Ex-Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irwin and Iron Chef star Mark Dacascos were eliminated from the ninth season of Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday’s results show.
And unfortunately, since Mark was ousted, that meant that his partner Lacey Schwimmer –who’s also been blogging exclusively for RadarOnline.com — got booted, even though she was too ill with the flu to perform on Monday night.
Dacascos was bounced by the judges after receiving 19 points for his samba with a last-minute replacement partner Anna Trebunskaya, who filled in for Schwimmer.
Irwin, despite scoring a season-high 23 points for his Monday fox-trot with partner Anna Demidova, could not get enough viewers to vote for him.
“You always remember in life your first experiences,” Irvin, owner of three Super bowl rings, told RadarOnline.com‘s Tina Malave (with whom he shared his best chemistry since his playing days with Troy Aikman).
Dacascos had a stoic view of his final night on the ballroom floor, comparing it to a great party until “the host comes and asks you to leave.”
The remaining contestants on the show are Aaron Carter, Joanna Krupa, Kelly Osbourne, Mya and Donny Osmond.
Dancing With The Stars airs Monday at 8/7c and Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC.
