He can't Carey on! Price Is Right host Drew's prediction is proved right as he is kicked off Dancing With The Stars

By Daily Mail Reporter

Published: 06:48, 22 April 2014 | Updated: 10:48, 22 April 2014

As the host of a TV quiz show, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Drew Carey would be so good at guessing the winners and losers on his shows.

The Price Is Right host started his week of rehearsals on Dancing With The Stars saying he knew he was going to be eliminated - and, as predicted, ended the show going home.

‘I feel like this is my last week,’ he told his dance pro Cheryl Burke as they started rehearsals, pointing out they were ‘eight points behind the next person’.


Feeling confident: Drew Carey grinned as he waited to discover his fate on Monday's Dancing With The Stars


The new Derren Brown: Unfortunately for him his prediction he would get booted off this week came true

Despite getting some of his best scores - including a nine - while dressed in an outrageous red pimp suit for a tango to Rick James’s Super Freak, Drew lost out as the viewers’ votes from las week did not save him from such low judges’ marks.

‘I got further than I thought I would, to tell you the truth,’ Drew said after his elimination.
Insisting he had loved the show for years and imagined being a part, he said: ‘I just want to say thanks for letting me borrow this dance floor to fulfill this fantasy.’

Drew had tears in a pre-taped interview, shown after his elimination, when speaking about what being on the show had meant to him.


What a Carey on: Drew seemed on edge as he waited for the result to finally be announced


Touching: The pros held hands while their charges where on tenderhooks waiting for the result


Shocker: Somehow actress Candace Cameron Bure managed to win more votes than the popular funnyman

‘I made a lot of really good friends here,’ he said, his voice already wavering.  ‘Everybody’s so nice. There’s a really good spirit here and a really good friendship and community.’

Now with full tears in his red eyes, he added: ‘And that’s really been the highlight, all the people.’

Even though he expected to be going home, he had insisted on putting on the best performance he could, and won high praise - especially for his outrageous image.

‘I’ve been a baller, I’ve been a player - I’ve never been a pimp,’ Drew had joked to Cheryl when she told him his persona for the dance, with guest judge Redfoo from LMFAO calling him ‘a pimp to the tenth degree’ with ‘a skanky pimp face’

‘I’m like a dad at the wedding,’ Drew joked of his moves, with judge Bruno Tonioli quipping: ‘After a few drinks.’


Making the most of it while it lasts: Drew wore a wide grin as he gave Cheryl one last meaty hug


Paying the price: But even though they felt the right decision was made the judges gave a standing ovation

Meanwhile, while the show is no stranger to stripteases, lots of flesh and outrageous outfits, it was still a shock to see all that happening on the judges’ table.

Redfoo was outrageous as always, wearing shin shorts and a bright red jacket showing plant of chest beneath.

But more shocking was to see all the judges wearing baseball caps, reflective clothing and even wacky bright coloured glasses as they danced along as he performed one of his hits, Let’s Get Ridiculous.

And Bruno Tonioli seemed determined to keep up with him as at one point he whipped off his jacket and doing an over-the-top striptease-like dance - showing off a bright red skin-tight red t-shirt that matched his equally red trousers.

‘Can I ask you, is it cold in here because both your nipples popped just then,’ host Tom Bergeron joked of his tight shirt, exposed while explaining how ‘red hot’ he thought NeNe Leakes’ performance was.


She'll miss his one-liners: The jolly game show host was able to make pro Cheryl Burke laugh with ease


Big draw: The presenters seemed to have a ball working with such a polished old pro


Who needs Mystic Meg? Drew had predicted beforehand he would be heading home

While Bruno appeared keen to keep up with Redfoo in the outrageous style points, the pop star’s exaggerated comments in judging recalled the over-the-top dance judge, too.

After joking that he was ‘the first guest judge to make Bruno look like an accountant’, Bergeron later joked that he was ‘Bruno 2.0’, and raised a huge laugh when he quipped: ‘It’s almost as if you are Carrie Ann and Bruno’s love child.’

On the dance floor there was a clear winner as ice skater Meryl Davis and her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy got four perfect 10s for their tango to Calvin Harris’s Feel So Close.

But their rehearsals had been fraught as Maks felt the pressure to improve after Meryl admitted disappointment at only getting 9s the previous week despite rave comments.

In fact they seemed destined to fight, with Maks at one point angrily asking her: ‘Why are you so f***ing timid?’

But she guessed that he was scared because he wanted them to win so much, and he admitted: ‘I’m terrified, not scared. It’s really crazy, I must be the weakest freaking person on this cast.’

Bruno called their dance a ‘spine-chilling, totally gripping film noir of a tango’, while Carrie Ann Inaba said she was ‘speechless’


It's the Drew Carey show: But his stiff moves were hardly crowd-pleasers as he stomped around the dance floor


Stiff as a board: His wooden performance was in stark contrast to that of his lithe partner

When she finally found the words, she told them: ‘From my heart there is something so magical happening between these two. It’s mind boggling and it’s truly artistic excellence.’

