It was a magical night on “Dancing with the Stars” as the remaining nine couples took on the fan favorite theme of “Disney” during Week 5 of the hit ABC series. But the night didn’t end happily ever after for everyone as one couple was sent home from Season 20 of the competition.
After a sexy jazz routine to the tune “He’s a Tramp” from the 1955 Disney animated movie “Lady and the Tramp,” Suzanne Somers and her partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated from the 2015 season. The duo impressed the judges with their final routine, which scored a 28 out of 40, despite a mishap in the middle of their performance.
“You should be very proud,” judge Carrie Anna Inaba noted. “You brought your A-game. So, your heel got stuck in your dress -- this was the mature and sexy Suzanne we were all waiting for.”
So, how did the “Three’s Company” star respond to getting cut midseason of the show’s 10th anniversary installment? Well, she told co-host Erin Andrews that she was proud of what she accomplished on the hip-shaking series. She also stated her appreciation for her partner. “He is a gentleman and gave me everything he had,” she gushed. “I so love [this man].”
And it looks like the feeling is mutual! On “Good Morning America” the following day, Tony shared the love he had for his partner in a touching segment. The professional dancer explained that it was an “uphill battle from the start” for the two as they strove each week to put their best feet forward in the 2015 season.
“They definitely didn’t judge us the right way,” Tony claimed, explaining that the judges are supposed to judge each contestant based on their skill level.
Although Tony didn’t see eye to eye with the judging process, he did agree with the judges on one thing: Week 5 was their best performance yet.
“You recovered beautifully,” he told Somers, who was feeling self-conscious over having tripped during their routine on Monday night.
