It’s official Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer were booted from Dancing With The Stars last night on ABC. Chaz Bono failed to impress the judges and the audience with his tango to Phantom Of The Opera. Keep reading to find out what the other contestants have to say about Chaz Bono leaving DWTS!
It was an emotional week for Chaz Bono after he took harsh criticism from the judges on Monday night. On the results show last night fans were able to see Chaz Bono react backstage after the judges compared him to various animals. “I’ve been called an Ewok, a cute and cuddly bear, now tonight a penguin. It’s disrespectful to me.” His partner, Lacey, also found the judges critiques of Chaz Bono rude and unnecessary.
When Chaz was eliminated last night he didn’t seem to be too shocked by the announcement. Chaz told the hosts that he has had an amazing journey and that he accomplished his goal of coming on the show, which was to show America a different kind of man.
So what did the other contestants think about Chaz’s departure? Many stars took to Twitter to send messages to their new friend Chaz. Nancy Grace tweeted, “from the bottom of my heart, THNK U. I will miss you my dear friend.” And then there was Chynna Phillips who sent Chaz this message via Twitter, “incredible job on DWTS! You better be VERY proud! XOxoxo.” As for his dancing partner, Lacey wanted to thank all their fans and supporters. “Thank you all for the open minds and hearts for always supporting and being amazing human beings,” she tweeted.
