Audrina Patridge was sent packing for the hills on Tuesday night's "Dancing With the Stars."
It was a shocker, as Patridge was considered a front-runner in the competition and one of the strongest dancers — she and partner Tony Dovolani scored the second-highest numbers of Monday's competition. Patridge danced the paso doble and came in behind pop singer Brandy, with the judges saying that she needed to work on being a bit more aggressive. Still, they concluded that she had the kind of moves that could blow them away week after week. But apparently the call-in voters didn't agree.
Despite the judges' praise, it was Patridge and Dovolani who landed in the bottom two alongside another former front-runner, Jennifer Grey, and her partner Derek Hough. The judges were clearly shocked, and head judge Len Goodman said it was "ludicrous" that either of these two contestants would be going home. "We like the underdog, but we like justice more, and there is no justice [in] these two being here. It's nonsense," Goodman said.
And when it was announced that former "Hills" reality star Patridge would be going home, she seemed a bit shocked herself. "I was really pushing it, trying to get more character, but I guess I just can't tap into that right now," she said after her name was announced.
Patridge was gracious though, adding that being on the show was a great experience.
Tuesday night's performers for "Rock Week" were Heart, who performed their classic "Barracuda," the kids from "School of Rock," and Kylie Minogue.
