Michael Irvin and Mark Dacascos Eliminated from Dancing with the Stars

at . Comments

It took longer than it should have, but Dancing with the Stars sent its two least talented contestants home last night.

No offense, Michael Irvin and Mark Dacascos, but you lasted longer on the competition than you deserved to. The former was gracious in defeat, at least, saying:

"Thank you. Last night was a great night, and to see the audience here standing up as a way of saying they appreciate the hard work, it means a great deal to a lot of people right now, with the economy going the way it has."


As for Dacascos, he expressed a new appreciation for professional dancers upon learning of his elimination:

"Certainly much harder than it looks on television - it's a lot easier to watch it than do it."

He'll have the chance to see if that's the case next week, as Kelly, Donny, Aaron, Mya and Joanna Krupa each perform a pair of individual dances. Who do you want to see win?
