It’s an honor no one wants and this season it was two times the humiliation, as ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ cut a male and a female contestant from their overstuffed line-up of 16 celebrities.

Ashley Hamilton and Macy Gray were the first celebrities eliminated from the show, which wasn’t a surprise, considering both were in last place with 19 points. Neither was finding Tom DeLay and Kathy Ireland along with them in the Bottom Two.

At least ‘Dancing’ made being the first to go a bit more palatable this year with a funny skit called ‘The Losers Club,’ featuring such past first timers as skit mainstay Kenny Mayne.

Other highlights of Wednesday’s results show included a number from ‘The Lion King’ and a touching tribute to everybody’s favorite ‘Dirty’ dancer, the late Patrick Swayze.

Tony and Cheryl had the ‘Time of Your Life’ playing Johnny and Baby in the classic routine–with Baby’s big lift and all–from Swayze’s dance classic ‘Dirty Dancing,’ while Chelsie and Dmitry swayed to ‘She’s Like the Wind,’ and Anna and Jonathan took on a ‘Ghost’ number.
