Ron Artest on Elimination: “I didn’t put in enough time and effort”

Ron Artest (Metta World Peace) was the first person eliminated from Dancing with the Stars and it was not a shocker since he was at the bottom of the leader board, but he knows he didn’t give the performance his all.

“We had the lowest scores, you know. Nothing’s rigged,” Ron told Shaun Robinson from Access Hollywood after his elimination. “I didn’t really put in enough time and effort to go on to the next day.”

“I’m a clown. I think I was maybe having too much fun. But, you know, somebody had to go early and first. Somebody had to go,” he told Shaun. “But I had a blast. The cast is great, all the dancers. I met new people, new personalities. I got a chance to experience a new thing.”
