Magician Penn Jillette and tennis champ Monica Seles were booted off “Dancing With the Stars” on Tuesday night’s double elimination episode.
And in a new twist, their dancing shoes were ceremonially burned in a flaming trash can during their guest appearance later that evening on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Jillette, touted as the biggest (in terms of height and weight) star ever to compete on “Dancing,” got kudos from the judges for being entertaining, but was criticized for his clumsy footwork.
Seles, a newcomer to dancing, never seemed comfortable on the ballroom floor. Still, she said she enjoyed the experience because she never got to go to prom and this made up for it.
With Jillette and Seles gone, that means radio host/comedian Adam Carolla, another low-scoring celebrity, is safe for another week. Detroit Free Press
