Everyone’s favorite Dancing With The Stars contestant, former Gov. Rick Perry, has been voted off the dance floor.


Perry got voted off DWTS Tuesday night after his Texas-themed dance with partner Emma Slater. The partners received the lowest score of the night: 20 out of 40.

Perry’s hopes of being on the show were to bring awareness to veterans’ issues and learning to dance for his daughter’s wedding in October. In his departure, Perry seemed upbeat about the outcome.

“My daughter is getting married on the 15th of October, and I can promise you I will look good on the dance floor for her,” said Perry.

Perry was saved the few weeks he was on the show, even when his performances received low scores.

Even though he has been eliminated, Perry can cross running for president and being on reality tv off of his list.
