Shannon Dances No More

It’s official. Shannon Elizabeth has been eliminated from the Dancing With the Stars competition on ABC.

The sometimes-poker player made a good showing with partner Derek, but the dancing duo was sent home in fifth place. Though she seemed to give 100% effort to the task, the judges were unimpressed with her lack of hip action and fluidity in the dances. And the audience may have been put off a bit by the couple’s emotional/angry reaction two weeks ago to the judges’ criticisms, something for which they apologized the following week.

Sad to see Shannon get so far and be eliminated. Sadder that I must now watch the remainder of the season to see who wins.

    She did a good job making the final table.

    It was unfortunate that the guy who injured himself got a heavy sympathy vote. I think that cost Shannon her spot.
    Anyway, with her out and the Mavericks out, Dan can get back to concentrating on his poker game.
