'The Wonder Years' Star Danica McKellar Eliminated From DWTS

Danica McKellar and partner Val Chmerkovskiy said goodbye to the "Dancing With The Stars" stage tonight as they are the latest couple to be eliminated.

The duo performed the tango this week and got a near perfect score of 38 out of 40. Unfortunately, it didn't save them from last week's votes. "The Wonder Years" star was all smiles bidding adieu to the show.

TOM: "Danica and Val."

DANICA: "It's been absolutely amazing. I had the best time ever and I didn't want to see any of them eliminated so I guess it works out."

CarterMatt commended Danica's powerful tango even after recovering from a broken rib during rehearsal last week.

"Danica brought fun and passion to almost every single thing that she did. She was not only extremely fun, but was also a fighter. She battled a number of injuries over the course of the season, with the most notable one being a broken rib. However, she continued to fight through whatever pain she was in, and continue to press onward without fear."

TV Grapevine agreed and said the music and choreography made it the best tango on the show so far.

Danica and Val left tonight standing fourth on the judges leaderboard.
