Even though Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus, the first Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars couple to be eliminated, were sent packing Tuesday night, the situation still isn’t sitting right with several of the duo’s fellow dancers and contestants.

But it’s not the former Baywatch star everyone feels sorry for … it’s her partner.

“Their elimination was basically all Pam’s fault,” an on-set source tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “She never wanted to rehearse. They got a later start than the other couples because Pam was literally dragging her feet. She didn’t want to do the work.”

“Tristan’s a great guy. Everyone loves him,” the source continues. “He shouldn’t have been eliminated this early on. He was ready to put in the time with Pam. Her heart just wasn’t in it.”

“It was especially rude when she admitted they deserved to go home first. Everyone was like, ‘You deserve to go home. Tristan doesn’t.’”

“It sucks but what can you do? Hopefully, next season he’ll be paired with someone who takes the show seriously.”

Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, October 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
