Reality star Kendra Wilkinson now has one less reality show to report to. The former Girl Next Door, who now appears in her own namesake series, was dismissed Tuesday from "Dancing With the Stars."

Wilkinson earned praise from the judges on Monday's episode for a tango that one judge called "nothing but sophistication, elegance, and confidence," but viewers failed to keep the former Playboy model in the contest.

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which celebrity is ousted each week.

Wilkinson joins previously dismissed dancers Chris Jericho, Sugar Ray Leonard, Wendy Williams, Mike Catherwood and Petra Nemcova.

Returning to dance next week will be Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Chelsea Kane, Hines Ward and Romeo.
