LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Magician Penn Jillette and tennis champion Monica Seles were sent home during the first double elimination in “Dancing With the Stars” history, Tuesday night.
Penn had been picked to go home earlier this week by Access Hollywood’s own guest “Dancing” correspondent Mel B.
His elimination took bubbly blonde partner, Aussie Kym Johnson, out of the competition. Johnson has done well with her partners in past seasons. She made it to runner-up status with former *NSync boy bander Joey Fatone in Season 4, and she lasted mid way through the competition last season with billionaire Mark Cuban.
Monica Seles’ elimination meant her partner, Jonathan Roberts, was also sent packing. Roberts also has had success on the show – in Season 4 with Heather Mills, and last season with Marie Osmond.
Adam Carolla, however, who dances with Julianne Hough, may have gotten some of the lowest scores, but was saved to dance again.
“Dancing With the Stars” continues next Monday on ABC.
