The ‘Jolly Green Giant’ received the axe on last night’s Dancing With The Stars results show.
Despite receiving his highest score this week for his Quickstep, 41-year-old former NBA player Rick Fox still found himself on the chopping block, making it the second week in a row the lowest scoring star was not eliminated on DWTS.
“It’s been a transformational journey for me,” Rick said following his elimination. “It’s been amazing. My relationship has transformed with my girlfriend, my daughter – it’s the most enjoyable time having her here and sharing this with me.” Rick’s actress girlfriend Eliza Dushku sat in the audience with his daughter.
Rick also had some nice words to say about his partner Cheryl Burke. “What I’ll take out of this competition,” he said, “is a friendship with Cheryl and, hopefully, 15 to 20 new dance moves.”
On next week’s episode of DWTS, the show will be doing something its never done before. Maksim Chmerkovskiy tells E! News, ” They’re going to give us the dance after the show tonight but they won’t give us the music. So we’re going to have to prepare a dance without the music and get the music next Monday [during the show] and…we’ll have 20 minutes to prepare our dance.”
Maksim, who feels that the new change is really unfair, also adds, “I’m not really sure if I think it’ll make for great TV. I just think it’s absolutely unnecessary pressure on celebrities that are already under pressure. “
