Porizkova first to be eliminated from 'Dancing'


Paulina Porizkova, the first celebrity to be eliminated from ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," said she was "predictably bummed" about the decision.

"I feel like the kid on the playground made by the parents to go home when they're not ready yet," the 41-year-old supermodel said.

Porizkova and her professional dancing partner, Alec Mazo, were kicked off the competition during Tuesday night's results show.

"I guess my fan base was my family and they were not extensive enough," she said.

Each week, judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine who will be eliminated. Porizkova and Mazo collected 40 points for their two dances, outscoring last-place couples Billy Ray Cyrus and partner Karina Smirnoff and Clyde Drexler and partner Elena Grinenko, who tied with 34 points each.

Judge Bruno Tonioli told Porizkova she had "class oozing from every pore."

The remaining contenders are Drexler, Cyrus, Ian Ziering, Joey Fatone, Laila Ali, Shandi Finnessey, John Ratzenberger, Leeza Gibbons, Heather Mills and Apolo Anton Ohno.

When asked who will win the competition, Porizkova purred: "They're all winners to me."
