With the second 2012 presidential debate taking up most of the primetime TV schedule on Tuesday, Oct. 16, the “Dancing With the Stars All Stars” results show was shaved down to one hour. Which returning celebrity went home in the “DWTS” single elimination hour?
The bottom three couples didn’t come as a surprise. Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas joined Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff were the three teams in jeopardy of leaving.
Ohno and Smirnoff were sent to safety first, leaving Alley and Palin standing on the dance floor. Ultimately, it was Palin who had to go home, ending her reign on the series. This was a much worse showing than her first time in the competition, where despite her so-so dancing skills she finished third. This time, she goes home in Week 4.
“I had an awesome time and an awesome partner,” said Pailin before wishing the rest of the dancers good luck.
Did the right person go home? Should Palin have lasted longer in the competition this time around?
