Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Results: Did The Right Couple Go Home?

SEAN LOWE, PETA MURGATROYDIt took six long weeks, but Sean Lowe finally danced (totally) sans shirt on Monday, fulfilling that fine print in his Dancing With the Stars Season 16 contract that you know stipulated he show off his trademark pecs and abs.

But with Sean’s requisite pec-baring moment behind him, the focus turned to the fumble-footed hunk’s not-so-fancy footwork — and that had to be good news for the struggling Victor Ortiz and Andy Dick.

While he may have been overscored with a 21, my stone cold heart still crumbled a little for Sean, as he bravely faced the wrath of Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno, whose memorable zinger – “Look on the bright side, you can always get a job as a stripper” – aptly summed up their sentiments about his sizzle-free, sadsack Samba. Listen to the music, Sean, because taking off your pants next week is not an option!

With those memories still fresh, tonight’s live results show crackled with an air of welcome elimination-induced tension, despite the requisite behind-the-scenes clips (the “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” musical clips came up especially flat) and musical performances by Olly Murs and will.i.am.

But without further ado, here’s the real moment of truth — tonight’s results:

“I had a blast, I made great friends… at the end of the day, it was a heck of an experience,” said Ortiz on losing out on his (long shot) Mirrorball dream, before inviting the cast of Season 16 to sit ringside at his next fight! “I’m happy to get this far,” said Ortiz, before adding with a chuckle, “I definitely need some dance moves.”

And with that, it’s your turn. Which couple should have really gone home tonight — or was Victor the right choice? Is Ingo Rademacher’s son Peanut (“see you at the after-party!”) the cutest part of DWTS this season? And are Sean’s pants fair game next week? Sound off in the comments!
