Two former DANCING WITH THE STARS champions were eliminated on last night's 'All-Star' competition. The dreaded double elimination had viewers saying goodbye to Brazilian race car driver Hélio Castroneves and singer Drew Lachey.
Castroneves was the 2007 Mirror Ball Champion. Of his exit, he told ABC News after the show that he had “no regrets” about his “great” but short-lived time on the show this time around. “You got to know when to win and when to lose as well,” Castroneves said. “There are a lot of good competitors here.” Castroneves and his partner Chelsie Hightower danced the quickstep on Monday night's show.
Also eliminated, singer Drew Lachey and dance partner Anna Trebunskaya. Said a frustrated Trebunskaya, "We feel robbed." Lachey told reporters, "There are fantastic dancers on the show, everyone sees it, but do I think we're going home too early? Absolutely," Lachey said. "And I don't think anyone in the ballroom disagrees. I think Hélio is going home too early is well."
