Chaz Bono Goes Home During 'Dancing With the Stars' Week 5 Results

Weeks of low scores finally caught up with the controversial Season 13 competitor and partner Lacey Schwimmer.

The season of surprises is well behind Dancing With the Stars, as most fans probably predicted the week 6 results.

Yes, Maksim Chmerkovskiy's comments during Monday's show could have sent Hope Solo packing, but they also probably ignited his considerable fanbase.

Which left Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, who couldn't overcome weeks of low scores.

The couple seemed to handle the results well, with Chaz saying he wanted to show America "a different kind of man," but after Monday's show, Lacey said she felt the scoring and the comments over the season had been unfair.

"The distasteful words... It's unnecessary. It's rude," she said. "I'm not going too speak poorly of their professions or what they've done in their careers, but they have no business saying the things that they do. This is a dance competition, not a favorites competition."

Chaz didn't take the harsh critiques much better. After Monday's show, he went off on Bruno Tonioli's weight-centric comments in the confessional. (The judge had compared him to a penguin and an Ewok in recent weeks.)

It's had to see anyone go this far along in the competition, but the particularly sour note of this exit makes it even harder.

Did the judges cross a line in their critiques of Chaz? And did the right one go home?
