The last dance for Chaz Bono as he exits 'DWTS'

Wednesday October 26, 2011

Chaz Bono has received his marching orders on Dancing With The Stars.

Tuesday's edition of the show marked the last dance for Cher's son.

Despite his cheerful, spirited style, he'd struggled from the beginning and came in last in the judges' assessment.

The transgender activist,who was born female and underwent surgery to become male, said he came on the programme "to show America a different kind of man".

He continued: "If there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would've 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 can have a wonderful great life and be successful and happy"

Six celebrity contestants remain, including Ricki Lake and David Arquette.

Judges' scores combined with viewer votes determine who leaves the show each week.
