'Dancing with the Stars': Supermodel Petra Nemcova Voted Off

Bob D'Amico/ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Supermodel Petra Nemcova and partner Dmitry Chaplin were voted off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night after receiving the lowest overall combined total of judges’ scores and viewer votes.  The couple had danced a fast-moving, Las Vegas-inspired quickstep to Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas" Monday that ended with the supermodel throwing casino chips into the air.  Judge Carrie Ann Inaba noted afterwards that Nemcova had made a few stumbles on the dance floor.

After getting the bad news Tuesday, Nemcova told co-host Brooke Burke the dancing experience has been a life-changing journey for her.  The supermodel also revealed that people have even been inspired by her efforts to organize dance-a-thons at schools to raise money for her charity foundation for children, the Happy Hearts Fund.

Tuesday’s "Macy’s Stars of Dance" performance told the story of a small-town boy’s journey through the Big Apple in pursuit of the American dream.  Jamal Sims, whose choreography credits include the movies Footloose and Step Up as well as numbers for Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, choreographed and starred in the performance.  The results show also featured Toby Keith performing his hits "Should’ve Been a Cowboy" and "American Soldier."

There are seven couples remaining going into next week’s competition, dubbed Guilty Pleasure week, which will feature the contestants dancing to what host Tom Bergeron describes as “Songs you love but are afraid to admit you love.”  Next week will also feature a results show musical performance by ousted American Idol singer Pia Toscano, accompanied by a dance performance by Mark Ballas.  Toscano and Ballas have recently made headlines for a friendship that many believe is more than platonic.  Also look for former boy bands Backstreet Boys and NKOTB, aka New Kids on the Block, to perform on next week's results show.

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.

The two were introduced by mutual friends and have been dating for eight months. A wedding date has yet to be confirmed.

Nemcova, 31, was previously engaged to photographer Simon Atlee, who was killed in the December 2004 tsunami that resulted from a powerful earthquake beneath the Indian Ocean.

The Czech model in 2005 established the Happy Hearts Foundation to aid children affected by the tsunami disaster.
