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."

No one got eliminated Monday on Dancing with the Stars but there were lots of new – and hazardous! – moves going on under the mirror ball.
"Bang Bang" singer Jessie J had the unenviable task of guest judging on a night that involved switch-ups among the duos – and not everybody got the partner they deserved. (Tough luck, Michael Waltrip!)

Even on a night that saw two perfect scores on Dancing with the Stars, someone still had to leave the ballroom for good.
Sadly, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff began the night knowing they were in jeopardy. Based on scores from viewers and the judges last week, the duo became the third couple to leave the dance floor.
"It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture.
Besides a roof-raising appearance by guest judge Kevin Hart, lots of other fun surprises happened underneath the mirror ball Monday. Here were the scores:

The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Monday's edition of Dancing with the Stars, so the numbers were as varied as a bikini song samba to a Cyndi Lauper-inspired foxtrot.

A missed cue and a battle with a boa kept a few stars from putting their best foot forward, but the 19th season premiere of Dancing with the Stars brought plenty of good scores and great moments – at least those that involve Cheech.
"The ballroom is bursting with enthusiasm," exclaimed host Tom Bergeron – a hilarious quip that was actually directed at Julianne Hough's bust line, but could also describe some of the night's best highlights.
Here were the scores:
