Double the elimination, double the pain.

With “Dancing With the Stars” results show pre-empted last week by the presidential election, the show had to cut two celebrities Tuesday night. And predicting who’s out is only getting tougher.

In this case, it was the man with the highest average score to date this season, actor Gilles Marini, and the woman who had the lowest average scores to date of the remaining dancers: Kirstie Alley.

If based purely on her technical skills, Alley would have been gone weeks ago. But her perky stage presence, chemistry with her popular dance partner Maks Chmerkovskiy and fan base helped her survive into the top 7.

Melissa Rycroft (”The Bachelorette”) pulled off a double perfect score night Monday with her quickstep and paso doble. The biggest judge’s discrepancy of the night was gymnast Shawn Johnson’s samba, which judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave a perfect 10 but Len Goodman marked a mere 7, a very low score at this stage in the competition because he felt it had too little samba content.

Of the remaining five dancers, Rycroft and Johnson have the highest average scores to date. The others (all former winners) – Apolo Anton Ohno, Emmitt Smith and Kelly Monaco – aren’t that far behind. Rycroft is the only remaining dancer who didn’t win the competition before, finishing third season 8.

For the semifinals next week, the theme is Michael Jackson.

Sad that Giles got voted off and Apolo is still on. Both are great dancers, but Giles is better, more versatile in his dance moves than Apolo. Not surprised Kirstie was voted off, although I did love that she gave everything she had and appears to be a very nice person.

It can’t be a joke if it’s the “votes” that keeps a person on and not the judges!!!!

Immensely HAPPY that the WHALE Kirstie is GONE – She should have been gone the first week. It would suit me fine NEVER to have to see that FAT WHALE again – Go jump off a cliff somewhere Kirstie!

People sure talk a lot of smack through a computer screen. Why you inviting such harm to that woman. A woman who in no way affects your life. WOW

She puts herself out there as a spry 66 or 62 year old woman doing her thing with gutso. Overweight and all, she’s not sitting back woe is me. I bet you too have something about you that’s not so pretty. Probably your mouth….IJS, why beat up on someone?

Didn’t mean she was overweight. Meant to say even if you think she’s overweight and all….

Not concerned.. you are ignorant. She is not even fat and wouldn’t doubt you are a disgruntal pig yourself. She is over 60 and looks better and more stamina probably than most 60 year olds. Go eat another twinkie.

I for one will not watch Dancing With The Stars any longer as clearly it is just a popularity vote with the public who should have little say in the matter and leave it to the judges. When the top scorers get eliminated, I guess it’s time to stop watching the nonsense.
