American Idol novelty act Sanjaya Malakar and the wife of ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, Patti, were eliminated on the next-to-last episode of NBC's summer reality show, I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! Tuesday night.

Both were gracious as they bid farewells to the remaining contestants (Lou Diamond Phillips, Torrie Wilson, John Salley).

"I'm a little disappointed, but you know what I made it to the Top 5," Malakar said. "There's one more day in the jungle and I'm ready to watch my fellow camp-mates battle it out."

Blagojevich wished the lone woman left on the show, ex-WWE diva Wilson, good luck in Wednesday's finale.

"I'll see you tomorrow," she said. "Knock 'em dead -- you kill these guys, you understand me?!"

The show's two-hour finale airs on NBC Wednesday at 8/7c.
