Perhaps the most popular actress to perform on “Dancing With the Stars” has done her last dance.
Pamela Anderson was ousted from the hit ABC show Tuesday.
Judges praised the 42-year-old sex symbol throughout the season for her dedicated performances and convincing characterization. They appreciated the waltz she and professional partner Damian Whitewood performed on Monday’s episode, giving it a score of 24 out of 30. Viewers, though, failed to keep the “Baywatch” beauty afloat.
Judges’ scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which celebrity is cast off each week.
“This has been one of the best experiences of my life – and that says a lot. I’ve had a lot of good experiences,” Anderson said after learning her fate.
She thanked her partner and said she wishes her fellow dancers well.
“I love everybody here,” she said.
Anderson said that learning to dance allowed her to focus in a way she hadn’t before.
“I’m really proud of the effort I’ve put into it,” she said. “I’ve never been able to apply myself in this kind of way. This is a dream come true.”
