Wayne, Shmayne. No offense to Mr. Las Vegas, but the most depressing thing about last night’s elimination was the exit of Latin pro Cheryl Burke. This is the earliest departure for the competition’s only two-time champ, who tangoed her way to first place with both Drew Lachey (season two) and Emmitt Smith (season three). We’ll miss the Californian’s easy smile, bubbly demeanor and determination to make her 65-year-old partner shine.
So, now that Burke has packed up her sequins, who is your favorite pro? And who would you like to see Cheryl paired with for season six?–Caryn Midler
