Chaz Bono Gets the Boot From 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)
It was a journey that lasted longer than some expected, but Chaz Bono finally met his match on Dancing With the Stars and was eliminated on Tuesday night's show.
Despite some seriously low marks from other competitors this week, Chaz couldn't dig out of his lowest-score-of-the-night hole, which eventually sent he and pro partner Lacey Schwimmer packing. Chaz was up against Hope Solo and her feisty partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy -- who went into a bit of a tirade against judge Len Goodman following his performance this week, making many think his antics would get the duo sent home. However, ultimately it was Chaz who had to take off his dancing shoes.
"I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man. If there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different. So, I dedicate everything I did to all the people like me especially the kids and teens who are struggling," he proudly said during his exit speech.
Chaz also noted that his time on the show was "an amazing journey that really pushed me and showed me I could do so much more than I ever thought I could."
