LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Last place became last dance for Adam Carolla on “Dancing With the Stars.”
The 43-year-old comedian and his professional partner, two-time champ Julianne Hough, were eliminated from the ABC dance-off during Tuesday’s results show.
Carolla incorporated a unicycle into the couple’s paso doble, but the performance earned a meager 19 out of 30 from the judges during Monday’s show.
“You are such a lovable character that (we) just want you to do well, but unfortunately you’re not much of a dancer,” head judge Len Goodman said.
Judges scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is eliminated each week.
Carolla said he “had the time of my life” during his four weeks on the show.
“I recommend this experience to anyone who’s scared of everything,” he said. “You at home, there’s something that scares you. There’s something that’s your ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ Embrace it. Don’t run from it.”
Looking at his partner, Carolla said, “I lost 25 pounds of fat and I gained 105 pounds of angel.”
Tuesday’s show also featured a mini-competition between two 8-year-old ballroom-dance couples and a live performance by Sheryl Crow, who performed her breakthrough hit, “All I Wanna Do,” and her latest single, “Out of Our Heads.”
The remaining competitors include pro football player Jason Taylor, Olympic skater Kristi Yamaguchi, R&B singer Mario, and actors Shannon Elizabeth, Christian de la Fuente, Marlee Matlin, Priscilla Presley and Marissa Jaret Winokur. Steve Guttenberg, Monica Seles and Penn Jillette have already been eliminated.
