With a season filled with surprises, we can't say we're too stunned by the final three celebrities left on "Dancing With the Stars."
On Monday night, "DWTS" got down to business and axed another competitor as the series heads into its winners' stretch. The guy to go?
It was Bill Engvall. He and his partner, Emma Slater, went out with an unimproved Viennese waltz and an "Indiana Jones"-inspired freestyle routine during last night's episode.
While other competitors have shed tears after their elimination, Engvall saw a silver lining.
"It just goes to prove to me there is a God, because I don't think I could make one more dance," he said. "[Emma Slater] is like my second daughter now. We just had a blast."
And to top it off, he's leaving "DWTS" lighter on his feet. According to Us Weekly, Engvall shed 25 pounds over the course of season 17. Viewers got to see just how far he's come on Monday, as he took off his shirt during his freestyle.
"If I hadn't lost the weight I wouldn't have done it!" Engvall told press. "But I was watching the video and I said something like, 'If this is my last dance, you'll know Bill Engvall was here.'"
Now that he's gone, that leaves Corbin Bleu, Amber Riley and Jack Osbourne as the final three. Who do you think is going to be the ultimate winner of the Mirror Ball trophy?
