She was praised as a "golden goddess" on Monday, but now Petra Nemcova is a "Dancing With the Stars" reject. The model and humanitarian was dismissed from the hit ABC show on Tuesday.

She came into the episode in a three-way-tie for last place, but viewers failed to keep her in the competition. Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which celebrity is ousted each week.

Nemcova joins fellow show outcasts Sugar Ray Leonard, Wendy Williams and radio host Mike Catherwood.

Returning to dance on Monday's episode will be actors Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio and Chelsea Kane, athletes Hines Ward and Chris Jericho, singer Romeo and reality star Kendra Wilkinson.
