Ousted 'Dancing with the Stars' celeb Aiden Turner: I feel I got robbed


By Christopher Rocchio, 04/14/2010 

Aiden Turner and professional partner Edyta Sliwinska aren't being shy when it comes to claiming their Dancing with the Stars' journey ended too soon.

"I'm going to editorialize a little bit Aiden. You got robbed," said Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos to the former All My Children actor on Wednesday morning.

"Thank you very much sir. I feel I got robbed," responded Turner.

"Me too," added Sliwinska, who also participated in the GMA appearance.  "I agree with that. The judges really hated us. I think the scores were so low that even if we got great votes it was kind of hard to survive."

"They're either sitting on nails because they're grumpy, or we did something to them in a past life," said Turner.

Turner and Sliwinska became the third couple eliminated from Dancing with the Stars' tenth season during last night's live results show based on the combination of the judges' scores they received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.

Turner said he was especially upset because he feels he followed some specific advice given to him by judge Len Goodman.

"Len said, 'Be more carefree and not careful.' So I went out there and I did what Len said, and then they robbed me again," said Turner on GMA. "Where's the appreciation?"

The couple was also apparently upset by the fact that producers decided to air footage of them arguing during a recent rehearsal -- which they said was an isolated incident.

"We cared so much and we're so emotionally invested in the process. But I promise you, this was 10 minutes out of the hours and hours of rehearsal," said Sliwinska.

"That was a little argument that we had because we were both so tired and exhausted because we were frustrated -- you can't avoid that in a process of learning a new dance in five days."

"The producers chose to show that piece of rehearsal..." said Sliwinska before being cut off by Turner.

"The drama," he added. "They love the drama."

While the judges and producers might not be Sliwinska's most favorite people right now, she did have good things to say about the fans -- including the studio audience which gave the couple a standing ovation after their elimination was revealed.

"That's why we do it. We don't really do it for the three judges -- who are most of the time very critical and harsh. We do it for the audience," she said.

"We do it to bring entertainment to people, and it's really, really awesome to see they gave a standing ovation to Aiden and gave us some love because it was harsh to be eliminated so early."

Despite his belief that he was ousted to early, Turner said he's glad he took the opportunity to participate in the show.

"I'm really glad I did it. It's a big challenge, and that's one of the reasons that I did it," he said. "To be comfortable -- it may feel good -- but you've got to do things in life that put you out of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself. You've got to live like you're dying."
