavallari. Pro dancer Mark Ballas and partner Kristin Cavallari were voted Dancing With the Stars season 13Â off on Tuesday.
“I’m a little surprised, to be honest,” Kristin Cavallari told reporters after her elimination. “But I’ve had such a great time and it’s been an awesome experience. So, you know, it is what it is.”
Cavallari said she really didn’t understand exactly why she and partner Mark Ballas got the boot from Dancing With the Stars this week. “I don’t know,” she said. “Maybe it’s like what Tom [Bergeron] said. Everybody thought we’d be safe, so they voted for other people? Maybe the audience didn’t like our dances after all. I’m not sure.”
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas finished in a fourth-place tie with the judges on Monday night. The couples had been asked to tell the stories of the most memorable year of their life through dance. Cavallari danced a samba to celebrate graduating from high school in 2005 and moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. After combining the scores from the judges with the audience votes, Ballas and Cavallari were eliminated.
Mark Ballas said he was thrilled to have been paired with Kristin Cavallari on Dancing With the Stars 2011 season 13, despite their early elimination. “I just want to say that I’m really proud of Kristin,” Ballas said. “She had great potential and I thougth she killed it last night and I was honored to be her partner, and I’m really proud of you and I love you.”
Despite being sad over her elimination, Kristin Cavallari said she truly enjoyed her time on Dancing With the Stars. “I’ve had such an incredible experience,” she said. “I’ve made new friends. We’ve all become such a little family. I’m a huge fan of the show. I’ll continue to be a huge fan of the show.”
As for who Cavallari thinks will make it to the finals, the reality TV star has her eyes on J. R. Martinez and Ricki Lake. “I think they’ll definitely be in the finals,” she said.
The Dancing With the Stars results from last night’s first elimination of the season were not at all surprising — not even to the eliminated celebrity. From the moment that Ron Artest (aka Metta World Peace) stepped on to the dance floor, you just knew it was not going to be good.
NBA player Ron Artest and partner Peta Murgatroyd just were not meant to make it past the first week on Dancing With the Stars. Oh, Peta was great and the consumate professional. Ron Artest, however, was like a log with wooden legs. He might ‘dance’ on the basketball court, but in the ballroom he is a dud.
The dancing pair’s cha cha routine scored only a lowly 14 points out of a potential 30 in the Dancing With the Stars results from the judges. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said the routine “was sexy, but wrong for all the technical reasons.” Rob Kardashian and Nancy Grace joined Ron Artest in the bottom three.
Artest, who oficially changed his name to Metta World Peace recently, was the first to admit he “didn’t really put in enough time and effor to go on” in the competition.
â€œIâ€™m a clown. I think I was maybe having too much fun. But, you know, somebody had to go early and first. Somebody had to go,â€ he told Access Hollywood. â€œBut I had a blast. The cast is great, all the dancers. I met new people, new personalities. I got a chance to experience a new thing.â€
As for his winner prediction, Metta World Peace was ‘amazed’ by former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Carson Kressley. “I was happy to see Chaz [Bono] — Chaz did pretty good. He didn’t mess up. And then Nancy [Grace] did awesome, but Carson — he’s the total package.”
Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani finally got sacked on Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars elimination. We’re just shocked they managed to stick around this long. There have been some really terrible contestants on DWTS, but in our opinion, Kate Gosselin is just about the worst dancer we’ve ever had the displeasure to watch. So we were not, in any way, sad to see her go. She, on the other hand, was downright devestated – or at least faked it really well.
“Well, you know, it is what it is,” Kate Gosselin told Dancing With the StarsÂ co-host Brooke Burke after landing in the bottom two this week with Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood. (And what was that about voters?) When she learned she had been voted off, Kate Gosselin lost her shit and couldn’t even speak. It was actually the most emotion she’s shown on her face throughout the whole competition, which was a huge part of her problem.
“I’m very proud of Kate, because I know she gets a lot of criticism out there and it is difficult — especially knowing my wife is watching with three kids — [Kate] has eight kids, and she’s a single mom, so I give her all the credit in the world for showing up,” Tony Dovolani said.
After choking down most her tears, Gosselin said she was thankful for the opportunity given to her by DWTS. “I’m very, very honored to have been here. I love everyone that I met. It was a great experience, and I’m sorry I’m crying. I’m a crybaby!”
Yes, Kate, we kind of knew that already. Now go home and spend some real quality time with your kids before your next damn TV gig leaves them at home for endless hours in the hands of your expensive nannies while you jet off to god knows where.
