Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan may have been the celebrity voted off Dancing with the Stars last night, but it's one of her chief competitors who's growling about her elimination.
“I'm going to be the a**hole and say that there were couples, celebrities, that should've been eliminated tonight,” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who's partnered with Spice Girl Melanie Brown, told Extra after both Bryan and soap star Cameron Mathison were singled out for elimination. “The two in the bottom two were not.”
When the final tally of votes came in, Bryan and partner Mark Ballas were sent packing in what was deemed the biggest upset in the show's history. It prompted reactions ranging from stunned to angry from her competitors, the studio audience and even the show's judges.
“I'm really upset. I'm kind of heartbroken,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told Extra. “As a female competitor, we have never seen anybody as good as Sabrina.” –Scott Huver
