Cristian de la Fuente is Dancing with Scars

Dancing with the Stars' Cristián de la Fuente's booty-shaking quickly came to a halt last night when he pulled a muscle in his left arm, mid-samba. Shortly after completing a series of turns with partner Cheryl Burke, Cristián retreated to the side of the dancefloor and attempted to stretch out his arm. He quickly returned to Cheryl but nearly crushed her when he couldn't support her weight for their next trick step. Though visibily in a ton of pain, the Chilean actor proceeded to help Burke up from their collapse; when asked if he wanted to cut to commercial he replied, "I try to continue. No, I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine," even though he was bowled over in pain. Isn't the manliness enough to make you melt? Unfortunately, Cristián's brave face didn't work on the judges. They gave the injured star and his partner a 21 for their routine—the lowest score of the season!
