Dancing with the Stars eliminated Sean Lowe and his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd during Tuesday night's seventh live sixteenth-season results show on ABC.

The Bachelor star and Peta became the seventh couple eliminated from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.

"I have enjoyed every second of [this experience]. I truly am blessed to have taken part in this with all these stars. I'm still just a normal guy from Dallas. What an incredible opportunity," Sean told Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet following his ouster.

Added the reality TV star in a video montage, "My first steps were so awkward. I had no idea what I was doing. I'm proud of the fact that I've challenged myself to do something that doesn't come easy to me, and ontop of that, I'm walking away with a lot of new friends and this has just been the most amazing journey that I've ever experienced."

"This season has just been so much fun and he is just the most humble, the most wonderful guy that I could've asked for for this season. He's just made it so much fun for me," Peta added.

Monday night's performance show featured the competition's six remaining celebrity and professional pairings performing an individual routine and then a "trio dance" in which each couple took the stage with a previously-eliminated professional or dance troupe member. Each dance was eligible to receive up to 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Sean and Peta finished in sixth -- and last -- place with a total of only 42 out of 60 possible points on Monday night's leaderboard after they danced an individual tango routine that received 21 points from the judges and then a jazz routine for their trio performance which earned 21 points as well. The couple danced with Sharna Burgess.

NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Sean and Peta's ouster, however, Brooke revealed they were not necessarily one of the bottom-two couples based on the combination of the judges' scores and America's vote.

Jacoby and Karina landed in fourth place on the judges' leaderboard with 52 total points. After dancing their individual Viennese waltz which received 27 points, the couple danced alongside Cheryl Burke for a paso doble routine that earned 25 additional points. 

Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy finished in first place with a total of 58 points on the judges' leaderboard following their two routines. After Zendaya and Val earned 28 points for their foxtrot, they performed a salsa routine with Gleb Savchenko which received a score of 30 from the judges -- the first perfect score of the season.

Alexandra "Aly" Raisman, a 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast, and partner Mark Ballas finished in second place on the leaderboard with 56 total points. They initially danced an Argentine tango which received 29 points from the judges and then were joined by Henry Byalikov for a jive performance that earned an additional 27 points.

Third place went to former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough after they racked in a total of 55 points from the judges. Kellie and Derek first took the stage with a Viennese waltz that received 28 points and followed it with their trio performance which featured Tristan MacManus. The trio's paso doble earned 27 points.
