"Dancing with the Stars" season 16 has seen its sixth elimination on Tuesday night, with Victor Ortiz being sent home.
Ortiz and his professional dance partner Lindsay Arnold danced the rumba Monday night and earned the lowest scores with just 18 points. The boxer had been among the lowest-scoring couples since week one, and on Tuesday, said goodbye to his partner and the rest of the "DWTS" cast.
"I had a blast, I made great friends, so at the end of the day it was a heck of an experience, I hope these beautiful people stay with me along my next journey," said the boxer.
Andy Dick and his partner Sharna Burgess also found themselves in jeopardy of elimination of Tuesday, but were fortunately safe. They had tied with Ortiz and his partner Linsday Arnold with the lowest scores during Monday's performance show.
With performances by Stevie Wonder and Will.i.Am, ABC's reality television show included many surprises on the dance floor this week.
During Monday's episode, music legend Stevie Wonder delivered a live performance of some of his hit songs such as "Ma Cherie Amour."
Furthermore, singer Kellie Pickler and her partner Derek Hough continued their reign at the top of the leaderboard with their quickstep, earning 29 out of 30 points.
Also a strong contestant, Zendaya and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy tied in the number one spot with 29 points.
