Chaz Bono Eliminated Dancing With The Stars

After last night’s emotional episode, did YOU agree with which couple got the boot from ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Oct. 25?

It came down to the two most controversial couples for elimination on Dancing with the Stars Oct. 25: Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer. However, in the end, it was truly the judges’ scores that did the talking.

After hanging on by a thread for weeks, Chaz, the 42-year-old transgender advocate, was eliminated. “I took so much away from this. This was an amazing journey that really pushed me and really showed me I can do so much more than I realized,” he said after hearing the news.

He added, “I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man. If there was someone like me on TV when I was growing up, I would have had a much [better] life.”

Chaz and Lacey were consistently the lowest scoring team in the competition, but Chaz’s large fan base kept them afloat.

“Chaz bravely put on his dancing shoes and became a fan favorite, showing millions of viewers that he’s like any other guy,” GLAAD Acting President Mike Thompson said in a statement. “Though it’s sad to see him go, Chaz has helped countless people better understand what it means to be transgender. He should be commended for both his courage and determination. We hope Chaz’s time on Dancing with the Stars is just the beginning in a long line of transgender-inclusive programming across the media.”

Were YOU upset to see them get the boot or did you agree with the decision?

Chaz should have been eliminated after the first week or the second week at the most! In the first week, only Rob was a worse dancer & yet we have seen immense improvement over the weeks when it comes to Rob’s dancing & next to no improvement with Chaz.

It’s shocking that Chaz made it as far as he did at the expense of others who were very good dancers.

Chaz sounds pretty desperate when he whines about the penguin comment considering a man in tuxedo is often said to be wearing a penguin suit. Week after week, Chaz did little more than walk around as poor Lacey struggled to find ways to dance around him & make it look like a ‘dance.’ At most, over the weeks Chaz finally DID manage to lift his legs a little higher while he walked across the dance floor & it started to resemble something closer to a dance.

No wonder Max had a meltdown. Other contestants are being judged for their DANCING & Chaz had been judged on walking & he was so frustrated he had an immature (and nasty!) temper tantrum.

The other contestants were gracious towards Chaz & certainly didn’t voice their opinions about the unfairness that good dancers were given the boot while Chaz was continually saved by fans who were voting either for Cher OR because they wanted to support Chaz in an agenda that was totally unrelated to DANCING!

I like Chaz but I do NOT like the fact that he seems to forget this was a dancing competition & eventually he would be judged for DANCING ABILITY.

The next time he chooses to advance his agenda, I sincerely hope he’ll choose a venue where he will have the opportunity to SHINE & not one where he is destined to fail.

huh? i was sort of following you until the end, but then i didn’t get it. you said that non-dancers should be on the show, but then you said chaz shouldn’t be on b/c he has no dance ability? or was it b/c he had a side agenda? i mean, is his side agenda to help children who grew up feeling like he did, any less worthy than these other stars who are going on to promote their careers or their products? really? chaz didn’t shove anything down anyone’s throat. he came on the show to try to lose some weight, have some fun, and to show people that relate to him another option in their life. he had as much right to be in that competition as anyone else, and he graciously accepted his time to go.

oops. sorry. i think i had in my head that you had said somethings when it was a different post i had read just before yours. so, some of that not really responsive to your post. in any case, re the agenda stuff, i still feel that’s true- i don’t think anybody goes on that show without a side agenda that has nothing to do with dancing.

i c she looks more like a man but everyone knows she is a woman.im not tring 2 b hatefull but God the creator made her a female,nothing will ever change that.but im on the fence about the dancing compitition they r suppose to pick people that dont know hoe 2 dance and then try 2 make them dancers.i think alot of the time the stars do have some back ground in dancing.like linda grayalot of the singers have been coriagraphed in there videos.so people like nancy grace and chsz cardashians the other gay guy (sorry)i give them all the credit 4be coming thr dancers they never were and now r.i dont think riki lake should win cos i have seen her dance on tv so she has a one up on the others.Jr is a natural he should win.just because he is the one who has come the farthest.just my opinion.

i guess for me, i don’t see him as either- he’s just chaz. i love and admire her, regardless. i do have a hard time saying he though, after so many years of saying she. i have to edit every post i make about him to switch from he/she or him/her. i’d like to think he’d forgive me for that. :)
