(CBS) After nine weeks of fierce competition, Liberty City’s own Chad Ochocinco bid adieu to the dance floor on Tuesday night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars.”
The Bengals receiver and his partner Cheryl Burke were the 100th couple eliminated on the show.
Ochocinco had zero dancing experience under his belt, and initially received tough criticism from the judges week after week. But, towards the end of his run, Ochocinco worked hard and eventually lined himself up with his fellow star competitors. His last Viennese waltz performance was well received by the audience and the judges were impressed with his level of improvement.
“I’ve enjoyed the journey, I got some great criticism that only made me stronger. In my eyes, I’ve already won,” said Ochochino. “I’ll be here as a professional next year.”
Next week, the three remaining stars will continue to battle for the mirror ball trophy and Ochocinco, along with the entire cast of season 10, will return for the final episode.
