DWTS: Who Was Finally Eliminated on Monday's Show?

Originally posted 11/03/2014 10:30PM

It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night's Tarzan – better known as Michael Waltrip – couldn’t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle.

The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show.

"It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma's heart and who she is as a person," Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. "I'm happy I got to be here and sad I have to go."

"I'm so emotional," added his pro Emma Slater. "He's made me a better person. You meet these people and he has a big heart. I'll be a better person for the rest of my life."

How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket!

It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr.

No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy.

"I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here."

Pitbull was in the house to perform and guest judge on a night that Dancing with the Stars promised lots of "muy caliente" moments – that is, until the judges (and America) threw cold water on the latest ousted celebrity.

Though he earned an impressive 32 out of 40 for his jazz dance, Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett was the newest star to leave the dance floor Monday.

"Here's the thing," explained Bennett. "I came here to do this show, to have fun, to have a really great experience and to bring life back into my life, and that's what I did. I had the best time of my life."
