Dancing with the Stars 6: Week 8 Loser

Dancing with the Stars, Mario, Karina Smirnoff

Yesterday’s edition of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6 turned out to be another jaw-dropping event:

  • Kristi’s Samba earned the skater another 26.  (Her first was last week.)  That’s her lowest score to date.
  • Jason Taylor racked up a 23 for his interpretation of the Samba.  He hasn’t seen that number since Week 3.
  • Cristián accumulated three 10’s and finished with his best total ever.  More importantly, the injured actor somehow managed to beat both Jason and Kristi!

In the end, it was the 21-year-old singer who was sent home today.  Although he placed third last night and was ranked third overall, Mario never really had the fan support his fellow competitors did.  (He also had fully functioning limbs.) 

Thankfully, his sourpuss of a partner didn’t cause too much of a scene after their official elimination tonight.  (That’s if you disregard the constant eye-rolling preceding the announcement.)

You can watch Mario’s final Viennese Waltz below:
