It seems Chaz Bono's "cute little penguin" routine failed to impress fans this week!
After earning the lowest score -- 19 out of 30 -- for his tango to "Phantom of the Opera", Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer were sent home tonight.
Bono told reporters after his elimination:
- â€œI got to dig deeper into myself probably more than I ever have and overcome a lot of fear, pain, anxiety and stress. Itâ€™s made me a better person.â€
The transgender activist also confessed he had joined DWTS â€œto show America a different kind of man". He added, â€œIf there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different.â€
Supportive mamma Cher Tweeted after the results were announced: â€œI Have Got 2Hold my TEMPER ! MY Tears R OK ! Congratulations Chaz Iâ€™m SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Questâ€¦& u Followed your Star.â€
Are you sad to see Chaz go?
