Dancing With the Stars 2013: Sean Lowe Is on Team Derek, Says Len Was Too “Harsh” — Exclusive

Bachelor star Sean Lowe may be Dancing With the Stars Season 16's latest eliminee, but that doesn't mean he's stopped having opinions about the show — including the big Len Goodman vs. Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler fight on Week 8, where Len bashed Kellie's trio Paso Doble and marked her all the way down to a seven.

Wetpaint Entertainment had a chance to catch up with Sean at the Beyond the Ballet fundraiser for Bright Future International in New York last night (May 8, 2013), a delightful event which he emceed. Of course, we had to ask about where he stands on the Derek vs. Len showdown.

"Oh, I'm totally on Derek's side," he responded as soon as we brought it up. Clearly, he had no doubt about it. "That dance was amazing."

"Len gave Kellie the same score that he gave me," he added. "Which ... I mean, come on! She is so far in front of me it's not even funny."

Sean acknowledged that Len had grounds for his critique, but he thinks the scoring was just way too low. "I think Len was a little harsh on that one," he explained. "He could have deducted one point and given them a nine, but not a seven."

We loved Sean's attitude about the whole thing, and we have to agree: light on "real" Paso steps or no, Kellie's dance deserved higher than a seven.
