Jake Pavelka out of the ballroom

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

It was only a matter of time before Jake Pavelka's bad dancing caught up with him. On tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" results show, the moment arrived. The former "Bachelor" star landed in the bottom two and was shown the door after the judges' scoring and viewers votes were tallied. A very emotional Jake brown down into tears when asked what he would like to say in gratitude to his pro partner Chelsie Hightower. It's not the first time we've seen Jake cry when he had to explain his feelings to a woman; "The Bachelor" episodes were often peppered with his teary-eyed blathering.

On the sidelines, his fiancee Vienna was clearly in shock and sad. And yet she stayed strong for him, shedding not one tear on camera.

The best part of tonight's show was the sports science analysis of a ballroom dancer's moves. It was one of the most insightful segments the show has ever done, and it confirmed what most of us thought all along: those pros are powerful athletes. It was great television.

How powerful is TV when publicity whores shamelessly flaunt their body without brian are shown the doors after 15 minutes. If Jake had never done the bachelor and dwts, the public would have thought that was a nice guy. At the end of bachelor, the public thought what a stupid guy. When he is not kicked off from the dancing floor, I can hear the world cheering.
