"Dancing with the Stars" sends another contestant packing

Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold perform on season 16 of "Dancing with the Stars." ABC

It didn't come as a big surprise when champion boxer Victor Ortiz learned his "Dancing with the Stars" fate on Tuesday night. Ortiz and his pro-partner, Lindsay Arnold, received the lowest scores, and subsequently got the boot in week 6.

Ortiz didn't seem very surprised about the elimination, taking it in stride -- almost looking relieved about the news. He thanked the viewers and all the "beautiful people" who supported him along the way during season 16. "I've danced my shoes off," Ortiz said, adding, "I would take nothing back. I had a blast...So at the end of the day it was a heck of an experience and hopefully, these beautiful people will follow me to my next championship but...I'm happy to get this far. I definitely need some dance moves."

Joining Ortiz in the bottom two were "Bachelor" star Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd. They plan to step it up next week -- something about taking Lowe's pants off...ahem...to help boost their votes, Murgatroyd joked.

Surprisingly, Andy Dick, who was tied with Ortiz at the bottom of the individual round, didn't land in the bottom two. The pair only mustered up 18 points this week, with an additional 25 additional points for their group dance as part of Team Samba. But they're sticking around to see another dance.

Right now, the battle seems to be brewing between country singer Kellie Pickler and her partner Derek Hough -- and actress Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy. Both pairs earned almost perfect scores on Monday's Stevie Wonder Night.

Tuesday's show also saw Will.i.am performing "#thatPOWER," with Justin Bieber doing his portion via video.
