Despite ruptured tendon, Cristià¡n de la Fuente will continue on Dancing with the Stars

I think the EMT that works on the set of Dancing with the Stars might need a refresher course. Despite the fact that he diagnosed Cristià¡n de la Fuente with a “severe cramp” last night, Cristià¡n actually ruptured a tendon in his arm!

Cristià¡n’s doctor told him that he needs surgery to correct the injury, but told him that he can continue with the competition and get the surgery after his time on Dancing with the Stars concludes.

That will be at least one more week, as the voters put Cristià¡n and partner Cheryl Burke through to the next round. I am guessing it was a great deal of sympathy votes, given his extremely low judge scores.
