Rick Fox is the Latest Dancing with the Stars Casualty

It’s another shocker. Former NBA star Rick Fox was the latest celeb voted off Dancing with the Stars. Rick Fox towered over his tiny but super-talented partner, Cheryl Burke, making him sometimes look awkward onstage, but he had steadily been improving each week.

And compared to the other pro-athlete still on DWTS this season, Kurt Warner, Rick seemed like a professional ballroom dancer. This is the second week in a row that the show has had surprising results—last week, Audrina Patridge was voted off, despite the judges’ proclamations that she could make the Top 3.

So what went wrong? On Monday night—the 200th episode of Dancing with the Stars, now in its 11th season—Rick and Cheryl had to perform a reinterpretation of a dance done in a previous season. The couple scored a 24/30 for their take on the “Banana Man” quickstep, originally performed by Helio Castroneves and his pro partner Julianne. This was a great dance that would be difficult to live up to, but Rick and Cheryl seemed like they had a lot of fun.

Still, Rick didn’t have the lowest score of the night—that honor goes to Bristol Palin, who, despite a few weeks under her belt, still hasn’t shown any emotional growth or presence on stage. Will she be a goner next week?
