ABC’s hit reality TV series Dancing with the Stars suffered its first casualty tonight. The elimination process involves a little bit more math than most reality TV shows. The judges’ scores from both last week and this week are combined to arrive at one total. The judges’ total is then combined with the viewer phone and Internet vote to arrive at a final total. The contestant with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes is the couple that gets eliminated.
Based solely on the judges’ scores, Kelly & Alec would have been eliminated. However, the audience vote evidently disagreed with the judges’ scores. When the judges’ scores were combined with the audience vote, Trista & Louis wound up having the lowest total and were eliminated from the competition.
