Lachey has been blogging for PEOPLE.com about his return to the ballroom with pro Anna Trebunskaya for the DWTS all-stars seasonthough the pair were eliminated on Oct. 9.

Well, all good things must come to an end. This past Monday, Helio [Castroneves] and I were the victims of a double elimination. I wish I could say this came as a complete surprise, but that wouldn't be all together true.

I had already been in the bottom 2 in week one, and my judges' scores weren't as good as some of the other competitors. Even with those facts, I thought our cha-cha was good enough to keep us in the competition. Anna and I were the first couple to perform this week, and we scored a 24 with our dance that we performed to Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love."

Drew Lachey on Dancing Elimination: 'It Really Sucks!'

Originally posted 10/10/2012 07:30AM

Tuesday night's double-elimination on Dancing with the Stars produced sighs of relief from saved bottom scorers Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas – but eliminated pair Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya were left with feelings of angst.

"Oh, my gosh, I was so robbed!" Trebunskaya, 31, told reporters backstage after she and Lachey, 36, learned their fate. "Are you kidding me? I have an amazing partner. We had so much fun together. I feel robbed of having the fun of working with this person."

Lachey supported his partner's sentiments.

It was double the nail-biting on Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars.

Unlike in prior weeks of this season's all-star competition, two couples were sent home at the end of the night.

Following Monday night's show, bottom-two regulars Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas landed in the last place spot, despite earning their highest score of the season. Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy tied for second-to-last with Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya.

The first round of eliminations came down to Lachey/Trebunskaya and Alley/Chmerkovskiy, and it was Lachey who got the boot.

Well, it has been an eventful week. It started off with Joey Fatone being eliminated from the competition. This came as a shock to all of us. With scores in the middle of the pack and a strong fan base, everybody thought he would be safe.

Joey was the person who was always cracking a joke and keeping it light when things would get stressful. It just once again shows you that this show is about so much more than just dancing. He will be missed.

Just as Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson were getting back into the swing of Dancing with the Stars, their time was cut short, as a result of Tuesday night's elimination.

"I was feeling a little more comfortable [this week]," Johnson, 36, told PEOPLE backstage following the show, just one week after wrongly convincing herself and Fatone they were going home for sure.

"If we had a bad dance, I would understand," Johnson told reporters of her elimination. "But I feel like we did a good dance [this week] ... Everyone seemed to like that dance. The judges even said it was the most entertaining."

With 12 celebrity contestants and their professional partners still remaining on the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, Monday night made jive come alive – with decidedly mixed results.

Emmy-winning emcee Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke Charvet kept the suspense building until the judges rendered their scores – including the season's first 9 – while the audience audibly jeered those times that lower numbers were delivered.

On a high-tension night, Pamela Anderson went from the raucous and ultimately unforgiving ballroom to the quiet comfort of family.

"It's tough," said her pro partner Tristan MacManus after the actress was the first to be booted from Dancing with the Stars: All Stars Tuesday. "Pam has her family. That's who she wants to be with."

Anderson, 45, skipped the post-show media interviews and let MacManus speak to the letdown they both felt when host Tom Bergeron announced that the combined audience and judge scores landed in her last place.
