RECAP: 'Dancing With The Stars' Eliminates Kirstie Alley, Gilles Marini
In just two weeks, the mirrorball trophy will go to one of the remaining couples on this season of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars, which cut two celebrities in a double-elimination episode on Tuesday, due to being pre-empted last week by presidential election results.
Those who remain after the elimination — Kelly Monaco, Emmitt Smith, Shawn Johnson, Apolo Anton Ohno and Melissa Rycroft — will get a shot at the top prize, and if you can follow a simple process of elimination, you realize that means that Kirstie Alley and her partner-pal Maks Chmerkovskiy were voted off the show, as well as actor Gilles Marini and his professional better half, Peta Murgatroyd.
Alley's elimination was more than expected, as critics had already been saying that the former Cheers and Fat Actress star was still there on charisma alone, and not necessarily ability. All the same, Alley was gracious about her departure, which may or may not have come too late. "To be asked to come back, first of all, was an honor," she said, thanking Maks for being "so patient with me," and the judges, whose "critiques really helped."
Marini and Murgatroyd's elimination came as a little more of a shock, but the actor was just as effusive about his chance to return to the show. "In the end, it's just an incredible experience," he said, calling Murgatroyd his "angel."
See whose dancing turns heads — and potentially wins awards — next Monday night at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
