Time finally ran out for Carson Kressley on last night's "Dancing With the Stars" results show.
The fashion guru, whose wild, personality-driven routines entertained fans but annoyed the show's judges for lack of technique, was the latest celebrity eliminated from the popular ABC series.
Kressley, who scored the lowest following Monday's routines, told CNN after the show that he was somewhat surprised by his departure.
"We've had such great support from the voters at home that we hoped that we would still be safe," he said, "but we didn't have a great dance and someone had to go home."
Despite the elimination, Kressley enjoyed the "Dancing With the Stars" experience.
"I've never had an experience like this where from the [first] moment everyone embraces you and says we're glad you're here. When we were voted off, everyone embraced us, literally."
Seven celebrities remain, including HLN's Nancy Grace, who's sad to see Kressley go.
"Carson and I have been friends since way back in New York," she said Tuesday. "I'm going to miss him terribly."
Next week, the dancers take on the music of Broadway.
What did you think of last night's "Dancing With the Stars" elimination?
