‘The Gutte’ Says Goodbye in Third Dancing Elimination
04/02/2008 AT 12:00 AM EDT
Even the Man-go couldn't save the Gutte.
On Tuesday night, after dancing a zesty tango with pro Jonathan Roberts, Steve Guttenberg became the third celebrity to exit the Dancing with the Stars ballroom in season six.
Though the judges had praised Guttenberg's more serious tango with Roberts's wife, pro Anna Trebunskaya, the night before, the Cocoon star -- who earned a decent-for-the-Gutte score of 21 -- couldn't hide from voters.
Still, he made a graceful exit, saying, "I've had such a good time here it's made me a better person."
Joining Guttenberg and Trebunskaya in the bottom ranks were Mario and Karina Smirnoff, while Monday night's lowest scoring couple, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony Dovolani, were deemed "safe."
Other highlights of the night:• Kylie Minogue's rare U.S. performance. The Aussie club favorite -- in a swingy blonde bob, red micromini and inches of heels -- indulged fans with her hit "Can't Get You Out of My Head." • Derek Hough's quick recovery. The pro, who was rushed to the hospital earlier in the day with a strained neck, stood by his partner Shannon Elizabeth's side throughout the night. • Kristi Yamaguchi's competitive hot dog eating career. (Did we mention it was April 1?)
Tell us: Are you sad to see the Gutte go? Was it his time? Did Mario and Karina's near-miss surprise you?
