(LOS ANGELES) — Viewers won’t Baywatch-ing Pamela Anderson compete on Dancing with the Stars the rest of this season.
The former Baywatch beauty and her pro partner, Tristan MacManus, on Tuesday night became the first couple to be eliminated from Dancing with the Stars‘ all-star season. It was hardly a surprise — they received the lowest overall score, 17 out of 30, on Monday night’s performance show following a shaky cha cha cha.
After the results were announced, Anderson said she had prepared herself for an early exit, and she vowed that she will dance with MacManus again. It wasn’t an empty promise, since Anderson will be invited back to the ballroom at some point later this season to perform, albeit strictly for fun.
Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya joined Anderson and MacManus in the bottom two.
As always, the results were determined by combining judges’ scores with viewers’ votes.
The two-hour results show also featured Justin Bieber performing his hit “As Long As You Love Me” and Pitbull delivering the network TV debut of his new single, “Don’t Stop the Party.”
The second week of the all-star season begins next Monday night on ABC.
