Jake Pavelka dumped by Dancing with the Stars voters

Jake Pavelka’s unbottoned shirt, pantsless cha cha, constant updates on Twitter, and Bachelor exposure couldn’t keep him on Dancing with the Stars 10, as voters dumped a reality star for the second week in a row.

With Vienna looking on, Jake choked up when he called his pro partner Chelsie Hightower “one of my best friends.” A few moments earlier, Jake–who was wearing a shirt held on by a single button at the bottom this time–said, “I want to thank Texas, I want to thank all the Mavericks fans, Canada, all the tweets, Facebooks, everybody that supported me.” There’s more than one Facebook? And is he thanking his own posts on Twitter or just mangling terminology?

It’s probably the latter, because post-elimination, Jake tweeted, “Well guys, I did everything I could. Layed it all out there on the dance floor. I’m pretty bumbed… :(” Later, he wrote, “I’m going to focus my full attention on Vienna now. I asked for her hand and I meant it! I’m so lucky to have her!”
