Considering her low scores throughout the competition, it wasn't too much of a surprise that funnywoman Niecy Nash was eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars" on Tuesday night. She was joined in the bottom two by Cincinnati Bengals football star Chad Ochocinco and his partner, Cheryl Burke.
Nash and her partner, Louis Van Amstel, were the lowest scorers Monday night. Their Viennese waltz failed to resonate with the judges, who said there were too many odd transitions. Still, Len Goodman said Monday night that he was pleasantly surprised and thought the dance had a "lovely floaty" quality about it. Their next dance was a '90s-themed paso doble. Judge Bruno Tonioli said that Nash was a "scary mama" and liked that she threw herself into it, but he wasn't sure if it would end in disaster at various points in the routine.
After learning that she was being eliminated, the "Reno 911!" star said that she was happy she'd made it that far.
"I do feel like I redeemed myself. I am a 40-year-old mother of three, I've got three C-sections under my belly," Nash laughed. "I was able to survive in this competition this long. I cannot hula-hoop with a Cheerio, but I've been able to be one of the last women standing in this competition. I've had a fantastic time being able to live out my dream. I'm a happy girl."
She also thanked Van Amstel for "molding this lump of clay into something."
Now, there are four celebrities left, and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is considered to be the front-runner to win the 10th-season finale. Others moving on to compete next week include ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, Olympic skater Evan Lysacek and Ochocinco.
