'DWTS' Results Recap: Sean Lowe Should Have Been Gone Two Weeks Ago

Victor OrtizCan someone tell me why on Earth former Bachelor Sean Lowe is still on Dancing With the Stars? He can't dance, his stint on The Bachelor ended a while ago, and he is really, really not interesting in any other way. He should have been off a show calling him a "star" three episodes ago. But somehow, he lives to fight another day.

Look, I get that the show is allegedly about voting and scores. I do get that. But how Andy Dick and Sean Lowe both survived another week is kind of beyond me. Do these men really have fans?

Tonight's elimination was a bit of a surprise. It wasn't a person I would have pegged. (*SPOILERS AHEAD.)

Tonight, boxer Victor Ortiz was sent packing. It's kind of insane given he and his partner Lindsay Arnold were easily much better than Andy Dick and Sean Lowe. But again, it's never about the talent and almost always about the fans. Sigh.

OK, that's not true. Talent AND fans have to come together. Consider that I would highly doubt Zendaya has many fans (did anyone know who she was?), but her talent convinces most of us she needs to stay. But with those people on the bubble? Forget it. All bets are off.

For instance, tonight, Team Paso got picked for the encore performance to "Higher Ground" -- thanks to fan tweets -- even though Team Samba had beaten them handily in the competition with the judges. Hmmm. This is the kind of thing that annoys me about this show.

So we said goodbye to Ortiz. We knew we would. We knew he wouldn't win. But still, he had a couple more dances. Tonight, Sean Lowe should have danced his last.

I guess there is always next week. 

Did you think the right person went home tonight?

Yes Sean has a lot of fa s that are behind him.

Jean Scott

Andy Dick makes me sick! Why is his stiff bod still on the show?

Erin McLaughlin

I agree with you somewhat, but Andy has consistently entertained every week even if he is not the best dancer on the show. I personally was furious that  Victor got sent packing last night. As far as Zendaya goes, there are probably more people than you think that know who she is. Her Disney channel show has been on for three years and I will guarentee you that as many adults watch it as kids do because it is Disney. I personally hate Sean. I don't consider him a star or a good dancer. Because of Victor leaving my votes are now split between Zendaya, Andy and Ingo Rademacher. Andy probably deserves the win more than anybody there, because he is trying so hard and has been through so much.

Gayle S Stever

I have been voting to keep Andy on the show for many of the same reasons as the previous poster (Erin). He is entertaining, he is trying very hard, and honestly he IS a much better dancer than either Victor or Sean. I was annoyed that he got 3 sixes from the judges while Sean got 7's...what was that about? Sean will go next and then probably Andy if the previous weeks' voting is any clue. BTW Andy has not been in the bottom two for the last weeks.....they have him in jeopardy but he isn't not there at the end...which makes me wonder where he really is in the standings...because yes it IS about fan votes! :)

I agree. Sean can't dance & obviously thrives on attention. In my opinion he is wasting time, everyones. The Bachelor thing kept him on last nite. I'll believe the wedding when I see it.

Audrey Roberts

They sent the wrong person home last night. I don't understand why Sean is still there. They are sending people home who are better dancers.

Because Bruno has the freakin' hots for Sean that is why they keep him...i cannot stand him...hated him on the bachelor and hate him even more here ruining one of my favorite shows!

I have been voting for kellie and derek as much as I can. She is good and a sweetheart. Zendaya has alot of dance experience behind her shouldn't even be on the show and too young compared to rest of dancers. she has an extreme advantage.
