“Dancing With the Stars”: Ryan Lochte gets voted off

Lochte, along with partner Cheryl Burke, were eliminated from the show on Monday. The pair along with six other competitors performed a Halloween-themed routine. Co-host Erin Andrews asked Lochte what he had learned from the time spent on the show.

“I learned a lot about myself, that I could – that no matter how hard I get knocked down I can keep fighting. I’m sad I’m going home but everyone here has touched me in a special place right here” – said Lochte afterward.

Lochte joined the show in hopes of redeeming his reputation after the Rio scandal in which he and three teammates faked a story about a robbery at a gas station. USA swimming gave him a 10-month ban which he’s currently serving. On his “Dancing With the Stars” debut two protesters stormed the ballroom floor wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts.
