Dancer Cristian de la Fuente hurt his arm during "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night, but despite the injury he still remains on the show. Actress Shannon Elizabeth, and her partner Derek Hough, got their walking papers, however.
De la Fuente hurt his arm while dancing the samba Monday night with professional partner Cheryl Burke, and was whisked away to the hospital before the show ended. The cast and crew were asked not to talk about his prognosis, saving those results for a live television audience.
De la Fuente, it turns out, ruptured a tendon in his bicep and will require surgery. According to the Chilean soap star, however, the surgery can wait until after the show and he said he would like to continue dancing. Despite earning the lowest scores from the judges on the night he hurt his arm, he and Burke were not in the bottom two.
Instead, Elizabeth and Hough found themselves in the red light with Marissa Jaret Winokur and pro dancer Tony Dovolani. Elizabeth and Hough received the lowest votes and danced their last dance.
