“I’ve been a fan of Margaret’s stand-up for years and to see it every night, what a treat it was,” Van Amstel said.

Cho’s last dance Monday was a tribute to gay pride after a recent spike of gay teen suicides, such as Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers freshman who killed himself after classmates outed him.

“We wanted to tell a story that was really about pride,” Cho said of her dance, in which she donned a memorable rainbow-colored outfit. “We wanted to impart that message of pride to all kids out there … its all about pride and I’m so proud of our dance — I’m so proud of what we got to do.”

Van Amstel added, “We wanted to show with the rainbow flag that we’re all living on this planet together and let’s appreciate each other’s differences.”

As for which one of her colleagues she’ll be rooting on as the show progresses, Cho said she’s rooting for everyone.

“I can’t wait to see the dances,” she said. “Its a phenomenal, phenomenal, phenomenal cast.”

Dancing With The Stars‘ eleventh season continues on ABC next Monday at 8/7c.
