Pamela Anderson eliminated from 'DWTS: All-Stars': Tristan Macmanus has theory
Pamela Anderson became the first out of 13 celebrity contestants to be eliminated from ABC's "Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars" on Tuesday's results show and was MIA after the taping.
The "Baywatch" actress' pro-dance partner, Tristan MacManus, appeared solo to talk to reporters, which is not an unusual move for losing celebrities.
"Pamela's not here. She's not feeling too well," he told OTRC.com. "She's got her mother in town as well. She's got the rest of her family here. She's obviously a bit disappointed as well, you know what I mean? She's definitely disappointed. I mean we both are."
"But like I said, she's got her family here and she's gone to spend time with her family," he said adding: "She certainly doesn't want to be a bad sport and stuff."
The two had earned 17 out of 30 points for their Cha Cha Cha on Monday's performances show. Their score was the lowest among all the other contestants, while Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy received 19 points for their Foxtrot. (Read a recap of the episode)
"Granted, we didn't rehearse as much as we could have," MacManus told OTRC.com. "We tried to. But again I guess everyone has their own obstacles to overcome. Some people have injuries, which holds them back a bit, some people have work commitments that hold them back and unfortunately, time is ours."
"We certainly put the work into days that we did have," he added. "Unfortunately, they weren't enough. But then I guess on the night, then, the combination of everything - the time, the nerves, the intensity of what we were doing, maybe. Maybe it just didn't pan out the way we wanted it to, unfortunately."
Anderson had previously competed on "Dancing With The Stars" in 2010 during season 10. She and her partner at the time, Damian Whitewood, came in sixth place - the second worst past result out of the 13 celebrities competing in the current "All-Stars" season. Current contestant and Disney Channel star Sabrina Bryan had placed seventh in season 5. Six celebrities out of her current competitors had won their season.
"It's very easy to go 'You're the first one to go,'" Macmanus told OTRC.com. "But I mean, you finished 13th out of 15 seasons of competitiors and I think that's the way to look at it. You were asked back for a reason."
