David Hasselhoff Booted Out of “Dancing with the Stars”

Voters kicked out David Hasselhoff and partner Kym Johnson from “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday, in what many observers considered an upset as The Hoff was considered popular among viewers.

Hasselhoff, who received 15 points for his Monday night performance said he enjoyed his brief “Dancing with the Stars” stint, which he described as “a great ride.” However, Hasselhoff also felt sad for his partner, who he said “worked hard to get me going.”

“Dancing” host Tom Bergeron said before he announced the name of the eliminated celebrity contestant that the voting result “surprised even our producers!” Margaret Cho, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, and Michael Bolton were predicted by viewers as the ones who would be fighting for survival. However, Cho and Bolton were called safe immediately.

The dance showdown will continue next week with Jennifer Grey, Florence Henderson, Brandy, Bristol Palin, Audrina Patridge, Kurt Warner, Rick Fox, Kyle Massey, Bolton, The Situation, and Cho trying to stay alive in their battle for the Mirror Ball trophy.
