Maria Menounos Eliminated from Dancing with the Stars: Twitter Reacts
Written by Staff
  • Maria Menounos, host of the news program “Extra”, and her dance partner Derek Hough were recently eliminated from the popular American rug-cutting competition “Dancing with the Stars”. Although the pair had the highest scores of the evening, apparently voters were tired of seeing the two perform each and every week. Tuesday night, they were officially booted from the show.

    “We finished last night and I was so happy, I was over the moon and I said to [Derek], ‘I did what I had to do. And tomorrow–que sera!’ Whatever happens from this point on, no one will ever know. But I did it. I’m happy and proud of what I did,” Menounos told Us Weekly.

    Derek Hough, Menounos’ 26 year-old partner, seems to be quite pleased with their overall performance. [We went] out on a high note. We have not had a bad dance.”

    With this pair eliminated, only three teams remain. You can sample some Twitter reactions to their elimination by glancing over the posts you see embedded below.
