The soap star and Kym became the eighth couple eliminated 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.
"This has been an amazing experience because I thought I was going to be done after like two weeks. I thought I'd go back to Hawaii and then come back for the Tuesday night finale, but Kym has choreographed the most amazing routines and she catered them towards my two left feet and it got us this far. So I've really got to say it's been an amazing experience and I've really got a ballroom frame now! I'm going to take that with me [to Hawaii]," Ingo said following his ouster.
"I really want to see [the final four couples] battle it out, because I think it's a really close competition and it's going to be great."
Added Kym in a video montage, "He's grown so much through this competition. He had no dance experience and he's now doing things that I think have surprised him, things that he thought he couldn't do, and that's what it's all about. You've done an amazing job and I'm very proud of you."
Ingo and Kym finished in fifth -- and last -- place on Monday night's leaderboard after receiving a total of 51 out of 60 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. After taking the stage with a samba routine that received 24 points from the judges, the couple came back to perform a Charleston routine which earned 27 more points. Each dance was eligible to receive up to 30 possible points.
