Dancing with the Stars Week 7: Shannon Elizabeth Eliminated

shannon-elizabeth-derek-hough.jpgAfter learning that Cristià¡n de la Fuente was announced as safe this week and revealed that he would continue on the show despite his ruptured tendon, I knew that Shannon Elizabeth and Marissa Jaret Winokur would be in the bottom two.

I was surprised to see it was Marissa who was saved by the voters and not Shannon, as Shannon and partner Derek Hough were eliminated from the competition.

What do you think turned off voters to Shannon and Derek? Their angry reaction to their scores last week? Their romance, which many have perceived was for publicity? Or do you think that they just fell victim to Cristià¡n de la Fuente pulling a lot sympathy votes?

It was probably a combination of all those factors and also just the fact that we are at the stage of the competition where everyone left has had great performances and there is no clear “loser” to be sent home.