Len Goodman, meanwhile, told Meryl: ‘Maks dances full on. You’re the first celebrity that’s been able to match him and keep up with him.’
‘I say, “ET phone home”,’ Redfoo said. ‘You know why? Because that was out of this world. It was like you were gliding across the solar system from star to star, it was so magical. ‘I’ve never seen anything like that.’

The power of their performance also brought out one of the most light-hearted moments of the evening. Asked what had brought out the better side of him, Maks said it was because Meryl had been the first person to ask, ‘Hold my hand’ - leading fellow dance pro Tony Dovolani to step forward and gently clasp his hand.

Close behind was an incredible jive by Amy Purdy and Derek Hough that got two 10s, with the judges giving 9s only doing so because of a slight slip-up in the middle of their routine.

‘Marry me, darling, marry me. Seriously,’ Bruno asked her following her performance where she dressed as a bride with Derek crashing the wedding.


Big finish: But Drew's point about him being the worst dancer left was proven only too accurate


Frank Bruno: Honest judge Tonioli did not pull any punches as he delivered his post-dance critique

‘This is a real live superhero. What you have achieved most of us would consider impossible. I don’t think I’ve seen in 18 seasons here and 11 in the UK anybody doing what you’ve done tonight.’

Carrie Ann agreed, saying: ‘I swear you had the best kicks and flicks I’ve ever seen out of anyone, ever.’ But she admitted: ‘Len is also right there was a bit of a slip up.’

Amy’s amazing performance was right inline with her prediction in rehearsals, when she said: ‘I’m an Olympian so I know timing is everything. I know that now is the time for me to break free from the pack and head to the top.’

But she also got tearful at the thought of no longer having her ‘incredible once-in-a-lifetime moments with Derek’. ‘I just don’t want it to end,’ she said.

Danica McKellar and Charlie White also had strong nights, each getting 9s across the board.

Charlie’s Cha Cha Cha to C+C Music Factory’s Everybody Dance Now had Bruno once again dancing wildly, while Carrie Ann called it ‘hot, sexy and funky’.


Not much better: His elimination rival Candace Cameron Bure was not much better and got an equally low score


Comic cut: The Full House favourite was able to laugh it all off as she chatted afterwards

Meanwhile Danica’s dance to Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody had Bruno praising her for having a ‘playful verve and vivacity of a purring little kitten’. ‘Adorable all the way through,’ he said.

As they waited for her scores, her pro dance partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy fiddled constantly with her hair, admitting: ‘It’s a nervous tic - when I get nervous I start braiding things.’

‘What do you do when you’re calm, give a perm?’ co-host Erin Andrews shot back.

Val also made an unexpected shout-out to Danica’s boyfriend, saying: ‘I want to say thank you to her incredible boyfriend Scott who’s very understanding and allowed me to dance with this beautiful person.’

When Erin suggested Val was doing him a favor by teaching him sexy moves she would take home, Val smiled and said: ‘You’re welcome, Scott.’

After getting the first perfect score of the season last week, James Maslow had a much tougher time with a quick step to Grease’s The One That I Want.


Raising their pro-file: Derek Hough led his fellow professional's through another thrilling big number


He's no plonker: Del Boy made it look easy as he pulled off tricky choreography with aplomb

‘As a performer you’re the one that I want - but the technique is more “tears on my pillow”, I’m afraid,’ Len told him.

‘You’re footwork was heavy, you flexed your knees too much, there was a rule infringement when you went into shadow position. It was fast - but speed came in and the style went out.’

While Len gave an 8, the other three judges gave 9s, with Bruno calling it ‘absolutely wonderful’.

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani were seen emotional kissing and making up after their fight the previous week, with Tony bringing a beautiful bouquet of flowers to rehearsals.

And there were more kisses as NeNe - dressed all in yellow - stopped for a quick kiss with her husband as her routine took her through the audience and onto the dance floor.

‘You’ve cornered the market in fun and entertainment, you really have,’ Len told her, adding that she needs to ‘work a little more on your technique’ to get further.


Guest star: LMFAO favourite Redfoo put in an appearance as a guest judge on the show


Putting his money where his mouth is: And he proved to be rather handy on the dance floor himself

‘You looked like an entrepreneur out there - because you OWNED that,’ Redfoo told her. 

They got three 8s and one 9, and afterwards NeNe told Erin: ‘We had a little tiff but Tony and I are very much in love.’

Erin seemed more impressed with Tony’s shirtless physique, asking him: ‘Did we eat this week?’

Candace Cameron Bure had the lowest score of the remaining contestants, but still respectable with all 8s for her Cha Cha Cha to Icona Pop’s I Love It.

She once again struggled with playing sexy, saying during rehearsals: ‘Being the sexy girl isn’t inherently me.’

But after her dance, Bruno gushed: ‘Candace, look at you! The thing is you’re sexy, you just don’t know it!’

‘There are moments of brilliance,’ he said, adding that ‘there are moments when you are almost stopping yourself’, a comment all four judges agreed was letting her down.


