Holly Madison and Steve Wozniak avoided the dreaded dance-off in Tuesday's "Dancing with the Stars" results show, but the celebrity dancers couldn't avoid elimination.
Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple computer, failed to impress the judges with his performances on ABC's show. Monday, when dancing the tango with partner Karina Smirnoff, Wozniak earned the lowest score of the night.
Girl Next Door Holly Madison also received low scores for her tango with dance partner Dmitry Chaplin. Comedic actor Steve-O and his partner Lacey Schwimmer's Lindy Hop had the third lowest score, but Steve-O will stay to dance another day.
To determine Tuesday's bottom three dancers, judges' scores from Monday's performances were calculated with viewers' votes cast after that show. Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli gave Holly a score of 16; Steve Wozniak earned a score of 12; and Steve-O received a score of 15 after Monday's dances.
Upon being eliminated, Holly Madison showed her bruised legs and gave her final thoughts on being on the show. It was "a lot physically harder than I thought it was gonna be... I still love the costumes. It's my favorite part."
"You wore them well," host Tom Bergeron remarked. Judge Len Goodman who previously called the former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner "hot on top, wooden on the bottom," would likely agree.
Steve Wozniak didn't seem too disappointed to be going home."This is a great show, a great process, a great system, a great voting system, even, and the right thing happens." What will he miss? Dancing with Karina. "Forever man, I want to dance more with you," he said. Did the right thing happen tonight? Was he ready to go home? America was clearly ready to say goodbye.
How does Steve-O feel about the competition so far? "I feel like a complete champion." Steve-O said. About his dancing? Well, not quite. He's proud that he hasn't resorted to using drugs or alcohol during the high-pressure show and rehearsals.
