'DWTS' Spoiler! Another Favorite is Sent Home
As the audience booed, "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Chaz Bono got the boot.
Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer danced a haunting Tango to the music from "The Phantom of the Opera" on Monday. The judges all believed Chaz needed to step up his game to stay in it, giving the dancing duo the lowest scores of the night.
Watch the performance!
When he received the news, Bono said, "This was an amazing journey... I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man. If there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different."
Chaz and World Cup soccer star Hope Solo were both in jeopardy after Monday's show. Solo's partner, Maks Chmerkovskiy, engaged in a heated exchange with Len Goodman after the judge criticized Solo. At one point, Maks grumbled, "With all due respect, this is my show. I helped make it what it is."
On Tuesday's results show, host Brooke Charvet asked Chmerkovskiy if the judges weren't entitled to their opinions.
"Of course. So are we," he answered, but added that he wanted to apologize if the comment he made about the show being his was in some way misinterpreted. "It's not my show. I'm part of a very large cast," he said, adding that he was proud to be among them.
