The Bachelor himself is eliminated. Jake Pavelka is leaving "Dancing with the Stars" this week after stumbling in samba and criticized by the judges as having poor wiggle ability. For having the lowest combined score, Jake was in the bottom two along with Niecy Nash who didn't do well in tango.

"You know what, this is, I think, the best season of Dancing With [the] Stars I've seen," Jake said after learning his fate. "I was so honored to be here. I enjoyed every second of this. I want to thank Texas, I want to thank all the Mavericks fans, Canada, all the tweets, Facebook. ...thank you for keeping me here for six episodes. I can't even put it into words how much I enjoyed this."

And with teary eyes, Jake turned to his dancing partner, Chelsie Hightower, and said "Thank you so much. You're one of my best friends. I have loved every second of this. I love you. Thank you for being so great to my beautiful fiancee Vienna. Thank you everybody for watching and keeping me in."

Oh please...stop with the fake tears. Glad he is off. He is arrogant like his so called fiance. Let's see how long that romance lasts.

On Monday nights show he said "I'm not leaving". Guess who's eating his words now! Now if they'll just get Pamela Anderson off!

Oh please? What was his motivation -- hasn't he had WAY more than his 15 minutes of fame? The bachelor franchise needs to stop doing re-treads and so does DWTS ... Get away from the d-list celebs.
