Chaz Bono, the controversial contestant on Dancing With the Stars, has been asked to hang up his dancing shoes. Having been in the bottom of the group the previous night, the judges finally eliminated Bono and his dancing partner Lacey Schwimmer.
While his participation on the show was met with protest, Chaz remained positive and focused. After being eliminated he told hosts Tom and Brooke "I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man," Chaz says. "I know that if there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different."
