Pro Football HOFer Emmitt Smith and U.S. speedskater Apolo Ohno were both eliminated from ABC’s “DWTS” last night. Co-host Brooke Burke told Ohno that he “has been the consummate professional.” Ohno: “This show is amazing for far beyond just what the Mirror Ball Trophy has in store for people and every single person who does this show is a champion” (“DWTS,” ABC, 11/20). After being eliminated, Smith and Ohno, along with their dance partners Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff, appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later last night. Host Jimmy Kimmel said Smith and Ohno were both “champions of sport and dancing who tonight tasted the most bitter Thanksgiving dish of all, defeat.” Kimmel said if Smith and Ohno had been eliminated in their respective sports, they would “not be in a good mood that night.” Ohno: “But this is different.” Kimmel replied, “This is different because it’s not really a sport and it’s nonsense.” Kimmel asked Smith, “Which is more painful: Losing tonight or watching the Cowboys play football?” Smith: “Watching the Cowboys play football right now” (“Jimmy Kimmel Live,” ABC, 11/20).