Spec-tacular: He lived up to his whacky image when he delivered a thrilling performance of his own


Someone's a fan: And saucy judge Carrie Ann Inaba had obviously taken a shine to the singer

Here's a recap of the dances, from highest scores to lowest:

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy -- 40 out of 40

Long before we saw Meryl's perfect Tango, we saw quite a therapy session between the Olympian and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She was disappointed in last week's scores; Maks is disappointed he hadn't been able to push her to the "10s" club yet.

He's also beating himself up for getting sucked into the competition and starting to want the mirror ball again. With Meryl as a partner it's a real possibility, and Maks doesn't want his head to go there.

They give a pep talk to each other and it's about the sweetest thing we've ever seen. Head judge Len Goodman recognizes their special partnership; Bruno Tonioli complimented Maks' choreography; Carrie Ann Inaba called them magical thinks Meryl is as good as any professional; Redfoo thought it looked like they were gliding across the solar system, jumping from star to star.

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough -- 38 out of 40

I know I sound like a broken record but Amy Purdy amazes me every single week. She's does the JIVE, the dance every person for 18 seasons has said is next to impossible to master, and she has two prosthetic legs.

Her competitive nature is also helping to push her through, and Derek Hough seems to know just the right way to choreograph for her. They had one little slip up, but come on! And at the end of the dance, she does a flipping cartwheel!

Len called it a fantastic performance even with "the incident." Carrie Ann told Amy she does the best "kicks and flicks" she's ever seen on the show and Redfoo simply screamed.

Charlie White and Sharna Burgess -- 36 out of 40

Meryl's skating partner had to tackle one of his biggest dance foes: the hip moving Cha cha cha. He and Sharna Burgess had to do all their rehearsing on the road because he's on tour. (And doesn't that mean Meryl is too? That wasn't mentioned in her piece but they are a team, right?)

Sharna doesn't ease up on anything and puts together a tough routine, but Charlie rises to the occasion. And two thirds into the dance ... they go day glow! I must say Sharna's fake glow in the dark eyelashes did scare me a little.

Carrie Ann said this was the kind of party she likes; Redfoo said it made him want to get up and dance; Len was the party pooper, saying he wasn't keen with the black light fun (because he's old and grumpy. His words not mine!).

Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy -- 36 out of 40

Kudos to Winnie Cooper for dancing a great routine just minutes after being told she's in jeopardy! Before that wrench was thrown into the mix, she told us she felt like a real contender after last week's "Beauty and the Beast" quickstep. Maybe this "jeopardy" thing is just a mind game?

Val Chmerkovskiy choreographs a very tough Cha cha cha and drills her throughout the week, but it pays off. Len called it the best dance of the night and Danica tears up when Carrie Ann tells her she sees how much she's grown and calls her a "full blossom."

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd -- 35 out of 40

James and Peta Murgatroyd and worried about having set the bar unattainably high after getting a perfect score last week. Peta tells us the perfect score for the beautiful dance from "Let it Go" was the highlight of all her seasons on the show.

This week they have the Quickstep, and guess what, the steps are very quick. James says this type of dance is tough for him but he's determined. They channel their best Danny and Sandy from "Grease" and try to convince us that yes they are the ones that we want.

Carrie called him leading man material; Redfoo said their quickness reminded him of two crabs in the sand (?) and that was a good thing; and then Len threw cold water over the whole thing and said there was no technique, heavy footwork AND a rule infringement.

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani -- 33 out of 40

Nene and Tony Dovolani acknowledge they had a rough patch last week, but they are over it and they want us all to be over it too. Couples have disagreements; couples make up. They have a good rehearsal week and Nene says it means something good came out of the drama.

Their dance is the Salsa, performed to Nelly's "Hot N Herre" and Tony's shirtless again! Len tells her she's cornered the market on fun; Carrie Ann said she looked more comfortable this week than ever and Redfoo called her an "entrepreneur" because "she owned that dance." I think that makes sense?

Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas -- 32 out of 40

Candace has put up the caution sign all season when it comes to sexy costumes and she still hits speed bumps when it comes to putting on a sexy character and shaking those hips. Her dance is the Cha cha cha this week, so the hips are crucial!

Mark Ballas works his, well, hips off, in rehearsal. He says again that most of her issues are in her head and she needs to stop overthinking things. You can definitely see her improvement over the weeks. Bruno said she's sexy, but just doesn't know it and Len praised her leg action. I'm wondering if they used one of Mark's old mirror ball trophies for bling on her dress, his tie, and his shoes.

Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke -- 32 out of 40

Drew tells Cheryl Burke in the rehearsal room that he feels like he's a goner. They do the Tango to "Superfreak" and he plays the part of a pimp ... and has a blast. The judges all continue to praise Drew's showmanship and commitment, he just didn't quite keep up with the technique as much as his competitors. Drew said he got farther on the show than he ever expected, and said this experience was a fantasy come true.

Next week: Latin night with Ricky Martin!
