Tom and his co-host, Samantha Harris, said that because Misty May-Treanor withdrew from the program due to an injury, taking her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy with her, no one needed to be eliminated on Tuesday night.

Though no one went home, Tom and Samantha confirmed that the votes cast this week for the various contestants will carry forward. The total number of votes received in this week’s competition plus the votes cast next Monday will be added together. The total number of votes from the two days will determine who will leave the ballroom on the October 14 episode of “DWTS.”

The volleyball champ underwent surgery to repair the injury on Tuesday and is now home resting, her rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.

With months of recuperation ahead of her, she will not return to compete on the program, however Misty indicated on Monday night, she may be back to cheer her fellow celebrities on.
