After being eliminated from the show last night (2nd November 2010) Rick Fox said that taking part in Dancing With The Stars has changed his relationship with girlfriend Eliza Dushku for the better. Despite recording his highest score of the series so far, the former basketball star was eventually given the boot, much to the dismay of Dushku and his mother who watched from the audience.
After being ousted on the show's commemorative 200th episode, the 41-year-old remained in good spirits, saying, "You stay in a positive frame of mind. It's been a transformational journey for me. It's been amazing. My relationship has been transformed with my girlfriend and with my daughter". Despite his elimination, Fox's performance was praised by the judges, with Len Goodman saying, "It was slick, it was quick. Rick, it was good."
The star studded evening, which regularly kept viewers up-to-date with the midterm election results, included live performances from Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart. Fox's elimination means KYLE MASSEY, Jennifer Grey, Brandy, KURT WARNER and Bristol Palin are left to battle it out for this year's prize.
