The Kardashian sisters are relieved that their brother Rob Kardashian survived the first week of Dancing with the Stars. But they're outraged that he even ended up in the bottom three, while Elisabetta Canalis remained safe from elimination.
"There is NO way Rob Kardashian was trending worldwide last night and in the bottom 3. Impossible!" Kourtney Kardashian, 32, twittered Tuesday night. "HOW IS ELISABETTA SAFE?!??! HOW?! Seriously!!!"
And she wasn't the only sister to share how she really felt about the votes: Khloe Kardashian, 27, shared her sister's post, adding, "Agreed! So odd."
After Monday night's opening dances, Canalis, 33, and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy finished with a 15, the night's second-lowest score. But on Tuesday night, Canalis was not in the bottom three, even though she scored lower than both Kardashian and TV anchor Nancy Grace. (The last contestant in the bottom three was basketball player Ron Artest -- a.k.a. Metta World Peace -- who received the lowest score from the judges.)
"This just can't be!" Kim, 30, complained during the results broadcast. "Rob in the bottom three is impossible! He did soooo good!"
But, it turns out the "bottom three" wasn't necessarily the couples with the lowest combined scores. It seems they were simply chosen by the producers to create suspense. After revealing that Rob was safe, host Tom Bergeron explained: "Metta and Peeta and Nancy and Tristan are in jeopardy -- though not necessarily the bottom two. One of these couples had the lowest combined scores."
Ultimately Artest was sent off the ballroom and the "Kardashian Mafia" prevailed, keeping the sisters' 24-year-old brother safe for another week.
"Even though I'm beyond thrilled my brother is SAFE, I'm sad that Ron was first to go," Kourtney said. "He didn't deserve it."
It sounds like they think Cannalis did.
