“Dancing with the Stars” co-host Tom Bergeron predicted fans could see the most shocking elimination of this season - and he was right.
After “Bachelor” alumna Melissa Rycroft skipped Monday’s competition due to a rib injury and rodeo star Ty Murray received some mixed comments from the judges, it seemed one of them would be booted from the competition last night.
But Murray was proclaimed safe early during the results show, prompting tense moments for the rest of the celebrity dancers and their professional partners.
The last two couples standing were a tearful Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani, and country singer Chuck Wicks and his partner Julianne Hough.
And surprise, it was Wicks who won’t be returning to the competition!
Wicks and Hough, who are a real-life couple, have been getting great comments from the judges lately, but apparently "Dancing" fans felt otherwise.
Meanwhile, Rycroft said she hopes treatment will keep her going in the competition despite her injury and added that it broke her heart to miss Monday’s show.
Do you think the right couple went home?
