Model Paulina Porizkova First to Be Eliminated From 'Dancing With the Stars'

Model Paulina Porizkova was the first to be eliminated from ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," which began its fourth season last week.

Porizkova and her partner, first-season champ Alec Mazo, were kicked out of the competition during Tuesday's results show.

"I feel like the kid on the playground made by the parents to go home when they're not ready yet," the 41-year-old beauty said, adding that she was "predictably bummed" about the decision.

Before the results were announced, she looked like she was about to cry.

She and Mazo collected 40 points for their two dances, outscoring the last-place couples -- Billy Ray Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff and Clyde Drexler and Elena Grinenko -- who tied with 34 points each.

Judge Bruno Tonioli told Porizkova she had "class oozing from every pore."

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is eliminated each week.

"I guess my fan base was my family and they were not extensive enough," Porizkova said.

Besides Drexler and Cyrus, remaining contenders include former "Beverly Hills 90210" star Ian Ziering, former 'N Sync member Joey Fatone, boxer Laila Ali, Miss USA 2004 Shandi Finnessey, actor John Ratzenberger, former "Entertainment Tonight" host Leeza Gibbons, activist Heather Mills and Olympic skater Apolo Anton Ohno.

When asked which couple will win the competition, Porizkova purred: "They're all winners to me."
