Petra Nemcova couldn’t outlast “America Night” on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Having formed an education charity that focuses on places hit by natural disasters, Nemcova called her “Dancing” experience a “life changing journey” and said she’s started to do “dance-a-thons” at the schools she visits.
Her quickstep to Elvis' “Viva Las Vegas” on Monday's "American Night" had landed her in a three-way tie at the bottom of the leaderboard with reality star Kendra Wilkinson and “Karate Kid” Ralph Macchio.
But Nemcova and pro-wrestler Chris Jericho were the final two to learn their fate on Tuesday, despite Jericho having achieved his personal best a night earlier.
Head judge Len Goodman said there was “no justice” that either could get the boot.
Other celebrities set to return next week are: footballer and increasingly likely frontrunner Hines Ward, Emmy-winner Kirstie Alley, Disney star Chelsea Kane and musician Romeo.
In a reality competition twist, “American Idol” cast-off Pia Toscano will perform on the show next Tuesday with “Dancing” pro Mark Ballas, her rumored beau, EW.com reported.
