Audrina Patridge was voted off ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Tuesday night, a move that stunned Judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli. Audrina and dance partner Tony Dovolani awaited their fate alongside Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough, who were also in jeopardy.
“I’m almost lost for words,” said Len, moments before the announcement was made. “We like the underdog, but we like justice more, and there is no justice with these two being in jeopardy.”
Looking back on perfomances by Bristol Palin, Kurt Warner and Kyle Massey, it’s no wonder the judges are incredulous that Audrina and Jennifer, two of the best dancers, wound up in jeopardy.
“I can’t believe it,” Bruno said of Audrina. “She is great.” During the first show of the season, Bruno told Audrina, “You look like a beautiful show pony that needs to be whipped into shape and pushed to the limit, my darling.” Well, neither the judges nor the audience will see any thing more from Audrina because the viwers have spoken.
Like most eliminated dancers, Audrina left with grace, saying she wasn’t sure how she felt about leaving the show. “I don’t even know, I just know I’ve had so much fun,” she said. “Tony has been great. I tried to give it more character–I guess I couldn’t tap into that right now,” she said in reference to recent critque from the judges.
Early on during the night’s episode, we learned that Bristol, Kurt and Kyle were safe, and of course, we didn’t hear about Brandy and Maks until the show was dwindling down.
Now six couples are left, and I predict either Bristol, Kurt and Kyle will be voted off next week, which should have already happened.
