Jake Pavelka Bumped Off “DWTS”

“The Bachelor” star Jake Pavelka and professional partner Chelsie Hightower have become the latest pair to get the boot on “Dancing with the Stars” after they received the lowest votes on Tuesday’s elimination night. Pavelka and Hightower’s samba performance on Monday received the lowest score from the judges and the voters saw the same thing.

Pavelka thus joins celebrity contestants Kate Gosselin, Buzz Aldrin, Shannen Doherty, and Aiden Turner on the sidelines. The six remaining celebrity dancers are Pamela Anderson, Erin Andrews, Nicole Scherzinger, Niecy Nash, Evan Lysacek, and Chad Ochocinco.

Pavelka, who appeared in the latest edition of “The Bachelor,” said he was “honored” to be a part of this season’s “Dancing,” which, according to him, is “the best season I’ve ever seen.” Pavelka also revealed that appearing on “Dancing with the Stars” was more than what he expected. “This is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be.”
