We can’t believe that Romeo was sent home last night on "Dancing With the Stars."
It was the upset of the season (thus far) when Romeo was pulled from the competition. We never saw it coming this soon for him.
When Romeo was in the bottom three we weren’t worried. We were confident that our guy would make it through. He posted decent scores on Monday night, and we know that ladies of all ages have been voting for him!
When he was left in the bottom two, we got a little nervous because that put him perilously close to elimination, which we refused to believe would happen to Romeo this week.
Anyway, he was going up against Ralph Macchio, whose peformances have been somewhat shaky over the past weeks because of a leg injury. Not to mention, Romeo just out performs him every single week.
In our minds, there was no way that Romeo was going home last night. So, when Tom Bergeron announced that the Jumping the Broom cutie was cut from the competition, we were speechless.
Even the commentators on Dance Center couldn’t really say anything bad about Romeo’s moves.
Granted it’s getting down to the final weeks and the competition is getting even more fierce, but there is no way that Romeo should have been bumped from the ballroom last night!
Why Romeo? Why this week? Where’s the justice?!
Of course, if Romeo had to lose to anyone, there’s something to be said for being knocked off the dance floor by the Karate Kid himself. How many other unjustly eliminated stars can say the same? Not Lil’ Kim and definintely not Brandy! We’re still mad about that shocking elimination from last year BTW.
Even the judges were stunned to see Romeo go before Ralph. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba couldn’t keep her jaw off the floor.
" I was surprised because that was one of my best dances," Romeo said, graciously taking the elimination in stride. "At the same time, I’m not surprised because the competition this year–anybody could go at any time."
