Ewww!

Prior to his Tuesday night elimination on Dancing with the Stars, soap hunk Aiden Turner stayed energized with Fear Factor-inspired smoothies.

"I'm drinking a lot of protein shakes from [organic market] Erewhon, right around the corner" Turner told UsMagazine.com at a Monday event. He listed the ingredients, said to "put you in a zen place": almond butter, Chinese herbs including "dragon bone"....and "black ants."

Huh? "Yes, black ants," Turner confirmed. "They are blended into your smoothie, you don't taste them."

The magic potion "costs like $30," he said. "It really relieves anxiety."'

Alas, even with the pricey shake, Turner became the third celeb booted on Tuesday. "It's fate, you know? You can't argue with fate," he told Us after getting the boot.

His partner Edyta Sliwinska complained to Us that the judges "didn't really give him a chance to spread his wings."

Turner called the experience " a lot more emotionally exhausting than I thought." While he'll miss "working really hard" and "developing friendships" with his costars, he's ready for some R&R, too: "I am looking forward to getting some sleep, being able to have an hour long bath!

And the dancing won't stop. "I'm going to keep dancing -- at gas stations, Starbucks, the Coffee Bean. I'm going to be dancing at In & Out Burger. On the street, in the park, wherever!"
