Battle Of The Blondes In Bottom 2 On ‘Dancing's' Latest Elimination Night

"Dancing with the Stars" inched one step closer to the finals on Tuesday night as they eliminated another celebrity from the competition.

Tuesday's elimination show became a battle of the blondes in the bottom two — between ESPN's Erin Andrews and former "Baywatch" babe Pamela Anderson.

Erin, however, was saved to dance another day with her professional partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, while Pamela and her partner, Damian Whitewood, were eliminated from the competition.

"This has been one of the best experiences of my life and that says a lot," Pamela laughed after she heard the elimination news.

Before taking to the ballroom floor one last time to dance with Damian, who with Pamela's exit ended his first ever "Dancing" season, the actress offered her gratitude to her Australian partner.

"Damian's amazing. I just want to thank him. I never knew that I could dance or I don't really know if I can dance yet, but he just helped me so much," she said. "I just want to thank you very much for doing this and I'm sure he's going to be around a really long time with you guys."

"Dancing" co-host Tom Bergeron revealed that the show had actually approached Pamela to join during Season 1, and he revealed that he personally was going to miss having the actress' bubbly presence around.

While Pamela was disappointed by her exit, it was revealed earlier in the night that she had suffered an injury.

The injury prevented her from participating in an encore cha cha cha with Team Gaga — along with fellow "Stars" Nicole Scherzinger and Chad Ochocinco.

The nature of her injury, however, was not immediately disclosed.
