Poor Tristan MacManus! So much for the luck of the Irish.

The pro dancer was eliminated first on
Dancing With the Stars All-Stars, (no) thanks to Pamela Anderson, and he had to self-eliminate first from Season 16, due to his injured partner, Dorothy Hamill.

We had such high hopes for Dorothy, the graceful figure skater inspired by DWTS Season 6 winner Kristi Yamaguchi. And of course we can’t stand the idea of losing our beloved fake boyfriend, the Irish Lucky Charm himself. It’s not fair. They were so adorable together, their Week 1 dance was gorgeous, and he was so patient with her on Week 2. Poor Dorothy more than anyone, but it is frustrating for Tristan's fans to lose him so early, when he was powerless to save himself. 

DWTS/ABC, please be sure to make Tristan a regular part of the show every week. You know that fans saved him, so please find a way to get him on TV. Make him the fourth judge, have him interview people instead of Brooke, or just have him stand there next to Tom when the judges give their scores. It doesn't really matter. And yet it matters a great deal!

Are you distraught about Dorothy & Tristan? Relive their two dances below. Sigh. We'll always have that Contemporary...
