After the surprising elimination during "Disney Week," which saw the departure of Carole Baskin, another celebrity was left to pack their bags on Dancing With the Stars following Monday's episode. Anne Heche and her partner, Keo Motsepe, were the third couple to be sent home this season, also joining the first pair to be eliminated, Charles Oakley and partner Emma Slater. The elimination proved to be controversial due to a slip-up that saw host Tyra Banks reveal the wrong bottom-two, at one point leaving three couples up there and having to call another back who was wrongly listed as safe.
The judges were left to decide between saving Monica Aldama or Heche, as the latter went home after scoring a 21 for their rumba to "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. The evening was packed with 13 dances in total. Some of the more headline-worthy ones include A.J. McLean tapping into his Backstreet Boys days and using "Larger Than Life" as this week's song, much to the delight of the band's fans. Skai Jackson also paid tribute to the late Disney Channel actor, Cameron Boyce, in a touching moment.
With another week in the books, here is a look at some of the most notable reactions to fans seeing Heche, who also spoke about the criticism she faced while dating Ellen DeGeneres during the episode, being the next celebrity eliminated.
