Sadly, Ben Cohen Can't Muscle Enough Votes to Save Himself on 'Strictly Come Dancing': VIDEO


Ben Cohen's biceps and blue suspenders couldn't save him this week, and the rugby star and LGBT ally got the boot from Strictly Come Dancing, following a musclebound performance of the Charleston.

Wrote Cohen on Facebook: "Thank you all so much for the support during my time on Strictly Come Dancing. I had a blast and met some great people. A big Thank You to Kristina Rihanoff for teaching me to dance. You have a patient of a Saint and made my Journey fun and exciting. Thanks Ben"

Watch his final performance, AFTER THE JUMP...

  5. He could ask me to dance any time.
    @Jack Ford, it has nothing to do with love to Ben, just a competition.
    @Ankerich, keep that good spirit.

  6. ANKERICH, everyone looks ugly in bitter. I bet you're a blast at parties!

  7. @Ankerich, try doing a little research before you crap all over someone for doing good. What exactly have you done for other lately? With that attitude, I am guessing not much. Go troll somewhere else.

  9. What is it with people that see others being happy & making many others happy (even if it is simply from their smile or a dance) & yet you make out they are committing some kind of crime? Get a fn life will ya.

  10. The thing that's amazing about Ben is that he moves so well with all that muscle. Too much muscle keeps you from attaining a wide array of motion and it makes you look "hulky" when you dance. His personality...geez! His personality! so charismatic. He moves well for a big guy with hearing loss. And I agree with Bandanajack; he finally found his groove--but it was too late. BTW, most people on this show and America's version are out to reinvent themselves and get people to pay attention to them and their causes; so -- anyone who points to the obvious allows people to view their small minds and that's kind of embarrassing for that person.

  11. "A patient of a saint"? What is she, a nurse in a catholic hospital?

  12. Oh, his fetish porn career would be secure if he were brave enough. Sadly, dancing is strictly for gay males that pass as str8.

  13. Ben, Ben, BEN!!! What a good sport you are. I've enjoyed watching you enjoy this different pursuit in your most active and varied life! Keep it up! What will you do next??
