Carson Kressley just couldn't cut it in week five of the Dancing With the Stars competition.
The 41-year-old fashionista and TV personality was sent packing on Tuesday's results show, after falling in the bottom two with pro partner Anna Trebunskaya and other low scorer Hope Solo.
As soon as he was named to the bottom two with soccer star Solo, Kressley tells Us Weekly knew he'd be eliminated.
"[Anna and I] were like, 'We're toast… we're a crouton,'" he told Us backstage after his exit. When they played the taped montage, Kressley jokes "I was like, 'Oh my God, it's like I've died!'"
Kidding aside, Kressley says he appreciates all that his pro partner Trebunskaya has taught him — and assures Us that her training wasn't for naught.
"Anna's so patient and so kind — she's like a hot Mother Teresa," Kressley raves of his pro. "This process has made me so aware of my body, my posture [and] the way your clothes fit and how people move and charisma and confidence. I'm going to keep dancing!"
Kressley says that his friendship with Trebunskaya will continue long after the show.
"We have a really special bond because we spent hours and hours together. She's probably going to name her first baby after me. Boy or girl, it works either way," Kressley jokes.
