Former Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson and her pro partner Tristan MacManus became the first couple to leave Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars series after recieving a 17 out of 30 for their cha-cha during the show’s premiere on Monday night.
“I was ready for it,” said Pamela Tuesday, when DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke called her name for elimination. “But we’re going to keep dancing.”
The other contestants who were in the bottom three with Anderson were Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, and her partner Mark Ballas and 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey and partner Anna Trebunskaya.
The show’s cast reacted to Pamela Anderson’s elimination after the show.
“She’s so sweet and she’s awesome,” said Karina Smirnoff alongside her celebrity partner Apollo Ohno. “I love watching her [and] her personality, the way she carries herself.”
Following her elimination, Pamela made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel and admitted she was very busy traveling last month and did not get proper time to rehearse with partner Tristan MacManus.
“I screwed up so many things. I did terrible,” Anderson, 45, said.
Lightening the mood, Kimmel quipped:
“Well the good thing is, at least you can go from wearing your skimpy dance outfits to wearing your skimpy regular clothes.”
