As much as we love watching Buzz Aldrin shake his replacement hip or Ochocinco mack on partner Cheryl Burke, in the end DWTS actually is a competition. Each week someone's gotta go home! Here's our rundown of the poor celeb that took their last Waltz (Samba or Salsa!) across the dance floor.
Losers: Shannen Doherty & Mark Ballas
DWTS started off its first Results Show with a shocking elimination. After watching the un-coordinated Kate Gosselin tip-toe her way through the Jive, we thought for sure she'd be going home. Shockingly Shannen Doherty and her partner Mark Ballas found themselves in the bottom two and booted out of the competish! Say it ain't so, Brenda!
The elimination was bittersweet. Her partner Mark Ballas busted his knee during Monday's dress rehearsal. Mark's injury would've left him off his dancing feet for six weeks and with his father Corky stepping in as Shan's substitute partner. Let's be honest, we're not sure how we would've muddled through the show without Mark's adorable mug!
Surprisingly, Shannen went home without a fight — or shanking Kate Gosselin!. Instead, the gracious actress left us with these parting words:
"I think that dancing isn't really my thing. You know, I'm an actor and it's what I love to do. I did this for my dad and I did exactly what I wanted. And I kind of think it's fate. My partner is hurt and he's out for six weeks. To be honest, I wouldn't want to go on without Mark."
