Race car driver Helio Castroneves and his pro partner Chelsie Hightower were eliminated Tuesday night on Week 3 of "Dancing with the Stars All Stars" 2012 season.
Surprisingly, Castroneves and Hightower were not the couple with the worst scores from Monday's competition. However viewers' votes were not enough to save them and keep them in the dance floor. Castroneves and his partner received three 8.5s from the judges after performing their dance on Monday for a total of 25.5. The worst score was held by Bristol Palin with 22.5 points, however tonight Palin and Mark Ballas were the first couple to be saved from the bottom three tonight, just minutes before the elimination was announced.
