Dancing With The Stars: Kurt Warner Proves To Be A Class Act As He Discusses Last Night’s Elimination
November 10, 2010 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ
Fans of Dancing With The Stars on ABC watched last night as Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya were eliminated just a week shy of the semi-finals. Despite the disappointment from the crowd and his fans, Kurt Warner discussed his eliminated after the show and proved to us once again that he is indeed a class act. Keep reading for all the details!
While last night may have been disappointing for NFL fans to watch on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, Kurt Warner has no regrets and in a post elimination interview, he proved why his fans love him so much. After jokingly saying how unfair it was that he was eliminated, Kurt then seriously told reporters â€œAgain, we know there are so many things that go into this. I get to this point and Iâ€™m just glad itâ€™s me and itâ€™s not one of these other guys. I donâ€™t want anybody to have to go home because everybodyâ€™s worked so hard. So the great thing for me is that I came on this show to have a great time and to have a great experience. Winning wasnâ€™t even a part of why I did this show. So, itâ€™s pretty easy for me to walk away with the great things I acquired on this show.â€
Being the class act that he is, Kurt Warner took no satisfaction in the fact that he outlasted fellow sportsman Rick Fox, who was eliminated last week as he goes on to say â€œThis isnâ€™t really about competition. This is about a bunch of people who chose to take on a challenge and are willing to accept whatever comes with that. Weâ€™re all proud of one another. Everyone is in the same boat. If we all started at the same level, if we were all really good at this, it would be a competition. But because we are all in the same boat and we donâ€™t know what weâ€™re doing, itâ€™s more about cheering for one another, building those relationships and enjoying watching other people do the same thing you are trying to do. It really isnâ€™t about who you beat or what place you get.â€
So who does Kurt Warner think will win the mirror ball trophy? He is split as he says â€If it comes down to dancing, Jennifer or Brandy. They were the ones who came in with the most experience, who have danced the most consistently. So they gotta be the front runners. But the great thing is, Kyle has a chance because he is a tremendous entertainer and a big part of this is entertainment.” And despite the fact that most of us thought Bristol should have been the one sent home last night, Kurt did not have a bad thing to say about her either as he continues “I love Bristol, I think sheâ€™s done tremendously well and Iâ€™m probably as proud of her as anybody who was on the cast.â€ We will definitely miss you Kurt next week, but there is no better way to go out than with class!
