Elisabetta Canalis Survives First Week of 'DWTS'

Elisabetta Canalis Survives First Week of 'DWTS'

Elisabetta Canalis and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy appear on Dancing with the Stars‘ results show on Tuesday (September 20) in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old Italian model and actress survived the first week of the competition, while Robert Kardashian, Ron Artest, and Nancy Grace were in the bottom three.

Ron, who was referred to by his new name, Metta World Peace, was eventually eliminated at the end of the night.

During Monday night’s premiere, Elisabetta‘s video package included a photo of her and ex George Clooney, which she “didn’t really like.”

“But it’s okay,” she told TV Guide. “I didn’t know it [was going to be part of my introduction].”

    nice to see dance

  • moon

    nice girl, i hope she’ll continue

  • Bruce Redwood

    Elisabetta Canalis is an amazing dancer. Good for her to make it to the next round. She deserves it. It was an equisite performance, just wonderful.

  • federica

    lovely woman!

  • csa

    She looks like a man!!!!!

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    @Bruce Redwood: Didn’t she get one of the lowest marks?

  • LMFAO

    Of course they used a picture of Clooney. The only reason she was invited to be on the show is because of him and their recent split. LMAO. Otherwise people would really have no idea who she is or why she was cast on the show,this season. LMAO. Producers probably like the fact that her eternal player ex Clooney is now dating a girl that was once on DWTS also. Don’t be surprised if she ends up in the audience to “support” this season contestants. As they try to create a Stacy and Elisbetta show down for ratings LMAO. Seriously she dated him for the fame,she wouldn’t have this gig let alone many others if it wasn’t for the fact she dated. Yet she is upset they used a picture of her and Clooney? LMAO. These famewhoring girls sometimes are just too funny XD
    @BloodbuzzOhio: Yeah you are right she kind of does. She has reached that level of scary skinny which makes her strong features look extremely” man-esque”. Someone said she looks like Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. I can see it here in these pictures. But boy is that an insult for both Steven and her LMAO Most likely she will try to get as thin as possible before her time on the show is over so she can get a ” Elisabetta is too skinny and people are worried” UsWeeklystory lol and blame it on her split with Clooney. Extending her 15 mins of fame.

    why does everyone get all worked up over a fixed contest???? anyway, canalis stunk and everyone knows it. anyone who saw the video of her san remo fiasco know she can’t dance. yet they refer to that video as evidence of her dancing expertise! pole dancers and lap dancers are not dancers. they are tramps who take their clothes off for money. she should be shot for putting her exes picture in her intro. she’s trying to say she had nothing to do with it, but she is a liar. no one would know who she is otherwise and his connections will keep her on for awhile. it is obvious she is brainless and cannot focus long enough to learn a few steps and look credible. she is too busy looking at herself on the teleprompter. she’s out in three rounds. what a true and utter low life she is. will she ever go away?

  • federica

    @LMFAO:

    yes of course she was invited for Clooney but not for their break-up, even in the last year she had been contacted by DWTS but she could not do it foer sanremo festival…elisabetta said it in her last interview in Italy

  • Mary V

    Not sure why she did nto go, frankly she was stiff and off mark the entire time. She has a dynamic body but the others did better. I thought Ron did better.

  • Miami D

    I’m sorry, but her dancing sucked big time!! I used to like her when she was with Clooney, I thought she had a cool attitude. However, since they broke up it’s like all she can do is run around half naked, I suppose she’s trying to make him jealous, and looking unsure of herself. Her costume is ridiculous, again almost naked and her moves were wooden.

    Elisabetta – girl, get your confidence back!!!

  • catchy

    this outfit looks ugly

  • Muffins

    She’s with Joaquin Phoenix now. They shouldn’t be showing pics of George Clooney.

    I thought she danced pretty good.

  • Zooey

    @Miami D
    I’m agree with you. But do you think it is simple?…How did you feel after your major break up?
    In her country she is definetely self-confident…

    Anyway, her dance was not that bad…I liked it!:-)

  • juliette

    She was stiff. She can’t feel the music so she will not improve with time. I know many people who voted for her just to keep Val in competition. They are not her fans but his. Such a shame that one of the most accomplished dancers (Val) got a piece of wood as a partner.

  • stream

    duh! They get booted in order of celebrity. Wanna bet Chaz will be finalist?

  • jan

    Elisabeta will be next, unless Val’s fans keep her because of him. After that – Nancy’ll be booted. If Kardashians stop paying for votes, this brat Rob will be next. Chaz will go after him, as grace period ends after a month. After Chaz, Carson will go home. He is funny but can’t dance. People will keep him for laugh but he’ll be gone before those who can dance leave. Kristen will follow him.

  • betta

    Just watched her clip on YouTube and I don’t think she did as awful as some of you are making out. She certainly did better than Katie Holmes after her months and months of lessons on So You Think You Can Dance. I think the judges were right–she needs to develop confidence in herself. Don’t think she’ll go all the way to the top, but most likely will last at least another few weeks. Nancy Grace and Rob Kardashian were far worse than she was.

  • william

    elisabetta not feminine at all and not in agood way make up can not hide that !
    her dance was bad bad bad she is just not shining at anything she do !

  • Angela

    poor Elisabeth!!
    “come back to Italyyyyy!!!”

  • observer

    ” Robert Kardashian, Ron Artest, and Nancy Grace were in the bottom three.”
    Wrong, JustJared. Canalis was next to last, above only Artest. They randomly throw contestants together for the results show to cause drama. Canalis actually ranked 11th out of the 12 contestants.

  • observer

    11th place out of 12, above only a pro athlete who didn’t even care enough about winning to tweet about it.

    Canalis in her usual famewh*re unethical fashion, asked Italians, who don’t even get the show, to go online and vote for her.
    http://levipere.com/2011/09/17/la-canalis-chiede-agli-italiani-di-votarla-a-dwts/
    I’m already thinking the results are fixed, and ABC is in on it. ABC even put a completely fictional bio of her on their website. Something is fishy, and it smells of overripe Italian cokewhore.

  • iron man

    she’s awful ridicolous and untalentless!
    she will come back under the Hollywood night club’s table of soccers and rich men!!!
    she’s dancing at DWTS as GC contract!
