Dancing with the Stars 6: Penn Jillette eliminated

penn-jillette.jpgMagician and comedic performer Penn Jillette was the first male contestant sent home in season 6 of Dancing with the Stars. He joked following his elimination that he was going to continue to rehearse all week and will peform next week in the parking lot outside the ballroom. He told Tom Bergeron that is was not a protest, but rather the “joy of the dance” that would keep him going.

Cristià¡n de la Fuente was the other dancer on the hot seat as the final two and I for a moment I thought he might be the one to go. He is not that well known in the United States so he may not be pulling as many popular votes.

The female contestant heading home will be announced later tonight.
