US Snowboarder Louie Vito just barely safe on Dancing with the Stars

On Monday night US Snowboard Team member Louie Vito didn’t fare well with the judges on Dancing with the Stars.

His Texas Two-Step performed with partner Chelsie Hightower nabbed him only a meager 15 points, which put him in the bottom two for scores.

But last night during the DWTS elimination show, Vito managed to fare well with voters, as he made it through to yet another round on the dance floor. Ultimate fighter Chuck Liddell was the celebrity dancer to get the boot, or get knocked out, if you will.

Apparently, Vito is completely aware of his strength with fans and grateful, too. He wrote on his Facebook page: “THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED!!! You are all the reason I am still on the show straight UP!!!!!!”

Here’s to another week on Dancing with the Stars. We at the Ski Channel look forward to what Vito and Hightower have in store, and as always, implore you to keep those votes coming! Dances next week will include the Paso Doble and group Hustle. We’re sure Vito will bring it.
