Dancing with the Stars 10 concludes as only its three ringers remain

Apparently, Dancing with the Stars 10 kept broadcasting new episodes after Kate Gosselin was voted out, and now just three ringers are left competing for the world’s worst trophy.

Although I am no fan of Kate’s, I literally did watch to see her try hard yet keep failing, and her exit was the last time I posted about the show: one month and four days ago. About the only other notable thing about this season was that it beat Idol in the ratings earlier this season–thanks in part to Kate.

Now, only ESPN’s Erin Andrews, Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger, and Olympian Evan Lysacek remain; all have some background in dance, so it’s unsurprising they remain. The two women are tied with 55 points from the judges, while Evan has 52, so basically it’s anyone’s game. The two-hour finale starts at 9 p.m. ET, and will include the return of Kate and the other previous contestants to dance in between all of the filler.
