Father knows best?
Romeo, the latest contestant eliminated on Dancing with the Stars, may have told the audience he was "surprised" about his dismissal at the end of Tuesday's show but it seems someone very close to him was not.
"My dad called me at six o'clock this morning," Romeo, 21, told reporters Tuesday night. "I was expecting to sleep until at least 10. He called me and gave me a speech about how proud of me he is no matter what the outcome of tonight is."
The phone call had Romeo wondering if his dad knew something he didn't. "[He said], 'You're a winner. Nobody expected you to come this far,' " Romeo said. "And I was like, 'Do you know that I'm going home or something?' I was like, 'Dad, save your speech for a few more weeks from now.' "
