Not even Disney magic could save this couple from being eliminated. That’s right, fans of “Dancing With the Stars” were forced to say goodbye to yet another Foxtrotting twosome during Week 5’s anticipated theme “Disney Night.” But which pair was sent home from the Season 20 competition on an enchanted carpet ride? It was none other than “Three’s Company” star Suzanne Somers and her partner Tony Dovolani.
After getting eliminated, Suzanne admitted that she thought she had proved during her stint on the ABC series that women of 60 years and older could have what it takes to rock the ballroom floor. “And I think all women my age should go on hormones,” she added with a laugh.
Suzanne then made a point to thank Tony for standing -- or should we say dancing? -- by her side. “He is a gentleman and gave me everything he had,” she gushed to co-host Erin Andrews. “I so love [this man].”
Prior to getting sent home, Suzanne and Tony performed a jazz routine to a tune from the Disney animated movie “Lady and the Tramp.” However, during her sexy number, performed to the song “He’s a Tramp,” Suzanne noticeably fumbled after she tripped on the hem of her dress.
“It is a shame you messed up,” judge Julianne Hough said, adding that on a positive note, Suzanne brought the heat to her performance.
“You should very proud,” Carrie Ann Inaba chimed in. “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.”
Suzanne and Tony were rewarded with 7’s across the board, earning them a total of 28 out of 40. But unfortunately, that couldn’t save them from becoming the fourth couple eliminated from the 10-year anniversary installment.
