Watch The Situation’s ‘Dancing’ Elimination (VIDEO)

/ October 13, 2010

Last night’s Dancing with the Stars ended with a Situation elimination… and a bit of poor sportsmanship (dancemanship?) from the Jersey Shore’s chief fist pumper.

It came down to Bristol Palin and The Sitch, but he was the one who got the boot for an Argentine Tango that some called the worst in show history! Though he stormed off the Dancing set Monday night after tough judge Bruno Tonioli called his routine a “terrible mess,” The Sitch attempted to go the humble route in his on-air post-elimination interview.

“It is what it is. I tried my best and at the end of the day somebody’s got to go home,” he said. “If I made it to the fourth round, that was my best I guess.”

The Shore star swore he gave it his all, seeming to take comfort in some high points, like last week’s futuristic foxtrot.

“I’m not a dancer and I tried to practice. It’s definitely hard,” he added. “On Jersey Shore, you get a little keyhole into who I am. On Dancing with the Stars, you got to see the real Situation.”

But while The Sitch played it classy on the air, he skipped post-show interviews with reporters backstage, according to E!, which points out that “that never happens with DWTS eliminates,” (most of whom like to close out their final 15 minutes of fame.)

The Sitch’s partner Karina Smirnoff said he might have been an actual sore loser, after complaining of a wisdom tooth or sore throat prior to the taping.

Recall the dance that cost him the competition here:
