Dancing with the Stars Elimination: Chad Ochocinco

by at . Comments

Chad Ochocinco's run on Dancing with the Stars has come to an end.

The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and his pro partner / rumored love interest Cheryl Burke were eliminated on the penultimate week of Dancing with the Stars last night.

Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy joined them in the bottom two, but survived, as did Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough and Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya.

Ochocinco, the only remaining semifinalist with no dance training (making his performances this week, while the lowest-scored, all the more impressive) is still pleased.

"This was awesome," the NFL star said. "I enjoyed the journey. I got some great criticism. I met awesome people, including the beautiful Cheryl Burke. I already won."

Great attitude from a great competitor.
