Petra Nemcova talked about overcoming personal challenges following her elimination from "Dancing With The Stars" on Tuesday, April 19. "All of us, we can do something - even if we think it's so impossible and whatever challenges in front of us, if physical or a life challenge, we can overcome it if we try and try and try and we will achieve it," Nemcova, a 31-year-old Czech supermodel and survivor of the 2004 tsunami in southeast Asia, told OnTheRedCarpet.com. The remaining celebrities left on the ABC ballroom dancing show's 12th season are Kirstie Alley, wrestling star Chris Jericho, "Karate Kid" Ralph Macchio, Disney star Chelsie Kane, hip hop artist Romeo, football player Hines Ward and Playboy model and reality television actress Kendra Wilkinson. Alley praised Nemcova during an interview with OnTheRedCarpet.com following the supermodel's elimination. The remaining contestants are preparing for "Guilty Pleasures" week on "Dancing With The Stars" and will dance songs people are afraid to admit they love on Monday's episode. The next day's results show will feature performances from pop groups New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys, who are set to tour North American with "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks in the summer, as well as from Pia Toscano, who was eliminated from "American Idol" earlier this month. Toscano and "Dancing With The Stars" pro-dancer Mark Ballas, Kane's partner, have been the target of dating rumors in recent weeks. Ballas told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Tuesday: "She's very lovely. She's awesome. We're hanging out." Watch photos from the episode, as well as video interviews with the cast backstage, updated after every show.
