SPOILER ALERT!

DO NOT CONTINUE READING UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW THE RESULTS.

Last night's episode of Dancing With the Stars had some genuine tension, and people really weren't sure who would go home. Hope Solo and her pro-partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy scored a 20 from the judges. Chaz Bono and his pro-partner Lacey Schwimmer only got 19. Normally we'd assume Maksim (his fans call him "Maks") would win. Even though he can be arrogant at times, he's super sexy and both the ladies and gays love him. But he and Hope had a run-in with judge Len, and some viewers wondered if that would turn off voters.

Then there's Chaz. While some viewers had no problems hating on him, others rallied in support. Did Chaz have those viewers plus the almighty gay community backing him up, or did the gays get distracted by cocktails and shiny things and forget to vote? Or just stopped watching the show? Or just stopped caring?

Who knows for sure, but the end result was...

(We're trying to make this like a reality show. And we're hoping you have to scroll a bit for the answer so that if you didn't want to have the answer spoiled for you, and you still clicked on the post even though we clearly warned you that we'd reveal the answer, that this is your last line of defense to not find out.)

Chaz got the boot.

When host Tom Bergeron asked Chaz if he had any regrets, Chaz offered a lovely closing comment for the crowd. It was clear, concise, and quite beautiful. Check out the short video clip, or read his quote below.

"I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man," Chaz said, to which the audience and fellow contestants applauded. "And I know that if there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different. So I dedicate everything I did to all the people out there like me, and especially the kids and teens who are struggling. You know, you can have a wonderful, great life and be successful and happy."
