'Dancing With the Stars' 2015: Paula Deen Eliminated, But She's Excited to See Her Grandbabies

The celebrity TV chef said doing "DWTS" has "been such a wonderful journey."

Despite her best efforts to “strike a pose,” Deen was voted off in week six of the competition. She didn’t seem too disappointed, however.

The 68-year-old said she’s thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Dancing’ experience, but was also looking forward to going home.

“Listen Tom, it has been wonderful,” she began. “I have been like a fish out of water for six weeks. It has been such a wonderful journey. It took them a long time to convince me to do this. It was wonderful. It was worth it. It was worth it.”

“I’m wondering what happened to that sexy little beast from last week?,” she questioned. “I thought the costumes overwhelmed you a little bit.”

There were three top scorers in tonight’s competition, all earning a perfect score of 40 from the judges.

Tonight’s standout moment: Carlos PenaVega ripped his shirt off during his sexy rumba with professional partner Witney Carson to Ginuwine’s “Pony” from the steamy movie, “Magic Mike.” His chiseled abs definitely didn’t disappoint the audience, or the judges. Tonioli, for one, went wild. “You’ve answered my prayers,” the judge said, fanning himself. Newton-John said she was speechless after the performance. “I think maybe you missed your calling,” she quipped. “There’s a place for you in Vegas if you ever want to go there.” Hough agreed, calling it “the sexiest rumba” she’s ever seen.
