Season 14 of Dancing with the Stars could only take three celebrity contestants to the finals, which meant bad news for Extra host Maria Menounos. Despite earning a perfect score on Monday night's episode, Menounos and partner Derek Hough were eliminated Tuesday.

When it was announced that Menounos would be going home, the studio audience booed in protest, but Menounos stayed positive. “I learned so many things,” she said. “I learned how strong I was, I learned to persevere."

Menounous was joined in the bottom two by NFL super bowl winner Donald Driver and dance partner Peta Murgatroyd, who will join Latin soap star William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke and classical music singer Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas in the finals next week.
