The former N SYNC singer and Johnson became the second couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of theDancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.
"I'll miss everybody out here, because everybody was great and I had a great time. You know what? For me, I'm actually going to a wedding tomorrow, so I don't give a damn! I'm going to have a good time! I'm going to be honest, everybody had a good time here. I know that me and Kym, I didn't let you down. We had a great time. People said I was fun and that's all that matters. I don't care, God bless you guys for your votes. I appreciate it; I respect it. But as long as I had fun, I don't care what your votes say, but I appreciate it. Thank you very much," Fatone said following his ouster.
IndyCar racer Helio Castroneves and partner Chelsie Hightower were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Fatone and Johnson's ouster, as Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet noted they were actually the other couple in the bottom two based on the combination of the judges' scoring and home viewer votes from the prior performance show.
Castroneves and Hightower finished in sixth place on the judges' leaderboard after they performed a jive routine which earned 23 points. Castroneves won Dancing with the Stars' fifth season in 2007 with Julianne Hough.
