Actress Pamela Anderson and partner Damian Whitewood were eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars" during week seven's results show on Tuesday night. The couple received the lowest combined score of judges' points and viewers' votes.
"This has been one of the best experiences of my life, and that says a lot. I've had a lot of good experiences," Pamela Anderson said. About her "Dancing with the Stars" cast mates, she said "I've met a lot of friends."
"Dancing with the Stars" host Tom Bergeron said the show's producers had been trying to get Pamela on the show since episode one and they were "thrilled" that she finally accepted this season.
Pamela thanked her partner for her success on the show. "Damian is amazing... I just wanted to thank you very much," Pamela said.
Never miss a local story.
"You've been an amazing person to work with," Damian said.
The judges were sad to see Pamela go. "Heartbreaking to see," head judge Len Goodman said.
"A great performer. Somebody that brings life to every character she plays. Always different and always uniquely Pamela Anderson. That's a star quality," Bruno Tonioli said.
Sportscaster Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Nicole Scherzinger with partner Derek Hough, skater Evan Lysacek with partner Anna Trebunskaya, Niecy Nash with Louis Van Amstel and NFL star Chad Ochocinco with partner Cheryl Burke are safe and will continue to next week's competition.
When asked what would have to happen for her to win the coveted mirror ball trophy, actress Niecy Nash said: "A wardrobe malfunction."
Pamela Anderson suffered an injury during Tuesday's rehearsals and was not able to participate in the "repeat" dance of team Ga Ga's Cha Cha challenge.
Musical guest Train sang "Meet Virgina" and "Drops of Jupiter" during the result show.
